    How it Feels to Love Jesus

    Recently I have been trying to figure out how to explain and communicate my feelings and love for Jesus.  Unless you know Him, you don’t know what that feeling is like. Well today a FB friend of mine Joy Jenkins shared, almost by accident, a video with me. Normally I won’t watch a 30 min video in the morning before work.  But since I don’t hear from Joy very often, I figured it was something that I needed to listen to. This video brought tears to my eyes.  It perfectly expresses what it feels like to love Jesus! Just click below to play: Hope this moves you as much as…

    Celebrating the Epiphany!

    If you don’t know what the Epiphany is, it’s a Christian holiday also referred to as “3 Kings Day”.  This is the day people celebrate that Jesus was visited by the three kings who were Gentiles. Yeah I know, we typically think of the three kings visiting Jesus in the stable but the Bible doesn’t ever say that! The Feast of the Epiphany Explained in 2 min  This short video above explains what the Epiphany is. In the book of Luke, chapter 2, the Bible tells the story of the Roman Caesar issuing a tax. To pay this tax, you had to travel back to the place you were…

    Kanye West’s Passion for Jesus

    About a month ago I discovered the music of Kanye West and his album: “Jesus is King”.  This began when his latest album was released and I started hearing about it. You can read my first article about Kanye West’s conversion here Since then I have been overcome by his passion for Christ, which I too share. I love how he expresses it, how he is bold,  and how he is opening doors for so many people to know Jesus! Watch this Video & You Will Feel his Passion! (Here is a shorter version of this clip on Facebook if you prefer to watch it there or share it) And…

    This is a BIG Deal – Kanye West’s Conversion to Christianity!

    First it started with Dorren Virtue’s (the new age author) conversion to Christianity, and now it’s the rap artist Kanye West who has converted to Christianity and given his life to Christ. This is so exciting!  It’s exciting because Kanye can attract a huge audience and help them turn their lives towards Jesus.  It’s a big deal because he is doing this without worrying about his fame or fortune.  He is taking a big risk by doing so, as was Dorren Virtue’s risk when she told her publisher that she was not going to write any more new age books. And it’s exciting for me because I am a new…

    Secular vs. Religious Easter

    This year is the first year I have felt very torn between creating a secular Easter Greeting and a Religious Easter Greeting! I love the whole Easter Bunny thing, with the eggs and the spring motif,  the colors and the happiness they bring. I have always loved making an Easter basket for my daughter each year and coloring Easter Eggs with her. Yet I worry that I am not honoring God by not creating a religious graphic. So this year I made two: One I found as a retro stock image, and the other I bought the background, and found the Bible quote I was looking for: “Mary Magdalene went…

    God Gives Me Vision

    This is the story about an encounter I had with a woman named Monica Bijoux. So, I’m at a marketing event and I see this woman go up to the microphone to make a comment about the event. She really caught my eye and I began to look at her and I think “Wow, that woman is really beautiful. And she looks really interesting. I want to know more about her…” Later on, I saw her again and then I wound up sitting next to her during one of the exercises. I started talking to her, and as I’m talking to her, I’m looking at her and I’m thinking “she…

    Christianity vs. Other Religions

    One of the issues I have been struggling with is the notion of Christianity being better than other religions.  I would hear Christians say this and that outlandish claim would always come off as pompous and arrogant.  It really turned me off to Christians.  But once I discovered Jesus, I decided to delve into Christianity and try to understand what it was all about.  But I could never articulate my reasons for loving Jesus or why I was drawn to the Christian religion.  It mostly started because my family heritage is Christian, and I felt that was a good place to start. Now, for the first time, I have heard…

    I Got Baptized Today!

    Let me tell you the story of how I got baptized… First off, I didn’t expect to get baptized today, it was sort of a spontaneous decision. On January 23,  2013 I had made the commitment to follow Jesus after years of exploring religion and Christianity. And for the past few years I’ve have been wanting to get baptized,  but hadn’t found the right time, the right church, or the right opportunity. Although I live in San Diego, it was important for me to get baptized in the Atlantic Ocean because I grew up in New York and Boston, and spend my summers as a kid at the Jersey Shore. …

    Inspired by Doreen Virtue’s Conversion from New Age to Christianity

    This past weekend I was at the “Thought Leaders Business Summit” with my other mastermind partners, and at that event Reed Tracy, the publisher of Hay House Books, spoke to our group.  During his talk he mentioned how one of his top authors, Doreen Virtue,  had switched from New Age to Christianity.  I was astounded!  and embarrassed that I had never heard of this before, as I have been studying religion intensely since 2013.  Her conversion happened in January 2017 after an experience of seeing Jesus in person at a church service.  You can listen to her story on YouTube. see below Why it’s inspiring is because she was willing…
