Something I hear from students and young adults constantly is that they want to know what God says about them. There are approximately 7.4 billion people in the entire world. “Why would God care about me?” That is a common question I get and something that breaks my heart. God knows, loves, and cares for…Read More Why Would God Care About Me?
We’re all wired to want something more than the mundane, just-getting-by life the world offers us. Being average, settling for “good enough”, accepting a message that wasn’t written in the language that sets our souls on fire isn’t what we were made for… You were designed by the greatest architect. You were created with divine […]Read More Take the Leap
Lead by example – a phrase we’ve all heard at least once. Every solid leader, manager, supervisor, boss, parent, authority figure worth their title embraces this philosophy. Teach your followers, team members, employees, children, etc to do by watching you do first. With that in mind, if you are in any sort of position of […]Read More Is Your Leader Generous or Selfish?
Back in 2010, I put out this challenge to help us all grow, not backslide (our walk is like a down escalator, if we’re not actively walking up, we’re moving down). Since that was a while back, and we once again feel our spiritual edge dulling, I thought I’d repost it today with some updates. […]Read More One for One Challenge 2014
Headed home today with mixed emotions. Can’t wait to see Angie & Zach, but I’ll miss Ken and his family as well as Joseph, Paul and their family. Here’s some more pictures from the trip. Joseph & Shelly Ryan pretending to be asleep in Church. Sharon from S.T.E.M. and Ken D. Everyone saying goodbye to […]Read More On a Mission – Day Eight
Sat and talked to Ken W for a bit this morning and got some great wisdom. He explained the difference between a tithe and an offering, something many (including myself until this conversation) don’t seem to grasp. When God commands us to tithe, it’s not just our money, but our time and talents. Additionally, the […]Read More On A Mission – Day Seven
“Slept in” till 5am today. Had a nice breakfast and headed back to Paul’s house. I finished the kitchen cabinets and then Peter taught me how to install door frame moldings, while the ladies installed door stops and finished the painting. It’s amazing to see how a group of women who admitted no knowledge of […]Read More On A Mission – Day Six
Ignition Woke up early again today to read my bible and the What In The World… book. We’re heading out earlier today as we have a short work day so we can go to church tonight. I prayed that God would get me past the frustrations of the previous days and while He put many […]Read More On A Mission – Day Five
Servant of the Day Woke up early again today to read my bible and “What In the World…” Ryan, Stefani and I were on Servant of the Day duty, so we helped prepare breakfast (although Sharon did most of the work) then we cleared the tables and did the dishes. We arrived at the job […]Read More On A Mission – Day Four
Woke up at 4am today and headed into the dining hall to read my bible and “What In The World Is Going On?” by Dr. David Jeremiah. Feeling somewhat lonely without Angie & Zach around, even though I’m surrounded by good people. Had a good breakfast of scrambled eggs & sausage, then a good prayer […]Read More On A Mission – Day Three
