To a Generation of "Beef-Seeking" Vegans

You are...


a plant-based
clean eating
vegan

generation

writing
posting
commenting

to use

that power
those words

to start wars
(and end them)

igniting
passion

stirring up
indignation

starting
beef

with hopes that your words will

confront
challenge
change

the world


sharing thoughts and opinions to...

invite conversation
entice minds
incite riots

biting down on injustice
to make someone

feel something
say something
do something

to stop

the carnage
the slayage
the feasting

upon innocent flesh
everywhere

And although it's ironic
(here's something to chew on)

every generation before you

was also forced

to fight
to bite

so you should never apologize for the fact

that you
have had
to become

a generation

of

beef-seeking
vegans

While others may...

plot

play

they are absolutely
powerless

against your God-ordained
purpose

There is something that you should commit to in 2018...

Probably
Nah

GRATITUDE

What is a Testimony Journal?

A few days ago I released
the first lesson from my testimony journal, but

Have you ever been...

saved?
rescued?
healed?
fed?
delivered?

Are you currently...

in a situation?
facing a dilemma?
fighting depression?
experiencing hardship?

Why a Testimony Journal?












you worried
you prayed
God answered

and you forgot

UNTIL...

the next time

you worried
you prayed
God answered

and you remembered...

that He is always faithful

so you wondered...

why you must 
first worry

Here's how it all began

Hurting During the Holidays

While you are enjoying the Holiday Season

please remember that this time of year
often brings stress and pain to others

and while I am not a licensed mental health expert

I wholeheartedly believe in living
a life full of gratitude and grace


If you or someone you know is hurting...

1. Acknowledge the pain (Job 14:1)
don't minimize or ignore your source of pain
(pretending will not produce healing)

2. Talk to someone (Proverbs 17:17)
Speak up. Tell a trusted friend, loved one,
or mental health professional if you are hurting

Please do not "suffer in silence"

3. Talk to the Lord (1 Peter 5:7)
Allowing time to pray, read, and meditate
is crucial because this is also a Spiritual fight

4. Do something for someone else (Acts 20:35)
Volunteer time, energy, or resources to help someone else

5. Give yourself the gift of time (Psalm 30:5)
Emotions come and go like waves.  Even the highest waves eventually recede.
