Fun Memory: Falling in Love with Leslie Around the Piano

My parents gave Leslie and I an extremely unique wedding gift. They gave us their most prized piece of furniture – their baby-grand piano.

The first time Leslie ever came over to the house, she was sixteen years old. She walked through the front door and I pointed toward the baby-grand and said, “I want to hear you play.” ...

Fun Romance Question: What are the tell-tale signs that someone is called to singleness?

When someone brings up the topic of being “called to singleness” many singles want to run the opposite direction. (When I was single, I would always strategically skip over those passages from Paul about the blessing of remaining unmarried.) ...

Fun Memory: The First Time I Saw Leslie (Part 1 of 5)

The date was December 14th, 1991. I was two days from my twenty-first birthday, freshly home from the mission field, and in the guest room of the Ludy house praying. I was praying that God would lead my life, that He would take me by the hand and show me how to do this whole thing right. And, in keeping with the tradition I had set for myself a couple years prior, I prayed specifically for my wife-to-be. I had never met her. But, I wanted God to prepare this girl for me and prepare me for her. As I prayed that night, I saw something in my mind. I honestly don’t know what to call what I saw...

Leslie and Avy Remember the First Set Apart Conference!

The Ludy family is currently on vacation near San Diego, and thus, this video was filmed on Eric’s iPhone just outside our condo. We took a few moments away from our world of beach toys, sand castle building, sea lion watching and wave jumping for Leslie to fondly reminisce the very first Set Apart Conference back when she was 9 months pregnant with Avy (who is now our spunky eight-year-old)!...

Eric Ludy Calls on the Expert

I figured it was about time I got Nathan Johnson into the studio and stuck him behind the camera. Nathan is a key character in my life. And December 29th (today) just happens to be his birthday...

This past September 1st, we had a special guest in studio named Ben Price (see blog entitled, Eric Ludy’s Funny Friend).  Ben is known as Australia’s Best Impersonator. And he is a really funny bloke (that’s sort of like the Aussie word for dude)...

Eric Ludy Gets Sentimental

What a big week this is in the life of the Ludy family. On Sunday, Leslie and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary and I dedicated my entire Sunday morning sermon to that wonderful topic (and made my congregation endure)...

Relentless

There is one particular part of this video that just grabs me by the scruff of the neck and yanks me up out of my comfort zone. It’s that part right near the end when the resounding, “Go!” thunders over and over again. Wow! It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to begin looking for a nice flat piece of ground to pitch my tent and call it good enough...

Fools for Christ

I’m one of those strange sort of people that actually really enjoys the “foolish, doltish, idiotic” flavoring to Christianity amidst this hipster world. When you don’t fight the fact that vigorous Christianity is always out-of-style, and that Truth-telling is always unfashionable – it really helps stick a triumphant giggle in your inner-man...

Two Churches

Ah, the memories associated with this newest Bravehearted Thots trilogy! Over a period of four months (from April – July 2015), our local church in Windsor, Colorado experienced a very real spiritual revival. And this particular 3-part video series is extracted out of the messages that served to underscore that profound stretch of time.

Eric Ludy Interviews Mr. Yummy Burrito Himself

We arrived in the studio to film this particular blog video and I noticed that Hudson had a blob of lunch on his shirt. Momma was on her way to the campus and she had a replacement shirt for him in the car, so all was going to be okay. But, it turned out the shirt that arrived was wrinkled and, strangest thing, the studio’s clothes steamer had gone missing...

Astonishing Triumph

Anyone who has gone through a semester on the Ellerslie campus knows the message inside this video, and they know it intimately. Historically known in the Church as “The Identification Doctrines,” this series of spiritual realities, which are unlocked by recognizing our position IN Christ by faith, are, inarguably, what I personally would consider the most powerful, most important, and most life-changing practical Truths any Christian could ever grasp...

The Victory of Faith

Many of us view faith sort of like our Ford pickup’s license plates. Every year it is necessary to invest a little into our vehicle’s plates in order to keep that baby on the road. We pay the renewal fee, stick the fresh stickers over the old ones, wipe the work off our hands in satisfaction, and call it good...

The Action of Faith

When I preach I tend to be a “shouter.” I never intended to be a loud-mouth, let alone a loud-mouth preacher. It just sort of happened. It happened when I yielded my life, my body, my reputation to Jesus Christ and said, “You can do with me whatever You see fit!”...

Latest Video Release: The Anatomy of Faith

This three-part video series is just what I was needing today! I sat in the Windsor Starbucks with my headphones on this afternoon and got teary-eyed, slammed my fist on the table with fresh resolve, and muttered afresh my dogged faith in my God’s faithfulness! I am so taken with Steve Rosen’s musical backdrop to these three videos on the subject of faith. And, this first one is one of my all-time favorite background scores...

The Ludy Kid’s are Back with their 2nd Video Release!

I wrote the script for this particular video over two years ago. It was supposed to be a simple little production for my six kids. Hudson, at the time was ten with a high-pitched voice and Lily and Rees were little munchkins (age 3) still hardly able to speak clearly. It was going to be great and so cute that it could melt even the hardest, most formidable atheist’s heart. But, alas, it hasn’t been a “simple little production...

The Manifold Wonder

It’s strange, but there are certain days of the year that we as Christians often toss up our hands and say, “Yeah! That’s the Devil’s Day!” Halloween and Black Friday are great examples of such a defeated acceptance. So, on a day like this, most of us as Christians just accept that fact that the Truth of the Gospel takes second place to hedonistic shopping pleasure and unchecked covetousness . . . even in and amongst (ahem) Christians...

There are certain words in the Christian vocabulary that have been taken hostage by the Devil. The word Grace is one of the biggies. Some of the other notable hostages are LoveThe Holy Spirit, and Faith...
