Christian Pick Up Lines (Part 2)

One of the most popular articles here on my blog is the one I wrote on Christian Pick Up Lines (click here to read that post). It gets nearly 200 unique readers every day from Google searches alone. Since this is the case, I've decided to provide a follow-up article that provides even more cheesy Christian Pick Up Lines. (Because...and let's face it, ladies...you can never hear too many pickup lines, ... Continue

Christian Pick Up Lines Guaranteed To Keep You “Single” For The Rest Of Your Life

I am so proud to be able to say that I have never used a lame pick up line with a girl. (Please, don't ask my wife. Shh!) Christian pick up lines are funny, awkward, cheesy, and if I ever hear my sons use them when they get older I'll disown them in the blink of an eye! (Either that or use it on my wife and see if it works. LOL.) Men...ladies...are you guilty of ever using lame Christian pick up lines ... Continue

Help Me Write A Better Book Summary And Author Bio

Hey, would you mind doing me a favor? Pretty please? My very first book is just beginning the editing process and the cover design is about to get under way. Yeah! My book is called God's Will Revealed, and it is scheduled to be released in March 2013. It is going to be published by Ellechor Publishing. I'm so excited! My publisher just emailed me with a few thoughts about the book summary and my author ... Continue

3 Mind-Blowing Tips On How To Get Traffic To Your Christian Blog

Do you write a blog? Maybe you're a Christian mommy-blogger, or you have a blog about theology, or parenting, or leadership, or homeschooling? Wondering how to get traffic flowing at that blog? There are millions of blogs floating around the blogosphere right now. The challenge is getting internet surfers to stop by for just a few minutes and actually read what you wrote. That's a tough thing to do! Wrong! ... Continue

God’s Will For Your Life: Guest Posting At Jesus & My Orange Juice

I had the opportunity to do something this morning that I haven't really done much of (okay, none!) in the past. It is, however, something I plan to do more and more of in the future. It's called guest posting. In other words, I wrote an article specifically for another blog, which is primarily authored by Shannon Milholland. The blog is called Jesus & My Orange Juice and you can read the article by ... Continue

6 Ways To Build A More Successful And Effective Christian Platform

Here's a little secret... Personally, I possess the world's greatest message and the world's most life-changing product. It is a message that everyone needs to hear and a product that is absolutely free, yet is more precious than refined gold or even a bucket full of rubies. The message I'm speaking of is the gospel of Jesus Christ.  The product, Heaven itself. The problem I have as both a Christian and ... Continue

7 Blogs Christian Writers Ought To Visit Regularly

I love reading blogs.  Wait, let me rephrase that.  Actually, I love reading quality blogs tailored for Christian writers.  Yes, that's much better. I probably frequent about 20-30 blogs on any given day.  I certainly don't (can't!) read everything these bloggers write and many times I find myself doing little more than scanning their latest post in order to glean a few treasures here and there. But ... Continue

8 Reasons Why You Should Start Blogging Today

There are no doubt hundreds of good reasons why Christians start blogging, but I think they can all be lumped together and then be boiled down to only eight.  (At least that is what I plan to do here, so hopefully it works!) Because blogging platforms like Wordpress (which is the one I use for this blog) provide anyone with a computer and internet access the ability to set up a blog and begin writing ... Continue

Approved As A Contributing Writer For Pastors.com (Rick Warren)

Are you familiar with Rick Warren and his ministry?  Pastor Rick leads a very large church called Saddleback Church, located primarily in southern California, but also with other campuses and church plants scattered around the world. Rick has been used by God in amazing and diverse ways, and I personally have benefited from his pastoral ministry and his books.  His ministry has been both edifying and ... Continue

The Query Letter That Knocks The Socks Off An Agent’s Feet

If you've written a book, are writing a book, or even remotely interested in writing a book, then one of the things you'll soon need to consider is how to tackle a Query Submission. What is a query, you ask?  A query is basically something you put together which describes your manuscript, your platform, your credentials, your writing history, etc.  It is an advertisement of sorts about why your book is ...

A Personal Testimony Of Salvation (Charles Specht)

Planting The Seed I was just an ordinary fifteen-year-old blasphemer the first time someone cared enough to share the gospel with me.  I don’t recall most of the finer details of that witnessing encounter, but I do remember one thing as clear as day.  I remember being brutally handcuffed with envy as the two Christians turned to walk away. By the time I turned fifteen I was neck deep in the mire of my ... Continue

The Christian Book You Haven’t Written. At Least Not Yet!

I bet you're writing a book right now.  You're probably about half-way finished and you've been writing it for about two or three years now.  But you probably also haven't touched it in the last few months.  Am I right? Or maybe you haven't started writing "your book" yet...but you've been considering it.  You've got a topic you're passionate about, that you want to tell other people, and you're wondering ...

A Mixed Bag Of Blessings And Curses

Yesterday wasn't an overly strange day, but two things of interest made me feel like sharing them with the world.  The first is identification theft.  The second is a child's early interest in writing. Let me begin with the first issue--the curse. The Curse Hardly ten minutes had ticked by after I walked through our home's front door last night.  My wife checked the messages on our answering machine and ... Continue

Book Review: A HEART FOR FREEDOM

Few books have affected me like A Heart For Freedom, authored by Chai Ling and published by Tyndale House Publishers.  I have been changed; forever looking differently at China -- and the world -- because I've done nothing more than read this book. (And I've already adopted two young children from China, by the way.) If you are at all familiar with the Chinese massacre of dozens of college students that ... Continue

Things Atheists Say To Christians About Their Religion

If you've ever had a religious conversation with an atheist then you'll probably relate pretty well to this article. But even if you haven't had such a conversation, I think you will still agree that the unsaved world around us is wondering about our faith, wondering about our God, and wondering why we live the way we do if we claim to represent God. Do you know what I mean? I don't know who first ... Continue

Book Review: OUR LAST GREAT HOPE

There are some books you pick up for the first time and just hate to have to put it down.  But there are also others you put down and hope you never have to pick up again.  Our Last Great Hope is a book that fits into both these categories and, as far as I’m concerned, that’s a very good thing. Authored by Ronnie Floyd and published by Thomas Nelson, Our Last Great Hope is a book I thoroughly enjoyed and ... Continue
