May is the month to learn to "watch our words"

Words can breath life into your situation. I was rebuked by a Joyce Meyer program where she preached on the power of  words. Words can speak healing and words can speak to the enemy and prolong our trial. It was then that I learned that whining about my situation to… Read More

April has hidden sunshine

Thank you so much Jesus for sunshine.  This month I have began to see so much sunshine from Jesus because I have learned to thank Jesus for each day.  Each day is a blessing and Solomon learned that by living each day as its own seperate lifetime, the days last… Read More

January brings more rain

I am not talking about the drippy Seattle rain that is coming down as I right this diary. I am talking about the rain of trials. It’s amazing when you are released from one trial how another trial comes up immediately to haunt you.  January has been a tough month… Read More

Have yourself a very merry Christmas

I love this time of year and even though we don't have two sticks to rub together this Christmas,  somehow the closeness of it all makes it worth it. I have never been so close to my family and my kids than I am right now and for the first time in my life I actually have spent quality time with my family. That statement sounds so bad, but Dad's tend to work and bring home the bacon and then pass out. That was me. But during the last three months I have been helping both of my boys do their homework every single day.  After a meeting with the teachers, I decided to take on a "hands on" approach.  While I work as a part time CEO,  and then serve on Wednesday and Thursday I still made it a point to spend an hour from 5-6PM doing just homework. It was hard, but what a change it has made in their lives. Read More

September means revival

Per my Pastor’s instructions I have moved Seattle revival from Redmond, Washington to Bellevue, Washington into a room at church effective September 1st, 2013. Satan likes to weave ornate webs of confusion and he is successful in knitting his traps of deceit because he cunningly interweaves truth within his lies. … Read More

August means Alaska

Every two years my wife and three small bear cubs travel up to the arctic circle via the Alaska highway in our over sized truck to meet with family and friends and spend time in the wilderness near where I grew up for the first 20 years of my life. … Read More
