Jacob and I turned into the driveway of the house. It had been for sale for quite a while, and the price had been reduced a few times. Climbing out of the truck it was easy to see why. The house seemed to huddle sadly behind overgrown bushes that had

My Purpose

Every year, I always look forward to the Blast & Cast duck hunting event in Rockport. Duck hunting is one of my favorite things to do especially at this event. Just imagine the bright orange ball of sun making its way over the bay. And there’s a dark spot

I recently read something from Jared C. Wilson’s book Unparalleled in which he describes a true Christians’ uniqueness. He calls it "beautiful dust." “Christianity proclaims the glory of Jesus Christ and his work, and the good works of his followers become beautiful dust stirred up in our following him wherever

by Troy Lindgram I squirmed back and forth a little bit trying to find that just right comfortable position on the bench and around the rifle. As I peered through the scope at the paper target down range, I toggled off the safety with my thumb. With my index finger

Responding to God’s Call

Ever wonder how the L.A. Dodgers (formerly Brooklyn Dodgers) got their name? In the late 1800’s, the club in Brooklyn was called the “Grooms or Bridegrooms.” Fans coming to their games had to avoid fast-moving trolleys to get to the ballpark, especially as they changed from horse-power to electrical power.

Faith That Attracts

I recently was talking with a saltwater fishing guide on what soft plastic shrimp tail lures he was using to catch his fish. He was using a lure manufactured by the Egret Baits Company. Several other guides were telling me the same thing. Why was this particular soft plastic becoming

What’s in Your Tackle Box?

2017-04-04T03:33:58+00:00

“One of each,” was my response to the person asking what I wanted to get at next week’s Fishing Show in Houston. I’m one of those guys who likes to have EVERYTHING in his tackle box. This, of course, can get expensive, lead to very large tackle boxes, and really
