Matthew 17:20, my favorite verse. "... If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

Choosing the Right Web Master

For anyone who doesn't yet know, I now have a website http://www.reginatittel.com

I encourage everyone to stop by and see this impressive work of art. My web master, Tony Gonzales, did an amazing job. On my web site, not only can I sell print versions of my books, but Mr. Gonzales also set it up to enable me to sell eversions too. If you click on the book page you'll see them beautifully displayed on a cherry book case! Don’t stop there. Click on one of the books, then go to 'book excerpt.' Another page will appear featuring an open book where you can read an excerpt from the book you chose. It's genius!

Next, click on my media button. If you choose press releases, you'll see an eye-catching page featuring pictures that coincide with the book. (If there's only one, that's because the others haven't been added yet. Same with the videos.)

So when choosing a web master, first determine what you want your site to accomplish. Then research other websites of similar interests. (I researched various well-known authors to see what their sites featured.) Collect this information for your tentative web builder and see if they can meet your needs within your price range.

The web master I chose can build sites to meet a wide range of needs. Don’t be shy, contact whomever you're interested in and check out their talent.

Are You Spiritually Prepared?

Life is full of daily choices. Each day we choose to put on the armor of God . . . or not.

Imagine waking up in a war zone. You've been trained how to use weaponry, how to camouflage yourself with your environment and how to signal for help. Yet, as you open your eyes to the blast of gunfire and reach for your rifle, you find the ammunition chamber empty. In your panic you jump to a stance and realize you've been stripped of your uniform (you've been left your skivvies). You realize your need for help and reach for your radio but the batteries are dead.

Who's to blame?

You are. Because you chose not to refill your weapon, the chamber's now empty. Because you chose  to go to bed in comfort rather than be prepared, you haven't a uniform. Because you chose not to stock extra batteries, no one can come to your rescue.

Think about it.

What does the Bible say about prayer, fasting, knowing how to give an answer? If you don't know, ask a fellow believer, join a Bible study group, attend church . . . and last but certainly not least, read your Bible!
