The English language has a problem. We only have one word for “love”. You could say “I love my son. I love pizza. I love my Country. I love my wife. I love God.

I am looking for a few good nerds to help me with the massive research task for Courtship in Crisis.

After reading it myself, I grew into as big an opponent of dating as you could find. Dating was evil and Courtship, whatever it was, was godly, good and Biblical.
Somehow I found myself in a Mastermind Group with a bunch of authors. If you are wondering how Thomas (not an author) started hanging in an author mastermind group, I can tell you I have no idea. If memory serves me correctly, one of them saw me at a writer’s conference trying to sell author […]
