”What Makes A Good President?”
Here's a question that is not meant to be political in any way - "When was the last time that we in America had a really good President? Even half way good? How about 2? How about 3?   My story today is about one of the good ones - perhaps the best of all - Abe Lincoln.   Let us pray that "We The People" take seriously who will be our next President - not just an auto D or an auto R.   Enjoy and Pass it On

”George Washington’s Rules of Civility”

When George Washington was a teenager, he wanted to make a good impression on his elders. Good manners were important to him.

That’s what Washington’s rules of civility and decent behavior reflect. The rules are about focusing on other people, instead of just thinking of our own narrow self-interest. In addition, they’re about being willing to make small sacrifices for the sake of living in a community and getting along well with others.

Aug 18, 2022
”Honest Abe”

Some have come to believe that the nickname for Abraham Lincoln was just a made up name for him to use as a politician - but that is not true.

Abraham Lincoln did something in his community at only age 16 that was so amazing, so honest, that from that point forward, he was known in his community and then eventually, around the world as "Honest Abe".

”This Great Invention - America”

When we think about our Founding Fathers, and their fight for a Free America, we find ourselves concluding that the hardest part of making our Nation was the actual War that took place. But don’t be too quick to think that once our American Revolution was over that the hardest part was over – that’s just not true. Why? Because they were determined to make an all-new Nation owned by “We the People”, not run by a few at the top. This caused our Nation’s document authors, with the Great Help of Almighty God, to invent something all new - “This Great Invention – America”. On this 4 th of July Special Program I am taking us all on a new adventure – to give to us the true and exciting “back story” of how our Founders came to invent America.

Jul 08, 2022
”The Mystery Man at Independence Hall”

”The Price Paid For Freedom”

This Memorial Day special, “The Price Paid for Freedom”, has been produced to honor all our Veterans,

It is truly my deepest honor to help tell the true stories of these who are part of what has come to be known as

“Our Greatest Generation”.

Each telling their own story in their own words.

May 13, 2022
”Iron Sharpens Iron”

We live in a society today that's always working to convince us that hard and difficult things are bad and the way we should always seek is the easy way - that somehow, easy is best. But that's not really true.  Would you be shocked if I told you that the difficulties that come upon you in your life could be good for you.


May 07, 2022
”The 49ers”

Is it true that all the glitters is not gold?  We sure think that the riches are all good and glittery.  But is big money always the answer or does it sometimes bring it's own troubles.

Feb 18, 2022
Why Are There No More Executions?

In our world's history, there have been some nations that have been considered to be the greatest of the nations. America is one such country. But did all the greatest countries get their greatness in the same way? Our founding fathers were quick to note that the greatness of America was because of God's Mighty Help. So, question - "If America has become a great nation because of God's Help, will we remain great the more we turn away from Him as a nation?"

Jan 27, 2022
”He Died For Our Freedom, Did You Know That?”

Sometimes we forget that so many before us, even today, are dying for our freedom.  This is one such story.

Often, I find myself asking this question "what have I done, what have I given to assure freedom for our America?"

Bricks and Mortar

Walls are made of bricks because a brick is a powerful and strong material. But will a brick wall stand without something else to keep it together? 

No! No matter how strong the bricks are, the brick need something else - something called "mortar". It is the mortar that finishes the strengthening of a brick wall.

And it's the same thing in life. We can be strong as a brick, but to be strong enough to take on all the troubles  and challenges of life - we must have also the "mortar of life". 

What is the "Mortar of Life"? Take a listen.
