Dear Michele:

I get many emails in which people ask me how to live their lives or how to help other to live their lives according to the will of God. This is not an easy question to answer. First of all it is impossible for me, you, or anyone to live according to God's will on our own. It is GOD Who works in us both TO WILL AND TO DO of His good pleasure (Phil. 2:13).  There is the answer.

God brought you to our site and therefore God wants you to read the material on our site. This you probably have not done. Most people write me after read a few hours or a few days and ask me questions that are answered in the hundreds of pages of material that they have not yet read.  I can show you and teach you God's word, but how you incorporate that into your life is not possible for me to do. Here is where you must go to God. Only God can show you the true spiritual side of things. There is no easy fix, there is no simple formula, there is not a secret message that I can give you that will answer all of your questions.

Teach you daughter the truths of God just like you would teach her to sew or how to bake a cake.  If you see the Truths of God, just show them to your daughter. Either God opens her mind to these Truths, or He doesn't. I wish that there was more I could tell you. I am overwhelmed with emails from people who want me to help solve their problems. I haven't solved all my problems.  I just live with them. Some I just ignore altogether. We are APPOINTED by God Almighty to have trials and tribulations and problems. I would just encourage you to read the material on our site. I am doing the best I can to help and encourage, but ultimtely, it is between you and God.

God be with you,

Ray
