• Knowing God’s Path

    We had a chance last summer to visit Europe as Shelby was pitching for a US softball team through France, Belgium and the Netherlands. We took the opportunity to end the trip up north in Sweden and visit one of my dearest friends, Ted Jeans and his family. We decided to take our cameras along and get Ted to share with us a Turning Point in his own life–and he ended up giving us a great lesson on how to know God’s […]

    My Father’s Spiritual Journey

    “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 There are very few people on earth that when you really get to know them,you realize that this is a true Man of God. My dad is one of those people. When I read the OldTestament and David is described as being “a man after God’s own heart”, I thinkthe same thing about my dad. He’s been an incredible blessing in my life as helearned to hear the voice of […]

  • A Family’s Choice to adopt a special needs child from China

    Early in their dating life, Jeff and Robin dreamed about adopting a child from China. But after they got married, had a couple of kids of their own, life was moving on and that dream was fading away. With the pressure of raising their own children, their jobs, and never having that “extra” amount of money to start the process, it started to look like that adoption just wasn’t going to happen. What would it take for them to rekindle […]

  • A Unique Concept of how a church is reaching the lost

    What if there was a church that for the first 30 minutes of the service did nothing spiritual? That’s just what you’ll get at Godwhy. This is the story of John McClendon and his journey from being the traditional evangelical pastor to running this interesting take on reaching the un-churched. It wasn’t an easy transition. He had to step away from all that he knew and embark on a journey of faith as God led him to this unique concept […]

    Stories of Delight

    We’ve had the joy of connecting with the creators of a neat ministry that is springing up across the nation for young women in college called DELIGHT.  Hopefully next week we’ll have our video up highlighting how MacKenzie Wilson and MacKenzie Baker started this movement with a simple Bible study on the campus of Belmont University in Nashville. Part of what they’re doing is putting together books of stories of what God is doing in these women’s lives and they’ve […]

  • The Night of Shame

    The Night of Shame

      We started ttp.tv with the greatest turning point of all on Easter Weekend. Now I want to share the first turning point in human history–The Fall. Shelby had a project at Biola to do something creative with a spiritual concept and this picture was the result. She chose to use the darkness of night to highlight the eerie effect of man’s first disobedience. But it made me think about that moment. Genesis isn’t exact on how much time transpired […]

  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Phil 4:13)

    Each week, whether we have a new video to share or not, we’re going to be posting a Scripture that holds a promise for us in our walk. We don’t have a new video yet, but there is some exciting things happening that we’ll share in a bit. One point I want to make early on is that we don’t have all the answers here. We’re about sharing people’s turning points, which will point us all to the answer—Jesus. When […]

  • He is not here, He has RISEN

    These words from Matthew 28:6 and the response I have been saying in church every Easter Sunday since I can  remember, “He Has Risen Indeed” are a powerful statement of the most important Turning Point in history. The day Jesus rose from the dead and completed the work of redeeming mankind. We couldn’t think of a better weekend to launch this new website venture of ttp.tv than Easter Weekend. You see we’re all about turning points here. This website is […]

    30th Birthday Bust, Clay Jacobsen

    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11     It’s a day I’ll never forget, March 22, 1986. I felt like a total failure—what a way to celebrate my 30th birthday. But let me back up a bit. To understand why a milestone like beginning your 3rd decade could be so depressing, you probably need a […]
