From Busy to Reverence

From Busy to Reverence

How to Move From Busy to Reverence when anyone asks, “Hey, are you busy right now?”

Oh. Wow. How should I respond to that?

Many things occupy our attention and can distract us from what is most important – taking care of the people we serve. In addition to serving my family, I currently serve as a Chaplain at a hospital. One of their Core Values is Reverence – “We honor the sacredness and dignity of every person.” How can we move from busy to reverence?

Practicing Biblical Stewardship

Practicing Biblical Stewardship

“‘Well done, good and faithful servant… Come and share your master’s happiness!” (Matt 25:21 NIV) What’s in the middle of that verse? You know, the ellipsis (…)?

To be honest, I don’t want to be “that guy” who became so lethargic and out of shape that I’m no longer fruitful and effective for the Kingdom of God.

Compelled to Create

Compelled to Create

Compelled to Create?

Yes, I said compelled to create. I am compelled to create. I agree with Jeff Goins in this very thought-exploding statement. I grew up very musical. I even attended San Diego State University for a year so I could study Vocal Performance in Opera. I loved every music class. That strenuous training prepared me to take the stage as a speaker as well as a singer.
