Published Works

At heart I am a teacher and a story teller. To many, this has not been a secret, but I only came to realize this fully in the last few years. While I do enjoy speaking in front of groups big and small, I find much of my best work comes from the pen and keyboard.

Here is a list of my public works. Some of these are videos, which you may not consider writing, but believe me, writing is more than 50% of the effort involved (not counting the post-production).

Approaching Prayer: Overcoming the Obstacles

Why is it that often, when we pray, we don’t get an answer? The authors of the Bible boldly claim that we can ask anything and it will be ours, that everyone who asks, receives, and that with just a little faith we can move a mountain. Yet our prayers are ineffective and God remains silent when we call.

Approaching Prayer is a short book that covers the foundational elements of prayer. Each chapter focuses on a single, simple obstacle that we need to overcome in order to have effective communication with God.

Starting at the beginning, learn how to see God at work in the small things, then build your faith, and clear away the dirty laundry obstructing your relationship with the Creator. Later, understand the types of prayers God loves to answer, connect with the ultimate power source and see that He wishes to hear all of your heart’s desires.

Inside these pages you will not find rocket science or magic incantations. Some of the lessons are easy to apply and some will take effort. In the end, you will understand effective prayer.
