Religion

I don’t believe in organized religion. Religion has been used to hurt people. Personally, I follow Jesus and try to live up to the example He set for us. Jesus was a radical, saying things like “love your enemies,” and “pray for those who persecute you.” One thing He didn’t do was bring the world more religion. He showed us the true character of God.

Religion will continue. The rules of religion (no drinking or dancing etc) will remain. I simply study the life of the One who redeemed and restored hurting people…

Broken…

When a car breaks down, we get it repaired. Why don’t we fix ourselves?

All of us are broken in some way. Our lives might look good, even perfect on social media, but we hide our true selves. All of us have past hurts, pain, unresolved issues and great memories. This makes us who we are.

We can fix our emotional brokenness through self-work. People avoid this kind of work because it’s hard to really look at yourself, your flaws and patterns which don’t serve you well. But doing the hard work on yourself is so worthwhile. Take the first brave step to freedom. And keep going…

From The Inside…

If you believe everything you see on social media, you might think that everyone’s life is perfect. It’s not. We show people the outside, not the pain, the hurts, struggles and worries of life. Remember this when interacting with others. We don’t know what’s going on inside…

Victimhood…

No one is a victim in the sense that someone else is keeping them from succeeding. Yes, bad things happen to us, but the bad stuff only prevents us from being successful and impactful if we allow it. The battle is in our minds. If you have a good mind and can think…you can do. It’s easier to blame than to do…

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. The Rangers had a man in custody who had confessed to three murders in Vic’s jurisdiction, and they wondered if Vic wanted to have his picture taken with the Rangers when they closed out the cases? When you are a politician whose political stock was on the rise, of course you say yes to The Rangers. Only problem was, the man who confessed to the Rangers had not committed the murders. When Vic got suspicious, all hell broke loose.
On December 6, 2019, “The Confession Killer” was released on Netflix as a five-part documentary. Listen to one of the key players from the documentary. Click on the link to watch…

Remember Me?

In 2018, my first book was published. The book is called, “Killing My Father Then Finding Him.” The theme of the book is about how I came to forgive both of my parents for the abuse and neglect I felt all through my childhood. I hid my upbringing from my friends in school. I masked it well because recently I read a short piece one of my childhood friends wrote about me and why he was buying the book. He wrote, “what I remember about John was his passion for life and his genuine concern for others.”


If you are holding onto pain from your past, I encourage you to do the work on yourself to heal. I did, and I promise it isn’t easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is.

The Power Within…

In my book, “Killing My Father Then Finding Him,” I wrote about the power of forgiveness. True forgiveness frees you from anger, bitterness and resentment. It takes time and it takes courage to forgive. It takes those same qualities to face your fears. You have the power within yourself to accomplish anything you want to. All it takes is one brave step…
