Are Christians Allowed To Enjoy Life Following A Major Sin?

I’ve got a fallen pastor friend that I’ve grown close to. I don’t think he reads my blog, but I hope he does. He has gone through some of the same issues I went through three and a half years ago when I fell from ministry when I committed adultery. He fell a while back from his place of ministry….

When The Heart Needs Healing

I’ve been off the grid for about a week and I have a pretty good reason. And it turned into a good illustration for a blog (I hope). Last Monday, I was finished up with covering a basketball game in a neighboring county for my sports medicine job. I went to my car and when I got in, I had… Read more »

Listen Closely On Father's Day, There Might Be A Hero

Thought I’d get a jump on all the Fathers Day blogging. There’s a wide range of it. It goes from the sentimental: “Dad, you mean/meant so much to me.

Adultery: A Lucrative Business?

Before I continue my story, I have to address an issue I’ve been contemplating for over a year. I’m in the process of writing a book on fallen pastors and have already written an essay on my experience. The essay won’t bring me any income. The book has the possibility of bringing me some, if any. I started my blog… Read more »

A Day In The Life

I write a lot about the trials I’ve been through and the mistakes I’ve made. I write about the effects those things have had on my life and hope it has helped others. I write under a pseudonym to protect those I’ve harmed, my kids and just because I don’t need the publicity in this area, frankly. It’s a sensitive… Read more »
