Hopeless headlines are dominating the news cycle. It is called psychological warfare, and the goal is to elevate stress to the point of exhaustion and then fuel fear so that people lose hope. To win this battle (the battle of the mind), one must saturate their mind in the Word and ways of God. If My People is a cry for the people of God to turn back to God, to seek His face, and to receive the blessings He promises to those who will humble themselves and seek His face.
We are at a crossroads. Opioid and alcohol abuse are leaving a path of destruction in their wake. Pornography is desecrating families. Obesity is skyrocketing and plaguing millions, reaching epidemic levels in children. Heart disease and cancer are—by far—the leading “killers” in America. And on and on it goes, from nicotine to caffeine to food. As a society, we are out of control. But are there answers? Yes, absolutely—if we once again set our sights on God’s truth.One of the greatest joys associated with pastoring is seeing others filled with the Spirit of God: “You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). My goal is to fan the flames of passion toward God. This book is not a step-by-step guide written from a medical perspective; it’s a biblically centered resource pointing you to the One who has the answers.
Through fasting, the body becomes a servant instead of a master. The obvious goal and benefit of fasting is spiritual, but the physical benefits as well. Can you pray and seek God better with a headache, tight pants, and a sluggish, lethargic body strung out on your favorite addictive substance? Of course not. But keep in mind that fasting is not about self reliance but reliance on God.
America is divided on many fronts. Where are the answers? How will the future and security of America unfold in the days to come? My previous books address personal issues. This book, however, recognizes the biblical foundation that once guided America. These principles are the foundation on which America’s success rests.
This book is a compilation of past articles, sections from other books I’ve written, and sermons preached at Westside Christian Fellowship—the best-of-the-best. We pray that this collection of targeted topics fuels an intense desire for more of God. Though the road ahead may be uncertain at times, the solid ground beneath will never shift. It’s all about Who you know. Desperate for More should be the heart cry of every believer. “Bold, Outspoken, and Prophetic, this book is sure to awaken, convict, and challenge…” -Alex Montoya; Associate Professor of Pastoral Ministries, The Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, California
There is a dangerous trend in the evangelical church today. A futile attempt is being made to conform God’s Word to social norms, rather than to conform social norms to His Word. As a result, truth is vague, doctrine is blurred, and the fundamentals of the Christian faith are often avoided. For this reason, this book outlines some key issues confronting the church today such as absolute truth, unity, judging, abortion, sexual sin, politics, compromise, revival, preaching, repentance, and so on.
Today’s cultural norms often run contrary to principles designed to promote healthy relationships. In a bold new approach, the author challenges cultural views and directs the reader back to sound principles.

In all cases, readers will be given the information they need to experience success.
