Before I introduce my featured blog for the day, I want to wish all my readers and fellow writers a very happy Friday. Some of you may write for a living, so today may not be any different from another since you do not punch the Monday through Friday time clock. I work as a Registered Nurse during the week, and only get to write in my spare time. Even though I like nursing, Fridays are still reasons for celebration. To those of you who share in my enjoyment and anticipation of much needed time off, Happy Friday!
Since I began my Friday Feature posting, I have highlighted several fellow Christian authors. For the most part, those I featured have numerous followers and supporters. Today, I would like to introduce someone who, like me, blends into the enormous community of Christian blogs; someone who, due to lack of exposure, might otherwise be overlooked. However, today’s author is someone whose posts I never tire of reading. Please welcome:
Dr. Jeff Krupinski
Dr. Krupinski has a no frills site, so if you are looking for bells and whistles, move on. Instead, he posts daily devotions, which although not accompanied by snazzy photos or glitzy adornment, are straight to the point Truth from the Word. He begins his devotions with Scripture, offers his unique perspectives and tips for practical application, challenges with pointed, thought provoking questions, and then ends with prayer. The longer I have read his blog, the more I have come to appreciate his style and his consistent format. Although basic, his site is refreshing in that it frees readers from the burden of distractions, and allows them to glean instead what Scriptural devotion followers came for in the first place – to learn more of about God’s Truth and how best to follow Him.
One of things I have discovered from following other sites is that many writers develop topical themes, similar to how pastors often have sermon series. I tend to write all over the place, part of my somewhat ADD personality, I suppose. I would categorize Dr. Krupinski as one of those writers who develops his thematic points gradually, daily, and I like this. One of my favorite of his was from his February posts, in which he wrote on forgiveness. The following link is to this post, in which he poignantly makes the connection of pride as a hindrance to the need for forgiveness:

I encourage my readers to check out this terrific site. Dr. Krupinski does not share an About page, and for some that may raise concerns. In my opinion, though, About pages are subjective anyway, and as such construed to convey personal information however the author chooses, whether accurate or not. What I have found by reviewing a new site, and certainly by following one of interest, is that it does not take long to hear the person’s heart by what one writes. If a true follower of Christ, it will be evident as Truth consistently and unashamedly bleeds through. Dr. Jeff Krupinski fits this profile, and is a consistent messenger of Truth and a bright beacon of light for Christ.
Join me in following along as Dr. Jeff Krupinski – Brings God’s Word to the World.
Addendum: Dr. Krupinski is a minister, who is married with three children. He has doctorates in both Theology and Counseling, written numerous bible study booklets, and published three books. This added information about his background is not at all surprising considering the quality of his daily posts. Due to concerns as to coming across as bragging, he does not routinely share his accomplishments. Thanks for the information Dr. Krupinski!
