Don Follis: You have the ability to make a great presentation

I was quite proud of myself one Saturday afternoon more than 35 years ago. As young wannabe preacher, I spent more than four hours in a library focusing on the notes from one of my New Testament classes I had taken during the week.

Don Follis: What would your boat's name say about you?

Don Follis: Listen for God's voice; answer his call

My little brother could get dirtier than any kid in the neighborhood. That guy loved to play in the dirt. In the mid-1960s our ranch-style home was the first house in a new subdivision. With lots of homes going up, there were piles of dirt everywhere for my brother to explore.
