The Anatomy of a Dream

God dreams consist of three key ingredients. Mission, vision & identity. Now before you think I’m going all business school on you, hear me out. Without these elements, your dreams will remain nothing more than an unattainable, unrealistic fantasy that brings nothing more than disappointment to your life. There is a difference between a mission […]

Relax, Relate, Release

I am driven. When I want something, I go for it with head down, single-minded determination. It’s a gift and a curse.

Is Blood Really Thicker Than Water?

Like most people, I’ve always assumed that the saying “blood is thicker than water” meant that family comes before friends. I never really thought about what the water meant. I figured it was a way to refer to anyone outside of your family. But in the context of Biblical covenant relationships, this phrase doesn’t seem […]
