Spreading Kindness And Compassion In A World In Desperate Need Of It…

Twenty years ago, the worst school shooting in history (at that time) occurred at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. Who could foresee the good that would come from this tragic event? Rachel Joy Scott was the first person killed that day. Her life, her writings, and her legacy lives on through Rachel’s Challenge, the largest organization in the world which focuses on kindness and compassion. Rachel’s story has reached and impacted millions of people across our planet. I’m humbled and grateful to serve on the board for this wonderful organization. God truly can create good from evil…

Seek Purpose…

The 17th century French philosopher Blaise Pascal wrote about a “God-shaped vacuum” inside the hearts of everyone. What are you filling it with? More stuff? A greater position? Power? If you are trying to find your purpose in those things, you will be in a never ending search. Seek to find your God-given purpose. There you will find fulfillment…#heart #connection #drive #desire #purpose #fulfillment

Hope…

When they regain their freedom, they return home to abuse, alcoholism, drug abuse and worse. I share my life story with them, and in a short time the skin color difference, the age difference, it just melts away. They see me as one of them. Today is one of those days!

Change…

Change can be easy to accomplish, or it can seem insurmountable. The battleground is our mind. Take control of your thoughts. Thoughts lead to action. If you want something in your life to change, you must be willing to go through some discomfort. Just begin…#heart #drive #desire #change #purpose #encourageothers

Words…

A scalpel in the hands of a skilled surgeon can be used for healing. A switchblade held by a thug can do great harm. All of us possess an instrument which can heal or harm others. It’s called our tongue. What kind of words are you using? Words of restoration or judgment? Words of encouragement or are you putting others down? Let’s think before we speak. Something to consider…#heart #connection #drive #desire #words #purpose #encourageothers
