Don't try this at home...

I made pizza the other night and I was excited to use my
new pizza cutter. I'd guess you would call me a penny pincher...
I really don't like spending money...
unless I have to--so I broke down and bought a new pizza cutter. I was surprised when I had a hard time slicing it.
I probably tried cutting the pizza five different times and ways...
then I noticed that it felt awfully thick...
That's when it dawned on me that I had left the
cardboard underneath...I cooked it that way too. :-)
I must have been pretty hungry to throw the pizza
in the oven with the cardboard under it. Maybe I should
just stick to witnessing. :-)

Merry Christmas!

Thank you for your kind comments, prayer and support this past year--I thank God for each of you. My prayer for you is that in 2009 you will live a life that is more God centered, Christ glorifying and bible saturated than this past year and that you will be determine to share the Gospel as much as you can. :-)

Well, Emilio and I ended up sending Christmas cards after all. Thank you for submitting your ideas of what you do for cards each year. Many of your comments were helpful.

Below is what we put on the back of our cards.

Dear Family and Friends,

We want to thank God for all the incredible blessings He has given us, most importantly the love of God, family and friends. If you have received this today, know that we love you very much and we pray that 2008 has been a great year for you and that in 2009 you will serve God with all of your heart. It may be that there are some out there who receive our cards year after year who might not know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord and we want to encourage you this Christmas season, to consider the most important thing in life--knowing God personally through having a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins and rose again from the dead to give all those, who sincerely repent of their sins and place their faith in Him, eternal life. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16). "Truly these times of ignorance God has overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent" (Acts 17:30). "But God demonstrates His own love towards us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). We are thankful for each of your lives and we love you all so very much! Merry Christmas!

Emilio and Trisha Ramos

You've got to see this clip from a well-known atheist after he is handed a Bible

Penn Jillette is a well-known atheist. He is the taller, louder half of the magic and comedy act Penn and Teller. He is the one who said, “I cross the word ‘God’ off every bill I touch…” He said, “I'm beyond atheism.” Ray Comfort pointed this video out to me tonight. Listen to what Penn says when a man gives him a Bible...

Enter to Win a FREE set of The Way of the Master Season 3 Television Program

I am excited to give away The Way of the Master Season 3 to one of you...and I can guarantee that you will enjoy it as much as I have. When Emilio and I received our set, I think we watched every episode in a total of three days!

The Way of the Master Season 3 was filmed in high definition (for broadcast only), was two years in the making and incorporates special effects and sequences that range from sky-diving to bank robbery to jumping from a crashing plane.

Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort are blown up, have a dramatic shootout, are chased by police, use hidden cameras, and, among other things, report from a war zone. But it's not only entertaining. It covers very diverse subjects such as Hollywood's influence on the world, how to reach Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses, how to know God's will for your life, and why Christianity is unique. And you'll be encouraged by insightful interviews with experts such as the late Dr. D. James Kennedy, R. C. Sproul, Joni Eareckson Tada, Ravi Zacharias, and James White.

Here's a few frequently asked questions about The Way of the Master Season 3:

What's the retail price? $99.00
How many episodes, total running time? There are 13 episodes at 27 minutes 45 seconds each--just over six hours in total
How many discs? 7 DVD discs total

Here are the titles of each episode:
· Program #27: Battle for the Lost

· Program #29: Joe Average
· Program #30: Caught in a Lie
· Program #31: The Divine Butler
· Program #32: Why Christianity?
· Program #33: Jehovah's Witness

· Program #36: Last Words of the Rich and Famous
· Program #37: How to Find God's Will
· Program #38: What Scares You?
· Program #39: Hollywood Be Thy Name

Look what an atheist has to say about one of the episodes:
"I saw the episode and I want to congratulate you on a job well done . . . you had some very powerful moments in the episode, like when that woman cried. I was moved. Good job, and I'll definitely watch the next one as well." Kaitlyn (an atheist)

Extreme Home Makeover in Keller, TX (Update)

