Love, Dates and Heartbreaks, part 1 – The Right Person Myth

In relationships, we often believe if we find the right person it will make everything right. So we ask ourselves, “Is this the right person for me?” Maybe we need to be asking a different question—a question that shifts our focus from seeking the right kind of person to becoming the right kind of person. The kind of person Jesus leads his followers to become is the kind of person we are looking for and, ultimately, want to become. August 15, 2021

Out of the Shallows, part 4 – Drop the Ball

At some point, we all face a choice of whether to remain in the shallows of faith or journey to the depths. The truth is we can’t do both.

Out of the Shallows, part 2 – Work It Out

Moving out of the shallows starts with feeding ourselves spiritually. But if we stop at that first step, we’ll be left spiritually fat rather than spiritually fit. How do we prevent that from happening? The next step involves a spiritual workout that’s unique for each one of us. July 25, 2021

You’re Not The Boss of Me, part 6 – Undercover Boss
