Becoming A Mature Christian: Am I Still A Spiritual Baby?

AuthorHouse, 11 juil. 2008 - 484 pages
The focus of this book is to provide a step by step process starting with the first step a person takes in their Christian growth and continues until an individual reaches maturity. These steps are in Sections (chapters). As each step is considered, you will notice emphasis is placed upon internalizing each principal taught. For instances, in singing in worship services, we sing with such fervor and thought, as if, to pluck, twang the strings of our hearts, as we make melody (music) to the Lord. In every facet and principal covered in this book, this is stressed. The sincerity of Don is indicated throughout in his deep conviction in saving souls. Although hindered greatly with Parkinson's Disease, with help and assistances of brethren in the church, he continues to conduct Bible studies with those he can find that are willing to study with him, and has realized a conversion rate of well over fifty percent. This inter-conviction is seen as he stresses the importance of each child of God being a soul winner for Christ. This book should be a source of encouragement and strength as each individual endeavors to live the Christian life.

After finishing almost 2 years of upper level Mathematics, Don discovered he did not want to teach high school math and he dropped out of college to marry the love of his life, Jeannette. He had been working with a small Church of Christ as a paid minister, but took a secular job in order that he could support his family and continued as an unpaid minister, this way he could chose which congregation he worked with, not based on monetary reasons. Don returned to college and recieved a B.S. in Computer Science. After Graduating, he went to work for the U.S.A.F where he worked as a network specialist for 20 years. After being diagnosed with Parkinson's, he retired. After Parkinson's caused him to almost lose his voice completely, he started writing a book in order to continue his ministry for God. After having concentrating for 39 years of his ministry on Christian maturity, he felt compelled to write in this area. Don spends his days between writing, spending time with his granddaughter, Winter, and writing sermons to be delivered by proxy, where he writes the sermons and others delivers them. He keeps busy and hopes to be able to serve God until the day he dies.
