Eat the Locusts in Front of You

Eat the Locusts in Front of You

Leaders must solve problems. Besides being decision makers, vision drivers, and humble, level 5, catalysts of social change, leaders must confront issues that threaten their team.

Down Memory Lane (a review)

Down Memory Lane (a review)

Reviewing a Bible is a bit audacious, but in this case, I am reviewing a few years of my own life as well. Let me explain. While living in London, England, as a college student (23 years ago), I was introduced to Bible teachers like Dick Lucas, Hugh Palmer, David Jackman, and others. Many of…

It’s almost Christmas 2014. And this is a good thing. Yet, today, my daughter said goodbye to one of her closest friends, who is moving away to another town.
