Youtube In His Presence LIVE daily Bible Study

I have some EXCITING NEWS!  Starting tomorrow, you can visit our In His Presence Youtube Channel at 6:30AM and watch a LIVE Morning Bible Study.  I’ll introduce the Scripture selection for the day (the same one I post here on the blog) and pray with you.  I’ll do the same M-F each week.  To be clear, the Scripture selections will still be posted daily on the blog as usual.  I’ll keep my videos brief so you can get right to your time In His Presence by reading the scripture selections, journaling, and praying.

The daily live videos will be saved, so you can watch later in the day, if you are spending  your time In His Presence later in the day.

Here’s the Youtube link.

Here on the blog, we are in a series of reading through the Gospels looking to learn more about Jesus’ personality.  We just finished Matthew on Friday and are about to begin Mark on Monday.  Even if you weren’t with us for Matthew and even if you miss a day here and there, don’t stop!  Each day’s Scripture reading can stand alone.  I try to divide the passages up that way.  So, just jump in whenever!  The Bible is alive and active, no matter which part you’re reading!

I’m looking forward to sitting with you on Monday.  Get your Bible, journal and, of course, your coffee and join me at 6:30AM every morning Monday through Friday.

Here’s a little theme music to get us motivated!  See you Monday!

Kickstarter update

Kickstarter Update

Perhaps it was ambitious, but so’s my Mission Statement:  To see ALL people fall in love with Jesus, break free, and live victoriously the rest of their lives.

The purpose of my Kickstarter is:

  • Online Bible Study at redesigned website
  • Journals redesigned
  • In-house printing

I will continue the In His Presence morning Scripture posts and afternoon Family Connection posts, but I’d love to do so on a paid blog platform that is well designed and organized. I’d like for it to have a way for people to purchase Journals and Bible study materials right from the site, so it needs eCommerce capability.

I’d like to hire my friend, Meghan, who is an amazing graphic designer and is tucking money away for future missions work.  She will redesign the website, Journal covers and interiors, and Bible Studies for Preteens as well as the Growing Character Bible Study Journal for Girls.

I’d love to be able to print the Journals myself.  Selling them digitally means that you have to print 340 pages and take to an office supply store to spiral bind.  I can sell these cost effectively if I can print and bind in-house.

Yes, it is ambitious, but I firmly believe that He is “able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.” (Ephesians 3:20)

Please pray, even if you aren’t able to give.  I know that God’s favor will have to rest on this project for it to be successful and I wouldn’t want it any other way. 

Please share this with anyone you know who will pray or give.  The deadline is two days away!

Here’s the link. (Special thanks to my friend, Sarah, for putting together the video.)

Thanks so much,




In His Presence Family Connection March 23


Every afternoon, I will post something for you to share with your family in the evening.  It may be a talking point, a short video, a Scripture to read, etc.

Today’s Post…

Read Psalm 19:14

  • Why is it important to watch what you say? Who should we be aiming to please?
  • Do you tear down or build up with your words?
  • What does it say about your heart when you speak negatively toward someone?  Are you putting that person before yourself?  Why is that wrong?

Watch this short video from the Skit Guys. (Christian sketch comedy group)

You may choose to also read James 3.

In His Presence Family Connection March 21


Every afternoon, I will post something for you to share with your family in the evening.  It may be a talking point, a short video, a Scripture to read, etc.

Today’s Post…

Samaritan Purse’s March update came in the mail today and it was so good.  There were several lines I highlighted:

  • We run to the fire – we don’t run away from it.
  • “They [ISIS] told us to never trust Christians – that you should die.  Now I know that these were lies.  You have helped me, and I love you.” [Words of a young man being treated in a field hospital in northern Iraq after being targeted and paralyzed by an ISIS drone]
  • “Your words are bringing peace to my heart.” [Words told to a nurse treating a 6 year old who had been brought to the field hospital after being wounded by explosives hidden in a park in Iraq.]

Christians are making a difference around the world.

Talking points:

  • Why is it so important to go and serve others?
  • How can this make an eternal difference?
  • Is there something the Lord has put on your heart to do/go?
  • Pray for Samaritan’s purse and the field hospitals they have set up around the world-including Africa and Northern Iraq.

Visit Samaritan’s Purse for more information to share with your family.

Also, be sure to get your tickets for Facing Darkness; showing in select theaters March 30.
