Nothing outside of salvation will impact living a life without regrets more than having a Godly character.   Freedom Today was my birth child, given as a gift from the Lord. It was a nationally and internationally syndicated television show that aired for a number of years. I was the host and executive producer of…

A Beautiful Wonderful Life

Some days I feel like I have to create something, and doing the same thing twice is no fun, so I change things all the time. I can’t even use a recipe the same way twice. I can’t help it. I have to create, and when I do, it’s messy. I surround myself with my…

Remember

Another rat scurried by as thoughts of hopelessness filled his mind. Hungary and dirty, he leaned back on the cold wall and closed his eyes.

Born To Fight

It was like he was born to fight. He came into this world fighting, and he never stopped until the day he wrestled with God.  As a young man, he argued and fought with his brother until the situation got out of control, and he had to leave town in a hurry. Never looking back,…

Those Who Are Redeemed Are to Be the Servants of All

Can there be anything more honorable than a ministry that provides medical treatment to all and is so self-sacrificing and innovative that they would go so far as to set up a makeshift hospital of tents in Central Park?   Their purpose is to help desperate New Yorkers who are in trouble because of the…
