#Whatever New blog post up today =)

Commit to the Lord Thinking back to when Traci and I moved our family to Michigan five years ago, it must seem funny to God what plans we had made. We knew we were following His lead, and without a shadow of doubt we know that everything that transpired was because of His perfect planning, but we

Thoughts about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on today's blog:

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is always an interesting one to me. In our area, many of the schools are in session, in part, because the annual school calendar doesn’t line up well with this third Monday in January (this is the start of finals week, and missing Monday is certainly not convenient for ...

We Should All Be A Little Leerie

Check out today's new blog post: "We should all be a little Leerie." It includes reflections about dating, Mary Poppins, and Robert Louis Stevenson. Seriously.

This past weekend, Traci and I enjoyed a date, ( something we try to do weekly ) and after lunch, and a little shopping at Costco, we stopped by the local theater for a matinee viewing of the new Mary Poppins movie. We’d both heard reviews, good and bad, from friends who had previously viewed the ...

The Blog is back! Be sure to check out new posts every Monday and Thursday, including today’s first post of 2019.

Last summer I was traveling through the highway and byways of West Virginia after a speaking engagement for IFCA’s national youth conference. I was making the 10-hour trek from the beautiful campus of Appalachian Bible College to my beautiful wife and kids in northern Michigan. As often happens du...

THANK YOU to everyone who helped us push our latest title, "Removing the I from Life" up on the Amazon charts earlier this month. End-of-month sales show we had our largest, single-book, single-month, Amazon sales ever! We pushed Steve's book in to the Top-25 in Christian devotionals which has given us an even broader audience with which to connect. THANK YOU, THANK YOU and THANK YOU for helping us spread the Overboard message!

Removing the I from Life: The Dethroning of King Me

We have about 14-hours left to make a push for our latest book, "Removing the I From Life: The dethroning of King Me". THANK YOU for helping us break in to the top-50 yesterday, now let's see if we can crack the Top-10 today. If you want a great book to read, or a great first-of-the-year small group study, this is the one. Grab your copy from Amazon, and help us make a push for the top of the list and get this book in front of THOUSANDS of other readers!

Life gets messed up when King Me is sitting on throne of your heart. To become the man or woman that God created you to be, you must remove the "I" from life; it's not about you. It never was, and it never will be. This devotional book will help you create real, lasting change, as you apply the t...

Author Steve Etner announces the release of his newest book: "Removing the 'I' from LIFE: The Dethroning of King Me"

12/17/2018

You help us reach THOUSANDS OF READERS on Amazon! Tomorrow morning (Tuesday the 18th) at 9am (EST), please consider purchasing a copy of our latest title, "Removing the I from Life" on Amazon. By creating a rush of sales in a short window, we can secure an Amazon "Best Seller" notification which puts our book on the radar of people who might not otherwise search for it.

This Bible study/devotional will normally sell for $15, but to help us get a jump on our ranking, we are listing it for just $12 this week on Amazon. We promise that it's a great title for men and women, and would make an excellent Christmas gift, or a useful guide for kicking off 2019 with the powerful reminder that life is most fulfilling when we make it about God, and not about us.

Remember, starting Tuesday at 9am (EST), we have about 24-48 hours to get our sales numbers jumping. When we do that, THOUSANDS of people will be exposed to this great book (and other titles by Steve and Overboard Ministries!). Thanks for your help.

There is no scriptural basis for segregation. The ground at the foot of the cross is level, and it touches my heart when I see whites standing shoulder to shoulder with blacks at the cross" - Dr. Billy Graham (from the 1950s)

From a 2011 interview: "I would study more. I would pray more, travel less, take less speaking engagements," he said. "I took too many of them in too many places around the world. If I had it to do over again I'd spend more time in meditation and prayer and just telling the Lord how much I love him" -- Dr. Billy Graham

"Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God." - Billy Graham

Throughout the day we want to share some of our favorite Billy Graham quotes, in honor of his passing. Billy was an amazing man of character, a preacher's preacher and man passionate about God and the Gospel. Almost all believers living today have been influenced by him, his 30+ books and his countless sermons.
