How much of an influence can one man have? Elvis Presley died 42 years ago. His life was a spectacular blur from the time of his first hit recording of “That’s All Right Mama” in 1954 until his untimely death in 1977. This past weekend, my wife, Angie, and I toured Graceland, the home of… Continue reading The Gates of Graceland

Over the past few years, I have posted a plethora of patriotic blogs and have established my love of God, family and country without apology. I am proud to be an American… Continue reading I Pledge Allegiance

I met Paul and Rana at the Roy Rogers Festival in Portsmouth, Ohio a few weeks ago and was intrigued by their story. Paul… Continue reading A Minor Consideration
By Del Duduit More than two years ago, my entire life changed when I attended the Florida Christian Writers Conference. I met my agent, Cyle Young, there in 2017 and signed a book contract the following year that has developed into an exciting series with New Hope Publishers and Iron Stream Media. Through the writer… Continue reading A Whole New World
By Del Duduit Please don’t judge me when I tell you that I cannot recall ever watching a single episode of Little House on the Prairie. I didn’t watch much television growing up because I was the youngest of four boys and was either watching or playing sports or defending myself from my older brothers.… Continue reading Are You Typecast By Your Past?
