God and Sports

I grew up playing competitive sports. Baseball, basketball, track, cross country and even Taekwondo. Numerous times throughout my own experiences playing sports I prayed for help. I asked God to help me be the best athlete on given days. I asked God to bless my teams. I asked God to keep everyone healthy and safe…

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…

Rim to Rim: The Good Kind of Crazy

I have a few slogans I live by. I also call these my “I AM STATEMENTS.” One of the most important things I tell myself everyday is “I AM THE GOOD KIND OF CRAZY!” I read my I AM STATEMENTS frequently (daily is my goal). I try to put wonderful affirmations in my mind each…

Light Dimmers

I think we all have roadblocks that hold us back from being the best version of ourselves. I mean, we’re all human, so we all have struggles right? I have been thinking quite a bit about my “Light Dimmers.” These are any stumbling blocks between who I am today and the healthier spiritual, mental and…

My Favorite Part

Life is precious. I think most would agree with these words. As you can imagine, I’ve been asked quite a bit lately about my road trip. One common question- “what was your favorite part of the trip?” I think clarity comes over time, yet I from my perspective today my answer just might surprise some….

The End of My Journey with a Letter to Me

I had an idea pop into my head a few times today, so figure it’s worth exploring. I’m nearing the end of this journey and feel my last post should be a letter to myself. I left Phoenix, AZ on July 20th and am slated to arrive back this Saturday, September 7th. Many people write…

Road Trip – Reflecting after Six Weeks

Murphy and I are currently in Nashville, TN. Yeah- I’m here again, the only spot I’m staying twice on this seven week journey. I couldn’t help but stop for a night to see Vince Gill and Martina McBride perform at the Grand Ole Opery! I cannot believe how fast the trip has gone, while at…

You Can Have Your World, I’ve got Jesus!

I’m sitting on the 19th floor of the Westin at a rooftop bar overlooking the Gulf of Mexico in Sarasota, FL. I appreciate the view to say the least. I’m partially just happy to be in a more peaceful environment after spending the last three nights at a Miami Beach hotel. It’s like I transported…

Luck for Joy

I’m sitting in Miami on my 37th day of this road trip around the country. The trip is going well, the past few days have been spiritually awesome, which I’ll continue to update everyone on. The attached picture is a recent sunset off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, which was an awesome view to say…

My Antidotes for Fear

I’m over a month into my journey and I must admit that I feel more oppressed than normal. I believe the more of God’s work I’m trying to do via surrendering, the more attacks from the enemy will likely occur. We all have our weaknesses, some even bondages. In 2 Corinthians 12:9 Paul writes of…
