The town will be rebuilt on its old foundations; the mansions will be splendid again. 
Thanksgiving will pour out of the windows; laughter will spill through the doors.

    How To Survive Another Lockdown!

    December 29, 2020

    My son, Rylan did a report for his studies on the effect of the first lockdown on small business.  At that time 30% of small businesses were not able to adapt or survive.  A survey was recently done with local businesses and of the remaining ones that did survive, 70% felt that were in danger of closing going through this yet...

  • Lately it has been feeling like an elastic band, pulled to its' very fullest extent, almost to a breaking point. It’s been a season of growing faith. Just as Abraham was given the impossible promise of a child who will be one of many, God has given this dream for the Manor to be a restored as his child and one of many!!! This has led us...

    Jesus, All For Jesus by Jenny Johnson

    December 2, 2020

    Today I am extending an invitation to each an every one of you to The Table. But first lets start we how we got here.

     

    We serve a faithful God! Last year I was intentional about making time with the Lord to seek his direction for the next year. Now I can sit back and look at how he fulfilled those promises. If you remember my posts, God...

  • Black Friday, Cyber Monday and oh yeah. Giving Tuesday if you have any spare change…lol  needless to say I think we have it backwards here.  If we are really serious about this, I think Giving Tuesday needs to come first.

    I can’t lie, I certainly am one who likes a sweet deal, an amazing find at an unbelievable price, but...

  • Now that the Manor is closed due to Covid-19, many of you may be wondering what we are doing. So I wanted to give all our supports an update. We are not called to do church but to be the church. And how do we live out the church on a daily basis? Let’s go back to the first church. Acts 2:42 says “And they devoted themselves to the...

    Hidden Gems

    October 31, 2020

    Sharon and I have taken time to do some day trips in the local area to find some hidden gems.  We’ve gone to the usual places to find the fall colors like Hockley Valley and check out some local artisans and then we’ve also hit the more unusual spots like Shakespeare, Ontario.  Well, there wasn’t much there other than...

    What Is Hope?

    October 6, 2020

    It is an expensive attribute and one that can often take years to build, that is when we are talking about something rock solid and something that gives us absolute confidence, not wishy washy like “well, I hope so…”.  There is certainly the wishful thinking side of things, but then there is the biblical definition.

    It is...

    He Restores My Soul

    September 2, 2020
    We have been slowly walking through Psalm 23 together with Addi and Rylan as I recently revisited a book that I read a while ago, "Travelling Light" by Max Lucado.  The book really challenges you on the subject of joy.  He asks, 'what is the one thing separating you from joy?  How do you fill in this blank: I will be happy when...

    Better Together

    July 31, 2020

    It’s not too often that you get the opportunity to work together side by side with family, but at this season in my life, that is exactly what I get to do.  It’s nothing but positive vibes for Rylan, Jordan and me most days on the roof.  However, don’t ask them about me and the roof underlay.  It is not my friend...

    The Hugmaster 2020

    July 1, 2020

    I have been inspired recently by my new friends Jeff and Maria.  They have been an incredible joy in our lives as we have gotten to know them over the past month. They will be getting married at the end of July and both of them have an incredible journey towards finding faith in Jesus.  We took the opportunity to show love a few weeks...
