What’s the purpose for this blog?

God created each one of us in His image as a soul with physical, psychological, social, and spiritual components.  God’s purpose to me for this blog is to bring visibility and access to relevant articles and information that speak truthfully to the entirety of our souls.  As the Holy Spirit gives me insight and calls my attention to these sources of information that bring care to our souls, I will share them with all.

  1. Dr. Bellican, I am Dianne Dougharty. Perhaps you remember Mark, he came to see you for a short time after he stepped down as Exec. pastor at our church. This is a random question that has nothing to do with Mark or your blog. But, I read an article a few years ago that you wrote and in that article you spoke about the vital importance of the family meal time. I placed a quote from you in a book I am having published and have lost the source of that quote. It seems like it was perhaps a local Christian magazine, maybe put out a couple of years ago. Can you help me in order that I can sight the apprpriate source? Thank you! Dianne Dougharty

      Hi Dianne….Good to hear from you. The article you are referencing is: The Family Meal: For The Holidays … Or Every Day?

      It appeared in Mid-South Families (Nov 2010) which is a magazine published by The Commercial Appeal. Statistics I quoted in the article were derived from the CASA survey, The National Survey of American Attitudes on Substance Abuse XIV: Teens and Parents (2009) as reported in The Importance of Family Dinners V, September 2009.

      Hope that helps. Keep in touch about your upcoming publication.

      Blessings….Bill Bellican (
