Less Is More

Last week I wrote about the wonderful, last minute surprise of being able to go to Kenya! Now that I am back home and have had time to reflect on the experience, I recognize every time I go to Kenya I see joy in the midst of extreme poverty, compassion and love out of very…

Surprise!

Life with God is a grand adventure and full of surprises! I’m writing this sitting on the deck of a tent at Divine Providence Training Center (DPTC – a pastor’s training center and ministry partner with True Identity Ministries) outside Nairobi, Kenya.

M.O.M. – Mother of Masterpieces

With Mother’s Day this weekend, I have been pondering a lot about mothers. We all have one, but not all of us are one. Without mothers, the human race would be extinct, along with every other species that lives and breathes on this planet. Mothers are a significant and crucial part of God’s design to…

Speed Bumps

Life is cruising along at a good speed and all of sudden you hit a speed bump! You immediately slow down and proceed with caution looking for the next one. If you miss the speed bump caution sign or ignore it and hit a speed bump at top speed, it can do some serious damage…

How Do You Receive Him?

This week’s guest blogger is Remco Brommet, Director of True Men, a division of True Identity Ministries. It is a few days before the Passover and crowds from all over Asia Minor have begun to make their way up to Jerusalem for the great celebration. Jesus and his disciples are also on their way, from…
