Day 12: The Influencer

She’s been on my mind since the training facilitator asked our group to write down a most influential person in your life. Most people might claim a mom or dad, someone in the family or a mentor. I’d put my influencer right up there next to my Granny who did the most monumental for [...]

Day 11: Beauty of SEA-TAC

I’ve just spent the last seven days in the Seattle area including downtown Seattle, Tacoma, Fremont, Woodinville, and Shoreline. I’m taken with the beauty of this part of the Northwest. More on my trip later, for now enjoy a few photos that I think are just wonderful. What a beautiful [...]

Day 10: What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Today was really life changing for me and it’s not every day that I can say that. I’m in the northwest for business leadership meetings and today was day one. It’s not just any leadership meeting though, we’re learning to lead like Jesus from the greatest leader of all time. One of the [...]

Day 9: Trust In An Elevator

The other day I stepped onto the elevator of the Seattle Space Needle that would take me up in the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River, 605 feet in the air to be exact. A structure that has 25 lightening rods. As I stepped onto the elevator in a split second I put my complete trust in [...]

Day 7: Smiling in Seattle

Today I spent the day in downtown Seattle, doing what every tourist would do. I went up in Seattle’s number one tourist attraction the Space Needle, I toured the Chihuly Garden and Glass, and I got a glimpse of the Seattle waterfront via guided boat tour through an Argosy Tour. I’d [...]

You might agree that traveling these days is just not what it used to be. Granted I was straight off of two sixteen hour days and this was day three of waking up at [...]

Day 5: Touched By Generosity For Haiti

As Hurricane Matthew made landfall and pounded Haiti, the phones began to ring in the make shift call center set up for a two day pledge drive hosted by the radio station I work for. Hundreds of listeners responded to the request for donations to support our community supported radio station and [...]

Day 4: Why I Love National Night Out

I love the concept of National Night Out. Did you celebrate it in your city? It’s recognized once a year all over the country as a time dedicated to community building throughout neighborhoods across the nation. What began as a way to prevent crime in neighborhoods has only strengthened the [...]

Day 3: In A Letter From Jail

The letter arrived in a hand-addressed envelope from the Travis County Corrections Center. While I didn’t know the author her words cut deep to my core. On the outside of the folded letter she had written in bold letters “I praise God for you”. My heart was pricked by her words. I thought how [...]
