My Daughter’s First Published Book! – “The Weekly Prayer Project” !

I’m so proud of my daughter Scarlet whose first book is being published and available July 4! And, it’s a book about God! How awesome!

Harper Collins then assigned Scarlet Hiltibidal […]

Abortion Survivor: Gianna Jessen is AMAZING (must see videos)

I watched a bit of Madonna and The Screaming k Hat Ladies (good band name) on TV, shook my head and went to church. A woman interrupted the sermon with a passionate shout from the front row. The pastor had her come up to the pulpit. Her legs didn’t work. She told us she had survived an abortion. She has cerebral palsy because of it. Truth poured from her lips, “Where were my rights?” and I googled her as soon […]

  • “It’s a Broken World, Baby!” (new music video!)

    Thanks to Becky Best for her wonderful cinematography and editing skills, and to Melissa Crain for the gorgeous set, and the adorable animals! (*There was no harm done to animals during the filming of this video, they were like that when we got there!) This song was inspired by my recent cancer journey. I started thinking about all the broken things in this world and how “the fall” in the Garden of Eden ruined the whole beautiful creation. The 2nd […]

  • Are You Afraid to Die? (great video sermon)

    (My friend Mandy’s dog Gobot barking at the cows) Here’s a great sermon on the topic, “Are you afraid to die?” Pastor Rusty George was my pastor when I lived in Acton, CA for awhile. He does a great job teaching God’s Word. Link here.

  • Great Sermon on “Suffering”! (video)

    Pastor Steve is a great Bible teacher. This recent sermon really encouraged me. I wanted to share it. I personally know about 10 people diagnosed with cancer just this year. What should my reaction be to suffering, mine and others? How Big is Your God? (Part 4) from Grace Chapel on Vimeo. (this is my fake-tattoo-lymphedema-prevention-compression-sleeve covering my real tattoo that says, “Ever Grace” as I ride my friend Melissa’s beautiful horse “Lil Bit” through God’s beautiful Tennessee hills!)

  • Jon Lovitz Explains Conservatism to Dennis Miller

    Just stumbled across this video from 1998. In his unique way, Lovitz seems to be explaining to Miller why Marxism (redistribution of wealth) is bad and why Capitalism (conservative values, personal responsibility, hard work, freedom) is good. Jon must have convinced him because Dennis is now famous for being a conservative spokesman. (By the way, I worked with them both for 6 years back in the day and love them dearly. They are kind, professional and way smarter and funnier […]

  • I Love This Book: “Of Moose and Men”

    Torry Martin and Doug Peterson wrote a new book, “Of Moose and Men: Lost and Found in Alaska.” I’ve always wanted to know what it is like to live in Alaska. They tell me. I also like to read about people struggling with their Christian lives because I do. Torry explores that. My curiosity was fed. My funny bone was tickled. And, my love for Christ was strengthened. I highly recommend this original work of art from this original red […]

  • Students Sing to Cancer-Stricken Teacher

    This beautiful story is about friends of ours in Tennessee. God is bigger than cancer and bigger than this world. Jesus brings hope for our future, even after death. “The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8 “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day […]
