Witty Quote I Have Not Yet Written

Do I Write or Do I Lead?

I am a business owner. I am also a writer.

Do I spend my time writing and submitting my writing to be published?

Do I spend my time working to build a business with multiple streams of income?

I want to build buildings, invest in new technology, grow businesses, and grow as a father, husband, son of God.

But, there is so much work to do and so little time.

What do I put my energy into doing? How do I get the most out of my time?

On Organic Growth

I remember a phrase my father, Pastor Randy, often says about church growth: a growing church is a messy church, because you have baby Christians. Babies always come with diapers. It is difficult to remember now as I build businesses, work with various ministries, love my wife and children, that in many ways I am… Continue Reading

How Do We Respond to #MeToo?

How Do We Respond to #MeToo?

Not Her Have You Seen The #MeToo Campaign? After reading in the news about the Harvey Weinstein accusations, we have all borne witness to the numbers of women from all walks of life who post their #metoo stories. Or just a post. I agree with the idea to bring up discussion and hopefully help people… Continue Reading

How do You Test the Voice of God?

How do You Test the Voice of God?

Do you believe that God still speaks today to those who are listening? I believe that His Spirit is still active and engaged in our lives, and that we can quiet our hearts and minds and hear God’s still small guidance within our own mind. But, with such a bold idea and vision for hearing… Continue Reading

Here is Paul Davis Radio’s Handmaid’s Tale Review. Entertainment Review:… Continue Reading

Why I Still Think We Should Privatize Marriage

It has been 2 years since the US Supreme Court redefined marriage as between any two adults, overthrowing the rights of states to define marriage according to religious, scientific or other moral bases. Two years ago, many people, like this Politico article author thought that polygamy, polyamory, or other deviant legal structures were next on… Continue Reading

A Dance Before Glory

I was standing in a room with some 500 other men, as we all shouted, clapped our hands and stomped our feet. On stage, a performer danced a little jig to some inspirational music, the crowd went wild. This was not a performance by a famous dancer, it wasn’t a risque dance by some teenage… Continue Reading

Finding My Joy in My Suffering

I have been working through the book Joy Starts Here with my wife and some people from church. Although it is inspiring, this same time I have faced the very real fact that I am not earning enough money to provide for my family in this moment. I work, I look for work, I wait… Continue Reading

Remember

  Although I am tempted to wax rhetorical on this memorial day, the faces and persons of people I remember demand more respect than that. In the last 10 years two cousins and my best friend (and brother-in-law’s brother) have all died. While only one died in active duty with the American armed forces, I… Continue Reading
