21 Ways Book on Great Food Table

21 Ways Book on Great Food Table






We had a great time at the Thompsonville First Baptist Church a couple of Fridays ago. I spoke on the topic of “Celebrating Seniorhood: Follow Your Dreams”. I also included the example of “How to Write a Book in 28 Days or Less Without Stressing Yourself to Death.”

We laughed our way through the meeting.

Yusuke Nakayama from Hoddaido, Japan was visitng, and I drafted him to be our photographer. I thought he got a really creative shot above. I will share more of the photos from that event later.

If you live within driving distance of southern Illinois and would like to have a similar event, let me know.

Speaking of Hokkaido, Japan, I will be speaking at the Free Will Baptist Church in Bihoro, Hokkaido, this coming Sunday.

Just arrived at the Convention Center in Kansas City for the National Association of Free Will Baptists. Check out more at I think it will be a great week. An added bonus is that two of my grandsons are competing in the National Youth Conference.


I did bring some books and brochures.

Dare to Care Interview

Today, I was interviewed by Kent Mattox and Cris Corzine on the weekly radio program of Caring Counseling Ministries in Marion, IL.
Caring Counseling Ministries

Caring Counseling Ministries performs a wonderful service by proving Christian Counseling for those in need in the Southern Illinois area.

During the interview, I gave a history of my background in ministry and Christian Education, and we talked about my current involvement with Morthland College. The bulk of the interview dealt with my book: The LOVING Way to a Successful Marriage: Six Keys to Marital Bliss. We had some fun in our discussion and we covered a smattering of the concepts presented in each of the six parts of the book.
My hosts were very gracious, and I think we all had a good time during our discussion.
If you have Windows Media Player (or something that will play a .WMA file) you will probably be able to listen to the program at the following link:

(The file is large and takes a while to buffer. After several seconds I clicked on the gray progress bar-backing up slightly and it began to play. Please try it and wait even a minute or two. Well, the next time I tried it, it started right away. The first few comments were between programs, so the interview is actually there after a minute or two. Maybe I can tweak some more later. You may have to turn your speakers up a little; however, using headphones worked well for me.)
Bless you, and, anyway, I had a good time during the interview. (Their program usually airs on Friday afternoon from 2:00 to 2:30 on WGGH AM 1150 in Marion, IL.)
