EXCELLENCE IN TWO AREAS of ministry has been achieved by a few; it has been a rare genius who has been so gifted in three areas, but to excel in four capacities would seem near impossible...but it has been done two or three times in history. Reuben Irvin Paddier is a classic example, for he was renown as an teacher, a youth leader, a and an author.
Besides his obvious gifts in all these areas, he is also a man of prayer, a student of the Bible, and an outstanding personal soul-winner. It is said that he daily read the Bible, having a good working knowledge of old and new testament. Some students of church history feel he is promoting personal evangelism than any other one man since the days of the apostles. Hi ... read more

The only way I can honestly describe myself, is how I see myself; and you can be sure that this image of myself will differ greatly from how others see me, or how I actually am.
How I see myself is as something like an iconoclast. I see myself as a humorist and a very curious fool.
Outside of 'ezine' publications, a story that was produced on 'Tales from the Darkside' titled "Bigalow's Last Smoke", some script revisions here and there for a vancouver film company, and my own wiki site (which is primarily poetry), my primary livelihood has been over 25 years in the Film and Television industry in the USA and Canada.

Hello, my name is Jeremy Parker, I live and work in the South West of the UK. I am married and have two children.
The Get More, Get Better course has been a learning journey that has taken me many years to complete.
I read; books on how to get better at sex, countless books on relationship improvement, books with titles about what to do if your marriage had no sex in it whatsoever, books on how to have sex with your partner in long term relationships, magazine articles on seduction, even books on how to pickup women. And as I read I made notes, mainly by way of picking out the good bits which applied to my situation (of which, unfortunately, there were few). As I read more, and tried to find out more informat ... read more

Virginia has been writing her whole life. Her lifelong obsession with the written word began as a child. She could often be seen carrying around a battered orange duo-tang, scribbling down her thoughts and questioning life in the relative safety of her own home. Later, she attended college to study Journalism, and turned those philosophical thoughts into full-length feature articles for local newspapers, before creating her first full-length novel, Hauntingly Familiar. Virginia married her high school sweetheart and had two children. She and her husband live on a quiet acreage in Mission B.C., Canada, where the battered orange duotang has been replaced by a laptop computer. Virginia is hard at work on her secon ... read more
