God is Omnipresent 

Why does God allow for evil to take place? Answer: God doesn’t allow it to last forever. Evil must take place in its given time. But there is always an ending. How does this work? Answer: God is omnipresent.  Let Me Explain  Imagine a painter with his canvas. Perhaps, he is painting a set of…

Agape Love vs Obsession

A man who holds true to what he believes in a way that disagrees with your beliefs is thought to be stubborn. But if what he believes is pleasing to the lord, well, then it’s faithfulness.  There is a fine line now, a stubborn man will stick to his guns long after he’s been proven…

How to Deal with Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

Prelude I must confess that I’ve been too harsh towards the wolves found in the midst of church. Deep inside, I forgive them, I care for them, and I want them to find help. I just might not have been good at demonstrating this. Victims have very difficult decisions to make. I come across as…

Huge is Out!

You can watch the trailer here! It currently has 1,133 views and 5 map reviews.  I’ve done all I can; now it’s up to the audience. Let’s see what they say. Most maps make about three thousand dollars and disappear. A select few make 10K or more. And an even greater select few make a…

I Just Published Clo and Huge!

On my way home, from Louisiana and back to Minnesota, I decided to check my slack from Microsoft. Slack is a messaging type of program used for business. You can also share large files on there. This is how Microsoft communicates with the partners. Well, I noticed the Deepwellbridge channel (which only has me and…

On to Certification!

Both Chronicles of Clo and Huge have passed content review! This is a huge step (he he) to chronicle on my blog here (he he he) as it means we are one step clo-ser to publication!  Certification is where they test the map on multiple platforms. This is to see if there are any performance…

A HUGE Re-submission!

Man, this pun never gets old! As predicted, once December 15th was finished, Microsoft moved on from winter-themed maps and returned to viewing regular maps. What I didn’t expect was to hear from them so soon! They found an issue with terrain that I promptly fixed and then resubmitted.  This is a very good sign!…

Just Submitted the Update to Chronicles of Clo

Here’s my Christmas present to you! Hope you like it. No dramatic plans for the holidays. I’ll fly back to Louisiana on the 23rd and stay with my parents for a week. Even though I’m a Presbyterian I’ll go to their church over the holidays. We always go to this great BBQ joint afterwards. Expect…

A Huge Opportunity

Microsoft is still looking at my next Minecraft map called Huge. This is normal. I’ll probably hear from them about it on Friday. Why start with Huge? It took me 5 years to make the first map. Of course, I didn’t use any editing tools, placing every block by hand. This led me down some…

The State of My Music

I got a Music Composition degree 16 years ago. This helped me greatly in getting some music teaching jobs. In this I fell in love with teaching! But now that I create Minecraft maps and have been working on returning to my fiction… What about my music? The truth is, it’s hard to make a…
