Robert Sweesy has been in involved with retailing the last sixteen years with Family Christian Stores. He has a heart for missions, discipleship, and men’s ministry. He’s been blessed to travel to South Africa and Guatemala on short term mission trip, and will be returning to Guatemala in March to help build homes for widows and feed hungry kids.
Robert writes, “I have seen God move in my relationships, my company, my family. Walking with God daily in this love affair is what keeps me alive. I’ve seen God deliver funds right as our family needed them. Beyond all of that I’ve seen Him soften hearts, most importantly mine.”
He is the owner of Endurance Press, a fresh new publishing company based on Hebrews 12:1. He writes, “our books reflect the fact that all of us are in the race of life. We all have sins and habits that hold us down. In order to run with Endurance we must shed those things that hold us back.”
Robert and Lisa discuss running the race with endurance, Christian retailing, publishing, and more!

Bethany Light is the daughter of a minister who can’t forgive her father for running off with the church secretary. She goes to her own pastor for counsel, never expecting to fall in love with him. To make matters worse, she’s personal training his fiancé in preparation for the big day and somehow ends up in their wedding.
Refusing to make the same mistake her dad made, Bethany tries to focus on fixing her family rather than face her own issues. How could a household that used to have it all together have fallen so far from grace? And how can she keep from following in her father’s footsteps when it feels so right?
With evocative, fresh dialogue, mixed with humor and real-life stories, Fire Song invites us to discover our purpose and place in the ancient, unfolding drama we find ourselves in-the story that began in Eden, and defines who we are and what it means to be human. Most of us feel disconnected from this story, as if we’ve been set adrift and donʼt know the way home. But we retain a memory, however faint, of the way we were and ought to be-but no longer are. Like the echo of a melody we never learned but once knew by heart, the ancient story burns within us and beckons us to sing again.
Fire Song asks us to consult our intuitions, common sense and intellect to consider the existence of God, the nature of creation, the reality of the soul and the purpose of life, in addition to questions surrounding the possibility of historical knowledge and Biblical authority, the problem of evil, person of Jesus and what it means to be human. The result is a disarming but compelling invitation to find Jesus at the center of our story as the best example of humanity, and our only hope of living like full human beings again.
