The Problem With Men Is…

I was told recently that men, (not, man, as in mankind but men as in men) have a tendency to only do the minimum required of them. I don’t know how much I agree with that statement but I do know that I have a tendency of doing whatever I can to get what I want […]

Religious Myths That Keep You From God

People believe all sorts of silly things. When it comes to religion our beliefs go by another term: theology. Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about theology. Mostly because I’m getting ready to send this month’s newsletter to the printers and it’s all about a cornerstone of theology, what God thinks when He looks at […]

We Have A New President

So I’m busy watching the presidential inauguration this morning and whether or not you like Trump you have to admit, if he can pull off half of what he just said he wants to… it’s going to be a good 4 years. I’m doubting he’ll be able to make this country all sunshine and roses […]

Not Another New Years Email!

It’s New Years Day – and we’ve just started 2017. And the last thing you need is yet another email talking about goals. Or resolutions. So I won’t give that to you. Here’s what I’ll tell you as the New Year begins. You are good enough. Past sins, guilt, shame… Blah, blah, blah. None of […]

Better Than A Resolution

With the weekend coming up and the new year just around the corner it’s time to begin evaluating my life and my goals. I’m going to be shaking things up a bit this year and instead of setting resolutions or even goals I’m going to be taking a different approach. Usually, I’ll set my resolutions […]

What Scares You?

Tonight is the third night of Hanukkah and I’m pretty excited to see what present my wife picks. I’ll be honest with you I don’t remember what I packed into what box… it’s just as much of a surprise to me as it is to her. It’s like I get the excitement of opening 2 […]

Covered In Grace

Today I’ll be starting a new job. It’s not something I was looking for, it’s something that just sort of fell into my lap. Why did that happen? Why does that always happen? Because my heavenly father is looking out for me. This may or may not be a long term thing but either way, […]

Don’t Eat That

Last night I had some leftover Chinese food. I had already finished dinner and just wanted a little snack… boy did I regret that decision. I had a low-grade headache for about 30 minutes after eating the cheap, MSG-laden, greasy, plate of noodles and beef. I was planning on having the rest of it for lunch […]

We Need You

Yesterday I was super productive in the morning but by the time the afternoon rolled around I was done. I’d like to blame it on my lack of sleep the night before and Vanessa’s new work schedule throwing me off but I think it had more to do with a complete lack of motivation. How can […]

Lack Of Time Or Lack Of Priorities

When we were living in San Jose things were crazy… we were living in a tiny 1 bedroom apartment while I worked full time and Vanessa worked 2 jobs just to pay the bills. We were both busy as could be, never saw each other and our stress levels were going up every day. In […]
