dear friends,

it is with a heavy heart i write this entry. last night, governor huckabee withdrew from the gop presidential race. i am heartbroken, as are many others.

governor huckabee represented true substantive "hope, promise and change" for america. governor huckabee embodied the beliefs of evangelical christians and patriotic americans. governor huckabee articulated our values, our principles and our convictions. governor huckabee gave us a voice and a place in the process. governor huckabee represented us... governor huckabee fought for us.

thank you, governor huckabee. thank you, for giving of yourself and your family, for all of us.

never before, had i been involved in politics. never before, did i care who was running for president. never before did i consider myself a 'grassroots activist' or even dream of blogging. but, governor huckabee, you changed all that. yes, you changed all that, for many many americans.

governor huckabee has awakened and inspired evangelical christians, social conservatives and the average american to get involved in the public square. he has dared us to believe that we can make a difference. and that we, indeed, have a valid place and voice in the process. he has demonstrated that a "little", with God's help, prayer, committment and hard work, can produce "much." he has taught us the power of perseverance, tenacity and a message. governor huckabee has taught christians, to unashamedly and unapologetically STAND FOR OUR CONVICTIONS.

what a tremendous lesson this has been for christians. inadvertantly, as a result of the political power playing and lack of support of "christian leadership", the rank and file christian base have quickly "grown up" and learned to make our own decisions. we have learned to "stand up on our own." and you know what? we like it.

there is no turning back. the true colors of many, have been revealed throughout this political season. many in political and christian leadership as well as in the media have lost a tremendous amount of support, respect and relevancy amongst the evangelical christian base. the ramifications of this, will be clearly evident.

the evangelical christian base has been energized and mobilized by governor huckabee's campaign. despite governor huckabee's exist from the gop race, the political and evangelical landscape has, and will forever be, indelibly changed.

the rank and file christians have found their voice, and their leader. we will march on....

i have no idea what God has in store. i felt certain, God has something planned involving governor huckabee, during this critical time in american history. finally, a godly man that had not only convictions and principles but experience to execute the job. frankly, i am still stunned that governor huckabee is no longer in the race. i, along with many others, who have been fervently praying for governor huckabee, felt certain God would intervene and cut the path to the presidency.

but, it is not so. in thinking and praying, i with the gospel, as with many in the Bible, GOD GIVES US A CHOICE. that is the beauty of our God. yet, along with that choice comes consequences, both good and bad.

i felt many of governor huckabee's supporters to be somewhat of a remnant standing for biblical principles and values. it was very exciting. however, based on the majority of americans supporting and voting for mccain, as well as me, it is indicative of where america stands spiritually.
now, in america, there is no longer a right or a wrong. there is no longer an absolute in the Bible. there is no longer a moral standard or code. that way of thinking, is now attacked and considered close minded, judgemental, and unloving. it is now, all about what 'feels good and right to me', 'what's okay for me', 'what I want,' 'what I need', 'what I want to do'. God has been taken out of the equation, the thought process, the schools.... christianity has now become a convenient dilution of God's Word and God's standards to meet the desires and standards of the person. how sad. how very scary.
how we desperately need God. how blessed america has been, as we founded our country on biblical principles and followed leaders who embraced God and His ways. how very scary as we stand back now, and watch america taking a turn away from God, and away from what has made us so great.
friends, this is a scary time, but i continue to rest in the fact that GOD IS IN CONTROL. God may allow some hardships for a season, but He will not allow it go beyond what we are able to bear. we must continue to pray that GOD'S WILL BE DONE and pray that the eyes of americans will be opened. pray that america will realize the abundant blessings and love of God, and their desperate need for God.
well friends, for this time, as in the pslams, i say, 'selah'.... this is a time to pause and reflect on what has happened, and get ready for what lies ahead... as God leads...
we serve a mighty faithful gracious and loving God.....never ever forget that!!!!
even when things don't turn out as we had hoped...GOD IS STILL MIGHTY, GOD IS STILL FAITHFUL, GOD IS STILL GRACIOUS, AND GOD IS STILL LOVING.... GOD IS ON THE THRONE...He knows best...
i pray you continue to walk with Jesus, and stand back and watch the glory of God revealed in your life and in the lives of those around you...
"not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." philippians 3:12-14
press on, friends...
blessings to you...

with the texas and ohio primaries upcoming this tuesday. i thought it would be appropriate to give americans another opportunity to hear governor huckabee, as he addresses values voters, and the issues that are important to us.

actually, there was a msnbc values voters debate scheduled for today. an invitation was extended to both john mccain and mike huckabee. unfortunately, only governor huckabee accepted. apparently, john mccain feels he has the nomination secured, and does not feel a need to address values voters. (this is the 2nd values voters debate that mccain has not atttended.) apparently, john mccain is relaxing somewhere out of town today, recovering from the rigors of campaigning, and, no doubt, strategizing with his campaign advisors.

however, for those values voters that still desire to hear the candidate for president, address the issues of the values voter... i thought the below speech by governor huckabee fit that bill perfectly.

friends, we do not need more promises made by politicians. we need the passion and personal convictions of a president that owns his principles, and is willing to live by them.

take aside about 25 minutes, and give it a watch. it will speak to the issues, and to your heart.

trusting the Lord, to see us through....
fighting and praying on...

