After I wrote my first book, Walking the Walk by Faith, back in 2004-2005, I started a web site to help promote it. Then I started a blog on Blogger. It was as I began posting things on Blogger that I came into contact with Ingrid at the old Slice of Laodicia blog. One of her admins was a man named Jim Bublitz. He seemed to take an interest in helping me. He encouraged me to start commenting more on Slice and I did. Ken Silva was part of that as well, but Jim seemed to be the one who was always ready to “counsel” me and discourage me from “getting into it” with certain other people on Slice. It was also his advice which I took to move over to WordPress. He didn’t know it, but I had been working on a second book and I already had a title for it, Possessing the Treasure. When I got my new blog online in 2006 I named it after that book. It is no longer in print. However, if you are interested in it you can read it here. Both Jim and Ken have preceded us to Heaven. Ingrid is out of the discernment work business, but we are still friends on Facebook.
In 2005 I self-published a book titled “Walking the Walk by Faith” This was two years before I became involved with discernment blogging. It was a full year before Ken Silva and I became friends. In those two years I matured a great deal. After I joined the Christian Research Network team “reality” set in. I looked back on what I put in that book and realized that it did contain the truth, but it had not really prepared me for the brutality of discernment ministry. However, as things have settled down a bit I and that book has been “out of print” for over ten years I have been asked if I can provide access to it again. I have gone through the manuscript and cleaned it up some. I shudder at how naive I was about some things when I wrote it, but I have left some things in like interviews I did and referenced people who are no longer with us. My understanding of how to be in the fire as a soldier of our Lord Jesus Christ has certainly matured a great deal since I wrote that book, but there is still a great deal of truth in there. Here is a link to the e-book. To God be the Glory.
