The one thing that changed my life for the better!

Some days you feel like you’re walking all alone in a scary world, uncertain about your future and the future of your loved ones. But I want to tell you, God is real and He pays attention to every detail of your life. He is still working miracles today. Let me share one. A few years ago, my mom had Alzheimer’s and I needed to move her. I was her power of attorney (POA) so I went to the Social Security office to get her Social Security card (which I needed for the place I wanted to move her to). Turns out Social Security does not accept the POA, and they would only mail her Social Security card to the...

God's Tap on the Shoulder. How do you reply?

The first time I KNEW God was calling to me was when a gal took me to Calvary Chapel, Capo Bch. It was a strange, dark place - an old bowling alley that had been converted into a church. Nothing but folding chairs (hundreds of them) lined across a concrete floor in front of a plain black stage.

God's Tap on the Shoulder

The wonderful feature of spiritual awakening is the profound belief that God is present, good and just. Once a person truly believes that, conviction becomes a gift they embrace. Conviction is God's tap on the shoulder saying, “You're heading (or you've gone) in the wrong direction." It is God's way of inviting you to restore your relationship with Him. Conviction is a blessing."So what does one do once convicted? It’s easy. Confess your sin to God and know that you will be forgiven if your heart is honest and you truly intend not to repeat your behavior. But wait, you say, "I can’t be perfect." That’s okay. God knows that…and He knows your heart. If you err again, you’ll confess...

The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.Nothing more needs to be said, but if you don't believe in God or miracles, you still have time to read Right to the Soul, do the FREE Bible Study Guide, watch the videos and/or contact me. Let's talk and make certain you aren't on track to lose all. Eternity awaits believers and non-believers.
