1.16.18: Prayer Prompt: When We Want To Give Up On Others

PRAYER PROMPT ••• In my 43 years, I’ve given up on piano lessons, diets, book projects, and probably more things than my Instagram character limit will allow me to list.  Eventually, all of us want to give up on something.  Or someone.  A commonality of all people is that at some point, they will say or do something that will make you want to give … Continue reading 1.16.18: Prayer Prompt: When We Want To Give Up On Others

1.7.18 Prayer Prompt: Is Your Screenplay Up For An Award?

11.19.17 Prayer Prompt: The Toolbox

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday’s prayer prompt ended with a reference to our “toolbox,” so today, let’s dive into it.  Most toolboxes contain a hammer.  Do you ever find yourself needing to hammer in the same lesson more than once?  You just keep trying to get that nail of truth to drive home, but it won’t sink.  Prayer is the answer.  Jesus prayed in John 17:17 … Continue reading 11.19.17 Prayer Prompt: The Toolbox
