melh1We all possess a gift; A gift that God can use to bless others. I cannot be so modest as to deny the gift God has made evident in my life. My gift is creative design. I served as a Children’s Minister alongside my wife, Maribel (Mari), for over 20 years. During that time, I created some pretty amazing sets for Children’s Church, Vacation Bible School, church functions, and others. You can see some of my past work HERE. I also held the Associate Pastor position for about 10 years. Even though I was inspired to write quite a few creative sermons, I never considered myself a writer per se. It wasn’t until recently, after being encouraged by Mari, that I decided to venture into the blogging world. Her encouragement and praises have given me the confidence to write and share what has been stored in my heart for many years. 

I love lighthouses. I collect them, have visited over two dozen, and plan to visit many more before I enter eternity. I even have a Lighthouse Passport that is stamped at every lighthouse I visit. For years, I have been fascinated by the architectural design and purpose of these magnificent sentinels of the sea.  My dream is to one day own an actual lighthouse or at least live in a house where my “man cave” is designed to resemble one!


Lighthouse Devotions is intended to reflect the peace, strength, and hope I experience in the presence of lighthouses. But these inspirations would be meaningless if they did not bring glory, honor, and praise to One who is the true beacon of the world, my savior, Jesus Christ. I dedicate this blog to my wife and I sitting here humbly asking God to use these inspirations to encourage other lighthouses (believers) to shine the light of Christ in a spiritually dark world. 

I have also been encouraged to share my non-lighthouse-related writings. Here is the LINK to my Words To Ponder blog.

      • PTL! The Lord used you to send me a little of His light my way through Brooke of Noes to Knows when she nominated me for your Light of the World Award. By God’s generosity, I was able to share some of that light with others. God bless you and your blog! It’s all about Him, so it is blessed already!
