Know Your God

  … But the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.  Daniel 11:32 We all want to do great things and make our lives count!  But, what is the foundation of our lives?  It is knowing God.  The “great exploits” overflow from relationship with God.  Not the other way […]

51: Podcast Show Update 3 – Pursuing Less but Better

Sometimes less is more. As a driven “type A” personality… this is hard for me to admit.  However, over time I am learning how to give myself time and space to think.  Every time I take time to evaluate my life I realize that there are ways I can do less, do it better and […]

You Can't Manage Time!

I know you want your life to count and make an impact for the Kingdom of God! Therefore, how you use your time matters.  We all have the same amount of time in every day.  Over the course of our lives, we don’t know exactly how much time we will have, and once we waste […]
