Feeling God’s Pleasure

The movie "Chariots of Fire" came out two years before I was born. It is the phenomenal tale of Eric Liddell, known as the Flying Scotsman. A strong believer competing in the 1924 Paris Olympics, Chariots of Fire tells how Eric decided not to run in a heat for the 100-meter race because it was held on Sunday. Rather than [...]

Composition for World Changers

Photography became a passion of mine years ago, and I love running a side business of event, wedding, and family portraiture. Photography is a powerful tool to visually communicate powerful concepts.

Resurrection Monday

"Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a doornail." —Charles Dickens, [...]
