Acceptance…

In my book, “Killing My Father Then Finding Him” I wrote about the fractured relationship I had with both my parents. They were cruel and abusive, and I never felt like I was good enough. This carried into adulthood. After many years of hard, self-work I was able to rid myself of the need for the approval of others. If you are dealing with this, I encourage you to work on yourself. It isn’t easy, but it will free you from the demons inside your head. You will be free…

Columbine High School…

“I have this theory that if one person goes out of their way to show compassion, it will start a chain reaction of the same. You never know how far a little kindness will go.” – Rachel Joy Scott

Today is the 22nd anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre. Rachel was the first child killed that day. Yet, even with all the darkness of that day, it couldn’t stop light from emerging. Rachel’s Challenge was born, based upon the writings and influence of Rachel Scott. She continues to start chain reactions of kindness and compassion all across the world. Over 30 million people have experienced Rachel’s story. But the work continues…
Rest In Peace, Rachel. Your life mattered…

What Matters Most…

Are you trying to be the busiest person around? After all, our culture believes that high activity is the honorable way. Do not fall into the trap of being too busy for the important things: family, friends and your health.

Help!

Why is it so hard to ask for help? Arrogance and pride keep us from doing so. When little children ask for help we are quick to respond. The children have no ego invested, they simply want to accomplish something. Let’s let go of our false pride and collaborate when necessary…

Our Personal IP Address

Since the beginning of our personal awareness, we realized we were here for something greater than our possessions or our position in life. We are on a search for our identity, who we are, and our purpose for living. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I encourage you to keep going…

Judge and Jury…

Every day, people spend unnecessary time and energy judging others. We want people to be more like us, to live their lives as we do. Yet, we are not the ones with authority. Let’s leave the judgment to God, and spend our time encouraging others, leading them in the light…
