Do you Need God’s Encouragement?
Do you need a hug from God?
Maybe His comfort and assurance?
An arm around your shoulder from the one who deeply loves you?
From the only one who can make things right in your life?
There are times when it is obvious that things are NOT within our control, and this can bring a sense of overwhelming distress, and fear, loneliness, or frustration, cynicism, and hopelessness. . .
Welcome Faithful Sheep!

God inspired me to create this website as a discussion forum for believers who want to encourage the lost. Many Christians would like to share their faith more often, but feel unprepared to start those conversations with friends, family, co-workers, and especially strangers. But there are so many lost and hurting people around us.
Chances are, nearly every week we encounter someone who is ready to hear the hope of God’s love and salvation, but we feel intimidated into staying silent. We worry about social pressures, and about what to say: How do I start? Can I answer their questions? How do I explain the Gospel? What if I make them upset?
I will tell you two truths: 1) Their response is God’s responsibility. 2) Prepare your heart, and God will do the rest.
As Christians, we really have no other purpose for being here. If our calling isn’t to help others, then God would just take us home as soon as we believed in Jesus. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matt 5:16
Each article I post will talk about some of the discussions I’ve had with people in my street-witnessing ministry, but more importantly, in my everyday encounters. And just like you, I get busy, I don’t want to bother, I get intimidated in certain situations, and get shut down by family and friends—I hold back too.
But this website is about being real, sharing some simple insights, and being willing (at least some of the time) to be used by God—especially when you sense His little nudge.
As we take this journey, I encourage you to join the conversation and share some of your own encounters and wisdom learned.
From time to time, I will also post some of my short stories for you to enjoy and share for free, so be sure to look for those as well.
I pray God’s blessings to you for coming on this faith-journey with me. I am confident that the Lord will help us all grow and learn together.
All blessings in Him!

“The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how.” Mark 4:26-27  About 25 years ago, we noticed something growing next to the house in front. I realized it was a little tree and almost cut it down, but we were sort of curious. We thought, “Let’s see what kind it is.” … Read More
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” I Thes 5:11 (NIV)  We always hear the cliché “A diamond in the rough.” The bad thing about clichés is that they can lose their full meaning by the time they become clichés, because if we connect with the original idea, it can help us look at people in a new way. I was in a Starbucks a few years ago meeting with … Read More
“Then the Spirit said to Philip, ‘Go near and overtake this chariot.’ So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, ‘Do you understand what you are reading?’ And he said, ‘How can I, unless someone guides me?’ And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him.” Acts 8:29-31  Often we don’t need to seek out people to witness to. Most of us encounter opportunities when we are not even looking for … Read More
