In The Thick Of It, Life Is Still Great

4 minute read
The “thick” of life is simply a disguised stage that offers amazing opportunities to model steadfastness, commitment, discipline and dedication. It’s the stage where you discover what true purpose means and looks like. And it’s the stage where you really discover what you’re made of and what matters most to you.

3 minute read
Failure is not the enemy, the fear of failure is ... the refusal to lean into it is ... and the failure to learn from it is. In this life you will fail. And it’s okay. Despite the lies that our culture perpetuates, we all fail. And it is indeed okay.

3 minute read

Curiosity is not about challenging what you don’t agree with, it is not about breaking down systems, it is not destructive by nature.  It is about intentionality, about thinking for yourself, and at its best it can be about problem solving to find better ways.

There Should Be Nothing Mediocre About Your Life

4 minute read
Christians are not on earth to be mediocre, or ordinary, or comfortable. Yes, bloom in the most mediocre of places and in the most mediocre of circumstances, but remember, Jesus never blended in.

Has Church Become Another Thing To Do?

4 minute read

Done With Busy

4 minute read
Let us no longer glorify abundance without purpose. May this be the undoing of mindless multitasking. Let us cease thinking that busy is a measurement of worth. May we graciously learn to surrender a full life for a fulfilling life.
