People come and people go; that's just the way life works. We are living in a generation that is slowly getting back to understanding the power of connection. Yes we have personal responsibility, but we are also better together. With this longing for relationship and the fulfillment that comes from them, there is also the … Continue reading Maybe It’s YOU!
Last month, I shared a sermon series about generosity; and as I was preparing for the last sermon, something in the scripture hit me hard in my chest. In 2 Corinthians 8, The Apostle Paul was describing the generosity of the churches in Macedonia. There was a great need and the apostles were receiving relief … Continue reading True Colors
I'm not one to believe that this world is the product of chance. You and I are not accidents, but we are the product of divine purpose, because anything created has a reason for its existence. Simply put, purpose is the reason for which something was created or done, and even though we can't always … Continue reading Purpose Creates Passion

The premise is as follows: the federal government designates someone from the president's cabinet to sit out from the state of the union, in an undisclosed location, on the chance of a catastrophe wiping out the line of presidential succession. This person is the designated survivor, … Continue reading A Misunderstanding of Greatness

One of the greatest criticisms of the Christian faith is our preoccupation with heaven and what happens after we die. This fascination is particularly prevalent in … Continue reading Next Lifetime
https://youtu.be/5wBTdfAkqGU California is a unique place, and the people who live there (I believe) love to tell you where they are from. They are fully aware that there is no other place like California. California is a destination for millions of vacationers and dreamers, with bright lights and big cities in their eyes. However, those … Continue reading California Love
https://youtu.be/vimZj8HW0Kg I've heard it seen at time and time again. A parent will get down on their knee and look their small child in the eyes and say something to the effect of, "I ain't raising no punk. Now, don't you start a fight, but you better not let them run over you." Growing … Continue reading Mama Said Knock You Out
https://youtu.be/sb2np1HGqxg?t=33s It is inevitable. Everyone is going to want something that they do not need. Not only that, but we will all at sometime want something that is bad, dangerous, or down right fatal for us. At some level, we are all fascinated with the excitement of thrills.
