The Word In Your Mouth & Heart

As parents we are often proud as our children accomplish things such as learning to walk, talk, write, do well in a sporting event and the list goes on.

In all the things our son Ethan has accomplished as he grows, nothing puts a smile on our face and joy in our heart more than watching him at this young age be a sponge for the Word. He is four years old in the video below. Ethan has known many bible verses since he was a little over three and continues to memorize scripture and the Truth of God's word everyday.

I thank the Lord for my wonderful wife Kelly who has made a commitment to the spiritual health of Ethan by daily exposing the Word of God to him.

Adoption The Loving and Life Changing Option

My Son Ethan

Every year our family is blessed to participate in the National Life Chain, which is held on the first Sunday of October. This year marks the 21st year that the Life Chain has been held across the US and Canada. The Life Chain is a time to stand in humble reverence and prayer as we seek Gods grace on our nation and as we intercede in prayer on behalf of the children, (over 4000 a day) who are being killed by the hands of the abortionist. It is also a time to pray for healing for those who have had abortions. I encourage you to read more about the Milwaukee Area Life Chain and how you can be a part of this time of intercession.


Our Story

Our story starts on April 14, 2001, Kelly and I were married and looking forward to Gods Blessings of a family. A year into our marriage we still were not pregnant so we started to pray for God's wisdom and direction as to how our family would grow. Through prayer we were lead to believe that the Lord was going to grow our family through the wonderful blessings of adoption. We began to pray on a daily basis for our future child as well as for the birth mother of our child.

Three years later, going through the peaks and valleys of the adoption process , The Lord, through complete divine intervention brought our son Ethan into our lives.

Ethan's Story

Ethan was scheduled to be aborted, yes let me repeat that, my son Ethan was scheduled to be murdered at the hand of the abortionist. When it came to the scheduled execution, the birth father calls up the girlfriend (Ethan's birth mom) and said that he spent his money fixing his truck and that the murder would have to be rescheduled.

Here is where the grace of our Lord enters. Through an act of divine intervention the Lord somehow directed Ethan's birth mom to go to a pregnancy counseling center. During her time in discussion and counseling at this center she, Ethan's Birth mom, was made aware about the selfless and loving act of adoption. During this time she made the decision that she wanted to give Ethan LIFE and a family (Kelly and I) the most amazing gift. The odds were against her, those that loved her and initially wanted her to have an abortion were now turning on her because of her decision for adoption. That decision, the decision of life, to them was more apaulling than that of murder.

She was strong and she believed that this was her calling that she would give this little boy a chance to live, a chance to grow, a chance to love and a chance to be loved. This little boy, whom some in this world wanted to KILL, is our son Ethan. He is amazing, loving, energetic, passionate, caring, determined and strong.

It was through ONE person, intervening in the life of Ethan's birth mother, that changed his life as well as ours and the lives of our family. It is our prayer that this little glimpse of testimony can encourage you to stand for Truth, stand for Life and encourage others who are facing the pressures of this "warped" world. Encourage them that Life is Precious and that no matter WHAT ANYONE says, the developing child in her womb IS A BABY.

If you know a women who is facing this choice and is scared and confused please direct her to ECFA (Evangelical Child and Family Agency) and they can help point her to a local counseling center.

Soon I will release a website, that will prove beyond meaning that It's A Baby.

Christian Home Based Business Success Principles & Mentoring - Part 4

In this section of our Christian Home Based Business Success Principles and Mentoring we are going to talk about your "calling". Why is it that others create wealth in their lives and some barely scrape by? I intend to approach this subject based upon your calling. The problem I see is often the Christian Home Business that has been blessed with financial abundance, must remain grounded in the Word and use those resources in a discerning manner according to their calling.
Money in and of itself is not the calling, having money is not the calling, success is not the calling nor is the ability to create wealth. The calling is what you do with the resources the Lord has blessed you with. The reality is some are called to financial abundance to give and support faithful ministries and others are called to receive from those faithful supporters. Those that have given their lives to The Lord and are discerning in their ways understand this Truth.
If your Christian Home Based Business has been blessed with financial success and abundance, don't just count this as Gods blessing to lavish yourself with the luxuries of the world. Financial blessing not directed to the call of God for live is a snare that we as Believers must all watch for. Paul warned about this exact thing, to the rich he warned us to not be haughty and to not put our faith in riches but in God.
1 Timothy 6:17-19 "Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life."
Our Christian Home Based Business can provide us with much blessing and according to the word we who have been "called" to financial abundance are to use this abundance not to lift ourselves but to honor and Glorify the Lord in our business, in our works and in our giving. We are to hold tight to our blessings and use them in accordance to the biblical principles that will continue to bless others for generations to come.
