experience an extraordinary God in ordinary life

Daily devotionals, short stories and Bible studies are designed to encourage you and strengthen you in your walk with Jesus. Come on in, sit a spell and be encouraged.

To learn more about us and what we believe, check out the “About”page. We believe that the Bible is not simply some dusty, old, irrelevant book. It is the living, active, wholly inspired Word of God.

I write devotionals on a daily basis. Most of us are ordinary people, living ordinary lives.



 That is an excellent place to meet God. The Lord loves ordinary people … He must because He made so many of us. My devotionals are drawn from ordinary life and I hope illustrate the truths of Scripture. Scripture trumps my writing in every way, yet many people find it helpful in their faith walk.

I hope you enjoy what you find here. Please feel free to subscribe. https://mailchi.mp/f27bbeb09c22/gleanings-1

Hallelu Yah (praise God)

Soli Deo Gloria (for the glory of God alone.)

The salmon run has finished, and the eagles are once again disbursing. A couple of weeks ago, we had what the local media called the largest gathering of bald eagles...
