“Love is a commitment that will be tested in the most vulnerable areas of spirituality, a commitment that will force you to make some very difficult choices. It is a commitment that demands that you deal with your lust, your greed, your pride, your power, your desire to control, your temper, your patience, and every area of temptation that the Bible clearly talks about. It demands the quality of commitment that Jesus demonstrates in His relationship to us.” – I, Isaac, Take Thee, Rebekah: Moving from Romance to Lasting Love

“… The findings of this investigation have convinced us more than ever of the necessity and sufficiency of the Gospel. No one is without the need for a savior. Sin resides in the heart of every human being. Jesus is the only person who is exactly who He says He is, and the only Savior worthy of our ultimate trust and worship. Jesus is fully committed to truth and to justice, and he unqualifiedly stands with victims.”
~ International Board of Directors of RZIM
“People with mental problems are our neighbors. They are members of our congregations, members of our families; they are everywhere in this country. If we ignore their cries for help, we will be continuing to participate in the anguish from which those cries for help come. A problem of this magnitude will not go away. Because it will not go away, and because of our spiritual commitments, we are compelled to take action.”

“You only have to follow the Scriptures to understand why Jesus brought his disciples to the streets.
The best classrooms are in the streets. You get to encounter many different natural (Supernatural) & spiritual situations,
that you normally may not encounter in a church building environment.”

“Career should be a spiritual pursuit, not just a physical or financial one.
Your career should be where your dreams, aspirations, talents, and hopes
for the present and future play out.”

“Prayer and encouraging words change things. We’re all human. We all go through stuff.
The hardest part about being a celebrity is having to heal on a public stage. That’s the worst.
Imagine going through a scandal, or a divorce, or a death in the family, and running into fans on the street.
Because of where my heart is, my instinct is to put my sadness aside,
and give them a smile or a hug, no matter how bad I’m feeling.
And the appreciation of fans can refuel your spiritual tank in those situations.
But until you’re famous, people don’t realize how difficult that is.”

“I certainly believe that being in contact with one’s spirit
and nurturing one’s spirit is as important as nurturing one’s body and mind.
We are three dimensional beings: body, mind, spirit.”

“Our many different cultures notwithstanding,
there’s something about the holidays that makes the planet communal.
Even nations that do not celebrate Christmas can’t help but be caught up
in the collective spirit of their neighbors, as twinkling lights dot the landscape
and carols fill the air. It’s an inspiring time of the year.”

“Loving oneself isn’t hard, when you understand who and what ‘yourself’ is.
It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes,
the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes.
It’s so beyond all of those things
and it’s what gives life to everything about you.
Your own self is such a treasure.”
~ Phylicia Rashad,
Actress, Singer, Stage Director, NAACP Image Award,
Tony Award (2004) & Drama Desk Award
“For some people the definition of success is attaining a lot of material things. For others it’s fame or fortune.
For me, success means being fulfilled and leading a balanced life. I feel that I have truly been blessed in all areas of my life
and the only true thing to do is to give back. I compare it to tithing, … I’m tithing of my time, spirit and knowledge.”
