English has always come easy for me. I have ALWAYS been a talker. I’m a social person, so to be social, you have to talk, but little did I know that one day, God would call me to sacrifice that gift. No, He didn’t ask me to become a mute. 🤣 HE makes the dumb […]
You can choose to live in a world where you’re terrified of darkness or you can live in a world where your God terrifies the darkness. I chose years ago to accept Jesus into my life, but before that, the enemy tried to convince me I was a good person, almost like God should have […]
“I’m a high school dropout, and I’m dumb, so if you want me on your team, you’ve got a lot of work to do,” I prayed. This was my weak-minded prayer in 1994 when God began to deal with me about ministry. I was a preacher’s kid. I grew up in ministry, and I had […]

I mean, I haven’t had one million people show up for my events all put together…at least not YET. “When the media continued to criticize the number of unfinished attractions, Walt […]
My parents live on acres of heavenly marsh. That’s kind of an inside joke amongst me and my sisters because we have a love/hate relationship with this piece of property. We made so many wonderful memories here throughout our lifetimes and, of course, there’s nothing like coming home to Mom and Dad’s for Thanksgiving and […]
Last night, while watching National Geographic, which I only do if my dad already has it on the television when I arrive 😂, I watched an episode with six penguins who stumbled upon a beach filled with sea lion after sea lion. They were literally laying side by side, like Tex-Mex enchiladas on a plate. […]
