By Del Duduit Baboom. Baboom. The human heartbeat. The first sign of life. It’s a two-part pumping action that takes about a second. I won’t get into the technicalities of how the heart works, but a heartbeat indicates existence. The detection of a beating heart means blood is flowing through veins. It means wiggles and… Continue reading Protecting the Heartbeat
By Del Duduit I’m not a fan of Rap music. I enjoy the bluesy and soft jazz sound of Norah Jones. One of my programmed favorites on Sirius XM Radio is the Elvis Presley channel. Angie and I even have tentative plans to visit Graceland in August to see where the King lived. My taste… Continue reading Restart Mode
By Del Duduit In the 13th chapter of Hebrews, we are advised in the second verse: Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. What does this mean?

Some definitions describe it as “candor,” “sincerity,” “genuine,” and “honesty.” Billy Joel sang in a song that “honesty is such a lonely word – everyone is so untrue.” Go back to President Richard Nixon and the way he tried… Continue reading Truth hits a Home Run

I can understand why some people have differences of opinions. This is what makes this world unique and… Continue reading At What Cost?
By Del Duduit The last few weeks have been contentious to say the least. Every time I turn on the television, I hear about crime, murder, riots, attacks, and our nation’s political scene has become very ugly. I wrote an opinion piece for my local newspaper last week and received several hateful and rude comments… Continue reading What a ‘Night to Shine’
By Del Duduit A few months ago, Angie and I traveled to Seattle, Washington for a couple days before we met her family for a cruise through Alaska. We went to the Emerald City to be alone before we spent nine days with a bunch of fun people (wink.) Seattle was a cool and vibrant… Continue reading The Restoration Process
By Del Duduit I wanted to give another preview of a chapter inside my new book Dugout Devotions: Inspirational Hits from MLB’s Best and show how God once opened a door for me, even when it was initially shut. One of the athletes I had hoped to interview for the book was New York Yankees… Continue reading You be the “Judge”
By Del Duduit Have you ever met a person and they get you fired up in a good way? A person who instantly motivates you? Who empowers you? LaMorris Crawford has that God-given appeal. He's like this now. But if there was ever a person who could have given up on life, it was him.… Continue reading To Empower and Encourage
By Del Duduit In a few short weeks, my book, Dugout Devotions: Inspirational Hits from MLB’s Best, will launch. I love working with New Hope Publishers out of Alabama. My personal goal is to make them Buckeye fans some day. The book becomes available on Amazon on February 25, and I’m planning a big shindig… Continue reading What’s Inside Dugout Devotions?
