In a Troubled Economy, Do You Know How to Survive?

It’s been an interesting two weeks recently with the various articles suddenly appearing in the news. In general, Canadians are concerned about Canada’s economic outlook now that the NDP have so solidly sunk Alberta! The global price of oil has had a direct impact as well, because for reasons I’ll …

“Stand Still and Focus on Me!”

If you follow my blog or have read more than one of my books, you’ll know that God regularly speaks to me about focus and rest in Him no matter what is going on around me.  This came up again part way through the morning service as the congregation sat …

Update on Cashcrate

It was back in July of 2015 when I shared a comparison article between CashCrate and Swagbucks.  At the time, I wasn’t visiting every single day, but I saw potential with CashCrate that I hadn’t seen with Swagbucks.  Here we are now in February of 2016, and I am now …

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. …

What God Did With Life Lessons. . . Amazing!

There is a saying that when life hands you a lemon, make lemonade.  There is a more cynical and destructive version that says if life hands you a lemon, toss it back as hard as you can!  As I was sitting at my dining room table eating breakfast this morning, …

Ruth Chapter 3: Sit Still, my daughter. . .

Ruth 3:18  Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day. I had been in prayer this morning, bringing needs before the Lord and thanking Him, showing appreciation …

From Destructive Sheeple Behaviour in Judges to the Determination of Ruth

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, …
