3.5L V6, 311HP, 280PF, RWD
Five years is a long time to wait to drive the Lexus RC 350, and while it is not the more-coveted RC F, the 2020 F Sport was a good start.
Confused? I’ll explain. Continue reading
Years ago, when I lived in the Midlands of England, a European friend of mine was falsely accused of stealing jewelry from an elderly couple’s house. The husband of the jewelry’s owner showed up one Sunday at church where we and other friends attended, and he brought this charge to the pastor. My friend was terrified, and I was furious. Continue reading

Last year, we reviewed the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback, which was way more fun than we expected, and recently we reviewed the 2020 Corolla Hybrid, which was way more practical and economical than expected. Corollas haven’t always been the most exciting model, and to be fair, they’re not really in the most exciting new car segment, but Toyota has knocked the ball out of the park two years running with them.

I get why a lot of people, even those claiming to be Christians, turn to self-help books instead of the Bible when they want to change something about themselves. The Bible can be a bit blunt, and I suppose we humans like to be coddled. Continue reading

The Mazda Miata is one of the last true roadsters still in production. Sure, it’s a subjective argument, but it’s one I’m willing to make after having the 2019 MX-5 for a week’s review. Continue reading
You just never know with us automotive journalists. Sometimes we’re reviewing vehicles in the calendar year before the model year (reviewed a couple of 2020s in 2019), and sometimes, though more rarely, we might review a model the year after.
In my case, I didn’t get the keys to the 2019 Lexus NX 300 until right around the time the 2020 models were hitting showroom floors, so I held off publishing my review until I could learn more about the newer model.
Now I’m ready. Continue reading
It’s amazing how much ground you cover when you read the first few chapters of the Bible.
The first chapter of Genesis, which is only 31 verses long, takes you through all six days of creation. The second chapter goes back and gives more detail of what God performed in those six days, and then by the first verse of Chapter Three, we meet “the serpent”. By the end of that third chapter, mankind has already fallen and been driven from the Garden of Eden. That’s some action-packed reading. Continue reading
Dads, one of the greatest things you can do for your family is to read, study and meditate on God’s Word, the Bible. If you’ve never read the Bible before, try reading the Book of John, which is in the New Testament. If you are more familiar with the Bible, try reading the whole Bible.
You may want to consider reading the whole Bible in one year! If that sounds daunting, you should look over a one-year Bible reading plan to see how it can be done in bite-sized pieces. It takes 20 to 30 minutes a day to read through the whole Bible in a year.
