Celebrity Private Lives and Opinions

What I’m about to say will not likely be popular. In fact, I can already hear the outrage on social media. It does need to be said. Let me start by saying that I am not attacking the First Amendment or anyone’s rights. I risked my life in the U.S. Navy to defend an individual’s […]

The Challenge of Creative Work

I find myself in an interesting position. In addition to working on the expansion of Jesus’ Outsider Ministries known as Phase Two, I am back on the market as a freelance writer, voice artist, and media producer much earlier than planned. It’s been a long time since I’ve done anything of this sort that isn’t […]

The Value of A Conscience

In the last few years, the push for gay marriage has gained a lot of steam and political power. The Supreme Court in a 5-4 ruling decided it was legal. For far too many people, legal means it’s also now moral. Legal also means that we must for forced to participate whether or not we […]

Satan, Antihero?

Yes, you read that right. Thanks to the Fox Network, we now have a program with Satan as a crime fighting antihero. The tagline for the show is, “He gives bad a good name.” Why did I say antihero instead of hero? Simple. He’s not entirely a good guy. He’s charming enough, smooth, and very […]

Beginnings, Endings, and Beginnings

I don’t think I’m alone in being grateful that 2015 is over. In fact, from what I’ve seen on my Facebook newsfeed, I’m certain that there are a lot of you glad to be in 2016. For us, 2015 was a rough year. It started very badly. At the first, my lovely bride suffered a […]

HELP!

Please follow the link to our ministry blog. We are in a sudden state of need. The studio computer, the one ask design and production work is done on, is irreparably down. We can’t go forward with our ministry work until it’s replaced. HELP! We’re Out of Commission! http://steelsoapbox.blogspot.com/2015/12/help-we-out-of-commission.html

Trimming The Fat

Have you ever felt like a deck of cards being shuffled? That’s how I feel right now. The few weeks have been earthshaking to say the least. Many of the pieces of my life have been rearranged and the process is still ongoing. I guess when you put it all on the table for the […]

For The Exposure and the Business of Writing

I posted an article on my Facebook wall that caused a minor stir. The article entitled “Wil Wheaton and Why I Won’t Write for Huffington Post Anymore” was posted by a writer no longer willing to write for the exposure. He had been sending his articles to the Huffington Post without pay. He made the […]

Coming Out of The Dark

For the last few weeks, I have been fairly dark on social media on all fronts, especially with Jesus’ Outsider and Freedom Church. There have been a lot of things happening in our lives and the Lord has been speaking to us about serious changes that we are being called to make. There are two […]

Chaos! And The Art of Finding Truth in The Mess

Chaos stinks. I hate it when nothing seems to be settled and life is one huge and uncontrolled mess. That’s where my lovely bride and I have been for the last several weeks and, by all appearances, will continue to be for a while longer. The old saying, “Sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the […]
