• The decisions that we make daily have a crucial impact on our life here and on our eternal destination. We can think of the source of our choices as contained in Life Files deep in our inner man. These files contain who we really are, our thoughts on what life is all about, decisions on how we live our life today, and what we will become. These Files are the foundation of our beliefs and can, therefore, show what kind of life we will live.

  • The Bible says to take every thought captive. That is, to be sure that the thoughts that go into our inner man [Life Files] are God's truth. This can only happen if we choose to have God's Holy Spirit in charge of our inner man and these crucial Files. This book looks at some of our Life Files such as Freedom by Forgiveness, Asking for Forgiveness, Assumptions-Creating Problems, A Servant Spirit-No Greater Calling, Tests-The Seedbed of Growth, Divine Roles, Surrender-Splendor or Despair, True Lasting Happiness, and Spirit Fruit.


  • So appreciate your gift of the inspiring book...Shaping our Life Files God’s Way. Just finished reading it. The book is a refreshing approach to practical living on earth with an eternal perspective. Easy to read, comprehend, and appreciate. Your investment of time and resources speaks well about your treasures in your life. I believe this book has helped me on my journey! I have marked my calendar to read again beginning on February 10, 2020. Sam Habegger

  • I have finished reading this book.  I very much appreciated the perspective that it provided me relative to the Holy Spirits managing our “Live Files”, and how a structured file system properly managed and used enriches the interaction with the Holy Spirit.  I plan on repeating the reading again starting this evening and mining the depths of the insights you offered.

    I appreciate the filing concept.  My brain kind of works that way.  If you saw my filing system on my computer hard drives you would see that I do certainly utilize folder structure.  This book gives me perspective that I have the ability to use the Holy Spirit as my file manager (add necessary folder structure, eliminate excess or unused folders, search for folders I may have buried too deep) in my life’s file folder structure. Very well written. Jerone Rienhard
