JUMP: Life Transformation

Over the past 9 months or so, I've been helping a friend at church to write and edit a book. As of this week, it's hot off the presses. Yay!

The title of the book is JUMP: Life Transformation (JUMP stands for Jesus Understands My Problems) and the concept is about replacing hurts, problems, and unhealthy coping mechanisms with a core centered on Christ. While it does address addictions and other hurtful behaviors, the book is much broader than that and speaks to anything which occupies the place of Jesus in a person's life.

The book summary is:
Do you have a problem that's holding you back from a life of freedom and joy? Do you turn to unhealthy habits, behaviors, or choices when you find yourself overwhelmed by life circumstances? Maybe you know someone who has a problem and wish you knew how to help.

JUMP is about replacing hurts, problems, and unhealthy coping mechanisms with God-enabled life transformation. Are you ready?

Jump In!

It's been a fun process to take a concept and develop it into a finished product. I definitely have a much greater appreciation for what goes into writing a good book. Even though I was very involved in creating the book, objectively, I think the book has some great material which will help lots of people.

We may eventually get it up on Amazon or other online sites but for the time being, it is available online at as well as the Pleasant Valley Baptist Church bookstore in Liberty, Missouri. If you get a chance to read it, I highly recommend it. :)

Do you want to be dangerously effective as a disciple of Christ?

Danger implies an element of risk or lack of safety. As it applies to your walk with God, seek to be a warrior for Him that is dangerous and that the enemy fears. Not that you might have a sense of power but that God would be glorified and His kingdom strengthened.

Warfare is not easy and is wrought with danger. Acknowledge warfare in the spiritual realm but don't shrink to a life of easy comfort. Instead, seek an active and joyful existence spent serving and worshiping God, walking closely with Him, and knowing that he will provide power in battle.

We will not be perfect and will mess up from time to time but this should not prevent us from being used for God's purposes. He is fully capable of using imperfect people to accomplish His will.

As His disciple, seek to learn and grow in your relationship with Him. Share with others and invest in their lives so that they too can know Him.

This kind of life will be dangerously effective.

In pursuit of His best,

Eres Santo

Este es un cancion de alabanza escribio en Espanol.

Eres Santo
Tus nombre es magnifico
Alabanzas estan tus solo
Tienes el poder sobre todo
me das todo lo que necesito

Senor Jesus Christo
Te quiero en mi vida
Senor Jesus Christo
con tigo tengo alegria
Si Senor

Eres santo, eres santo
Eres santo, eres santo

Traducir para los gringos lo dice:

Your name is great
Praises are yours alone
You have power over everything
You give me all that I need

Lord Jesus Christ
I want you in my life
Lord Jesus Christ
With you I have joy
Yes Lord!

You are holy, You are holy
You are holy, You are holy
