    A Walk At The HD

    Eleven years ago today, Ashley and I officially started dating. We were walking in the parking lot of Home Depot. To show you how much we knew at the time, we sent her sister off ahead while we talked, real romantic huh? We had been talking since September, and dating since October but this was official boyfriend girlfriend time. She said yes, and the following July, we were married. As I said, we weren’t dating savvy, but we knew that we wanted to spend time learning together. Eleven years later were still head over heels, and still learning. To be honest, we’re not experts, but we know that, you put…

    At the Office

    I’m sitting in my office, looking at some of the blessings that God has given me. My Bibles, my books, a picture of my Wife, Patches, my iPad, my paintings and art stuff, my Batman collectibles. Along with my desk, a guitar from Dad, a violin, and a clarinet. Mementos, which are tangible reminders of moments with loved ones. I am truly a blessed man. Life isn’t about things, but they do reflect life. I don’t know how productive this afternoon will be, but this is definitely one of my favorite moments of it. I pray you all have a place that gives you comfort, perspective, and opportunity, like this…

    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…

    The Story Of Prayer

    This is the story of a King and one or more of His warriors going into battle. Prayer is not a passive activity, it is a heart felt activity committed to saving souls and lives. Prayer is the story of a King and one or more of His warriors going into battle. The warriors approach the Throne Room Of The King. They bow in honor, and then submit their request to the Sovereign. He draws His sword, and the three of them journey into battle against a common foe. The warriors are not concerned for their own safety, they are focused on The King, and on each other. The members…

    The Book Of Ruth 30 By 30

    As you know, for the last few months, we’ve been working on, and sharing part of a commentary on the book of Ruth. It is one of my favorite books of The Bible. It’s so rich in content, and provides the background on David’s family. We have wanted to bring this to you for some time, and are in the process of finishing it up now. As you know, I attend Church, and am on staff at Point Of Mercy in Nashville, Tennessee. We are blessed to feed a number of people every Sunday, both physically and spiritually. Our Church has literally outgrown our current facility. Rather than going in…

    Upcoming Projects & Feedback

    I wanted to share some of our upcoming projects with our readers. As you know, Sky Bridge: The Garden Serial is nearing a close. We’re very excited about the way that it is wrapping up. Once finished, we hope to publish the entire volume as an eBook on our amazon page, amazon.com/author/pruittwrites. Another project coming to amazon in the future will be “Mayor”. For our “Balloon” fans, you may remember a brief reference to Mayor Stewart Carpelli. His fictional biography will feature a political conflict between him and Finney Landstreet. Two true sons of New York who want the city to prosper, but in a different way. 140 Mile Stretch…

    Windows Of Heaven

    The specific phrase, “windows of Heaven”, is mentioned in three books of the Bible. In Genesis, 2 Kings, and Malachi. The sequence goes something like this. In Genesis God opened the windows. In 2 Kings, the skeptic doubted both their existence, and God’s provision. In Malachi, God promised that if we would bring all the Tithes and Offering into the storehouse, He would pour out overwhelming blessings from the windows. In the first two books, the skeptic’s doubt cost them their lives, even while Noah and Elisha were spared. In the third book, He lets us choose which group we will be in. I choose to believe the Creator of…
