  • Last week I spent a couple of blog entries talking about the value of intentionally, diligently establishing healthy thought patterns. At the conclusion of this entry you can hit the links to read those pieces. “Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.” This is a Divine commandment. Sabbath

  • Let’s start with a moment of transparency. On the extrovert / introvert scale I trend toward introvert. If you knew me when I was younger, or If you watch me from afar, you may find that a little surprising. As a part of my function and assignment, I am outwardly expressive, and I am comfortable

  • I referenced in a blog I wrote yesterday, that rather than setting goals, I prefer to diligently cultivate specific thought patterns. You can read my reasoning HERE. A couple of reasons I value a well cultivated thought process over a well thought out goal is my belief that “accomplishment”

  • January 2020 was but a vapor, and now we continue into February. How are you doing on those New Year Resolutions? Before you hang your head in shame, or lift your chin in pride, I am offering neither a rebuke nor a well done. Rather, now that the newness of 2020 has dissipated, now that the grind of the

  • The subject of money is a touchy one, especially in church. Let me go on record that I have absolutely no problem or hesitance talking about money and the life of a believer.

  • I want to get this out of the way in the beginning… I like winning. I like succeeding. I like accomplishing. I like achieving goals. I like surpassing expectations. It is perfectly acceptable to enjoy all of the above. As a matter of fact, I believe when we apply Kingdom principles to our everyday life,
