I enjoy helping people. I am an encourager and I can see the good in others. I want people to understand what it means to be an authentic Christian and not just a religious "nut." I believe if Christians lived and loved others as Jesus lived and loved others, we would experience more of heaven on earth than hell on earth. These thoughts and writings are intended to encourage you to be who God originally designed you to be. They are also intended to challenge you and make you think. Also, I want you to know that I'm praying for you every day. Blessings, Murphy Blessings to you, Murphy

Great Place for Retreat

As a follow-up to Murphy's most recent post regarding taking time for connection and retreat with God, I would wholeheartedly recommend a wonderful spot right here in South Louisiana. If you are looking for a place that offers warm hospitality, skillful therapeutic intervention, anointed spiritual direction, profound silence, and a powerful sense of safe repose, check out http://www.parishhermitage.org/.

My wife and I try to get out there a couple of times a year, if at all possible. Length of stay can range from overnight to two weeks, and can vary in focus from intense therapeutic intervention to spiritual guidance to a simple retreat of silence or solitude. Dr. Eddie Parish and his wife, Judy, have been richly gifted by God to offer this wonderful ministry. Go and be challenged, restored, and refreshed!
