Frequently Asked Questions
What projects are you currently working on?
At the present I am creating short 10 minute Christian Bible teaching videos and displaying them on YouTube and my Bible By Phone Website; biblebyphone.com. I keep them at approximately 10 minutes long for a couple of reasons. First, people are extremely pressed for time and second, many are having trouble keeping their focus and interest for longer periods of time that’s why successful church service messages are around 25-30 minutes or under. A good example would be Joel Osteen’s.
Why do you think it’s placed on your heart to create these videos?
Way too many churches are closing, pastors leaving the ministry and Christians walking out on their churches and many on God in general. People are not getting satisfied. If one goes to a restaurant and tries the food, if it’s good they return, if not they look for another until they find one that satisfies. People are hungry, spiritually as well as physically. The void in them is not being filled and answers that remain in their heart are going unanswered. If people want loud, boisterous music they can find that at a concert. If they want to find out if God loves them and how he operates, what purpose they have on this earth, and does God ever speak to his people today, they try church, but often times the answers are not being addressed. They get cute little 3 point sermons and then file out for lunch. Does God show up and speak to them, touch them, heal them or deliver them from the things that plague them? Mostly the answer is no. God is not allowed to move in many churches like he wants to, too much control from the top down.
Why are you turning your knowledge into videos?
My videos address the heart issues that people struggle with daily; I deliver answers to numerous real life problems as are mentioned in the Bible. My videos speak directly to the listener so he or she truly knows there is a God who loves them and desires to communicate his words, the Bible so understanding and wisdom is easier, quicker to receive. The Lord kept dealing with me that everything I had walked through and experienced was not only for my personal benefit and use, but he had brought me out to the other side of so much and I have knowledge that can be backed up with experience. I realized my breakthroughs, turnarounds, healings and success were to be shared as well as the hard places that often times got me there. I felt the words in these videos would be a lifeline to many to keep them from falling away and some from leaving their posts.
If God has helped me through tough times and difficult places, should I not try to help others get through where I’ve already been? I realize some will listen and others will not. We all have choices and a will.
I believe the listeners and viewers who are most attracted to my videos are those who are either looking for truth, looking for confirmation or not satisfied with what’s going on around them in this world of ours. They are searching for universal truths and they are sick and tired of being lied to by politicians, the media and even people in their circle of friends. We all must deal with the problems of pain and suffering, trials and tests on some level. My videos offer hope; courage and just plain tie together the Biblical answers to everyday circumstances that otherwise seem more difficult to comprehend.
What would you say if there were no barriers to prevent it?
I would continue to say what I hear in my head except more. I hear words but often do not share the totality of what I hear because there are so many who would be offended by so much truth. You see we think lies are what hurt us, but actually lies are less painful a lot of times than truth. For example, a man comes home late and his wife asks, “Why are you so late, where were you?” If he answers, “I stopped off and played a game of cards with the boys, so sorry I’m late.” Is that as painful as “I’m late because I was with another woman, so sorry?” But, if he WAS with another woman, the question is do you want truth even though it’s painful or do you want the lie which doesn’t hurt as much?
How about a woman asks her friend, “I just had my hairdresser give me a new hair style, do you like it?” The friend answers, “Well, yes, it looks good, how pretty you look.” But the problem is she lied. She really wanted to say, “That style is not for you, you need to find something else.” Every day someone is lying somewhere. I believe people want truth even though it may hurt. My desire is to present as much truth as possible and find words to present it in the least painful manner. By the way, my answer to the friend would have been, “Do YOU like it? Because if you like it that’s all that matters.”
I want listeners to know the God who created them on a personal level of tremendous love and worth, just the opposite from some of the garbage the world feeds individuals through many avenues, like the media and certain Politicians. My joy is when listeners watch my videos or read my books and they are not just entertained but they are able to take away nuggets that make a life change for them and their loved ones.
For those who desire personal coaching , why should they hire you?
I don’t believe I can help all individuals. That’s why there are so many coaches out there with different gifts and skills, there is someone for everyone, that I do believe. My gifts and abilities are lined up with my call, which are to edify, exhort and comfort. I also have a deep ability to discern, it’s not psychic which is discernment from the devil’s crowd, my discernment comes from God. God truly wants lives to be whole, happy and moving in the right direction he created them for. Many do not know what that is and are unhappy in certain areas of their lives. But with God’s help and a good coach, people receive total turnarounds in their lives and the money they spend getting there is well worth it, it cuts out a lot of trials, pain, wasted time and wrong turns. I believe everyone at some time needs a good coach to help point them in the right direction. I also believe that many of the answers are already inside of us; we just need someone knowledgeable to open the right door or window so we can see it more clearly. That’s where I come in; my desire is to help others get over road blocks so they can reach their destination in a timely manner with joy and strength.
