  • Practice for heaven during dinner with friends

    Generally when my friend Tara and I get together food is both talked about and consumed.

    I taught her my secret to amazing stir-fry vegetables (season them with onion powder and dried red chili flakes), and she introduced me to pad thai and satay at a Thai restaurant.

    Last Saturday, to celebrate her birthday, she and I and our husbands went to a seafood, prime rib and sushi buffet where we, as always, both talked about and consumed incredibly delicious food.

  • What happened to civility in conversation?

    The last time I was in an airport I picked up the book, ‘How to Talk to Anyone.’ It promised 92 little ‘tricks’ for big success in relationships.

    Because my job involves talking to people, or more importantly getting them to talk to me, I bought the book.

    The author, Leil Lowndes, also wrote ‘How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You.’ I think the author may have used some crossover material from her other book in this one because trick No. 3 is “How to use your eyes to make someone fall in love with you.”

  • Christ is the standard by which to live your life

    What ultimately provided the missing piece for the men referred to in our previous columns?

    That missing link for them hinged on two other very important words concerning the Lord Jesus Christ: prominent and pre-eminent.

    The meanings hidden in these two words seemed to throw the door of understanding wide open. Prominent communicates the idea of one among many. While pre-eminent means there is no one else or the one and only one.

  • God’s sweet love is the veneer of all

    Years ago I had a sort of business acquaintance whom I idolized.

    I was just getting started in book writing and at the time she was one of the top names in Christian publishing.

    This woman wrote some of the funniest books I’d ever read, plus she was highly in demand as a speaker. She probably still is.

    Back then she could make audiences laugh until they wet their pants and snap her fingers and bring them to their knees in surrender to the Lord.
