Why I Don't Use the Word "Christian"

#goeverywhere - On one day, in a single moment, let's share the gospel.

What does it look like when Christians all over the world stand together in a single moment, make the most of the opportunity and share the gospel?

This is the question we (the yesHEis team) asked ourselves around mid 2013. Our work and ministry operates and revolves around the opportunity the online space give Christians for sharing the gospel. The idea of doing something all at the same time really caught our attention. So over the following months and through lost of prayer, team…

Here is my Mothers Day Tribute


I am forever grateful for the love and care of my mother.

She was a stay at home mom.

She had been an elementary school teacher before I was born.

She taught me many lessons directly and indirectly.


God used her to give me a love of learning.

I came to greatly value libraries.

She encouraged my creative thinking.


God used the prayers of my mother and her friends at a critical time of my life.

Celebrity Sightings

I am from Maryland on the East Coast of the United States.

I moved reluctantly to California (true) in 2000.  When we could no longer deny God's calling, we moved here to serve here with The Jesus Film Project in what turned out to be an extraordinary run.

Within six months of moving here, I was a convert.  Who needs seasons?  I love the 380 days of sunshine a year, access to the beach and the mountains (ok, we're not mountain people) and the moderate climate. …

Every role has downsides. I have to manage a lot of detail.  I manage my own schedule, book my own flights, reconcile the books at the end of each month and write and edit most of the communications.…

Our hosts, Carol and Calvin Conkey, had created a warm setting for a quiet celebration over what God had done in the prior week.  Soft lighting, candles, drinks, popcorn and sugar cookies waited.  We were ready…
