  • The Reformed Church in America: Dating and Dysfunction

    It’s not easy being a 47-year-old (never married) single Reformed man, who is disabled and suffering from severe mental illnesses, in America and looking for a godly wife. I’m in a Reformed singles group on Facebook and after several years of careful observation, I must sadly recognize that the vast majority of the Reformed women […]

  • Overwhelmed: Breaking Point

    I have so much wrong with me! I NEED YOUR PRAYERS DESPERATELY! PRAYERS FOR ME AND MY FAMILY WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!!! Satan is a liar!

The Scriptures are self-consistent, self-interpreting, and self-authenticating. The Christian church […]

  • My struggle

    When I was a child I had boundless energy. I used to spend hours playing outside (8-12 no joke!). I was actually hyperactive. I once ran around our entire block, at our home on Meadowbrook Blvd. in Brentwood, about 20 times in a row without stopping! I am thankful to God for giving me a […]
