Last week I had the pleasure of meeting this gentleman, Nick Vujicic. I was nervous about meeting him, because the natural thing when you meet a person is to shake their hand - he doesn't have arms. So I walked in the door, smiled, looked a little unsure of what to do, and he said "come give me a hug!". A dynamic personality, outstanding communicator and servant of God. He has an incredible story of God's grace, love and purpose for us all.

Check out his website to learn more about him and his ministry
The Lost Virtue of Hapiness.
I attended Rock Harbor this weekend, and heard JP Moreland Speak about his new book the Lost Virtue of Happiness. For being such an intelligent man, he communicates very clearly to the simple minded, like myself. He explained that the definition of hapiness has changed since Jesus Christ's teaching, early day philosophers, and even the declaration of independece's "pursuit of happiness". Our definition of hapiness now is distorted, and our lives reflect that. I believe that what he shared with us will have a lasting impact on my life. Strongly recommended.