"do not be afraid of them. remember the Lord great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses. whenever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. our God will fight for us." nehemiah 4:14b & 20

dare to dream, friends...

God can do above and beyond what we can ask or imagine. GOD CAN DO ALL THINGS. let us do our part. let us be dilligent in deed, and faithful in prayer.

"for nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few..." 1 samuel 14:6b

onward, by God's abundant grace and mercy...

AMERICANS STILL HAVE A CHOICE: Huckabee the Only True Conservative Candidate Left...


below is a great phone interview with governor huckabee on newsmaxtv. in it, governor huckabee clearly articulates his conservative principles and viewpoints. governor huckabee's committed stance on many conservative issues, clearly differentiates and contrasts him from the other candidates running for president.

governor huckabee is the only true conservative running for president. he is the only candidate passionate and committed to protecting the sanctity of human life, traditional marriage, and empowering americans that still believe in, and want to live, the american dream.

here is a fantastic article from jsonline. it clearly and concisely breaks down what governor huckabee stands for as a true conservative. give it a read.

Conservatives can trust Huckabee
By Tim Dotson
Posted: Feb. 16, 2008

Mike Huckabee is the choice of conservatives.

On fiscal conservatism, he believes wholeheartedly in the reduction of cost to the taxpayer, especially entitlements. In Arkansas as governor, he was able to reduce welfare rolls by 50% and he held the line on taxes, leaving them the same as when he took office. He successfully fought to increase deductions and lower taxes such as capital gains. He also signed the Americans for Tax Reform's pledge to not raise taxes.

Huckabee understands that money spent on entitlements is almost three times the amount of spending on the military. Thomas Jefferson said, "The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." By working to reduce those who are dependent on entitlements, we strengthen our economy and our nation.

On conservative foreign policy, Huckabee vows to finish the war in Iraq, leaving when democracy has been established. He is fervent about removing our dependency on foreign oil by increasing our production at home for the short term and investing in renewable energy for the long term. He also is committed to securing the borders and ending the cycle of illegal immigration, which has become such a huge problem for the United States today.

Huckabee is the only candidate I completely trust to support our Second Amendment rights, as he has a longstanding track record as a sportsman and conservationist. For hunters and shooters of all sports, and those who believe they have the right to own a firearm, Huckabee is the only choice.

On moral conservatism, he is the only candidate who is firmly and unequivocally pro-life. He also wants marriage defined as a union between a man and a woman, and he successfully implemented a law stating that in Arkansas.

For members of the working class who are tired of having a large portion of their paycheck go to support those who will not work or are here illegally, to sportsmen who are tired of losing their rights, to Christians who are tired of seeing their values and beliefs represented as something to be shunned and to those who truly believe in democracy, there is an action you can take.

You can vote for Mike Huckabee.

friends, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. it's imperative we get the word out for governor huckabee. HE REPRESENTS US. HE SPEAKS FOR US. HE GIVES US A VOICE.

time is running short. people must choose. but i pray they will make an informed decision. that's where we come in....

the next sitting president will be faced with several major and foundational issues effecting our families and our country: the sanctity of human life, traditional marriage, supreme court justice nominations, the war in iraq, illegal immigration, just to name a few..


friends, if you have strong convictions regarding any of the above listed issues, that will face our next president. YOU MUST ACT NOW!! both of the democrats running for office have polar opposite, extreme liberal views on these vital issues. if either one of them secure the presidency, they will lead our country away from traditional values, and away from God. they will lead with a liberal hand, and accelerate the degrading of values in our country.

FRIENDS, WE MUST UNDERSTAND THE GRAVITY OF THE SITUATION. this is not just a presidential race. this year, is like none other. if you care about family and values in america. YOU MUST ACT NOW.

governor huckabee has hung in the race this long, against all odds, against the aggressive and biased media, against the powerful establishment gop. governor huckabee has personally sacrificed his personal income and comfort....for a message.....for principles....for give americans like 'us', a voice.

on march 4th, the texas primary is huge. it is a must win. we have 2 weeks until then. much of the difficulty has been the issue of inaccurate and skewed information regarding governor huckabee having been spread throughout the media. other candidates, (that have now dropped out or 'suspended' their campaigns) have previously maligned and spewed falsehoods against governor huckabee. unfortunately, these falsehoods have stuck in the minds of americans. WE MUST SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT!! we must help get governor huckabee's true message out!!

governor huckabee's message is so powerful and innovative, even barack obama has chosen to 'steal' several of governor huckabee's platform ideas (infrastructure, preventative healthcare). i suppose, imitations is a form of flattery, right?

