Fear of Missing Out…

People will make emotional decisions when they feel like they might miss out on something. I encourage you to use wisdom and discernment when faced with big decisions. Pray about them, and listen for the voice of our Creator to guide you…

Gratitude…

There is always something to be grateful for. Think about your heartbeat, fresh air to breathe and food in your refrigerator. Focus on what you have, not what you lack…

Toxins…

We protect our children from poisonous cleaning supplies by restricting access to the cabinets in our homes. Why do we allow toxic people into our lives? Restrict their access to you. They will remain as they are, yet you will be better…

Speaking of Kindness…

The tongue is a laser sharp instrument. It can heal or it can hurt. Your choice, but I encourage you to return kind words to others, not stinging rebukes. Both of you will benefit…

Speak!

There is much goodness in the world, but there are injustices as well. Speak up for what is good, right and noble. Speak out against injustice. Those who feel like they don’t have a voice need us to stand up for them…

Our Future…

Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders. We are failing them. In 2016, suicide became the #2 killer of kids. In 2020 a study revealed that 78% of students felt lonely. It’s ironic that so many kids could feel lonely. We live in the most technologically connected culture ever.

We must turn this around, and fast. It begins with us…

Inside/Out

All across society, we see people who are trying to find themselves through external means. I’ve done it myself, which I discussed in my book, “Killing My Father Then Finding Him.” Here’s some truth: we find our value when we realize God created us exactly how He wanted us to be. Accept that truth and you will accept yourself…

Expectations…

We live in a world where comparison reigns. Do your best and eliminate comparison from your mindset. Do not allow or accept the expectations of the world.
