Chuck Norris

This morning I shall share my Chuck Norris story… About 10 years ago, I was at a Christian bookstore in California. I had walked into one of the large hallways to get a little bit of quiet to call my son, Ryan (who was about 10 – 11 years old). While we were talking, Chuck […]

Finding God’s Will

A new friend of mine asked recently me “How can I know God’s will in my life?” This is a common question that I get asked and one of my favorites to answer. Since it comes up often, I thought I would put my response here for others who may be wondering the same…… “To […]
