Peace, Happiness and Contentment

Almost four years ago I was left feeling empty after years of “success.” I couldn’t muster up the ability to write down any goals, only three words: Peace, Happiness and Contentment. Little did I know this was a pivotal moment in my life, as I entered my “Jesus Year.” I’m excited to say I can write down goals for the first time after a transformative few years of life!

Tis the Season

I believe I was in 5th grade. My mom went so overboard for Christmas that year I actually still remember it. When you’re a kid, Christmas is mostly about getting presents. This particular year was full of surprises. I was at the age when sports were really starting to be a main focal point. I…

Speeding Through a Parking Lot

A lady sped up instead of letting me cross in a parking lot. I let this upset me, but why? Expectations of others to treat me like I would treat them. Why would I let someone else dim my light because they aren’t treating me as I would them? Check out my perspective on this new post: Speeding Through a Parking Lot

Shedding

I’ve mentioned SHEDDING in a few posts recently. I feel like it deserves ample focus as I continue to experience different versions of the word. What am I SHEDDING though? The first thing I think of when I hear the word SHEDDING is how my dog Murphy leaves more hair around my house than is…

Fearfully, yet Faithfully Forward

So we ran the Classic Tough Mudder on Saturday. Unfortunately, as many of you know, I came down with either food poisoning or the flu early Friday morning. Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling up to running nearly 10 miles coupled with 25 obstacles by Saturday morning. I debated heavily and almost decided not to…

Show up READY!

We need to train for our relationships, like we do for so many other things in life! Training for the Tough Mudder got me thinking about training for romance!

Thanksgiving: Then and Now

When I was younger I didn’t realize what Thanksgiving really meant. I was taught as a young boy the importance of saying “thank you” when someone did something nice for me. Proper manners never escaped me growing up with my father. He made sure I realized the importance of showing proper respect and courtesy, especially…

Mind Held Hostage

What an amazing day! I am always so pumped when November comes along, as I’m a sucker for the holiday season (LOVE IT)! Crazy to think Thanksgiving is already next week! Looking at local stores, you’d think we’ve been in the holiday season for over a month now given the plethora of Christmas decorations available…

Hard to Smile

We just got back from our trip to Atlanta to see Luke Combs and Eric Church. We had a great time and the show was excellent! We made a little mini vacay out of the trip by making it a long weekend (Friday-Monday). While riding on the airport tram a thought crossed my mind as…

Declines and Inclines

I’m writing from “Hotlanta” Georgia! We’re here for the Luke Combs and Eric Church charity concert at Mercedes Benz Stadium on Sunday night. We’re just strolling around The Battery area today, perhaps even getting a little Christmas shopping done. No plan, just a quick little escape exploring a new town before the concert! I’ve been…
