“I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; You have been very pleasant to me. Your love to me was more wonderful than the love of women.” II Sam. 1:26

This relationship between David and Jonathan was a non-sexual, platonic relationship. It was so wholesome. And yet the mutual respect and emotional bond between David and Jonathan was so strong that it was greater than the love between a man and a woman.

Breaking the Cycle

“The Lord is long suffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the third and fourth generation.“ Numbers 14:18

Although God is loving and merciful He cannot force us against our own wills and change the outcomes of our own poor decisions. It is because of our own choices that bad habits and toxic behaviors are passed down from us to our children. Continue Reading »

Fear is a Prison

Today fear is everywhere. Pandemics, Wars, Natural Disasters, Inflation, etc… What will happen next?!? These events have only added to the fears that have already been common within our societies.

A Counterfeit Love

Today we hear of many “unhealthy relationships”. But how do we know whether a relationship is healthy or unhealthy? You see, our picture of what we think is a “healthy relationship” was probably modeled for us by our Parents, Hollywood movies and/or Pop music. But could it be possible that the model we’ve copied is not really the best pattern to follow?!

The term, “abusive relationship” is tossed around a lot today. But what exactly is an “abusive relationship”? And more importantly, what does it look like? Continue Reading »

The Abuse of Inaction

You’ve heard the sayings, “Talk is cheap” and “Actions speak louder than words”, which means that what people do is more important than what they say. This is especially true today as we are seeing a lot of people who are saying one thing, but who are doing something totally different. 

Today, our world is steeped deep in abuse. And there are people who voice their anger against it and many others who agree with them. Continue Reading »

A Culture of Entitlement

We live in a world of Entitlement. (Entitlement is the belief that one is born deserving of privileges or special treatment) Today, it’s in our communities, in our workplaces, in our churches and in our homes!

In the story of the 11th hour workers found in Matthew 20:1-16, we see this spirit of entitlement come to life. In this story, the Landowner goes out at different times, looking for workers to work in his vineyard. Continue Reading »

God’s Love: What Does It Look Like?

Recently, I had an interaction which brought about a vivid illustration of what God’s love looks like, including how to explain this deep love to those who have never experienced it before.

“But what does it look like?” That’s what he said to me after I tried to explain to him the love-based solution to his specific problem. I then tried again to explain God’s love from a different angle, but still got Continue Reading »

A Storm Is Coming…


A Storm is coming… Here in Hawaii, we have been seeing extraordinary storm formations within the pacific ocean this hurricane season. I am fortunate to have a nephew who calls or texts me whenever there is an approaching storm. He also informs me about the specific details of the storm. This is so important as sometimes I get so involved in our ministry that I don’t even know that a storm is coming. This warning action of my nephew reveals that he loves me because he wants me to get ready. Continue Reading »

What Our Ministry is About?


Whenever we go on speaking engagements we always get the question asked, “What is your ministry about?” So we decided that we would answer this question in our first blog. As we began to write the answer to this question, we were blessed as we were able to put into our very own words, what is really on our hearts.

A Loud & Clear Call Ministries’ passion is to reveal God’s character of love so that others may be restored Continue Reading »
