Leland Family Ministry

Homeless. Orphan. Addict. Lost. These are just a few of the words you could use to appropriately describe Libbie Combee’s first 30 years of life. But stand among the rows of freshly grown produce she gives to the hungry people in her community, or sit in a Bible study she leads for those recently freed […]

His Name Is John

“How can I be sure this will happen? I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.” –Luke 1:18 Read: Luke 1 Not his best moment. If you read today’s chapter, you know that Zacharias has just been given really great news; news of eternal significance. He’s been told that Elizabeth […]

The Palm and the Cedar

“The righteous will flourish like the palm tree, they will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” –Psalm 92:12 Read: Psalm 92 Many of you know by now that Loretta and I walk each night. Not so much for the exercise — it’s simply a time to share the day. So I’d say it’s more like […]

Stay Hungry

“And I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way.” –Matthew 15:32 Read: Matthew 15 I bet they couldn’t get enough. In fact, the sun had set three times and I wonder if they even noticed. Who was this man? The words, the wisdom, the…grace! Indeed, I bet […]

Phoenix Bound

What a neat week being back. I am so glad to be writing again. And as you may or may not know, tonight, I’ll be delivering the keynote speech at the International Christian Wellness Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. I am so incredibly blessed not only for the honor of being asked, but for the mere […]

Start Pulling

I’ll never forget it. I was 19; the newest member of a very small band of brothers. We weren’t an official group on the Baylor University campus, by any means, these “Russell Rats.” We had no membership roster, no board of directors or rules and regulations to speak of, but we were very exclusive. And […]

His Work

“But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” –Romans 5:20 Read: Romans 5 Don’t bend, twist or lift more than 10 pounds. Avoid slipping and falling. Those were my instructions 120 days ago. See, by sticking to those rules, the odds were in my favor for solid fusion between the new hardware and bones. […]


Over our summer break, Loretta and I spent an evening with The Maestro of the Movies. Admittedly, this concert had been circled on our calendar for months. If the name John Williams isn’t familiar, I’ll bet you my keyboard that you know his work. In fact, if you’ve been to the movies over the last […]

The Point Of It All

PrayFit Faithful, As we’re about to resume devotions on a daily basis, I wanted to help set the stage for those who are new (and there are a lot of you, so welcome and thank you). And to those who have been with us for weeks, months or years, you know how much I cherish […]

Out of the Wilderness

Hey Everyone! I sure have missed my time with you and I’m hoping you feel the same. I hope you and your loved ones are so healthy and so happy. And while we’re still not ready to resume daily devotions, I wanted to give you an update. If you’re new to the site, you may […]
