In-Studio Guest Phyliss Wright

Phyliss with her granddaughters Lily and Ruby

The next two Saturdays we will rebroadcast two programs we aired last year. My dear friend, Phyliss Wright, is our in-studio guest. Phyliss is a committed Christ-follower who understands the importance of disciple-making, particularly in the context of future generations.

Phyliss serves as Associate Children’s Minister at The Church at Brookhills. She is one of the most creative, energetic, and “crazy-in-the-right-way” people I know. It way my honor to minister alongside her for many years before we both moved on to different aspects of ministry.

Join us as we revisit the topic of “Women in Ministry” in the context of our discussions using the book, Paul the Counselor: Counseling and Disciple-making Modeled by the Apostle, edited by Dr. Mark Shaw and Dr. Bill Hines as our springboard. Ruth Froese and I co-wrote Chapter 11: “Paul and Women in Ministry.”

Live-stream, listen, or watch at 2:00 p.m. Central.

New Study Guide Release!!


I am thrilled to announce the release of the Study Guide on Prayer—Companion to Prayer: It’s Not About You by Harriet E. Michael.

Prayer: It’s Not About You
is an awesome book by my lifelong friend
Harriet E. Michael.

When I received my copy of Harriet’s book Prayer: It’s Not About You last May, I began marking it and thinking about how to teach the book to a study group. The Study Guide on Prayer is the compilation of the reading and “sanctification boosters” (aka homework assignments) this group worked through.

(Harriet and I co-authored Glimpses of the Savior: 30 Meditations for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year.)

All three books are available in paperback and Kindle from Amazon and most bookstores by request:
Study Guide on PrayerCompanion to Prayer: It’s Not About You
Prayer: It’s Not About You
Glimpses of the Savior: 30 Meditations on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year
