• Is the American School System Broken?

    I love Seth Godin’s response to this question. Take a look:


  • Do You Ever Feel Thwarted?

    Sometimes it feels like God Himself has opposed us and our efforts to succeed. The stars seemed aligned for breakthrough and suddenly catastrophe strikes. Hearbreak disrupts. Hope is lost. There’s are times I feel thwarted and it angers me to the core. The injustice of my good intentions falling apart before execution is too much […]

  • Death to Self is Hard, But Delicious

    I’m here to tell you that dying to self is not all bad. The weeks, months, and years leading up to it can be pretty rough, but the actual experience of dying to self is more a mixture of pain and pleasure.
