16 June 2017

0 Comments

I stepped on a scale in April and it was bad.  I’d never seen those combination of numbers together on a scale I was standing on.  I’d already been at my heaviest weight ever, but this was out of control.  A full 30 pounds over where I like to be, and not of muscle.  30 […]

Misfits by Matthew Barnett

16 July 2015

0 Comments

I have to say, I am incredibly biased when reviewing this book because I have been to the LA Dream Center, I have seen the impact of changed lives, and so I drink the Matthew Barnett kool-aid. There are plenty of Misfits to be found walking the streets of LA, and also working at the […]

I got offered to write a weekly column for the newspaper and it reminded me I used to write a blog.  Oops!  Turns out, being a good husband, spending time with my kids, planting a church, being the VP of the elementary school PTC and hosting the community garden for the city is a tad […]

God is incredibly powerful. God also loves us indescribably. Those are the two basic premises of this book, Yawning at Tigers. Society has lost its way when it comes to the creator of all things. The majesty has left, the reverence has left, and the awestruck amazing God isn’t given His due. Society has done […]

7 August 2014

I received this book for free from the book look blogger program. Sometimes the books I get are duds, sometimes the books I get are great. This one is great. There are tons of books on leadership available, and I’ve read a ton of them. Most things are getting pretty redundant. “Avoiding the Pitfalls of […]
