Million dollar bills are great ice-brakers. Try it and see!
These two tracts take the reader through the 10 Commandments in detail to disprove the common understanding that "I'll go to heaven because I'm a good person." The Bible says the Law is given to be a mirror in our lives, showing our true conditions. No one is good enough to enter heaven because we've all broken God's commandments! The Bible also says, "The Law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul." (Psalm 19:7) Once people are confronted with the truth of what sin is, then they can understand their need for the Savior.
This tract, written by Michael Pearl, is larger in size, and takes a little longer to read. It presents the Gospel very thoroughly and clearly, with great illustrations throughout. I love giving this one to guys. They just seem to respond well to the picture on the front. I also like to use this to put on people's cars in parking lots. I used to look for the closest parking spot at stores. Now, I find one at the end of the lot, and slip these under the windshield wipers of all the cars as I walk towards the door to the store. Thankfully, no car alarms have gone off on me yet! :-)
Two weeks ago, a friend from church and I decided to hit the Wal-Mart down the street from church and place one of these tracts on all the cars until we ran out. It was so much fun! We even gave a few to real live people that we ran across in the meanwhile. The church's address is printed with a stamp on the back, so that people know where it came from, and if they want, they can come visit.
I also like to use this tract to slide into the handle of the pump I use at gas stations. It's long, so if curved, it fits perfectly and doesn't blow away when rolled up inside the handle. The next person who uses the gas pump after me is in for an eternal message!
This tract is free of charge. You can order them at http://www.nogreaterjoy.org/
Won't you join with me in sharing the Gospel with every creature? It's a big job to do! But think of all the hundreds of people out there who need to hear a message of hope before it's too late. Eternity is a long time to be wrong.
You may think tracts don't do much good. The devil has often tried to discourage me with this lie too. But then I remember Hudson Taylor, the missionary to China who won hundreds of people to Christ! He became a Christian because of a Gospel tract. That one little booklet was used of the Lord powerfully in his life, and as a result, it affected an entire nation of people!
We aren't called to produce results. We're simply called to plant seeds and water them. It is God who gives the increase. May He strengthen us to work while it is day! The night cometh when no man can work.
Time is short. Eternity is forever. Let's take as many people with us to heaven as we can!

Deborah Drapper is a 13-year-old homeschooled girl who lives in England with her parents and 10 siblings. Somehow, the BBC found out about her and did a 1-hour documentary about her life. I haven't been able to watch the film, due to its removal from You Tube, but I keep reading rave reviews by fellow Christians about the tremendous inspiration that documentary gave them.
According to all that I've been reading about Deborah and the radio interview I listened to of her on Ambassador's Alliance radio, this young woman is on fire for the Lord Jesus! She is a bold proclaimer of the Gospel who regularly witnesses on the streets of England. Not only is she passionate about proclaiming God's truth, her lifestyle reflects a holy, set-apartness that is refreshing to discover! As a result, she has caught the world's eye.
To be inspired yourself, check out the article about Deborah at the Rebelution:
Then, pay a visit to her blog at: http://www.deborahdrapper.com/
I highly recommend listening to the interview with her on Ambassaor's Alliance radio, which is posted on her blog.
May we all learn to be so bold for the cause of Christ.

Starting to get into the swing of all things "wedding"... I like to keep the mood light. =)
Oh, yes. He is ever on her mind...
Wedding dress sewing is underway!
While sewing is hardly an activity I consider exciting...I guess some people feel differently. :-)
