Welcome to Soul Survival!

If you’re new here you might wonder what we’re all about.

At Soul Survival I share about God, His Word, and His work in our lives.

I do that in several ways:


Bible in a Year

Blogging through the “Bible in a Year”

It began with my own journey, including many previous attempts and failures, to read through the Bible and share what I was learning.

I first did that through a daily email to about 100 ladies at my home church, but as the email list continued to grow, I began sharing here at Soul Survival. Be sure to read this post explaining why I believe it’s so important to read God’s Word regularly.

Slippery Slope

Christian Living posts and series

I’m a Biblical Counselor (Association of Certified Biblical Counselors) and I write about subjects like parenting, marriage, homosexuality, blended families, sin, theology (and why it’s so important to practical everyday living), and more. I will be doing much more of this in 2016. Sign up here to receive email notifications.


Knowing God

Book Reviews

Good biblically sound books allow us to walk with and listen to great men and women of God, both contemporary writers and the saints of the past. I’ll be reviewing even more of the ones that have blessed me.



great postsIntroductions to other websites/bloggers

I sometimes share links to other bloggers whose writing motivates and inspires me or links to helpful online resources like, Matthew Henry’s Commentary, and Grace to You where you can read Dr. MacArthur’s Daily Bible for free.
