Hard Work or Life?

I love this quote by Truett Cathy, “Fall in love with your work and you will never work another day in your life!” Why do you do what you do? Do you see it as a job? Hard work? Merely a responsibility that you need to fulfill? As a child I loved farming so much [...]

the Gift of Leadership

Many of you have been given the wonderful opportunity to be a leader. It is a responsibility that has been given to you by the Lord and you have accepted that and all that it entails. Sometimes leading is tremendously fulfilling and other times a seeming unforgiving weight of responsibility. Mark Miller,  a leader who writes [...]

“Get me out of this!” Have you ever had that thought? A challenging situation, a trying circumstance, a leadership crisis, a overwhelming problem that is looming over your sphere of influence. It could be in your family, job, church, or just life in general, but the persisting problem is there and our thoughts and emotions [...]

Healing Testimony

On my way to The Gathering, Tracy calls me and cancels. She informed me that she was making a dish to bring for the meeting and she spilled bacon grease and it caught on fire. Her arm from the wrist up past her elbow caught on fire! She decided to home remedy this wound. After [...]

Double Standards

I find that many of us live by double standards. What do I mean by that? I find that sometimes the expectations I have of others is higher than the expectations I have of myself. I expect others to complete things on time and if they do not, they are slacking. If I am late [...]

Accept Responsibility

Quantuvis, as great as you choose. As I mentioned last week, Mark Miller introduced me to this Latin word. BTW, Mark has a blog on leadership that I read regularly and would recommend for any leader. Quantuvis, you choose. Could you really be in charge of your own destiny? Usually we look for someone or [...]

How Great do You Want to Be?

God has called you to be a leader and if a leader, I believe He has called you to be a great leader. We live in a society that unfortunately tries to place the blame of failure on anything else than personal responsibility. You have heard me say many times that what you do not [...]

Young ones can lead!

The last two Sunday mornings I have been to celebrations where children have had a vital part in what was taking place. Last week, at The Fireplace in PA, Heather, the children’s ministry coordinator, was sharing the vision of the children’s ministry at the Fireplace.  She had the children do a drama and then she [...]

90 And Still Impacting

I was part of a wonderful celebration yesterday, my Dad’s 90th birthday party. It is hard to believe that he is 90 years old. We praise the Lord that he is experiencing very good health and still works in his wood shop often, creating tables, stools, benches, and the like, most often to just give [...]
