“Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies. If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know; but if anyone loves God, he is known by Him”
1 Corinthians 8:1b-3
Introducing The Spirit of Elijah Ministries
The Spirit of Elijah Ministries mission is to build the Kingdom of God and the local church by equipping men and their families to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. This mission is accomplished through speaking at men's, family, and couples' retreats, church conferences, homeschool conventions, as well as through audio and video resources and printed materials.
Listen as Norm Wakefield explains how the purpose of this ministry is grounded in scripture - particularly Malachi 4:6 and Romans 1:16.
"Three years ago at the Teach Them Diligently Conference in Omaha, NE my son and I met you. At that time his dad had just left us and was living a very immoral lifestyle. You gave us two resources: Teenagers 101 and Equipping Men. We have just finished those two and have been reaping rewards from the wisdom gleaned! We can not thank you enough!

"I enjoyed listening to your talks at the CHAP convention. For me, you were the highlight and blessing of the entire weekend. I intended to get to other speakers but ended up skipping others to catch all of yours."

"I just would like to say how Mr. Wakefield has changed my life. (We know it's the Lord who does the changing :-) I thoroughly enjoyed the message that you gave us at the FEAST conference on How to Build a Foundation of Faith. Thanks so much for your ministry."

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.
One of the serendipities of traveling is meeting people on airplanes. I usually have a routine when I get on a flight. Backpack stored above, book, iPad, or computer placed in the seat pocket in front of me, and then I look or wait to see who the Lord puts next to me. Sometimes my neighbor for a few hours dives into a book or listens to something on his or her phone. At other times, he or she immediately engages in conversation.
