I just finished reading this awesome book by Patrick Lencioni entitled The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable. I happened upon this book by recommendation by someone I highly respect and who placed it in perspective with accomplishing a seven-mountain mandate. With that in mind, I took up the challenge of reading it to see how it […]

I recently completed reading John Maxwell‘s book, The 360° Leader: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization. It was such a quick read that I could not help but kick myself for not having picked it up to read sooner. I’m very familiar with the fact that this is not one of Dr. Maxwell’s most recent title, but it is still one […]

I was thoroughly refreshed recently as I completed reading Ed Silvoso’s book Ekklesia: Rediscovering God’s Instrument for Global Transformation. Up until about a couple years ago I had no idea who he was. Now, I ask myself how in the world I could have not have come across him sooner. Ed Silvoso is an Argentine born Evangelist, author and documentarian, whose focus is […]

The message is clear. 1 Peter 2:9 states that, “you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” As a people who are called out of darkness, we know the way, the truth, and the life that resides […]

It occurs to me that many people today are in the midst of a transition of one kind or another. Children may be changing to a new grade in school or changing schools entirely. Adults may be transitioning from one economic status to another, a job status to another, or moving from one city to another. […]

I was recently reflecting on the life of David. When we are first introduced to the David in the Bible he is seen as a young boy working in his father’s field doing the lowest of jobs; tending the sheep. Some people might have the opinion that David was happy to be out in the […]

In a day and age when so many people are questioning everything, now is a time for the Church to show love in a different way. If you haven’t noticed, the last couple of days have been inundated by the reports of distrust in the government to keep a lid on information and media to […]

Do you wonder about the next generation of Christians? I know I have to admit that I do. It’s been something that has been on my mind ever since I was young. I’ve always been someone who ponders about what the next generation will bring. In my most recent readings, I have been very encouraged […]

One of the toughest things about Memorial Day for many people is in remembering the family and friends of those who died in combat fighting for our freedoms. Yet, for as much as they are deserving of our remembrance, there are many who go virtually unnoticed. It’s the ones who return back from war and […]

You may find this hard to believe but many Christians are struggling with the word “Christian.” They find it hard to call themselves a Christian and it’s quite understandable in light of what I’ve read and have personally experienced as a fellow believer and follower of Christ. Personally, I believe that it is not so […]
