Most of the stories, anecdotes and poems in Reflections have their roots in the Bible, and many strive to give modern examples or applications of Biblical truths with which we are all familiar. It is, after all, the Bible which contains the most powerful and thought-provoking observations about human nature and life, and is therefore a constant source of fresh inspiration!–And it is God’s Word from which all great Godly men and women have drawn their strength and inspiration in the first place.

The wealth of anecdotes and stories in Reflections should prove to be an invaluable aid and devotional to everyone–teachers, parents, speakers, performers, writers–anyone who witnesses. These stories and anecdotes should be a blessing to everyone–to help you grasp the important truths of the Christian life, giving you a deeper insight into how to apply God’s Word to your individual situations and circumstances.

God bless you! We love you! We pray that the truths of these anecdotes, quotes, proverbs and poems will find a place in your hearts and lives, & that you in turn will be able to use them in your witness to others to enrich their lives with these true-life samples of living for the Lord!
