    How Good Is “Good Enough” to Lead?

    Consider Jesus' own example when you think someone isn't ready to help others.

  • The Fox News Channel Wasn't Good for My Soul

    On November 7, 2012, I stopped watching the Fox News Channel (FNC).

  • The Passenger in Row 20

    My return flight from Nashville last week was already running about an hour late, and everyone surrounding me at the gate was anxious to get on the flight and get home.

Just now, I glimpsed into the lives of my “friends” and scrolled by what they are facing… Donna sadly reports that her cousin fell 40′ to his death while installing […]

  • The Last Chapter of My Life

    I think a lot about aging. Maybe it’s because I’m 46 years old—heading quickly toward 50.  I don’t think I’ve peaked yet in my effectiveness. I believe my best, most productive years are in front of me. But I also am very aware that when someone reaches their peak and begins to lose effectiveness—they are […]
