Good Friends

Friends love all the time. That’s Proverbs 17:17. Agape. They don’t have to want to be around you all the time to still be loving you. Agape. Friends will help you become your full level of awesome.

Emerson on Courage

There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some […]

What Jesus Did and Taught

Luke started his journal of the Acts of the Apostles referring to the things Jesus did and taught. I think it is note worthy that He did, then He taught. Frequently He sent His disciples out to do supernatural work. When they failed or became confused, He then taught. Even when they were on a […]

From Psalm 66                  The Music is HERE Shout to God with joy, all the earth! Sing His name – the name of Jesus! Sing glorious praises to God, all the earth – Lift up the name of Jesus! Your works are awesome, Your power is great Your enemies fear You! All the earth will worship […]

Some people hear you share a story from your life that you think is interesting, and share a similar story, because they want to connect with you – to find something that you have in common. If you show that you value their story, they share more at other times. Your relationship can grow. Other […]
