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 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 A Thankful November
By Del Duduit The cornerstone of the Christian religion is centered around faith. We believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was crucified for our sins and rose three days later to defeat death and the grave. Simple. Right? That's our faith. Webster says it’s “complete trust or confidence in… Continue reading Is Your Faith Impossible?
By Del Duduit I hate it. Just when I am supposed to feel good about circumstances in my life – boom – I am hit with feelings that are the opposite. I can’t control them either, and that makes it more frustrating. Over the past several months, some awesome events have taken place in my… Continue reading A Timely Encouragement

In two days, our home in Southern Ohio will be visited by several little children (and a few… Continue reading Trick or Treat
By Del Duduit October! This is my favorite month of the year for many reasons. Football is in high gear while the MLB playoffs begin. October is the start of God making new colors to decorate the leaves and crisp evenings with family around the fire pit. It’s the time to sort through and find… Continue reading I love October!
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
By Del Duduit Some people have their lives planned out. They go to college, major in a certain degree and find a career right out of school in which they work until they retire. That sounds awesome. Me? Not the case. I attended Ohio University, majored in Sport Sciences and had dreams of working in the… Continue reading Are you ready for change?
By Del Duduit This past weekend, Angie and I attended two events in town with two different purposes, but one main emphasis. We woke up early on Saturday, something I love to do, and headed for "fuel" at Tim Hortons. Then we drove over to CRADLE, our local Crisis Pregnancy Center, for a walk through… Continue reading What a weekend of Life
