    Have you solved your Ultimate Problem?  See link above!

    Do you know how to witness to lost people?  I can train you; it's not hard at all.  "Love is not only doing others no harm; it is doing them all the good that it is in our power to do."  —J. R. Miller.  Which is why we MUST share the Gospel every time we can!  —Richard Graham

    On June 1st, I updated my journal, and worked on my writing.  I also called a good friend in CA, since I had not heard from him--B.C.  He and his wife M are having healthy issues, some of it with severe pain.  Please pray for them.  Lane and I ate at Chinese restaurant, gave tract to the clerk.

    On the 2nd, Lane and I picked up our granddaughters, and drove with them to Frankfort to visit Lane's parents.  We had a good day with them there.  We drove home, and our son picked them up later.

    On the 3rd, Lane rearranged her tools in our garage, and I worked on my writing.

    On the 4th, we went to our church, and then to a restaurant for lunch.  I gave two tracts to the clerks.  As we drove home, we stopped at a concrete statue place, and bought two gnome pieces, fun.  I have a tract to the clerk, who with his beard looked like a gnome himself!  At home, I updated my journal, my FB page, and our website.

    Thank you so much for your prayers, and please continue to lift us up!

    Food for Thought and Prayer:

    Being a little weird is just a natural side-effect of being awesome.  —Sue Fitzmaurice

    February 10, 2016: 481 years ago today, German Reformer Martin Luther wrote in a letter to his wife Kate: “Pray, and let God worry.”

    The transformed and renewed mind is the mind saturated with and controlled by the Word of God.  —John MacArthur

    Christ’s sacrifice was intended both to provide salvation for all and to procure salvation for all who believe.  –Dr. Norman Geisler.  This powerful belief statement punches through the false dilemmas found in both universalism and limited atonement.  —Ron F. Hale


    1. No one can want God unless God wants them. (Total Depravity/Inability)

    2. God doesn’t want everyone, but only a select few who were picked for reasons unknown to us before time began. (Unconditional Election)

    3. God sent His Son Jesus to pay only for the debt of those He selected before time began. (Limited Atonement)

    4.  If God wants you then He will make you want Him back. (Irresistible Grace) 

    5. Those God wants will most certainly continue to want Him and be saved. (Perseverance of the Saints). —unknown

    #s 1, 2, 3, and 4 are false.  They are contradicted by Scriptures in several and various places.  —Richard Graham

    When a view becomes popular in culture, it seems certain some theologians will discover it in the Bible and church tradition.  —John Frame

    If you’re always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.  —Maya Angelou

    The human mind always makes progress, but it is progress in spirals.  —Madame de Stael

    Life is wide, limitless.  There is no border, no frontier.  —Bruce Lee

    Before they died

    Muhammad said, I don’t know the purpose of life.

    Buddha said, Seek for the truth.

    Confucius said, I am not the way.

    But Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, except through me.

    Jesus is the only one who rose from the dead.  The other three are still in their graves.


    Noah looked insane till it started raining.  Don’t worry what the world thinks.  Keep preaching and posting.  —unknown

    If you say to me, “Is it fair that the sin of Adam should be imputed to me?” I will reply by asking, “Is it fair that the righteousness of Christ should be imputed to you?”  —Martyr Lloyd-Jones

    The greatest benefit of open-air preaching is that we get so many new comers to hear the gospel who otherwise would never hear it.  –Charles Spurgeon

    Another way that this awful destruction tended to promote this great affair of redemption was that hereby God remarkably exhibited the terrors of His Law, to make men sensible of their need of redeeming mercy.  The work of redemption never was carried on without this.  –Jonathan Edwards

    A religion which costs nothing is worth nothing.  Awake before it is too late.  Awake and repent.  Awake and believe.  Awake and pray.  Rest not till you give a satisfactory answer to my question, ‘What does it cost?’  –J. C. Ryle

    Six Things Mentally Strong People Do

    1. They move on.  They don’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves.
    2. They embrace change.  They welcome challenges.
    3. They stay happy.  They don’t waste energy on things they can’t control.
    4. They are kind, fair, and unafraid to speak up.
    5. They are willing to take calculated risks.
    6. They celebrate other people’s success.  They don’t resent that success.

    I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career.  I’ve lost almost 3,000 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed.  I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed.  —Michael Jordan.  Richard Graham—In other words, take the shot!  Or, in our case, share the Gospel, whether or not it looks favorable!

    The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.  It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.  The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.  Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.  The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool.  It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.  —Vaclav Klaus (former Premier of the Czech Republic)

    About Us

    Godzfriends was the website for our RV Ministry.  At some future point, we will convert it to our books, travels, and crafts website.  Watch for it!

    We retired May 1st, 2019, from being Director of Missions and secretary for the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association in the Long Beach area of SoCal.  The association commissioned us to be RV Missionaries.

    In January 2022, we bought a house in Louisville, KY, and plan to do more ministry from here.  We plan to make more trips, but for the present we are writing my books, making her crafts, and enjoying our sons, daughter-in-law, and grands!  We are also looking to see how God may use us in this area.

    Are You Too Small?
