Thoughts and Opinions from a Christian

Finding Opportunity Across the Globe

My first day in Singapore was a day that I couldn’t have ever imagined. Given an opportunity thanks to my brother who has been working in the city-state for several months now, I decided that I would take him up on his offer of coming for a visit. I didn’t know what to expect from Singapore – without a doubt, I imagine much of the world as a poorer place than the United States. It’s not like I mean to, it’s just how living here has altered my perception of things. Even told about FC maid that my brother had, I figured it was just a country full of individuals working for foreign companies.

Boy, was I wrong. Way wrong. When I touched down in an airport that would put most of America’s airports to shame, I realized that I was suddenly and incredibly wrong about everything that I had ever thought. (more…)

Cheap Storage Units for Singapore

My son is going to be moving gout of the house soon, which is something that we have been encouraging him to do for years. He needs to try to make it on his own, and I know that he will not be able to become self-sufficient, when he is living at home. That is just the truth of the matter. I do want to help him out a bit still though. I have been looking on the website for www.store-friendly.com.sg to try to find the rates on their storage units.

My son is not going to have enough room in his new apartment, in order to fit all of the items he owns in it. I am not going to allow for him to keep belongings at our house, because we need the space. (more…)

I Feel Safer with ADT Now

When I bought my new house, I liked everything about it other than the fact that it did not have a security system. I knew that I would not feel safe staying even one night there until one was installed, so it was the first thing I took care of as soon as I signed the papers to make it mine. I had looked online at different companies, and I liked what http://home-security.co was able to offer me over all the other companies selling security systems.

The main thing I liked about it was the company that they promote, which is ADT Security. I have had them for years, so I knew that they are experienced and a great company to have on standby. I have never had any break-in attempts, but they have checked on me when my alarm went off because of a faulty battery before. Knowing that they will check on even the smallest of things makes them a great company in my eyes. (more…)

We Needed to Clean Up the Trail

Even though our town is very small, all of the residents take pride in it. We have a really nice park in the center of town, and people of all ages love to go there. The kids enjoy the playground equipment, and the older folks enjoy the park benches and the walking trails. It was because of these trails that we needed to hire a tree service in asheville nc. It was the closest city to us, even though it was still 30 minutes away, and I was thankful they were able to come out to help us with a problem. (more…)

Beautiful Cemetery Monuments in New Jersey

I am getting older, but I expect to live a lot longer. I do not know for certain that I will live a lot longer though, and as such, I want to make sure that some of my final arrangements are already in place, well in advance of my actual death. I am in good health right now, but I do not want to take that for granted. Anyway, I am going to need to look into companies that do cemetery monuments in nj as I would like to go ahead and buy a headstone for my cemetery plot.

I have some different ideas for a headstone that I would like, but I need to talk to a company that actually produces them, so that I can learn more about the pricing. I do not want to spend too much money on this, because there are so many potential expenses, when it comes to the end of your life. (more…)

Trees Fell Down on the Power Lines

We had a really bad storm pass through our town the other night and it was really sad that a lot of power lines came down because of the trees on the property next door to me. I was hoping that we were going to be able to get tree service in westchester ny that was going to be able to come to our house the next day. If we did not get someone to get the trees down then we were going to be without the power for a while. I could not get over the fact that there were so many people that were hiring the tree services in our area. We were going to have to find someone from another state if it was going to be this difficult. (more…)

We Hired Them for Renovations

We were looking to do over our bathrooms and heard that there were a lot of people that were looking for interior remodeling in bergen county nj and I wanted to find out who people were hiring to do all of their work. There are a lot of people that wanted to speak with us about the different things that we had planned for our house but we did not know what we were going to do yet. I hired a contractor to come over and look at our house to tell us where we could get the most for our money and if we wanted to sell it, where the most equity would come in from. (more…)

Hair Clip Ins from Natural Hair

I have some hair extensions but they are getting pretty old. Actually, they are kind of destroyed because my cat got a hold of them, but that just makes me sad to think about and so I want to just think about the fact that they were old anyway. I was planning to use them at an upcoming party that I was going to go to. It is a bit of a formal party and so I need to look nice. Now I need to buy new natural hair clip ins and I am going to be very particular about the natural hair part. (more…)

Dish is the Best Choice for Us

My husband told me that I would have to decide whether Dish TV is right for you or not. I was hoping he would tell me which TV service to go with, but he told me that I should just research the different companies and pick out the one that was the best fit for our family. I looked at everything about Dish, because I wanted to make sure that they had all the channels that our family enjoys. I was happy to see that they have a large variety of programming packages, because that meant that we would basically get the channels that we want instead of paying for a lot of channels that don’t even get watched.

