FAITH AND THE FLU

I bought chicken fingers for lunch Sunday – my only outing. I was very sick. The young man at the window told me that nearly 20% of university students had the flu. I know about the flu. I put my picture up on Facebook wearing a mask at my doctor’s office last week. I thought… Read More »

RON’S READERS NEWSLETTER

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” It can also be dangerous! Just ask John the Baptist or Martin Luther King. The quote is by George Orwell, author of Animal Farm. I saw the words on a poster in an English class of 7th graders. His 1945 book was… Read More »

SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS

I recently interviewed two experienced educators in NW Arkansas schools. Both work with disabled children; one full time. I was impressed with their dedication and their compassion. I’ve been alarmed at the growing number of children with Autism Spectrum, fetal alcohol brain damage, Downs’ Syndrome, and ADHD. More and more, our public schools are making… Read More »

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

I really am looking forward to posting articles about God, family, faith, reformation of the church, science, and miracles again. But the political silly season isn’t over. In the United States, our cultural mentality is not normal nor is it peaceful. If you believe the liberal news outlets from New York City, the elite citizens are disturbed.… Read More »

NEW RICHES ARRIVING

In the United States, a new president takes charge on the 20th. Donald Trump was the pit bull of presidential contenders, surprising everybody, especially liberals in the media. He showed us a reality TV fight-to-the-finish victory; a cage-match kick-boxer kind of win. Now he brings us along for the ride while he settles down to… Read More »

ALVIN YORK GOES TO WAR

In early January this year, I was inquiring of the Lord about the strange dream of angels landing on the battlefield. This was the prophetic word (along with others) that inspired my book, Engaging Heaven’s Army. I realized the dream was related to the word-picture I was shown in December; my motion picture vision of… Read More »

PEACE AT STANDING ROCK

Two millennia ago, a host of angels began praising God, surprising shepherds sleeping in the fields. They announced the birth of King Jesus, saying “Peace on earth toward men of goodwill.” I want to tell you about some men of goodwill whose actions helped make for peace in North Dakota. I already reported about the… Read More »

LEARN NEW LINGO

I have a friend who encouraged me to translate my writing and speaking into the lingo of the culture since he knows I like to write for the general public. I was raised going to church, with ways of talking “inside” our Christian culture. It shows, huh? I admit I feel challenged because America is different… Read More »

DAMAGED BY ADULT ADD?

FOR YEARS I WONDERED why walking through a busy shopping mall was unpleasant and disorienting. There was too much visual stimulation. Too much input felt overwhelming. It made me feel uneasy or queasy like I had mild motion sickness. I thought everyone was like this but I thought that I had poorer self-control. So I… Read More »

GIVE ME LIBERTY… TO NOT BE AFRAID

Patrick Henry said, “I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Campaigns are fought over ideas. The debate is healthy; the animosity is not. America’s founders came to this land for religious freedom. They were loyal to the Crown but they eventually revolted against taxation… Read More »
