  1. First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!


    • Hi,
      I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. Your question how do I prepare to write is a good question.
      The answer depends upon what I am writing. If I am writing a sermon or for this blog, it all starts with prayer, then research and then putting my finds down on page.
      prayer, preparation in the form of Bible study, and more prayer are the keys in writing as they are the keys to living a Christian life. Prayer and asking God to put the right words or thought into your mind is key. But I cannot say it enough, prayer, prayer and then more prayer.
      Often when I am done writing, I do not like what I have written, but strangely those have been some of the best sermons or blog posts.
      But it all starts with prayer.

  2. May I simply just say what a comfort to find somebody who really understands what they’re talking about over the internet. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people should check this out and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular given that you most certainly have the gift.


  3. Everything posted made a bunch of sense. However, what about this? what if you were to create a killer title? I am not suggesting your content isn’t good., but suppose you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post titles to grab people to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.


  4. Hey excellent blog! Does running a blog such as this require a massive amount work? I’ve no expertise in computer programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject nevertheless I simply wanted to ask. Appreciate it!


    • Hi and thank you for the compliment. Yes, it can be time consuming, especially at first when setting up the blog site. Writing also take time, but it really is the research or the amount of study that takes the most time. But it is all enjoyable. Again, thank you for visiting the blog and hope you will come back often.
