“Penlight” is a subsidiary of Spotlight Ministries.  The Penlight page is dedicated to written documents that offer expanded teachings as related to the shorter podcast version of some topics.

It also contains compositions of biblical events in the form of “short stories.”  These narratives will empower one to discover the intended message of those events by using facts, combined with some artistic license.

Many people absorb content better by reading and letting their hearts guide them into the light of truth through text on the page. To them words in print paint a picture, adding visual perception to the audible.  Regardless of your best method of learning, this section of the Spotlight Ministries website will illuminate your understanding of God’s true nature of love and goodness.  Thank you for exploring the content and allowing the Spirit of God to lead you.
