Your Focus Determines Your Security

Songdove Books - Combination Lock

Sometimes, I like listening to the radio to get a bead on what society is thinking, feeling, and longing for.  Occasionally, listening to Christian radio ends up affording the same opportunity for discovery.  This morning, I was listening to Praise106.5FM again, streaming it over my ‘net connection, when Dan Bremnes’ …

1 Samuel 12: 24 Consider what God has done for you

Songdove Books - Crown Heart

Regular readers of my blog will know that a steady daily devotional time doesn’t always happen.  I went for quite a while judging myself over this until I realized that my daily intake of God’s Word was still happening, just not all in one shot or in the way many …

April Fools – In God’s eyes, who would the fools be?

Songdove Books - April Fools!

It’s a peeve of mine every year.  I warn those near me not to engage in it or face the consequences.  I’m often seen as a kill-joy as a result, and this post will probably be taken in that vein by those who don’t see a problem with the subject …

Songdove Books Author Visit to gr5 class - 30 Days of Advent Colouring Journal

I must ask everyone’s forgiveness.  I just realized that my last blog posting took place near the final weekend in November.  At that time, I was just putting together my latest book: 30 Days of Advent Colouring Journal, and diving into a busy choir season with Kelowna Community Gospel Choir. …

From Destructive Sheeple Behaviour in Judges to the Determination of Ruth

Songdove Books - Ruth and Naomi

My notes for the book of Judges were sparse to say the least.  If there is a book showing the incredible yo-yo effect of followers rather than those who make solid choices, this book was it!  The book of Judges also shows the dangers of not following God’s commands fully, …
