All He ever did was good." "And the Holy Spirit said, 'They're not crucifying Him; you are.'" "It wasn't the Roman soldiers that nailed Jesus to the cross. It was my sins that nailed Jesus to the cross." "I know now that someone did the something." "It was just like a bucket of peace came over my body and my heart and my soul." "This is the one book I didn't want to write. And it may turn out to be the best book I've ever done." "Image is nothing if behind the image is a facade.'" "And character is what you really are when you think nobody's looking." "But I tell our church we're not going to make the political personal here." "Integrity is the mouth of the river. It is the fountainhead." "Integrity is always doing the right thing at the right time in the right place regardless of the cost of the consequences." "You cannot have integrity without honesty, but you can have honesty without integrity." "Take the high road. There's not a lot of traffic on it." "The best way honestly, really to develop character in your everyday life is to let Christ form His character in you every day." "This book was extremely convicting to me." "If God is sovereign, there are appointments. They're not accidents." "All truths are God's truths." What has your story gifted you? Is to realize how great a sinner I am and how great a Savior He is. Paul said, "I am what I am by the grace of God." "Because without Him, I wouldn't have a story, and if I had, it wouldn't be worth telling."
