I went for my every-other-day-four-mile-walk and was so glad I had my camera phone with me. I was so excited to take a picture so others could see what I beheld. I quickly took the shot then put my phone away and just stood there and enjoyed our Creator’s incredible handiwork.
I stayed long enough for the sun to change positions and bring a close to the unique light show then I continued my walk. As I headed deeper into the countryside I thought about what a blessing it is to know who to thank for scenes like the one I was privileged to see.
I can’t even imagine seeing the “sun-tree” (as I refer to it now each time I pass it) and then denying that God is the one who is responsible for the making of it. I’d have to be a fool to believe what I saw was merely a product of cosmic happenstance.
Here’s a song that was born from encounters like this with God’s creative awesomeness.
Hey guys…hunting season is now open across the nation and its not only time to for us to enjoy the “fair chase” its also time to get an important reminder that deer is only one way to spell the word. I hope you won’t forget about your dear during this hunting season.
I don’t suggest that you stop doing what you like to do in order to not make your wife a “deer widow” from now until January. Instead, I want to help you do the hunting thing right. I can assist you in doing it in a way that will not only help her appreciate your passion for the outdoors but she just might actually encourage you to get out there and enjoy it. All it requires is to do a little reading. To find out how I can help, watch the video below….and may your season be safe and successful!
To my fellow hunters, check out this opportunity for you offered by our friend, Zeke Pipher who is a fellow outdoorsman and gifted author. The poster below explains it all.
Zeke’s book, “In Pursuit,” will be worth your investment and the camaraderie you’ll experience with other hunters as you pursue God during this coming season will definitely be worth your time. Plus, check out what you can win if you join in!

Blessings on your upcoming season!
I’m excited and grateful to introduce my latest book release written especially for hunters.
The Tales Hunters Tell is just what the subtitle implies, “stories of adventure and inspiration!” The tales are based on stories I’ve lived as well as some I’ve heard along the trail of life. I suspect you’ll smile a lot while reading because you’ll see yourself in the scenes, and because hunters can be an emotional lot, your eyes might even get a little misty with one of the stories.
In addition to the ten new tales in the book, Harvest House Publishers has graciously included the entire text of the original book titled, “Full Draw.” This suspenseful story is about a hunter named Joe Tanner who, while in the woods pursuing the elusive whitetail, finds himself being pursued by a couple of dangerous fugitives. His only hope for survival is to use his hunting skills. You’ll also be intrigued by the way his wife, son and a few friends get involved in the fray.
My thanks to all of you have read my previous books for hunters and I hope you’ll enjoy this new offering. With deer season not too far away you’ll need some reading material while you wait for the big one to walk under your stand. Just don’t forget to look up every once in a while as you read!
Do you love fishing or know someone who does? If so, we’re excited to announce the release of Steve’s book, “A Look at Life from the Riverbank.” The subtitle of this newly expanded version of “Reel Time with God” explains the contents of this unique book…Stories About Fishing and the Meaning of Life!
In these well-written devotions about fishing you’ll discover how doing things like casting, steering a boat, watching the ripples on the water, cleaning your catch, or crossing a creek can help you live a victorious life.
Filled with stories lived while at the water, this book will be a great addition to every angler’s tackle box.
I’m excited to announce that our publisher, Harvest House Publishers in Eugene, Oregon has presented Steve with their “Harvest Gold Award.” The beautiful plaque he is holding in the picture represents over 1 million of his books that were sold (1,070,000 to be exact as of 2/25/14). Only a handful of writers with the company have received this prestigious award since they were founded in 1974.
Steve said about the award, “This plaque will be a visual reminder that the ‘outdoor insights’ I’ve written into the books have reached the hearts of so many others. God bless everyone at Harvest House Publishers for letting me team up with them. They deserve a plaque, too, and the best I can present them is in the form of letters I send them from readers whose lives have been changed as a result of one of the books. I also send them photos from time to time of my books that have been ‘well-read’ by hunters while in the field. The covers of the books are tattered and the pages are dog-eared
(see the lower left corner of the book in the photo!) from being carried to the woods and read multiple times. May God be praised for such an effective way to deliver His truth and hope to my fellow outdoorsmen and women.”
As Steve’s most avid supporter of his love for the great outdoors I want to thank all of you who have gotten a copy of one of his books either for yourself or someone else. I have to admit that you encourage me to encourage my “deer” husband to go more often to do “book research” (that’s his phrase for “I’m going hunting!”)
PS… On behalf of our family, our daughter, Heidi, went to her local Publix Store and ordered our own trophy to give to Steve for this milestone! Here’s a photo:
Do you feel alone as a Christian in your workplace? Do folks consider you strange because you don’t take part in behavior that you prefer to avoid? If so, you might recognize yourself in 1 Peter 4:2-6b.
“…and you won’t be spending the rest of your life chasing after evil desires but will be anxious to do the will of God. You have had enough in the past of the evil things the godless enjoy- sex sin, lust, getting drunk, wild parties, drinking bouts, and the worship of idols, and other terrible sins. Of course, your former friends will be very surprised when you don’t eagerly join them anymore in the wicked things they do, and they will laugh at you in contempt and scorn. But just remember that they must face the Judge of all, living and dead; they will be punished for the way they have lived. That is why the Good News was preached…”
To encourage you to not waver in your determination to maintain high moral standards at your job (or anywhere else for that matter!), here’s a story in song about a coal miner who chose to do so.

“So if you are suffering according to God’s will, keep on doing what is right and trust yourself to the God who made you, for He will never fail you.” (v. 19)
Now our publisher, Harvest House Publishers, has created a hardback gift book by the same title.
Using excerpted stories, memorable quotes from other writers, and the incredible paintings of artist, Dona Gelsinger, this book will be a wonderful gift for dads, sons and daughters who enjoy the hunter’s woods!
There’s a “from/to/date” page inside the front cover that can be used to make the book an even more special gift.
If you order a copy (click here) at our website and you would like for Steve to sign the book to a specific individual include a note with the order or send us an email using the address on our contact page.
