How much can you REALLY do?

advance Jan 31, 2017

Everybody can juggle 1 ball.  I know- that's not technically a "juggle." Just bear with me...

Most people can juggle 2.

Some people can handle 3.

A few can deal with 4.

That's just the way it is. Some of us can handle more than others.

In our day, it's become en vogue to handle more- to...

What do you choose to see?

advance Jan 24, 2017

Most of the the time we see what we want to see. In the book Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior (now, think about that title!), Ori & Rom Brafman write about the effects of pre-existing beliefs and how they effect our ongoing belief patterns- even when confronted with new...

Prosper in everything

Somewhere, we bought the line that poverty is noble, that sickness is a blessing, and that Heaven is when things really start happening in our favor. Yet, a quick look at the Father of our faith shows us something radically different...

In fact, Paul writes that one of the reasons Christ...

Build your bridge

advance the ladder Jan 10, 2017

Every bridge breaks down to one piece of wood. If you know WHERE you want that bridge to go, you can build that bridge anywhere as long as you build it once piece at a time. 

A few years ago we renovated our house. We bought an old, old house (as in "1903" old- it had already seen more than...

Begin where you are

advance the ladder Jan 03, 2017

 

You can go anywhere you want to go- if you FIRST admit where you are. We know it's true. That's how we find out how to get to the coffee shop (like the example in the video above). It's how we take vacations. It's how we change jobs, move houses, and even select our classes in school.

Who's on the bus?

advance the ladder who Dec 27, 2016

In our task-driven, production-oriented culture, we often look at WHAT we want to do, first. However, the greatest thing is not WHAT we do or even HOW we do it... it's the WHO, the people you ride with.

When you get that in order, everything else seems to take care of itself :-)

The Imago Dei in you

advance the ladder who Dec 20, 2016

 

When I was in college, finding "The Will of God" was the buzz phrase of the moment. It seems every few years the Church-as-a-whole cycles through a new trend-

* Like contemporary music vs. hymns

* Doing church "campuses" online

* Social justice

Now, don't misread me. None of these issues...

Paper Plane

advance the ladder who Dec 13, 2016

I participated in this exercise at a leadership workshop one afternoon in which the facilitator lined us against the back wall of the room, asked us to make a paper plane, and then had us toss them one-by-one, launching them across the room.

Predictably...

The Right People

advance the ladder Dec 06, 2016

If you're a "task-driven" person (I've been told I'm one of them),  this one might zoom right past you. Literally. It's driven by me for years. In fact, I'm just now starting to "get it."

Let me back up.

A few years ago I read where John Maxwell wrote something like, "If you want to go fast...

What you need + What they teach = Result

- Andy Jenkins

 

 

I see people falling into two extreme camps when it comes to using essential oils:

One group thinks you’ve got to have the precise oil that matches the body system you’re to support or the symptom you’re wanting to address. So, this group spends...
