A podcast exploring faith and imagination . . . from Pilgrim's Progress to Star Trek, Superman to LOTR, Star Wars to Narnia:
Ben, Steve, and Dr. Jayce look at the nexus between imaginative fiction and the human condition. They talk about God, the human journey to understand their faith through stories, and whether or not Kirk is better than Picard.
If you have time check out a podcast that Ben Avery and I co-host! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO FRIENDS AND FAMILIES!: http://strangersandaliens.com/

A few Weeks ago I was asked to present a spoken word (a poem or writing of some sort spoken out loud to an audience). For a few days before I had tried to come up with something, but it didn't seem to be quite right. Finally, at the very last moment I got inspired. I wrote it and then spoke it and it seemed to hit a chord with the audience. Dr. Linda Mintle who is an author and friend asked permission to post it for her website. I said yes. You can read that piece on her blog here:

The Road Taken (The Road Most Traveled)
by Jayce O’Neal
3-18-04, 2004 (c)
Is this the best thing to do?
Is there where I should be?
A million choices to sort through
Mountains of decisions blind me
If I choose this, what will it mean?
Options mount, but what, when, and where?
So many variables that can’t be foreseen
Discombobulated, am I here or there?
Playing it safe may not be grand
But taking a risk leaves too much unclear
I’ve sentenced my life to an unliving bland
I foolishly say, maybe next year
Immobilized to move because I do fear
The unknown, the hidden, anything I can’t see
So instead I stay frozen-keeping fear so near
Subscribing my life to mediocrity

It has been a while since my last blog post and the reason is because we have been swamped!!!!
We have had some exciting things happen these past few months. Here is a bullet point update to give you a broad overview:
- I have a new book coming out soon and I'll release more info on that in the near future. This will be my fourth book, so I am looking forward to it. This book is being translated into another language as well, so that is going to be super cool. More info soon to come!!!
- Erica and I have our last episode of the mini web series we started a while back. To see that video click: HERE.
- FINALLY, Erica and I have accepted a position at Open Door Chapel in Virginia Beach as the lead pastors! This church was a leading church for many years in the area and the congregation felt that they needed some new life and asked us to come in to revitalize the church. We are both so excited to help these lovely people and see how we can come along and serve with them. Pastor Dan and the New Life community have been wonderful in helping us in this new endeavor. We will be sending out more updates on this as our journey progresses!
We look forward to this next stage of life, so please keep us in your prayers and write back to us I love hearing from you all!

Don't forget to be thankful for what we do have. Much of the year it is easy to think of the things we might not have. We spend so much time on what we desire and not nearly as much time as we should on what we already are blessed with. However, Thanksgiving is that time of year that makes us sit down and appreciate the little things. Here is my list of things I am thankful for:
- Amazing Wife
- Loving friends & family
- a healthy church
- a job
- a roof over my head
- a lovely neighborhood
- quality neighbors
- fulfilled dreams
- more dreams to chase
- fall leaves
- brisk breeze
- changing of seasons
- things to look forward to
- farside comics
- Where the Sidewalk Ends
- peanut butter pie
- ice cream
- a bed to rest
- a desk to work
- new ideas
- and so much more....what are some things you're thankful for?

The past couple months have been a whirlwind! So many things have been going on so I wanted to update those of you who follow our happenings and such. So here is a quick run down...
On the Road Again
Erica and I have relocated back to Virginia Beach where we met and got married. We had a lot of doors open up but they were all east of Nashville, so we figured if all things were equal that we’d rather be in a place that felt like home with lots of friends and family and an awesome church. The fact that the economy and film industry in LA had really slowed also helped make up our minds. Just a few days after we got back on the east coast we started getting auditions as though we had never left.
The Book Release
My new book “No Girls Allowed” released this week! You can show your support by telling your friends about it and BUYING the book!!! See the Book here
Tyndale House is one of the largest trade publishers in America and they were great to work with. They have a story about me on their website, so check it out and you might learn something about me that you might not have known. Also, you get a sneak peak of a future project I have been working on as well: See Tyndale Story here
Dr. J aka Rappin Jayce
During a radio interview for my book the DJ created a “Jayce Rap”. It is likely the only time you will hear me rap so check it out: Listen to rap here
