We had a fantastic night at Calvary Chapel of Golden Springs. We showed Lost Boy: The Documentary and, once again, the response was fantastic. More than 100 people made commitments to follow Jesus Christ.
Again, it seems like just about everyone relates to some aspect of this story, from old to young. As Joan, one of my “blogging buddies,” said:
I think one of the reasons your book has resonated with so many people is because there are multiple facets of experience brought out through each chapter. You have honestly portrayed so many different types of households. For example, I completely relate to Charlene’s home. My parents are super conservative. And I totally relate to your searching. And when you were saved, all my old memories come up of how I was before and just how it happened and how things slowly but evidently changed afterwards. The details and honesty of this book, I think help others to see their own lives – like a mirror.
Thanks, Joan, for those kind words.
Lost Boy live tonight!
Don’t forget, we will be showing Lost Boy tonight at Calvary Chapel South Bay. I will also be speaking.

Life without Limbs. . . or LIMITS!
I have only recently become aware of Nick Vujicic and his amazing story.
Nick was born without limbs, meaning he has no arms or legs. His father was physically sick when he saw little Nick for the first time, and the nurses tried to hide him from his mother, after she had just given birth to him.
But God had a powerful plan for this young man.
As a child in school in Australia, Nick was made fun of and even called a freak. But by God’s amazing grace, he was able to overcome these challenges and discover that the Lord wanted to use him to encourage others who had disabilities or challenges of any kind.
Today, Nick Vujicic travels the world, telling people about Jesus Christ and how they can have a life without limits.
A friend sent a video of Nick to me and I was amazed by it. So, I found his Web site and was delighted to see he was posting a few of my devotionals!
Nick Vujicic will be at Harvest this Sunday!
So we contacted Nick’s people and invited him to come in person to Harvest Christian Fellowship and he will be with us THIS SUNDAY! I will be interviewing Nick at our Sunday morning services, and then he will give a full-length message Sunday night.
You will not want to miss this. He will truly inspire you, no matter what you are going through right now. Watch this video of how a family was impacted by Nick’s powerful life and testimony.
