In Everything Give Thanks!


Thanks to God for my Redeemer, Thanks for all Thou dost provide; Thanks for times now but a memory, Thanks for Jesus by my side. Thanks for pleasant, cheerful springtime, Thanks for summer, winter, fall; Thanks for tears by now forgotten, Thanks for peace within my soul! Thanks for prayers that Thou hast answered, Thanks […]

Texas Ho!

Production Center

The decision has been made. Last week it was officially announced that IBLP will be relocating its headquarters from Chicago to Big Sandy, Texas. The trends over the last 15 years have shown that the ministry has more properties than it currently needs, and after much prayer and consideration it was decided that it would be […]

The Fight to Rest

Last weekend during our time in Virginia we heard a heart-stirring message on the Storms of Life. I was reminded that we are all facing something and while some burdens are larger than others, pain is a fact of life. How do we deal with that pang of loneliness, dashed expectations, or despair? Where do […]

A House of Prayer


“It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer.” – Matthew 21:13 I am so grateful to work at a ministry where prayer is integrated into our everyday work lives. Who would imagine allowing their employees to pray during work hours? Yet hasn’t it been said that prayer is the greater work? Last Thursday we gathered together to lift up […]

There is nothing like the sound of bells at Christmas time! It was such a joy for several of us to participate in the IBLP handbell choir again this year. A heartfelt thank you to Esther for the many hours she put into organizing, scheduling, and coordinating everything to be prepared for playing at the […]

O The Deep Love of God


The Lord led several of us this year to begin getting more involved with a local church here in Chicago, and it has been precious getting to know the families at Marquette Manor Baptist Church. They invited Jonathan and I to sing in the choir, and Esther has joined the orchestra. Esther was asked to play for […]

Our Virtuous Mother

Thank you Mom and Dad!

“The words of the children of the Staddons, the example that their mother gave them. “How is it Dad has found such a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. His heart doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no fear of an empty checkbook. She doeth him good and […]

Turn the Tide

It is a joy to sing with Esther!

“Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.” (Psalm 80:7) The Lord gave us this verse as a rhema for the song Turn the Tide that Esther and I have been learning as a duet. Whether the Lord moves miraculously to bring revival to our […]
