It was on the hills of Eastern Montana that the life-defining act of a man would be decided. His exploits during the Civil War had propelled him to prominence and recognition and he had gained a spectacular reputation as a leader. His daring and bravery were well documented. In fact, he achieved what many would call greatness in his time. Then came the … Continue reading The G. A. Custer Backstory
NOW is the Time!
I read a blog today on a site which will remain nameless, with a title that will remain nameless, about a subject that will not remain nameless. Someone wrote about several things a pastor could do to avoid sexual temptation. They were listed and expanded on; then I took a moment to read the comments of people … Continue reading NOW is the Time!

Man Vs ?
In an effort to describe why I write my blog and stick to a singular topic stubbornly, I will use the Travel Channels show, Man v. Food as an analogy, no really! I enjoy watching Adam Richman attempt to consume mass quantities of food, and the entertaining way the show is presented. Each episode features local restaurants … Continue reading Man Vs ?
