Top Questions I’m getting about Walking the Bible Lands

My new premium Web site already has new members excited.

For years I’ve been aggravated that the amazing benefits of experiencing the Holy Land have been limited to those who can travel to Israel. I determined to help solve that problem with my new premium website, Walking the Bible Lands.

Through the wonder of HD video, now anyone can experience the devotional benefits of the Holy Land with a click of the mouse.

The invitation to join the site has had a great response!

One of the new members, Terri, wrote me a couple of days ago:

Thank you, Wayne, for creating this website for us! I don’t think any of us imagined how wonderful this website really was going to be, but after listening to your welcome video on how to navigate this site, I am very excited and will be praying for you as you take the time to educate us. We have been to Israel in 2014, but to be honest, we went so fast that it’s a ‘blur’ to us—and this is going to really seal it for us. My husband and I are very excited to learn more and we thank you for dedicating yourself to God’s children this way.

Jeff also wrote and said:

Hi Wayne… I’m so excited about your Walking the Bible Lands! I got signed up yesterday as a charter member and was planning to sign my mom up as a gift.

Top Questions

I have also received quite a few questions from those still on the fence. Here are the top questions.

  • Can I see the Passion Week videos again before they’re unavailable? Yes, although the 3 Passion Week videos won’t be public for much longer, you can access them any time you want as a member.
  • Will I receive anything in the mail—like a DVD or CD? No, the content is 100% digital to view online. You get instant access and don’t have to wait for the mail carrier to show up! Your virtual tour begins within minutes of becoming a member.
  • What happens after I become a member of Walking the Bible Lands? You will create a username and password in order to access the members’ area. There you’ll find an introductory video that explains all of the videos, audios, and the bonus content. You will also receive an email confirmation of your purchase and your personal username and password. 
  • Can I get access to the membership site all at once or only in pieces? You will receive access to all of the content instantly when you place your order. You can go at your own speed and engage with the material whenever it’s most convenient for you. I do provide a video that gives you a recommended roadmap for your virtual tour. 
  • Can I wait and buy later? Public enrollment closes on April 19, 2017 at 11:59 PM Central time. The doors close and won’t open again until later. But the price will never be $20 a month again. That’s a special price for anyone who becomes a Charter Member.
  • Are my credit/debit card details secure?  All payments are processed through a Secure Site License (SSL) payment processor and are 100% secure.
  • What if this product doesn’t meet my needs? No problem. You can cancel your membership at any time. 
  • What if I have a question or need support? We are here to help. Simply submit any questions you have via our support page on the membership site.

What questions do you have? Feel free to leave a comment below and ask!

What Your Constant Home Repairs are Really Repairing

If you’re like me, you’ve noticed something is always breaking or needing upkeep around your house. I have to confess it’s been a doozy of a couple of weeks. Oh, man.

What Your Constant Home Repairs are Really Repairing

Stuff wears out. Off the top of my head, here are a few samples from the last two weeks (no kidding):

  • I replaced our clothes washer motor.
  • My car needed new tires.
  • A sprinkler head broke.
  • Our mailbox stand needs replacing, so I’m building a new one.
  • Our mower needed a new “hood.”
  • I replaced the septic tank’s electric pump.

I’ll just stop there. Who knows what’s next? I’m convinced the constant breakdowns and home repairs in our lives are really designed to repair something else.

These are intended for a bigger repair.

10 Ways Woodworking Affirms Your Spiritual Life (Part 2)

Years ago my wife bought me a table saw for Christmas, and I’ve enjoyed the first hobby I’ve had in my life. I like what the Canadian born physician, Sir William Osler, once told an audience of medical professionals:

No man is really happy or safe without a hobby, and it makes precious little difference what the outside interest may be—botany, beetles or butterflies; roses, tulips or irises; fishing, mountaineering or antiques—anything will do as long as he straddles a hobby and rides it hard.

The master carpenter scrapes it smooth.

But woodworking is more than a hobby. It has marvelous metaphors for your spiritual life.

In an earlier post, I shared the first half of 10 ways I’ve discovered that woodworking affirms your spiritual life:

  1. You will have to cut cross grain, so stay sharp.
  2. Good tools save you time and give you better results.
  3. You can do a lot more than you think with the little you have.
  4. Following a plan gets you where you want to go with greater success.
  5. Mistakes always teach you, and they rarely ruin the piece.

In this post, let’s complete the list it’s taken me years to write.

What would you add to the list?

10 Ways Woodworking Affirms Your Spiritual Life (Part 1)

My favorite Jewish carpenter other than Jesus is Norm Abram. I’m a weekend woodworker, and the hobby has done more than just save me money and provide a healthy diversion for my mind.

It’s more than sawdust and saw blades. For me, it’s also spiritual.

10 Ways Woodworking Affirms Your Spiritual Life (Part 1)

During the many hours I’ve spent woodworking, I’ve come to realize how much of the craft relates to our walk with God. I’m not alone. The Shakers of the 19th-century viewed the craftsmanship of their unique furniture as an extension of their worship of God.

I want to share with you 10 ways I’ve discovered that woodworking affirms the spiritual life. I’ll do this in two posts.

For fun, I’ll also show you some pictures of stuff I’ve built.
