Straight Talk

Thanks for joining me at Straight Talk where the rubber meets the road.

We aren't interested in pie in the sky answers, are we? Each of us have REAL spiritual questions to deal with in our life which don't easily fit into the pat answers we often get. I will try my best to shoot straight, be practical, and remain true to God's Word and truth.
