My Great Reads from 2016

At the start of 2016 I had a great plan to read more books than I have before in one year. It is true leaders are readers. However, being a bi-vocational pastor it is tough to find long blocks of time read and I have a bad habit of reading more than one book at […]

Average is pretty safe….” – Andy Traub I am not sure when it happens. We most often start life seeing every new day as a grand adventure. Around every corner lies something […]

The Early to Rise Experience – A Book Review

I have never been a morning person. I have never even been close to being a morning person.  I could sleep ten hours and still getting up would be a pain. However, I need to get up early. I need the discipline and I need the quiet early hours to study God’s Word, to pray […]

Did You Show UP Today?

The older I get the more I realize that time is fleeting. We never know what tomorrow holds or if for us, will it ever come. Much is taught about vision and dreams for the future and I have blogged on it myself. However, if we are not careful, our dreams for the future can […]

Cultivating Leadership

Titles and Position will only carry your leadership so far. People often follow those with titles because they have too. In reality they are driven or pushed forward not lead. True leadership is when people follow out of their own free will. This type of leadership does not just happen; it will require hard work […]

Be More than a Dreamer

I may be 51 but I am a really big kid. For the past two years we have gone to Disney World for our family vacation (our third time since 2012). And who knows, we may go again this year. I love every single magical moment. Also, I am intrigued by how they make it […]

Focus – My One Word for 2016

Last year was the first year I chose a single word to define my year. Last year’s word was “Generous.” Yes I will still be generous this year; however, for this year my word will be “Focus.” I always say that I am a slow learner but as I have crossed over into my second […]
