Do you like the popular book "Jesus Calling" in which Jesus speaks to you every day? My newest book, "Heart to Heart with Mary,"
contains Mary's words for each day of the year. She speaks as our
mother who loves and cares for us. Each entry ends with a suggestion for
continuing the conversation with Mary. My copies are due to arrive on
December 13, just in time to give as Christmas gifts. By then, the book
should appear on Amazon for $14.00. I will be selling them for $12.00
and free shipping. If you would like one or more copies, email me
(email@example.com) or just send a check (4237 Bluestone Rd, South
Euclid, OH 44121). In this week's blog, I give you a little taste of
this book, which was a joy to write—all 386 pages! Click to Continue

I realize now that I was a prayerful kid; God was close to me. continue
Scientists used new DNA screening tech to study caves in Belgium, Croatia, France, Russia, and Spain. What they found wasn't a big surprise. What's exciting about the news is that we now have another tool for unraveling our family history.
We've been pretty sure that nobody lived in North America until about two dozen millennia back. That may change, if scientists who say they found 130,000-year-old tools in San Diego County, California. Quite a few other scientists are dubious, understandably.
I took a longer look at what we've been learning about Homo naledi. They're folks who don't look like humanity's current model. We found their remains in a cave they probably used as a crypt.
Since you may be reading my stuff for the first time, I'll review why I think truth is important. All truth, not just the bits I grew up knowing about. Also why I take the Bible seriously, but not 'creation science.'...
