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?
By Del Duduit A couple years ago, Angie and I attended the Florida Christian Writers Conference near Orlando, Florida. It changed our lives. The writing journey I had just started was about to take off in a big way. I had completed some tasks suggested to me by my now friend, co-author, and business partner,… Continue reading On Deck: Dugout Devotions
By Del Duduit This is the day when people establish some unrealistic goals for the upcoming year. Instead of going to Walmart, men and women will shove themselves into an unfamiliar gymnasium in hopes of building that perfect and fat-free body. Of course, they will do this after they watch all the bowl games and… Continue reading The Dreaded Resolution
By Del Duduit Over the past few weeks, I have written about Christmas caroling, my favorite Holiday movies, and my list of cherished Christmas songs. I have wrapped and opened presents, including my new Penguin coffee mug from my granddaughter Sophie, and I have stuffed myself with my mother-in-law Arlene’s famous Christmas sugar cookies. I… Continue reading Happy Anniversary Silent Night
By Del Duduit WARNING: Cheesy blog ahead: With Christmas Day next week, I wanted to write a post and stay within the Spirit of the Season.

By Del Duduit There is nothing more fulfilling than taking time on a cold winter’s night to sing Christmas carols to the elderly and those who are shut in. Angie and I, along with several members of the Rubyville Community Church, did that again last night. We’ve done it since I can remember, and it… Continue reading The Silence of the Night
By Del Duduit Christmas time comes at the end of the year and embraces the spirit of giving. As I grow older, I honestly love to give much more than I do to receive. The last few years, this has become more apparent. My wife, Angie, will ask me what I want the kids or… Continue reading A Christmas Tree to Remember
By Del Duduit This weekend marked the official beginning of the Christmas season. And no, I’m not referring to Black Friday. That’s a day set aside by retailers as a real life pay-per-view boxing match. I avoid that day and stay hunkered down and nearly unconscious from my food-induced coma. But what I mean is… Continue reading What Did Mary Know?
By Del Duduit Everyone should have a special day just for them. For some, it might be a birthday or an anniversary. Mothers and fathers have a block on the calendar where they should be pampered by their children and grandchildren. Presidents have a day of observance, and our veterans need to be honored every… Continue reading A Night to Shine for Special Needs
By Del Duduit This blog will be a little different than ones I usually post. I enjoy writing about inspirational and ordinary people I meet along the way and convey their messages of hope. For me, it's more than a hobby. But I want to take a few moments and reflect back on the year I… Continue reading My Thanksgiving Message
