Letter to Ministry Partners / 2020
Dear Ministry Partners,
We cannot thank you enough for supporting us personally, and the ministry work we have been doing through HCDS. Your encouragement, financial support, prayers, notes, phone calls and meals have been God’s lavish grace to us in a difficult season. You have both ministered to us and invested in us, and we are truly both humbled and thankful for each one of you. Continue reading “Letter to Ministry Partners / 2020”
New Office Space!
Last November, Tim and our good friend – Kevin Turner – began a project to build office space for our Soul Care counseling ministry. Kevin was an incredible leader in this project and gave much time and attention to creating an ideal space. Our son, Camp, also helped with several stages of the work. On February 15, 2020, we completed the project -all for under $2000! Thanks so much to all of you who were praying for this need and for your kind gifts to help us get it accomplished. Praise King Jesus for his steadfast love endures forever! Below are several pics that show the progression of the entire project. Continue reading “New Office Space!”
Christmas is not Coming, it has Come! / Sinclair Ferguson.
When I was a child, Christmas seemed to die every year by bedtime on December 25th. I know now why that was true for me, just as it is for every child. It was because the true meaning of Christmas eluded me. In the true sense, Christmas never did really ‘happen.’ I was looking in the wrong direction for the wrong things instead of in the right direction for Jesus. The truth is, Christmas is not coming. It has come. The Word already has been made flesh. He already has lived, bled, died, and risen again for us. All that remains is to receive Him. For Jesus Christ Himself is the meaning of Christmas.

A Great Discipleship Article
There is a great discipleship article over at Gospel Coalition: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/erik-raymond/take-your-medicine/
Here’s my favorite quote: ”Whatever God calls us to do (law) is anchored in the truth of what God in Christ has done for us (gospel). The trouble is we love us some law. Too often, we zoom past the indicatives while picking up a bucket full of daily imperatives. For some of us, our spiritual grammar is worse than our written grammar. To this, Ferguson writes us a script. “Thus the motivation, energy, and drive for holiness are all found in the reality and power of God’s grace in Christ. And so if I am to make any progress in sanctification, the place where I must always begin is the gospel of the mercy of God to me in Jesus Christ.””
Learning this is huge for me because I definitely “love me some law!” Fantastic article and good plug for Sinclair Ferguson’s book, “Devoted to God.”

Hope Counseling / Dec 2018
Friends and loved ones, Martha Jo and I are very excited about the upcoming year. As many of you know, we resigned our positions from Surfside Presbyterian Church this past August. As we consider what ministry Christ will call us to next, we are both convinced that a large part of our ministry will include Christian counseling and discipleship. This ministry will be called Hope Christian Counseling.Continue reading “Hope Counseling / Dec 2018”
