His newest book, Love Has a Name, looks at how we can love everyone the way Jesus did, even those who are different or difficult.

    Bobby, this has been the most inspiring sermon I have heard you give. I find myself needing to give more to the Lord especially when I am on Facebook and get frustrated with the violence, hatred and pure evil that is present there. I try to scroll by but always am drawn back to give a comment on the situation. I t is not easy for me to not give a negative response especially when it shows someone who has been arrested for raping child. I was so moved by what you were saying that I am turning over a new leaf starting today to discipline myself in the way I respond to this type of posting. Thank you for being who you are and may our Heavenly Father continue to bless you and your Family with all good blessings.

    Hi Bobby! Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your sermon and am taking everything in stride as I pursue my own dreams that will make a difference in other people’s lives. Having come from a small, dysfunctional family myself, having lived without family for 35 years, it’s important this story get out and I believe it will. I have been spending the last 10 years of my journey learning about life, love, and how the world is (lessons that I should have learned some 35 years ago or more if it weren’t for sacrifices made for family and childhood. Today, I look at my journey with grace and with humor as well, having developed my own philosophy about life and family. I hope you’ve been following my Facebook page and invite other viewers as well. As the saying goes, life is a bowl of cherries and sometimes we need a helping hand to get out of the pits and of course, the grass is always greener over the septic tank (I think Erma Bombeck wrote that). Regards.
