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."

Open-Door Policy

Ron Helle / October 6, 2023


The problem with sinful men is that we think we have liberty when in fact we are in bondage to our sinful nature.

Ron Helle / September 29, 2023

The Walls Are Down

If we want to take away the reproach of the enemy, we need to come together in unity of purpose.

Ron Helle / September 22, 2023


A magnet will pull a piece of metal toward it once the metal is in closer proximity. Our burning hearts are the metal and God is the magnet.

Ron Helle / September 8, 2023

Ron Helle / September 1, 2023


As Christians, we can become separated from following King Jesus.

Ron Helle / August 25, 2023


All too often your self-worth is all about what you have accomplished or what you are doing.
