Accurate information on what the Bible is actually communicating on any particular topic is as important ... as important is! God did not ask for my input on any of the Bible’s contents, so, if I am going to represent it, then my sole responsibility is to communicate what it actually says. Not what I want it to say ... or wish it said. So, pick a title of interest, and see what is in store for you! You are in for some surprises. Listen,learn,live!

Since 1998, he has worked as a salesman, and has used "free time" to write the materials now at your disposal. They arise from years of academic and practical Christian experience. He says it this way:
"These Ebooks and Articles, particularly the major ones, have been brewing in me for a long time. I have wanted - and needed - to get them on paper. In my attempt to share with you the truth about God on the addressed subjects, you will find material unlike anything you have ever read."

I play an acoustic twelve string guitar in 3 different tunings: Standard, Open E and Open C.
I flatpack and fingerpick - and in many songs do both with my invented toehold guitar pick. I also have some songs that use a glass slide.
I have decided to do home recordings with as good of quality as I can muster while I still have the ability to play and sing.
I think I have 177 original Christian songs (82 uploaded on YouTube as of this writing 7/19) - but I also had about 40 pre-Christian originals. I would like to record 10-12 of those as I was desperately searching for answers in life .. with no idea it was Jesus I was looking for.
So the point of recording those will be that if anyone can relate to those searching songs - they will know that I found all I was looking for in the carpenter of Nazareth. Astounding. If He grants me continued life and health I will get all my songs recorded - and the Commentary/Sermonette that goes with each one. I even have 13 drawings I did that go with 13 of my songs and I do an “Explanation of the Drawing” when that particular song gets recorded.
Also, I have two daughters who have pitched in on some of these.
My Eldest, Staci, actually wrote the lyrics to 3 of my tunes and added harmonies in a few others.
Claire, my youngest, has added harmonies to several songs as well and I only wish they both hadn’t gotten away from me so fast so I could have been able to get them to do more. But, I'm happy to get what I could - and my hope is that in glory we will be granted unrestricted opportunities to create music that will cause great joy in the presence of the angels of God.
And Who do you think is in their presence in great joy? That’s my goal. None other.