Discounts and Coupons for Shakeology

In the recent months, I have been looking for new solutions to my weight loss issues. I have heard some good things about shakeology. But it seems kind of expensive, to be honest with you. But luckily, I have heard that there are some discounts out there and ways to save money on the system. As such, I am looking for the best ways to buy Shakeology cheap on the web, and I want to give it a try soon. I am really tired of being overweight, and I have actually put on a good bit of weight over the last year, in spite of the fact that I have been trying to lose weight over that same period of time.

I am going to have to buy some new clothes for myself if I am not able to stop this trend of gaining weight that I have been experiencing. (more…)

The Next Energy Source for You

With websites like http://www.energyproviderstexas.com/just-energy-texas/ you can find nearly all the information that you are looking for in regards to utility services here in Texas. I’ve only been here for a handful of months but this is the site that I used to help me find the information I needed to pick the right energy choice for me. When a friend of mine began to tell me what choices that I would have here in Texas, I was taken back. I had no idea that there was a state with multiple utility companies that could provide power to homes. (more…)

Started to Work on the Cottage

Of course it was an easy idea to switch to DirecTV after we started working on the cottage. We live about a block and a half away from a college campus and we had enough land to build a couple of residential units. This was what made the most sense, because I figured that I would set it up so that the satellite tv would be included in the rent. It is pretty simple so long as everyone just needs one TV. That is all that there is to it. The deal I signed will let me have up to five boxes and I shall put one of them in each of the rooms in the duplex. Of course I will have to put a code in it to keep the tenants from renting the pay per view programs. I think the last Maywell fight cost you seventy five dollars to rent on Time Warner. I do not know what it cost on Direct TV. (more…)

What It Means to Remain Christian when Writing for the World

emergency artist backOne possible problem or challenge that a Christian author may face is how to effectively express his or her views and hold on to their foundational Christian beliefs when trying to write for the public at large. The reason this can be problematic is because sometime, Christian values and ideals are not readily acceptable by the public. On the other hand, those with similar views and a Christian background, can appreciate what these authors have to say and find it a great source of inspiration in their lives.

Maintaining strong Christian principles despite what a portion of the populace thinks of it, is in fact part of being a Christian. Staying true to the teachings of The Bible and Jesus Christ within it is what those of the Christian faith believe they have been asked to do. This extends to those who choose to write of their life over the Internet. (more…)

Keeping an Audience As a Christian Writer

Christian Artists Worldwide Entertainment Group - Your Booking Agency ...It is not easy to be a Christian writer. Christian artists, musicians, and writers all have to struggle with gaining a following. Of course people who share the same beliefs will support you, but you want to find a way to increase your followers. How do you keep the interest of readers in a world where only negative and provocative things sale? It can be a challenge, and it involves tapping strongly into your faith for inspiration.

One of the ways we have seen secular artists reach out to others is by relating to them on a human basis. Although we all have different beliefs, we still have one thing in common. We are all human. We are all people, and we are all either searching for or living out a purpose in this world.

Some people find it hard to follow someone who constantly discusses their religious beliefs. If they can’t relate to what you are saying, then they don’t want to read about it. There are ways that you can gain an audience outside of the Christian community. The first thing you have to remember is that we all experience struggles at some point in life.

Even those who do not believe in God will experience hard times occasionally. Discussing difficult moments in life could be a great way to draw readers in. It is not necessary to completely eliminate God’s name from your writings. On the other hand, talking about Him too much might deter some readers. Positive writing geared towards motivation and sensitivity might be the key to drawing in more secular readers.

It is possible to increase your audience as a Christian writer. You can still write about Christianity, because there will always be an audience for that. However, uplifting and inspirational writings might appeal more to those who do not share your beliefs.
