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.

    Once and For All

    January 31, 2020

    I saw a great meme in my facebook feed this week.  It said “Religion: I messed up.  My Dad is going to kill me.  The Gospel: I messed up.  I need to call my Dad.

    I think it does a really good job of the sense of fear and trembling that most people of the OT had when the High Priest entered the Holy of Holies.  I...

    The Power of A Genuine Connection

    December 31, 2019

    so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.  1 Thessalonians 2:8

    One of the most personal and touching moments for me while I was in Uganda was hearing from Jeslor, the young man who leads Trust Future Uganda, that Sharon and I were. “part of...

    Being Bold In Our Prayers!

    December 1, 2019

    One of the things that has really struck me about the Lord's Prayer or as some say the pray Jesus taught His disciples to pray is this profound phrase, "your will be done on earth as it in heaven."  Well, what is the will of God in heaven?  It is the absence of sin, disease and torment.

    John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill...

  • I don't wear tiaras or ball gowns, and when someone calls me princess I cringe a little ... But last night I put om my mentor's wedding dress from the 90's (shoulder pads and all :) I wore a tiara and was announced as Princess Twila and I was sure I could not have been further outside of my comfort zone ...but I wasn't alone.  I sat at...

    The Father's Healing Love

    September 29, 2019

    It is hard to believe that it has been over 30 years since I lost my dad to colon cancer.  It does make my heart sad that he never did have the chance to meet my children and for them to get to know him as well.  However, having said that, I know that I had more of a dad in the 21 years that I knew him than some people have in a...

  • On Sunday August 4th we celebrated the wedding of our first born son Jordan to his beautiful bride Katelyn at Whispering Springs in Grafton, ON

    For me personally, it was such an honor to pray over them the high priestly blessing at their ceremony.  


    The Lord bless you, and keep you [protect you, sustain you, and guard you


  • Here are some snapshots of what we are learning and what Jesus is doing in and out of the club!

    Dancing in the Streets!

    Once again I have been reminded of the power and presence of worship music to change the atmosphere.  We sometimes hear in church that people just want to get the music over to get to the message but that is an...

    A Month of FIRSTS!

    June 28, 2019

    It has truly been an amazing month of firsts for our Manor Ministries.  We welcomed our friends and ministry mentors, Justin and Tanya Brewer, from Flagstaff, Arizona.  During their visit, we watched in amazement as the Holy Spirit brought breakthrough. It started with just one lady who works at the Manor joining us for a worship...

  • Often when we hear those words it is usually used disparagingly in that we are unable to do it, we can’t get it done and we have failed.  Well, when it comes to making yourself approved before God that is exactly right.  I have a fun moment at our latest BYOB (bring your own Bible…lol) and I was teaching on Romans 3. I...
