Absolutely! In fact, we will know each other better in heaven. On the Mount of Transfiguration, Peter, James, and John knew that the two men standing with Jesus were Moses and Elijah. In the same way, we will know our loved ones who have accepted Christ and gone on to heaven before us.Read More
First of all, you have to understand the every Christian will experience spiritual dryness at some point. But typically, it’s our response when those seasons hit that will determine how long they last.
You have two choices…
Well, I have often found that quoting Scripture is a great way to defeat the enemy when I start to worry or have fear. In fact, it’s a great idea to write down a promise from God’s Word about fear (Philippians 4:6-7, Isaiah 41:13, 1 Peter 5:7) and carry it around in your pocket wherever […]Read More
As a senior, you have a unique platform when it comes to speaking truth into others’ lives because people want to hear your story. So when you spend time around friends and family, tell them the story of what God has done in your life. As they listen, they’ll come to a better understanding of […]Read More
Who’s your best friend? Perhaps it’s your spouse or a lifelong friend, or maybe it’s someone you met fairly recently. Why do you feel especially close to this person? Many would answer that question by saying it’s because you’ve developed a close personal relationship with them.

In fact, I’d say it’s the number one reason that most American Christians miss reaching their full potential as an instrument of the Kingdom. Stress.Read More
I get this question quite often from seniors who are on a fixed income and wondering if they’re supposed to give. Let me say first that true biblical giving is not done under compulsion or out of obligation, but is to be done cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7).

As I minister to seniors all over the country, one of the biggest causes of stress that I see in their lives is the subject of finances. But did you know that God doesn’t want money to be a source of stress in your life? And that He wants you to experience financial freedom? It’s true.
Yet, financial freedom won’t just happen. God expects you and me to be good stewards of the money He has blessed us with. As the apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 4:2, “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.”Read More
We need to remember that death is not the end, but rather the separation of body and soul. While our earthly, temporal bodies will be buried in the ground, our soul will go to be with the Lord…Read More
