About the Author

Bonnie and J.R. Ricks are both ordained ministers and Certified Christian Counselors. They have worked in evangelism for 20+ years, currently living and operating their ministry, Dogwood Ministries, Inc., in Blessing, Texas. Their primary ministry is writing daily devotionals that are titled “Take a Minute” and are distributed all over the world.


Bonnie graduated from Hendrix College in Conway, AR with a degree in English and Journalism. She has worked as a freelance writer, as well as a writer/producer/director of industrial films and commercials, as well as teaching high school English and Journalism. She produced the first telethon for the March of Dimes in Houston, Texas, winning a regional "Telly" for one of her PSA’s. She has been published in print and has won regional writing awards for both non-fiction and fiction. She’s been a serious Bible student for over 30 years, and had a radio ministry for three years in Kingwood, Texas.


J.R. attended seminary in Houston, Texas, and is an alumnus of Texas A&M. He’s owned and sold three successful businesses, worked in radio production, and on the air as a DJ for Christian stations in Houston, TX and Salem, MO. He was chairperson of United Christian Counselors of Missouri for nine years, and served as Youth Minister at Carr Lane Baptist Church in Missouri.


Together, J.R. and Bonnie have written scripts for industrial film producers, plus had their own "talk" show on a Christian radio station in Salem, Missouri. Both J.R. and Bonnie are disabled, but continue their primary ministry – daily devotionals distributed all over the world, along with active mentoring and counseling of new Christians.


“I waited patiently for the LORD;


he turned to me and heard my cry.


He lifted me out of the slimy pit,


out of the mud and mire;


he set my feet on a rock


and gave me a firm place to stand.


He put a new song in my mouth,


a hymn of praise to our God.


Many will see and fear


and put their trust in the LORD.”


Psalm 40:1-3
