By God’s grace, over the next few months Mr. Brewster’s traveling schedule will continue to grow. He plans to represent both Evermind Ministries and Victory Academy for Boys on his travels. He greatly appreciates your prayers and would love to connect with you if you’re in the same area.
He will be at Living Hope Bible Church in Roselle, IL tomorrow for a short visit during the morning service.
While we praise God for more opportunities to minister in churches, we’re thankful for the writing ministry here at Taking Back the Bible. If you didn’t read our feature article, Removing the Mask, you can click through to it here.
This coming Monday we’re very excited to publish Part II of Your Emotions are “Inside Out:” How to Destroy Your Family in 2:10 Minutes. Don’t miss this powerful deconstruction of Pixar’s newest trailer for “Inside Out.”
Again, thank you for your continued prayers and support. We at Evermind Ministries are incredibly excited to see what God does through us this year.
The Evermind Staff
We are very happy to announce that the next 5 weeks will bring a few small changes and one very exciting change to Evermind Ministries and Taking Back the Bible. That’s all we can say for now, but we hope you’ll continue with us through this providential time of growth.
Until then we will continue to fulfill our three goals.
On Sunday you can read “Peace In: Part IV.” We hope it will be extremely applicable to all of you, especially those who have struggled with doubt, worry, and anxiety. God has amazing promises for those feeling overwhelmed by the pressures of life.
Our weekly feature will publish on Monday. It’s entitled “Does God Hate Your Music?” Our president, AMBrewster, will present a timely and necessary formula to test whether or not our music glorifies God.
Thank you for reading/sharing, praying, and giving.

We look forward to introducing our new Sunday Sermon Series tomorrow.
As we’ve prayerfully decided which content will be the most effective and Christ-honoring, we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way to deal with God’s Word is exegetically. Exegesis is the is a point-by-point handling of the Scripture that takes into consideration the entirety of the work. Topical preaching and teaching is helpful, and we embrace such communication, but we mustn’t neglect thorough exegesis. So, we will spend our time on Sunday doing so.
Our plan is to start simple, so we’re reviving and refurbishing a series that was started a while ago by AMBrewster on the subject of peace from the book of Philippians. Tomorrow’s post will be a an introduction to that series, and he is very excited to have a chance to finish it.
In the future we hope to tackle full books.
As always, we are greatly appreciative for those of you who subscribe and read. We’d also like to encourage you to share and comment. You can be a blessing to our other readers when you provide insightful, truths via your comments and replies, and you can expose others to these posts by sharing.

"If We Evermind" Whether it be two roads Or a sea to travel Uncharted, we have no reason To fear or need to quake Because He has not left us Empty or weak, but rich with truth. And if we heed, we will not be blind; If indeed we harken - if we evermind. When comes a day that darkness shrouds Or plenty falls away to famine, We need not say that we’re abandoned For all the way He stands, and patiently, Tenderly He waits for us to follow The pin-prick daylight He spreads Before our feet. May we trusting walk the line Betwixt the dangers on either side. May we evermind. The same on morning splendor, When feasting on goodness fattens Our minds, and lazing softens our faith, May we trusting turn our glass And reckon Him. Not mistaking the blessing From His hand for working of our own, We praising stand and thank in kind For gifting us with life and truth to evermind. There is no trace of human wisdom to compare With a single phrase of His light. He stands Above and sways the nations, He speaks and worlds obey His smallest whim. He willingly explains in words so clear – So humanly plain – that we can meet each challenge. We can trust His way and tread sublime For He creates the truth that we must evermind. And when we keep His words before our eye And turn our feet toward His Book, His perfect wisdom metes to us in measure Exactly what we need. There is no want, But always greets us on the morn Bounteous mercy and grace and direction Perfect to speed us toward His chosen time; If we follow, if we listen, learn, and evermind. -AMBrewster-
So far we’ve discussed what Evermind desires to accomplish by the grace of God. You can read that here.
And we’ve also shown you how we hope to accomplish those goals. You can read that here.
Our mission will never be fulfilled by human means or by human power. We readily acknowledge that we need God through it all. But the beautiful thing about the body of Christ is that God chooses to use His children to be the instruments of grace to other believers.
It is for this reason we ask that you strongly consider doing one or all of the following:
1. Pray – Petition God that He grants us the grace and wisdom we need to share His truth in His way for His reasons.
2. Follow – Like us, follow us, and share us on social media. The more people we can reach with the answers to life and godliness, the better!
3. Invite – We know there are a lot of godly resources available out there, but we would love to partner with your family, group, class, ministry, or program if you will have us. We have a driving passion to share with the broader body of Christ what He is daily showing us through His Word!
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us.

Yesterday we introduced you to what Evermind hopes to do.
Evermind Ministries exists to keep God’s Word at the center of the human experience by teaching it, reminding of it, and applying it to life.
Today, you’ll see how we plan to accomplish these monumental goals.
We want to tackle our three-pronged mission with a three-pronged approach. Continue reading “What is Evermind? Part 2”
What Does Evermind Mean?
If you Google the word evermind you will find links for bands, web designers, and organizations. You will also find that Merriam-Webster says it’s not a word. Hmmm.
But Evermind Ministries is a Bible-based organization with a very well-defined purpose.
In the late 90′s Aaron Brewster came up with the word evermind to mean the exact opposite of never mind. It means simply “to continually keep at the forefront of one’s mind, and to make the center of one’s thoughts and motivations.”
We chose to use this word for our Ministry because we’ve found that God’s truth is frequently the last thing on people’s mind when they’re in line for coffee, navigating a mine field of bad drivers, in the throws of a child’s tantrum, or when they’re typing empty words into a business memo. But the divine reality is that God’s truth should not only always be in view, it should be the reason we’re standing in line for coffee or handling a child’s tantrum.
“Seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.” I Peter 1:3
Everything we need for life can only be found in the true knowledge of God. That true knowledge can only be found in the Scriptures. We must evermind God’s Word.
Our Mission Statement is simple: Continue reading “What is Evermind? Part 1”
