Thank you for visiting. Friends have encouraged me to create my own website for a long time. I believed my blog on NOLA.com (a high traffic news service) was adequate coverage for my endeavors until a friend told me how much she missed the class I taught.
The primary purpose of this site is to host several book length teaching series that I wrote between 1995 and 2001. If in-depth Bible study is not your passion click on Testimonies or Videos in the sidebar for lighter fare or visit NOLA’s Faith Blog. For the past year my purpose for this site has been sidetracked as I prepared a manuscript for publication. That manuscript is now a book available for purchase. Finding Faith in the City Care Forgot can be purchased Amzaon, Barnes and Nobles website, area bookstores will order a copy of you can purchase directly from the publisher CLICK TO PURCHASE. I started posting chapters from God Pleasing Faith in 2012. I hope to complete that project before the end of 2013.
For those who have never read my other blog, I invite you to visit NOLA.com where you will find a wide variety of material. The sermons from Pastor Jeff Oettle, Inspire Church are on hiatus while his ministry makes some major transitions. I am posting some of my Bible study lessons on Sundays with an occasional sermon series from Pastor David Crosby, First Baptist New Orleans. I write about the faith and beliefs of people who live in the New Orleans area on Mondays. Dr. Kathy Bakers’ video series was on hiatus. She was a victim of hurricane Issac which flooded LaPlace. In her absence Ryan Lowe’s Get Off Your Attitude Minute is running. Dr. Baker’s Tuesday video teaching series returns March 5, 2013. Ryan Lowe’s Get Off Your Attitude Minute will run monthly on Saturdays. Members of The New Authors Fellowship, a fiction writing group, make contributions on Wednesday. Retired pastor and cartoonist Dr. Joe McKeever shares his humor and wisdom on Thursdays. Pastor Frank Bailey of Victory Fellowship shares a devotion every Friday. I am also releasing a series called Passage to Purpose about my journey to becoming a published author and my adventures in marketing, also released on Monday.
We also have several guest bloggers. Catholic contributor Alfred Lemmon keep us updated about church events in the New Orleans area. Dr. David Crosby has timely comments about current events and Dr. Michael Sprague shares his Grace Adventures. We have a new guest blogger, business man Donald Moore. He is the CEO of Miracle Restaurant Group which owns Arby’s restaurants in the tri-state area. His articles are currently scheduled to release monthly on Saturdays.
“I stomped out of the church. Threw the clipboard on the backseat of my car and slammed the door. Enough was enough, I fumbled in my purse for Advil and swallowed two, before speeding out of the parking lot.
“How dare they fire me!” I grumbled…………..
Look for “Something for Me” by Teena L Myers in the gift book How I Met My True Love, (Xulon Press), a story about finding love God’s way.
My morning devotion was the story of Samuel and Saul’s first meeting. God told Samuel, “About this time tomorrow I will send you a man…” Captivated by the method God used to change the course of Saul’s life, I relaxed to meditate. God directed Saul’s path to Samuel through a very ordinary way: a servant suggested that they visit Samuel.
The following Sunday, as I walked through the church foyer, a woman stopped me. I was surprised she knew my name and that I taught Sunday school. She also knew where I lived, which made me apprehensive, but I continued to listen……………………..
