Listening to Rob Bell

I haven’t been here in a while; I’ve been doing lots of reading, but little writing. Right now, I’m listening to a good podcast by Rob Bell (Wisdom, Part 2). Thanks, Kenny, for sending the link. https://robbell.podbean.com/2016/09/

How to Write a Helpful Review on Amazon

Writing reviews on Amazon can be fun. And, if written honestly, your reviews can help others make better decisions. I’ve written a few; I was even a top 1,000 reviewer for a year or so. Here are some tips for those who care. I’ll focus on book reviews—that’s primarily what I’ve written—but you can apply … Continue reading

Review: Iron in My Hands by Dave Draper

But the title amused me. Also, my ten-year-old … Continue reading

Review: Manlihood by Josh Hatcher

Manlihood: The 12 Pillars of Masculinity By Josh Hatcher  Josh Hatcher says that “our culture has somehow begun to assassinate masculinity,” and with that I agree. Many things contribute to this—a lack of positive male role models (or, in some cases, a complete absence), no “rites of passage” in our culture, Justin Bieber, whatever. But … Continue reading
