My Mom is a Positive Voice in a Negative World

I’ve always had fun teasing my Mom with all her quirks and “Momisms”. She always rolled with it because she did not take herself too serious. One thing I appreciated about Mom was her desire to always have a laugh. She has spent her life championing others that needed a someone to advocate for them. She would […]

Fear and Tithing

I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. Was I disobeying or obeying God?  If I did not tithe to my local church and gave to “another ministry”, would Satan wreak havoc on my finances. Cars would break. Unexpected Medical expenses would occur. Unknown taxes and expenses out of nowhere would occur.  Malachi 3:10-11 […]

Everyone Wins!

The kingdom of God is not a zero sum game. Yet I tell myself, “If I give, I will have less. I need to keep what I have and not lose it.” When life is defined by that kind of math, I make decisions out of a fear. I fear that I will lose what […]

1 Second of Fame

1 second of fame is all you get today. It used to be you would get 15 seconds of fame. But not any more. The 1000 or 10000 likes will amount to 1 second of attention someone gave you while they scroll through their feed. God did not design us to be satisfied with 1 second of […]

One of them was last week with my band of brothers. You can meet them in the Band of Brothers Part 1 & Part 2 podcasts. Mens […]

Time is a Gift

I’ve had a terrible relationship with time. As long as I can remember, I’ve been at odds with time. Time was my enemy not my friend. I was always running out of time. I was always late. I was supposed to arrive at some place in my life, some level of stability, skill, success, title, […]

The cost of playing it safe

I was standing in Martin Niemöller cell in the Sachsenhausen Concentration camp. Niemöller was “reasonable” and took the wide road of conformity and compromise not willing to becoming a lightning rod on the issues of his time (1938-1945).  He was bothered by Nazis and did some to right the wrong but was NOT willing to […]

Get Up!

I did not want to get up. I could hear my trainer from the corner of the ring yelling in slow motion Get Up! I lost count of the several rounds I had gone at this point. My face was flat on the mat. My mouth guard hanging out of my mouth, drool. I thought. “I can’t […]
