So What Exactly Is This Thing I’m Doing Here?

The simple answer is: I don’t know!

First things first… a little background about me. Not too long ago, I had a job that I loved more than anything. I think that was part of the reason I stand here today… baffled. It was more than a job. It was a calling; a mission. I was good at it! People loved me! I was a kids and youth pastor for 12 years. I put it before everything, even God himself! …

Some Suggestions About Criticism

One of the biggest problems I have seen that has an impact on people’s communication skills and the experiences that they have with others is their ability to criticize much, while keeping praises and complements to a minimum.  In my experience, what has strengthened many of my relationships is my ability to give out more compliments than criticisms.  I try to find genuine reasons to give a compliment.  Most people will know if you are making things up.  It is usually much easier to find what is wrong with a person and how they do things differently from you, than it is to see the positives and similarities.    

My Experience With Success

As we begin our journey, I would like to share with you my personal experiences with success as the world and popular society defines it and what I have come to know as true, lasting and real success.  My journey began, like everyone else, as a child.  It’s when we are young and impressionable that our beliefs, attitudes and behaviors are formed.  They affect the rest of our lives, and for many people, it is never realized that they may develop these characteristics in an atmosphere that isn’t or wasn’t supportive of real success. 

Why, Then How

Let God fill your heart with the why.

Then he will show you the how.

When this is done, the impossible becomes effortless.

A Brief Economics Lesson

Economics is defined, by dictionary.com, as the science that deals with the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services, or the material welfare of humankind. 

Another way of defining economics is that it is the effective use of scarce resources.  I believe and know that, although some resources may be scarce, the money needed to purchase these resources is not in short supply. 

Selfish or Selfless

God does not bless self-centered ambition. It doesn’t matter what you learned in church. Your pastor got it wrong.

He DOES bless selfless obedience! Stop living for yourself behind a hidden agenda of “doing the Lords work.”

You’re not fooling anyone.

God Not Government

If there is anything the past few years has taught me, it is the importance of being prepared.

Since 2018 my family has experienced several blizzards, a micro-burst and other severe weather related events. These situations have caused disruptions in our everyday lives; in many cases for at least a week or more. We have weathered each storm and have learned many lessons. It’s important to learn from each event. What did you do right? What did you do wrong?
