March 7, 1997: Mile-Marker

Twenty four years ago today, my little 6-year-old world came crashing down on what should have just been a normal Friday of first grade and playing with my friends. Our neighbor across the street was also one of my best friends. His mom would pick me up and let me play at their house onContinue reading “March 7, 1997: Mile-Marker”

Two Years: Pressure = Diamonds

Two years ago today, life was normal. And then two years ago tomorrow happened. I put a lot of stock in dates. I remember the first time I ever stepped into my church, the date I got my real estate license, the day my dad fell out of the sky, the day of my near-fatalContinue reading “Two Years: Pressure = Diamonds”

You are essential to THE story.

Growing up, I struggled with the belief that God messed up with me. Some days, I honestly believed that God had a factory in Heaven with ideas for new babies and I somehow slipped past quality control. Like if He had noticed me before it was too late, He would have tossed me out withContinue reading “You are essential to THE story.”

Avoid regret by standing your ground with lions

Male lions roar something fierce. They are loud and terrifying when they are on the hunt. Do you know what is more ferocious than a male lion? A lioness. The way the lions survive is they enclose their prey. When the prey hear the roar of the male, they will turn to run in fearContinue reading “Avoid regret by standing your ground with lions”

Confidence is a smart soldier.

“As a confidence coach, what would you say to yourself right now if this version of you were your client?” My therapist asked a great question a few weeks ago when I was riding the wave right out of confidence into arrogance. Two days later, I was getting pulled under. That’s when you know it’sContinue reading “Confidence is a smart soldier.”

Going deeper into confidence

I talk about confidence a lot, which is good since I call myself a confidence coach. But what if we went a little deeper? Would that be okay with you? Let’s start with what confidence is NOT. It is NOT arrogance, self-centeredness, ego, pride or being a jerk. The world tells us having confidence isContinue reading “Going deeper into confidence”

Know what (WHO) you’re FOR

I am for people – and I am for them one at a time. It’s really that simple.

COVID-19 and Confidence

Just in case you weren’t aware, the news of Coronavirus is taking over the world. Nobody who is alive today has ever seen anything like what we are experiencing as the human race right now.

All I want is all you’ve got.

In John 2, Jesus asked servants to fill water pots at a wedding that was out of wine. They filled six water pots up with water TO THE BRIM. Once they were finished, He turned their water into the finest wine of the day. God has consecrated this idea in my heart lately. It’s easyContinue reading “All I want is all you’ve got.”
