Breakthrough Movie Night

Even though I've not been as active in the film world as I used to be, I still try to keep up with the new movies coming out. I wanted to see Breakthrough when it released in April, but it didn't work out. So I was thrilled when I received an invitation to show the…

Are you as excited about the Overcomer release as I am? Yes, the Kendrick brothers' newest movie releases this weekend. I got to see an early release, and trust me when I say you're going to want to see this one. Overcomer is the story of a high school basketball coach whose dreams are crushed…

Finding Lady Enderly – Book Review

Finding Lady Enderly is unlike any other book I've read. It feels like classic literature, like you're discovering a treasure that's been tucked away for all these years and just now discovered and released.

Catching Faith 2: Movie Review

I can't remember the last movie I watched. I've been too busy with ministry, speaking, and books.

Book Review: When You Need to Move a Mountain

When You Need to Move a Mountain book review

As I prepared to lead our women's prayer retreat, I read dozens of prayer books including When You Don't Know What to Pray by Linda Evans Shepherd, so I was excited when I got the invitation to review her newest book. I like both books, but this one really resonates with me. When You Need…

But by night and under…

He Reads Truth – Bible Review

Guest post by Rev. Clay Herd. This Father’s Day I have the joy to review the He Reads Truth Bible. I will admit, because of the quick turnaround time of receiving the Bible and having to write the review, I did not get to drive with this thing very long. Keeping that in mind, let’s…

Emanuel – Documentary Movie Review

Charleston churches

It wasn't until we started making the film festival rounds that I ever watched documentaries. And even though I've seen some great ones, and was looking forward to watching this one, as the movie began, I found myself thinking of the theatrical release and wondering how many people would go see this documentary about the…

The Women Who Met Jesus – Book Review

The Women Who Met Jesus book review

As you  may have noticed, I have a slight obsession with women in the Bible. I love to not only read their original stories in the Bible, but also to read Bible studies and other books that feature different biblical women. The Women Who Met Jesus: New Testament Stories of Lives Transformed by the Author…
