So... as the presidential election slowly approaches it's time to start looking at the candidates. Even though I'm of the firm belief that it's the church's ultimate responsibility to lead the nation to God (and not the President's) it certainly doesn't hurt to have a genuine believer in the White House. The President has so much power, even in a system of checks and balances, they still have the ability to steer our entire nation this way and that. Even "subtle" agendas have drastic affects on generations to come. Once again, even though it's up to the believers of this nation to stand up and bring change, we can't underestimate the power of Godly political leadership. This is a spiritual war that should be fought on many fronts.
Enter Mike Huckabee... an experienced conservative that holds fast to faith & family values. He has a strong plan for Iraq, he's not overlooking our borders, and is forward thinking on the economy and foreign policy.
He's an underdog, but as of late has had considerable press and a recent upswing in the polls. I think he has a good a chance as any to win the Iowa caucus, and beat out the big dollar campaigns.
It's also worth mentioning that he's from Arkansas and has experience running against the Clinton political machine.
I would encourage everyone I know to look into his campaign and think of giving him your suppport.

After hearing about this book from my wife's family. I started reading it, interested to see if it lived up to the hype. I would say that it most certainly does. A book about tradgedy, emptiness, feeling lost, and being overtaken by a revelation of God's love and perfection.
It seems that even late in life we can God can show Himself to us in a way that turns our brain upside down. He's infinite and personal at the same time.
This book is an encouragement to me and will be to many people.
