Be Strong Enough

Why are we tearing each other apart over political differences?

All of us have beliefs and convictions. It’s not a threat to allow others to challenge us. Living in an echo chamber, aligning yourself only with those who agree with you is dangerous and limits open-mindedness. Be confident. Be strong enough to accept others where they are…

My Interview With Vic Feazell, Part 1

Vic Feazell was the District Attorney in McClennan County when he received a call from the renowned Texas Rangers.

Recognize our differences, even within our own families. Embrace the differences and unify. We are better together…

Why?

Listening…

Nowadays we try to be the loudest voice rather than be an active listener. Listening takes effort; it’s real work rather than merely hearing someone. Listening is a deeper understanding, and it is where bridge building begins. Actively listening to others doesn’t come naturally, and it’s exhausting. But when we put in the effort, the quality of our conversations grows while our worldview expands…
