Pick Yourself Up, Dust Yourself Off, And Start All Over Again

I just love the 1936 song “Pick Yourself Up”, first recorded by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers for the film Swing Time. My favorite verse is, “Will you remember the famous men who had to fall to rise again? They picked themselves up, dust themselves off and start'd all over again.” This isn’t about a… Continue reading Pick Yourself Up, Dust Yourself Off, And Start All Over Again

All Prayers Have Equal Value In God’s Eyes

First, I’ll bet you’ve been wondering where I’ve been the past few weeks. I’ve been contemplating. Yes, really. I’ll do a better job of staying connected through social media while contemplating in the future. So, what have I been contemplating? Christianity, naturally.

Communicate With Christ To Connect With Christ

As I’ve gone through life, I’ve realized that everyone communicates. People speak, use hand gestures, facial gestures, emotions, and even lean their bodies to communicate what’s going on inside their minds. In the secular world, I even teach a course on how to understand kinesthetic (think: non-verbal) clues from body language to interpret truth from… Continue reading Communicate With Christ To Connect With Christ

Leadership With A Flair For Christianity

According to society, we’re not supposed to have biases. By definition, however, not all biases are bad. Webster defines bias as an inclination of temperament or outlook. I have an admission to make: I have a bias. But it’s not a bias in a negative sense. I have a leadership bias. I look at all… Continue reading Leadership With A Flair For Christianity

Stuff Comes And Goes, People Are Forever

\This is a confusing title, isn’t it? We are so accustomed to hearing it the other way around, that people come and go in our lives. I’m here to tell you that the opposite is true: stuff comes and goes, but people are forever. We tend to think of stuff as the measure of our… Continue reading Stuff Comes And Goes, People Are Forever
