Individualized Services
illustrations selected for you

I would be happy to personally select two illustrations for your sermons for you! I request a fee of $25 for this service to cover my time and effort. Here's how it works:

  • Order the service. Fill out the information requested on the order tab and submit your payment.
  • I will receive a notification of your order and contact you by email to ask what kind of illustrations you are looking for (the subjects you want the illustrations to address). When I email you, you may do one of the following:
    1. Email to me your sermon manuscript or outline with notes in the text indicating where you want your illustrations inserted and what kind of illustrations you want.
    2. You may simply tell me what kind of illustrations you are looking for.
  • You will also be asked to give me your deadline (when you need to receive the illustrations).

*Important note: If I cannot meet your deadline, or if I do not receive notice of your order quickly enough (due to my time zone possibly being halfway across the world from yours), I will happily and immediately refund your fee.

Each illustration comes "ready to use" — that is, ready to be preached word-for-word if necessary. In other words, I won't just give you an article about a topic and expect you to write the illustration yourself.

When you request an illustration, you can give me a general idea ("I'd like an illustration about the cross") or a specific idea ("I'd like a humorous story about parenting"), and I will go hunting. I may provide the illustrations from the website, from other material of mine, or from contemporary news stories, etc.