the ironic thing regarding governor huckabee and barack obama is that many people and the media are embracing obama as the 'man of hope and change.' obama seems to have become somewhat of a cultural icon representing change. that's fine, and he is apparently an oustanding speaker. but the inevitable question is: "what has he changed? what has he done? what is his track record and experience for implementing all his philosophies and idealogy??" the problem is: nobody is asking or answering those questions. now, that is scary. not to mention his 'agenda for change', which leads america away from moral standards and values. indeed, it is 'change', but NOT change for the better.


this, my friends, is CHANGE...this my friends, is HOPE. not just words or platitudes in a inspiring speech, but SOLID and SUBSTANTIVE.

unfortunately, many many americans are unaware of these facts. they hear and read what the media and leadership choose to disseminate. by now, we are all painfully and frustratingly aware of the media's power and bias.

friends, it is OUR JOB to set the record straight and get the word out. we are the hands and feet of governor huckabee's campaign. we are the people that never ever cared a whit about politics. but have now, inadvertantly become grassroots activists. and do or die, NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE ACTION.

americans STILL DO HAVE A CHOICE IN THIS ELECTION. we need to remind them of that, and share governor huckabee's message and vision for america.

it's now or never,'s time to hit the phone banks, contact churches, leaders, friends, family and communities......IT IS TIME TO TAKE A STAND FOR OUR CONVICTIONS!!! we have two weeks..... now, let's go!!!!!!

and don't forget to PRAY ON!!!!!!!

"o my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations...for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies..." daniel 9: 18

Family Action: 2008 VALUES VOTERS PLEDGE...Please Sign & Share!!!


exciting news!!! dr. james dobson, and focus on the family action are initiating a pledge for values voters across america!!! this is a fantastic opportunity for values voters to band together, solidify our support of traditional values and send a message to washington leadership, the media and the pundits.

apparently, those in washington and the media, are discounting the power of the values voters demographic. they think values voters are a passive and ignorant sort. in light of what the msm has decided the result to be, they are assuming that although we, values voters may disagree... we good little values voters, will simply accept their declarations and our defeat, and will all go away quietly and graciously ...fading back into our church pews to go lick our wounds and comfort one another. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!! WRONG!!!!!!!!! WRONG!!!!!!!!!!

i hate to burst their bubble (well, honestly.. i do kind of enjoy it!! ;) ) but newsflash: VALUES VOTERS ARE COMMITTED BECAUSE OF MORAL ISSUES. unlike other groups that are committed to a person, or a bill or a philosophy, for values voters it is much more personal.

VALUES VOTERS ARE COMMITTED BECAUSE OF OUR FAITH, OUR VALUES AND OUR BELIEFS....NOT because someone said so, or because it was politically correct or because it was 'hip or the flavor of the month'. VALUES VOTERS ARE DEEPLY COMMITTED. AND VALUES VOTERS ARE NOT EASILY INTIMIDATED OR SUBDUED.

with that in mind, dr. dobson and focus on the family action has launched a 'values voters pledge'. in it, voters can sign up and pledge to vote their values this upcoming election. the goal is to get 1,000,000 signatures, and send a message to washington and the media, that VALUES VOTERS CAN AND WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS ELECTION.

please take the time to check out the pledge below. if you are interested in participating in this pledge, please go here. please be sure to share this with your church, friends, and family. this is a great opportunity to help mobilize the values voters to make a difference in 2008!!!

THIS IS HUGE!!!!!!! evangelical leader, dr. james dobson of focus on the family has now officially endorsed governor mike huckabee for the presidential nomination.

Special Alert
Feb. 7, 2008
Dr. James Dobson issues the following statement tonight, speaking as a private citizen.

I am endorsing Gov. Mike Huckabee for President of the United States today. My decision comes in the wake of my statement on Super Tuesday that I could not vote for Sen. John McCain, even if he goes on to win the Republican nomination. His record on the institution of the family and other conservative issues makes his candidacy a matter of conscience and concern for me.

That left two pro-family candidates whom I could support, but I was reluctant to choose between them. However, the decision by Gov. Mitt Romney to put his campaign "on hold" changes the political landscape. The remaining candidate for whom I could vote is Gov. Huckabee. His unwavering positions on the social issues, notably the institution of marriage, the importance of faith and the sanctity of human life, resonate deeply with me and with many others. That is why I will support Gov. Huckabee through the remaining primaries, and will vote for him in the general election if he should get the nomination. Obviously, the governor faces an uphill struggle, given the delegates already committed to Sen. McCain. Nevertheless, I believe he is our best remaining choice for President of the United States.

(NOTE: Dr. Dobson made these statements as a private citizen. This article is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as a reflection of the opinions of Focus on the Family or Focus on the Family Action.)

this is an opportunity for christians across america, to stop and take a serious second look at governor huckabee and what he stands for. an endorsement from the likes of james dobson (who does not typically endorse during the primaries) shows the gravity of this election cycle.

christians, spread the word!!!
