Ron Helle Bio

Ron Helle is a highly decorated career Marine officer who worked his way through the ranks, retiring as a Major after 22 years of service. If he looks familiar, that is because he is the twin brother of another Marine veteran grassroots writer, Roger Helle. Serving three years in Vietnam, Ron was awarded the Navy Cross and three Purple Hearts. Since his retirement from the Marine Corps, he has had a diverse career including private and contract security in Iraq. He has pastored two church startups, taught Scripture, and served in various ministry capacities, particularly to active-duty military personnel and veterans. His devotions emerge from his diverse life experiences. He currently resides in Houston, Texas, with his wife of more than 50 years, Lynne. Read Mark Alexander's profile of Ron, "The Heroic Helle Brothers."

The Hero and the Warrior

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” —John Adams

Much Afraid

I’ve heard it said that courage is the opposite of fear. I’m not sure I agree with that assessment. Courage is acting in spite of the fear.

Evil Eye!

It is and will be harder to maintain moral purity, but the consequences of not guarding our focus are too dangerous to ignore.

Ron Helle / November 11, 2022


What if I want to be a contagious Christian? Is there such a thing? There absolutely is.

Crackpot or Cracked Pot?

God does not “help those who help themselves” but rather those who call upon Him.

Adult Supervision Required

“These things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.”

Lean Into It

“When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

Ron Helle / October 14, 2022

Wounds of a Friend

Confrontation is never easy. But if I see my brother stumble, and I fail to come to his side, am I really showing Christian love?

Ron Helle / October 7, 2022


Through suffering I learn endurance, which produces hope. I have hope because Jesus has said that He has overcome the world.

Ron Helle / September 30, 2022


How do we as men stand against the cultural tide? Let me offer two thoughts.

Night Shift

The only thing that the enemy can use against you is what you do not bring into the light.

Ron Helle / September 16, 2022


“It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, for this is the end of all mankind and the living will lay it to heart.”

Ron Helle / September 9, 2022

Snip, Snip, Snip

I don’t want to end up a modern-day Samson — flirting with sin until I end up blinded and bound by chains.
