The Man Named Lena


Every now and then I take my daughters to the campus of El Camino College where I share my faith on a weekly basis.

They are no idle participants.

Eight-year-old Laurel hands out Gospel tracts while her older sister D.D. takes students through entire Gospel presentations.

I’m very proud of my girls.


One benefit of having my kids on campus is that they get a true perspective of the world they live in—and the world they will grow up into.

We do not have cable television, enjoying instead all nine seasons of “Little House on the Prairie” on DVD. Rarely do we go to the movies. Rampant blasphemy and worldviews  counter to our Christian values keep us away. There are very few video games; our kids actually enjoy playing with each other.

Our college excursions show my girls society as it really is, not as some  Hollywood director chooses to portray it.

Sometimes they get an eyeful….

Recently, in the span of one hour, my girls watched me talk to a woman dressed like a guy—who felt that she really was a man in a woman’s body. 

They saw me shake hands and greet Lena with a smile, a man dressed like a woman.  

Next I spoke to the two mothers of a toddler.

All of these people know I stand for Jesus, and that He’s the only way.

My girls observed their Daddy loving those for whom Christ died.

Without limit.

They get the best college education money can’t  buy.


  1. Awesome Steve. You’re a terrific dad, and role model to your kids and the church. Keep up the good work! I have learned a lot from you. When my sister and her two grandkids were here recently, visiting from Florida, I took them and my 4 yr. old grandkid to skidrow downtown, passed out sandwiches, then I open air preached to the huge crowds of homeless.
    Thanks to you, Richard, and Totsua who I observed, and gave me the courage.
    Keep up the good work. Keep the fire burning. Hope it turns into a forest fire! God bless you.

  2. Psa 128:1 A Song of degrees. Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.
    Psa 128:2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
    Psa 128:3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
    Psa 128:4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.
    Psa 128:5 The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
    Psa 128:6 Yea, thou shalt see thy children’s children, and peace upon Israel.
    Psa 129:1 A Song of degrees. Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:
    Psa 129:2 Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
    Psa 129:3 The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.
    Psa 129:4 The LORD is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
    Psa 129:5 Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
    Psa 129:6 Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:
    Psa 129:7 Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
    Psa 129:8 Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD be upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.
    God bless you and your family.

  6. To any closeted LGBT folks out there:

    There is nothing wrong with your sexuality, any shame you feel is just a cultural thing, you can let it go and be loved for who you are.

    • Yes, you can be loved for who you are as long as you live in this world, and given the current climate in our country, yes, you will not feel much shame in this liberalized culture that has rejected God.

      But, if you want to be loved by God and forgiven of your sins, like the sin of lying (if you’ve ever done that, then you are a liar), or stealing (ever done that?) or misused God’s name which is blasphemy, or looked with lust which Jesus calls adultery, if you’ve sinned even one time, including the sin of homosexuality, then you will be found guilty and end up in Hell.

      But God became a man in the person of Jesus Christ, suffered and dies for all your sins, was buried for three days and rose again. If you, Tommy Wou, or any other person reading this puts your trust in Christ’s finished work on the cross and turn away from your sin, then God will forgive you.

      While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

      Please Tommy, consider this. Thanks for your comments. I appreciate them. Please reply back.
