Have We Lost the Pioneer Spirit?

Yesterday the United States of America celebrated our 241st birthday.  As s self-proclaimed history nerd (I know a little about a lot) it is a day I always enjoy not just as an American but I enjoy the history behind the day. By choice I had no exciting plans other than to spend a lazy […]

Live your life Proactive And Intentional

Proactive and Intentional are two of my favorite words. I often wonder why they are my favorite since I am prone to be anything but proactive and intentional.

The Early to Rise Experience – A Book Review

Do Nothing But…

Too often we seem to just drift through life letting each moment come and go as it will. Before we know it ten thousand moments have flown by and we are no different (or perhaps worse off). God did not create us to drift through life. But with his leading we live proactive and intentional.  […]
