Gary on the Broken Top trail near Bend, Oregon just 12 weeks after having both hips replaced in May of 2015

My beautiful wife Lily has been telling me I need to write about my journey the last few years, especially the last year when my pain was so bad I could hardly walk, about my surgery to have both hips replaced, and how God has helped me through it all. This website will be about sharing that journey, and on encouraging others to read their Bible daily, and I will talk about what I read that day. So many of us, me included, just don’t read our Bibles the way we should. I don’t have the exact numbers, but I have read many times how little Christians read, and how little we know about the Bible.

Along with trying to encourage others to read their Bible every day, I am also trying to encourage others to actually experience God. Just knowing about him and knowing a lot about the Bible isn’t enough, we need to make Him part of our everyday life. What we think, say and do needs to show that we are indeed children of God.

James 1:22 (NLT)
22 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.

What this website isn’t about is me telling you what the Bible says or means. I am just an average Christian trying to live for Christ. I am not a pastor, Biblical scholar, or theologian, I am a sinner saved by grace. I may give my ideas of what I “think” the Bible said when I read it, but that is all it is, my interpretation of what I read.
