Permission to be a Gold Digger

Recently while away on a trip I had the opportunity to meet some new people along the way. Matt was in another group as I took time and chatted with a woman on the other side of the room. By the time the night was over, we were recapping the day's events, in which Matt … Continue reading Permission to be a Gold Digger

There is MORE

This past weekend I was very honored when Pastors Todd and Mary asked me to preach about living a life of abundance. Which is ironic because growing up, I always felt like God wanted me to suffer to an extent. One reason why was because my definition of abundance was skewed. Living in abundance is … Continue reading There is MORE

I Want What I Want

Kids can be ruthless sometimes. Back in my high school days I used to babysit this 5 year old boy. He wasn’t so bad to watch but sometimes he would have the worst tantrums (like kicking-me-in-the-face tantrums). I remember he used to love to play this spy video game and he would get so mad … Continue reading I Want What I Want

Unusual Kindness

Let's talk about something simple/complicated.... Kindness. Kindness is really a simple concept, but it can be hard at times for multiple reasons. We all can agree that our world needs more of it but sometimes, we don't even do it ourselves!

Show Up

You just gotta show up. Recently I shared a story with someone about something I received from another person (I promise the Dr. Seuss trail ends there). A total gift! Their response to my story was, “it just seems like God is blessing you because you are a pastor.” I kind of didn’t expect that … Continue reading Show Up
