“I feel the presence of a higher power.
I believe that what you give is what you get.
It’s universal law. I believe in the power of prayer and of words.
I’ve learned that when you predict that negative things will happen, they do.”

“We must remember that nations that choose socialism suffer the slow and agonizing
death of moral and cultural decay and disintegration. Why?
Because the high priests of socialism who offer the temptations of statist programs and benefits
aren’t seeking the welfare of their people. Socialism at its heart is atheistic and has no moral compass.
Its lifeblood is power—power gained through dependency, and
once dependency is accomplished, socialism becomes the great destroyer!
We cannot allow our beloved nation to go down the path of totalitarian states.”

President & CEO – D. James Kennedy Ministries

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who
find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given
than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare.
Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
