What is Good Enough?

I saw a video recently where Ravi Zacharias answered a student at Yale’s question, which was essentially, “Why can’t I just do good? Why do I have to become a Christian?” And Ravi Zacharias answered the question, but I feel like he over-complicated it or at least expressed it in a more esoteric or indirect... Continue Reading →

What You Can Learn From Wingdings Font

The other day I was playing around and typed “JESUS” in various fonts and, of course, gave in to the temptation to see the Wingdings font version.  Surprisingly, I found the eclectic character set has some pretty deep meaning to be attached to how it represents my Savior’s name: (J) : There is joy in...

Treason & Reason

On Twitter I follow Christianity Today and recently there have been a series of articles on the site around the topic of the “Benedict Option”.  This refers to the proposition put forth by an article run in their magazine’s March edition that suggests Christians should wash their hands of western culture and withdraw to isolated...

A Quick Look

I’ve been keeping pretty tight-lipped about my new book, Day Moon, and went over a hundred different (and somewhat dorky) ways to announce this, but I'm opting for the minimalist approach.  So, in TWO WEEKS, on March 28th, Day Moon will be released.  For all those interested, here is a synopsis of the story and...

At times my thoughts can begin very far from where they end, but this time it produced a valuable realization about God's visibility in the natural world. In order to establish... Continue Reading →

Real Rewards

It’s been some time since the site has been up and I've still been slow to update it. Events of life, particularly the bigger ones tend to interrupt the flow of things and I certainly am experiencing a lot of new and interesting things. Every day has become filled with small adventures, because of our... Continue Reading →

A New-ish Beginning

  For anyone who was familiar with my blog on my site BrettArmstrong.net, you may have noticed some significant changes, including the sudden absence of my previous posts. I hope you will be able to take them in stride, as, by God's grace, I'm trying to do so. Over time I'll add the previous articles... Continue Reading →

My First Novel in Print…Sort of

Since this is my blog's first post, I guess it only makes sense to start off with something pretty special to commemorate the event.  Recently I had the opportunity to get a proof copy of the novel I finished writing in February of this year.  After two and a half years of work, the 15 page...
