How to Go Deep on a Verse Topic – The Value of Life

Places, Estates, and Mansions

I made this video to demonstrate the power of digging into the scriptures. I’m not trying to draw out conclusions here for you, but just to show how one idea leads to another and that sets the stage to get powerful insights. You can draw your own questions and conclusions on what I point out […]

Everything works together for our good

I listened to a wonderful little book on Audible recently called “Tolkien’s Ordinary Virtues: Exploring the Spiritual Themes of the Lord of the Rings,” by Mark Eddy Smith.
