Time is Not an Illusion - Bonus material from The Immense Center

This is a portion of The Immense Center that did not make it into the final book. Not because I felt it wasn’t good, but because I felt it interfered with the pacing. The characters are the narrator, Gabe, Mick,…

Win the Battle in Your Mind

“Do you experience accusations and taunts in your mind when you drive home from Bible study? If so, please raise your hands.” Hands went up all around the room when I asked that question at a recent luncheon.

Do you edit the thoughts that run through your mind? Besides your spirit, the Holy Spirit, the world, the flesh, and the devil can plant ideas and thoughts in our heads.…

How I Became Too Blessed To Be Stressed (and How You Can Do the Same!


How many of us go through each day, dreading the inevitable job termination or the imminent fight with a spouse.  Then, almost like magic, we have a fight with our spouse, or we lose our job.  We then think, “Yep, I knew it, my life is going to hell in a hand basket!”.  It’s almost like we are…

God Help Me! I’m Broke! Prayer for Financial Help

Bring up the topic of money, and everyone has an opinion. The government should do more – or is doing too much already. “Income inequality” is the fault of greedy major corporations – or the fault of people who don’t take personal responsibility and work hard enough. God promises that His children will be rewarded with material blessings – or He is more pleased with those…

Health and Healing: Update on my Healing Journey

It has now been a little over 6 months since the original surgery. Slowly but surely I have gotten back to normal and regained my health and strength.

Courage Plus Change Equals Freedom

Change is hard, really hard. Especially when it comes to personal change.  It takes courage. First, you have to admit the need for change and this is where many people get stuck.  We like our comfort zone, we know it and it’s predictable; it’s easier to stay in it and stay miserable than to work to make our situations better. Not that we don’t want better, we…

Takin' Care of Business

This song by Bachman Turner Overdrive is the definitive song about entrepreneurship. It's about the lure of owning your own business, where you can “work at nothing all day.” For many, that lure means setting your own hours, only doing the things you enjoy doing and leaving the rest of the work behind.

“The future depends on what you do today.”  -Mahatma Gandhi
Staying up to date in your industry is a struggle for many of us in all walks of life. As I have worked in the technology sector for over fifteen years I have seen many changes. Some people take their career for granted and don’t stay up with the changes while…

Group Leader
How To Avoid Burnout in 2016

There's never been more noise. What's the signal-to-noise ratio like in your life?

If all we do is listen to external noise, and do not develop our own voice from within, we will always feel acted upon ... instead of living our lives with strength and purpose.

We can…

Kellogg’s announced recently that they will be artificial flavors and colors from their cereals and snacks by the end of 2018 and General Mills will remove them from their cereals by 2017.
