FRESH FROM THE BREWER: WELL-TO-DO LIST

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

When you are a writer, sometimes you write simply because you really need to write. I have many release valves for all different kinds of excess steam but writing, for me, is one of my major buttons I like to push. Sometimes it’s just plane therapeutic for me to make a list. That’s what this column is. A list of things I am busy at...

Memorial day comes once a year and never soon enough. I love to remember, and thereby honor, the people who have sacrificed so much for me to have a chance at the pursuit of happiness.

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

Last wednesday night I was doing a conference in Matamoros Mexico. There is a local TV station that broadcasts throughout the Central Americas and it was a big deal for me to teach and bring the word. I love the border...

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

You know I am always looking for a good story to tell and to tell you the truth, it’s typically not that hard because there are so many. There really are. Now you are not going to hear this from most of today’s talking heads but there really are amazing things going on around you 24/7 that scream God’s goodness. You just have to have an eye for them. I have my mental, spiritual and emotional trot lines set deep foranything that makes me smile and say “Thank You, Jesus!”

FRESH FROM THE BREWER: WAY BETTER THAN FROM GOOD TO GREAT

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

I was on a flight from DFW to SanFrancisco last week. My milage allowed me to splurge and I sat comfortably in First Class. Now that’s what I call suffering for Jesus! Especially first class on a trans-continental Virgin Airlines flight. Sweet!

FRESH FROM THE BREWER: KING FOR A DAY

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

GOD BLESS TEXAS
Last Monday afternoon, I was standing in the State Capitol building in Austin. Our Lt. governor, David Dewhurst banged the gable and handled it over to Senator Brian Birdwell who spent a lot of time introducing me and giving me credit for things I don't deserve. I stepped up to the mike.

With everybody looking at me, I tried to speak with out stuttering and this is what I said...

FRESH FROM THE BREWER: EASTER EGGS, GUITAR STRINGS, AND A CHANCE TO CHANGE EVERYTHING

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

I don’t know if you know it or not, but preachers who really take their job serious feel an additional pressure at Easter time. It reminds me of the old Bullwinkle Cartoon that always started off with “Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit from out of my hat.”

GOD BLESSES PURSUIT

I was drinking some milk this morning and the brand is called “Promised Land.” That sent my bible gears into full swing and my Jesus bells and whistles started going off. The Promised Land is different. Through God given strategy and courage the Jews took on walled cities, 31 kingdoms and warrior giants.
