Among the many complex and sublime faculties of the human soul, one attribute functions as a servant to all: the nature of the soul is porous. This means that in addition to latent strengths and talents, the soul is also shaped and developed by external stimuli: we learn customs and language, habits, virtues and vices largely by importing reality as it surrounds us. Indeed, the marrow of life itself, as we subjectively know it, is created by the inward flow of these outward…Continue

Presidents from both parties, congressmen, government workers, and the media seem oblivious to the fact that small business is the economic engine of America and where true prosperity and economic growth is in the world. In Marc Nuttle’s remarkable book, Moment of Truth, he writes about one of the most important insights possibly ever stated by a leader of China. Former Time correspondent, David Aikman,…

Study after study has shown that effective listening skills can make you a more efficient, more knowledgeable, and more productive leader. But the same studies show that most of us are only 25 percent as good at listening as we are at talking.
It seems more of us need to find the James 1:19 cure in which the Bible encourages us to "be swift to listen and slow to speak." The symptoms of the disease…Continue

The secularists are going to get ticked off, the news media's going to hate it...But you know what, I don't care. Because God has called us to take the Gospel—His Gospel, the power of God and His Salvation—unto the ends of the…Continue

Dear Friend of DSM and Wilderness Outcry,
We are very sorry to announce that due to a lack of funds, the large 5-day gathering called Wilderness Outcry will no longer take place this upcoming summer. We believe this vision is of the Lord, and certainly no one can deny the desperate need of our nation for prayer, but the reality is that provision for the high cost of doing an event like this—most of which must be paid in advance—has simply not materialized. We are still holding…
