Books Can Go Places You Can’t

A friend of mine has traveled with a well-known and established preacher for many years. This minister has written at least 30 books, and I’m certain this is a conservative estimate. He’s also had his books translated into many languages, including Spanish. I took the opportunity to hear him speak once when he was down here in […]

9 Ways To Feed The Blogging Beast

I constantly tell aspiring authors and writers that before publishing a book, they ought to be writing daily or very often so as to practice their craft and excel at it. I also encourage writers to have their own blog, and not use one of the freebies like Wix, Blogger, or WordPress.com, but to self […]

If You’re Going to Write a Book, Put in the Rest of the Work!

As some of my podcast listeners have heard me say several times, I’d been working on it off and on […]

A Call To Mediocrity & The Blame Game

Go the way of least resistance in life. Don’t ask questions about why things are the way they are — just accept it. When people challenge your dreams and say something can’t be done — or ask who are you to think you can do something others tried but failed at — listen to them […]

Kicking You Out of the Upper Room — Practically Speaking

I recorded this episode about 2 months ago and never got around to editing it and publishing it online until now.