Extreme Home Makeover was in my neck of the woods yesterday
and it turned out to be a great day on "Wretched Radio" as well.
When I arrived on the site it looked like this (first photo below).
We didn't get an interview with one of the
my friend Gigi and I got to share the Gospel with
a lot of people including two individuals (James and J.L.).
The crowd went crazy for the camera crew.
James was on Hour 1 of Wretched Radio
he has been a firefighter for two years
with the Fort Worth Fire Department.
J.L. was on Hour 2 of Wretched Radio.
Today I opened The Keller Citizen
(a local newspaper that is delivered free every
Friday to those that live in the City of Keller)
you can see a photo of the Augustin family.
This was inside the newspaper
(the owner is walking with Ty Pennington)

More to come...we have footage to show you soon.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is in Keller, TX and you know what that means...

I'm going to attempt to go over to the site tomorrow and do what I call "Extreme Makeover Evangelism". :-)

I received a couple emails from friends saying, "Trish, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is in Keller and they are helping out The Augustin family from Keller, TX and you should go phone fishing for "Wretched Radio"...

So, I took up the challenge and I'm going to go over to the construction site tomorrow for my phone fishing segment on "Wretched Radio". How could I not? It's practically happening in my back yard! I'm going to try to share the gospel with as many people as I possibly can.

But I thought I'd call the Media first to see if I could get an interview. And they gave me permission to come by and they are going to try to get me an interview with one or two of the Home Edition Team Members. Please keep this in prayer. You can tune in "live" tomorrow at

Support Living Waters this Christmas...

Baby is supporting Living Waters and you can too. It's easy, you can help Living Waters fulfill its mission to challenge, train, and equip believers to proclaim the gospel just by doing your normal online shopping through GoodShop.

I just placed an order online through GoodShop for a couple books that I've been wanting and a portion of the sale will be given to Living Waters -- and it didn't cost me anything to do this.

Here's what you can do:

1. Figure out whatever it is you want to buy
2. Go to GoodShop ( powered by
3. In the "Who do you shop for?" box. Type in "Living Waters" and make sure it is (Bellflower, CA) ID: 863011.
4. Use GoodShop to navigate back to the item you wanted to buy... and buy it.
5. Living Waters will receive a small portion of the sale... but it doesn't cost you anything extra. Thank you for supporting the ministry in this way!

Yesterday was a great day on "Wretched Radio"

Both Sierra and James were completely willing to repent and trust in the Lord. Watch this (you might have to turn the volume on the first portion up a bit) But Sierra really touched me...she said, "I think I need a new heart."

You can listen to both segments on Wretched Radio

What do you do for Christmas Cards?

This was our 2005 family Christmas photo when we lived in California...
and yes...we sent it out with Baby's tongue like that. HaHa!
2006 Christmas Photo in California (we wrapped Baby up in decor for that shot)...

This is a photo of the front portion of our Christmas Card 2007
(our first year in Texas)...we took the photo at
a friends house...Baby got left out of this one.

Here's what I typically do for my cards...I go online to the
Walmart Print Center and choose a card
(I make sure it says "Merry Christmas" and NOT "Happy Holidays"),
I then add the photo of my choice, place my order and
pick them up a few day's later. Pretty simple...
and they only cost .33 cents each.
After I pick up the cards, I type up a message to my family and friends
on my computer (which includes the gospel), print it out then
glue it on the back of the photo, like this... But this year I really haven't been in the mood.
Maybe it's because Emilio and I tried taking
a photo the other night and Baby wasn't behaving.
First, I tried to grab her but she's pretty heavy maybe over 40 lbs...

I tried to get a good grip on her leg but she doesn't
look very comfortable--wouldn't make for a good card...

She looks like she ready to make the escape on this one...poor thing. :-)

This wasn't going to make it on our Christmas cards for 08'...

On a serious note, I've sort of been debating sending cards at all this year. In a way I feel like the cards are a waste of time and money and besides...don't most people throw out their cards anyway? But then I remind myself that I look forward to receiving everyone elses cards each it gives me an opportunity to share the gospel again.

I typically like to have my Christmas Cards mailed out by now. So with all that said, I'm sort of behind on things. And I'd like to hear from you...

What do you normally do for cards?
Do you include a Gospel message? If so, what do you say?
Do you give out Christmas Cards?
