Come to Church…it’s cool….

Hmmm where to begin…

Life has been extremely busy over the last week.  I was blessed last Saturday to have some free dental work done and I must say you gain confidence when you are told nice things about your teeth and gums.  I mean is it just me or is going to the dentist intimidating?  But I came out with a fresh smile and having talked with several people who were such blessings and encouragment to me.

Monday was the big day….classes started back at PSI!  I must admit I was not sure how this week would go.  This is my first semester of taking classes two days a week.  Monday I was up at 5 a.m. to be out the door by 6 a.m. to make it to my 8 a.m. class on time.  Only when I am driving to PSI do I have the urge to move to Atlanta!  I enjoyed both of my classes.  My first class in Interpersonal Skills with Dr Brock…whom I love!  She was such a blessing to me at TFC I am so excited God opened the door to allow me to have her again!  I also have Personal and Spiritual Life of a Therapist which I really enjoyed and I am going to be challenged by!  I arrived home around 7 p.m. that night and proceeded to sack out on the couch until bed and then fell asleep hard and fast around 11:30 p.m.!  This new schedule is definitely going to take me some time to adjust!

Tuesday I overslept and forgot to set my alarm so I felt like I was running behind all day!  I now have 4 residents in the Joy House with a fifth coming in soon.  I have never had this many residents…and classes on top of that so I will be praying for peace and guidance over the next few months!

Wednesday was my late day I slept until 6 a.m. :o)  I also have two classes this day.  Group Psychotherapy is my first class and I must say I was kinda disappointed with this one…It just did not live up to my expectations.  I also have Human Growth and Development (for the third time!) but I think I am going to like it…plus Dr Terell is teaching this class and she is fabulous!  So as for my title this is where I am completely astonished sometimes by churches…said title was on a sign outside a church while I was on my way home Wednesday.  I decided to try a different route to avoid traffic (it worked by the way!) and saw this sign and church…why must we become like the world to get people to come to church? 

Thursday was a wonderful day because Mighty Mary finished the program!  I love when we have Joy House graduations…it is such a special time…full of rejoicing :o)  She is such a special young lady and I cannot wait to see how far she goes!  God is Good.

I have been so excited today as it is Friday but then I think of what I must do this weekend and realize my weekends are not my own any more…

Sometimes being a grown up stinks…haha

So that was my first week of classes…I am looking forward to this semester it is going to be a great deal of work and I still have things to do for my intensive weekend class….I will get it done though…not on my own I will need His help greatly.

(Multnomah Fiction August 21, 2007)


Mark Mynheir


Mark Mynheir is a cop writer. He has authored Rolling Thunder (The Truth Chasers Book One) and From the Belly of the Dragon (The Truth Chasers Book Two).

During his career as a police officer, Mark has worked as a narcotics agent, a S.W.A.T. team member, and a homicide detective. Mark and his wife, Lori, live with their three children in central Florida.


The Truth Chasers Book Three

Someone’s trying to play God…and he’s turning Palm Bay into hell.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement Agent Robbie Sanchez devotes her life to crime prevention, and it shows: She has no personal life and doesn’t know the meaning of a day off. After all, someone has to be around to clean up the mess crime leaves behind.

So when Officer Brad Worthington is brutally murdered, Agent Sanchez is called to the scene along with Brad’s best friend, Detective Eric Casey. The two turn to Lifetex, the genetics lab near the scene, hoping their elaborate security system might have captured the crime outside.

But what’s going on inside the lab is far worse: a renegade scientist is cloning humans! As Robbie and Eric pursue clues–and a growing attraction–they are caught in a deadly battle as the clones begin to act on their own volition…but this battle threatens to claim more than human life; the clones are vying for human souls.

The Void is nothing short of a page-turner. Mynheir is truly hitting his stride as one of our industry’s most notable Christian novelists. This latest book has it all: suspense, humor, intrigue, realistic police action, and one thought-provoking story line.Creston Mapes
