In God We Trust is back, America!

In God we trust is back, America!

While defining how we, the people come by our liberties, revered  President Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.”  President Jefferson also asked his countrymen this specific question on the subject: “Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are of God?”  Continue reading

Lift Him Up Don’t Pull Him Down

Book review by Laura Martin

My book reviewed by Laura Martin.

Laura Martin, daughter of Christ, has diligently blogged over 850 posts proclaiming her understanding and love of God, Jesus, faith and Bible study. For this reason, I asked her to set aside some of her time back in May of 2015, to please review my book.

Laura’s positive response to my writing was much appreciated, so I decided to repost her review.  For those of you who have not yet ordered my book for yourself or a Bible study, her critique my help you with that decision for the new year.  

 My goal is to always transfer thoughts to paper as straightforwardly as Laura does. Thank you, Laura. Continue reading

You are loved by a Big God!

How wonderful to be know and loved by a big God!How wonderful to be known and loved by a big God!

Our big God sent His Son to offer us salvation from sin. We do not gain salvation by living a good life, though many folks believe that idea . No, we are saved only through faith in Jesus Christ and the blood that He shed for us on The Cross. Continue reading

5 reasons to stop using OMG

Over the past decades, society has willingly and enthusiastically decided exclaiming Oh My G**! is: pertinent, necessary and acceptable in everyday conversations. However, because of the definition of God, and the way I understand our LORD’s third commandment, I must disagree.  

Godnoun: the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being.

Keep God’s Name Holy!

Keep God's Name holy!

The following is an excerpt from chapter five of my book:

Lift Him Up don’t Pull Him Down – The eternal importance of never momentarily taking our Lord’s name in vain.


Our holy God’s son is God’s Word in the flesh. Jesus came to us to demonstrate God’s Word through His love for us. His was baptized around the age of thirty, and His ministry lasted approximately three years. In that short span of time, Jesus selected a devoted group of twelve disciples. They gave up all they had, in order to follow and learn from Him.  Continue reading

In God We Trust

In honor of the 60th Anniversary of In God We Trust, 1956-2016. Because we are one nation under God, here is a repost of the history of our beloved motto.


In God we trust

Belief in God is in our national history.

President Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time” and asked “Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are of God?” 

The need for our country to continually acknowledge these liberties from God, is established in our national motto.

“In God We Trust” – four words establishing our nation’s motto. History reveals it was: Continue reading

God, America Is Calling You By Name

God, America is calling You by name

Since the formation of America God has always gone before us, stood beside us and protected our back. Sadly,  just like nations of old in the Bible, America often gets prideful and offers God the cold shoulder. We stop turning to Him, thinking we know better than He does in regards to living.
