Steve's Blog

I try to use this blog to record something about my life everyday.

My Photo
Name: Steve Brown
Location: Little Rock, Arkansas, United States

On December 31, 2007 I left my job with Sprint/Embarq where I worked as a Software Engineer for 15 years at the Sprint Campus in Kansas City. In January 2008 Mary and I started Steve Brown Ministries and started traveling the United States broadcasting "Live Video" of Revivals, Bible Conferences, Mission Conferences, and other Special Services. Mary and I enjoy serving the Lord Jesus Christ and traveling to churches as we minister through We are very pleased that our ministry is endorsed and we are sent out of our home church at Heritage Baptist Temple in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Working With The New Church Wiki Site

I spent a lot of time this evening dreaming up ways to use the new CHBC Wiki site. I got Bonnie at church to type in her first event and Lee to put in his first devotional. I think we're off and running with our Wiki.

It is sleeting this evening. I went home early from work. Before dark the ice is forming on the trees.

Tuesday, November 28, 2006


Today in a mangers meeting I learned about Wiki Sites. It is pronounced, "Weekie" or "Wickie". I seem to like Weekie and it seems to be more common.

I learned that we had the software available for the church website so I installed it this evening on the Crystal Hill Baptist Church website. I have a lot of ideas on using it. We'll have to see how it goes.

Bible Reading

I spent extra time reading my Bible tonight. The Lord really knows how to speak to the heart. I enjoyed my time with Him tonight.

Knees Knocking

I have not been before a church in many years and I was shaking like a leaf this morning when I made the announcement about our new church website and singing with Mary. I think the Lord used it inspite of me messing up.

Playing With The Church P.A. System

We went over to the church with Lee this afternoon and practiced on "Sweet, Sweet Spirit" that Mary and I are going to sing in the morning. I think I'm scared to death. I have not done anything like this in many years.

We learned a lot about the P.A. System. We also learned a lot about SundayPlus. A program the church uses to present things on the big overhead screen. It seems to be a very nice program. Lee and I ripped a copy so we could learn more about it at home.

Thankgiving With The Family

This morning I fileted our 20# turkey and seasoned it good with Cavenders Greek Seasoning and garlic power.

This afternoon I spent a couple hours with our pastor, Bro. Larry Ballard, covering most every aspect of our new church website. We are now ready to turn it loose and announce it to the people. He is going to let me introduce it before the church in both Sunday morning services this coming Sunday.

I put the turkey on the smoker about 3:00 p.m. and took it off about 6:00 p.m. We had Lee, Angela, Scott, Larua, Bradley, Preston, Drew, and Ashley over for a big thankgiving feast. WOW! What a feast it was. Mary did not feed me all day so I was really hungry.

We sat around talking about old times and before we knew it, it was after midnight.

Thanksgiving In Arkansas

Since we are having our family come to our house tomorrow it is only Mary and I today. I am very thankful to be able to be at home in Arkansas with Mary today. We had a good time sitting around computing and listening to Rejoice Radio on the internet with our new Sprint Datacard. Well it still new to us even if we have had it a month or so.

Audio Bridge - Latest New Gadget

C-Media Audio Bridge I received my newest gadget from this afternoon. We spend a lot of our day listening to Rejoice Radio from the internet on our laptop. With this new gadget we can play anything(Midi's, MP3's, Internet Radio, etc.) from the laptop through the Home Theater without any wires attached. We are really enjoying it.

God's Simple Plan Of Salvation

I spent most of the evening adding a new page to the church website for God's Simple Plan Of Salvation. If you have any doubt whatever that you are going to heaven when you die I admonish you to check out this page. There is absolutely nothing in this life more important than this decision.

Great Sermons Today

It seems like Bro. Larry always has something for just me in the sermon. Bro. Larry's sermon is usually about 20 minutes of spirit filled preaching. Anyone who will listen will be blessed. You can hear him at Mary sang in the choir and the choir special was beautiful.

Awana - Work Day

Today was the day for the Awana kids from church to go rack leaves for some of the elderly in the community. Mine and Mary's job was to feed them at noon. We ordered 10 large pizzas and delivered them to the church. The kids were starving. It seemed like they all enjoyed their day.

Discovered A New Midi Site

I was searching for some music on google and discovered Heavenly Midis. We must have spent the next 2 hours or more just listening to the beautiful music on our sound system.

First Family Church Service

We attended the live service at First Family Church tonight via the internet. They had a very interesting interview with a former terrorist. We really enjoyed the preaching.

We enjoyed a very nice time at Barbara & Carol Ball's home this afternoon. Most of Mary's brothers were there. The food was outstanding.

Hooked Up The Home Theater

I spent the evening running wires through the basement for our home theater. We enjoyed a DVD with Preston, Drew, Angela and Lee. It still sounds pretty good for a system that's been through 3 moves and is 7 or 8 years old.

Here I Am On My Way To Arkansas Again

I decided to drive into Little Rock after work this evening. It was going on 11:00 p.m. when I arrived. I enjoyed some of the CD's I burned from

Stuck In A Rut

I seem to be stuck in a rut. Tonight after listening to's live streaming video I went to work on Mary's sound tracks again. I think I got 5 or 6 more converted from cassette tape to MP3's and put on our FTP server for her to download.

Rejoice Radio

I spent the first half of my evening listening to Rejoice Radio on the internet. Then I decided I better get back to Mary's project of ripping her sound tracks to MP3 files from cassette tape. I think I got 5 more completed and put on my ftp site for her to download.

Crystal Hill Website

I spent a lot of my evening scanning in pictures from the church directory for Crystal Hill. I then posted them to the picture gallery on our Crystal Hill Baptist Church Website. They are not the best quality but it's all I have to work with right now.

Streaming Preaching

I started listening to First Family Church about 8:30 a.m. this morning. That did not get over until about 11:00 a.m. I listened to all three services back to back. Then I started listening to John Hagee. I think that was the best. That lasted until about 1:00 p.m. Then I tuned into Rejoice Radio. Before I knew it it was time for the 6:30 p.m. John Hagee service. They had an hour and a half of the Tally Family. That was great. Enjoyed my day.

A Whole Day At Home

I slept until I woke up this morning. That was about 8:30 a.m. if I remember correctly. I spent the day playing with the new sound system. Playing music and making CD's of Mary's sound tracks.

New Nady Speakers

I finally got my two new Nady PS112 speakers. They don't sound as good as the Peavy SP1's I bought a few years ago for the church in North Little Rock but for $200 compared to $1200 I paid for the SP1's I think they sound pretty good and it don't take a fork-lift to pick them up.

Trying To Decide Wheter To Go To Little Rock

While working on Mary music tapes I am trying to make up my mind wheter or not I should go to Little Rock tomorrow. It seems like I meet myself coming and going. When I approach the Interstate Hwy I have to be careful to make sure I go the right direction. I forget if I'm going or coming. I think I may stay here another weekend.
