    My Partner

    Her name is Ashley Dawn Pruitt, she is my Wife, my Soulmate, my Partner, and my Friend. I love her so much! I wanted to take a few minutes and share how extra special that she is. While it will not surprise you to know that, next to God, she is my life, there’s something our readers may not know. Of course she is the inspiration to much of my writing, but she is also my first Editor. If she is within ear shot, before it goes on the page she hears it. When I can’t ask her first, she’s the first one I ask when I see her. If…

    Thanksgiving

    Today is Thanksgiving. While we should be thankful every day, it is important to take time to reflect, not on problems, but blessings. Too often, worries fill our days, many times making us numb to more important feelings. Our concerns are real, our trials, are battles that must be faced. However, I watched this morning, a base of soldiers. They were armed, and ready, having already been attacked recently. What they were not, was jaded, or laden with sadness. These faithful volunteers were smiling, playing games, and celebrating. Even though their closest contact with a loved one is a video screen. This year, we have faced, and are facing a…

    Focus On The Baby

    We are blessed to attend the Church, Point Of Mercy in Nashville, Tennessee. Pastor’s message last night was so incredible. It was something that I needed to hear. Lately, I’ve been provided opportunities to overcome. I didn’t realize it as much until the lesson last night. I should have, but too often I tend to panic in the midst of a battle. We see trials as giants, whereas God sees them as contractions. Struggles cease, but the character they give birth to grows throughout our lives and Ministry. Too many times, I discard the child and fret over the birth pains. It would be very easy to allow my trial…

    Sailing Stones

    Isaiah 32:1-2 1 Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment. 2 And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. 1 Corinthians 10:4 4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. It is a scientifically recorded phenomenon, they are called “sailing stones.” They occur in an area of Death Valley National park, called Racetrack Playa. Stones as large as 80…

    A Testimony

    Today, roughly three miles from the Church, we heard three noises and stopped on the side of the road. The tires, and everything else, seemed to be fine. We went on to the Church to unload some supplies. When you step out of the side door of the fellowship hall, you’re on an elevated concrete stoop. It was then that I saw something amazing. Underneath the car, between the driver’s door and back door, was a screwdriver. It was lodged under the car. When I pulled it out, it had not punctured anything. We let the car run for a short while to be sure. The screwdriver itself was also…
