God creates something from nothing

From Nothing to Something

Close your eyes… No seriously, participate in this little action with me. You can’t close your eyes (and still read this) but imagine nothing. Okay, I know that’s hard, but as best you can imagine empty space, no creation, vast blankness. Now to this empty space, add a light (someplace, somewhere, somehow). Now add a […]

Pilate said, what is truth on Andybondurant.com

You Can’t Handle the Truth!

Truth From the beginning humans have wrestled with truth. What is true? How do we know it’s true? Why is it true? Is it true for everyone? Is it true for just me? In the garden, Eve is standing at the tree (right beside Adam, look it up). The snake questions the truth of God’s commands. Did […]

The FUTURE: You won’t believe this story!

The set-up This Christmas, I took my family to spend a week in Mexico, but this was no trip to the beach. For the second year, we joined a team of over 150 to build 20 homes for the homeless in Mexico. These homes are all in and around a squatter village called “The Colonia” surrounding the town […]

What do I do with this Dream? on Andy Bondurant

What to do with your dream?

The Impossible Dream Our culture celebrates big dreams. We are told to shoot for the moon, swing for the fences and climb tall mountains. We marvel at those who make it big – goals fulfilled.

APEX: The Most Difficult Climb of My Life

Apex 2017 Over 20 years ago, I made one of my most rewarding and difficult hikes of my life – an active volcano. The (literal) pain came during the last push to the peak. The final several hundred yards was a sharp incline, covered in volcanic ash. Imagine hiking the steepest part of a mountain – in sand. I was literally on hands […]

What is your purpose? by Andy Bondurant

Uh oh…now what? What is your purpose?

Purpose and Disillusionment Solomon, ancient king of Israel, is known as one of the wisest men to ever live. He wrote hundreds, maybe thousands of songs and even more deep thoughts (proverbs). Solomon led a nation of millions. He oversaw an empire stretching across his known world. Yet, his personal life crumbled in the end. By all accounts, […]

Something Lost and Something Found

Tearin’ Apart the House Last year, my boys wore me out begging for a new game console. They desperately “needed” to upgrade from an XBox 360 to an XBox One. After negotiation, we figured out a plan, which included selling all of our old gaming equipment. That weekend, we gathered all of our stuff and headed out […]

silence on Andy Bondurant

Silence is…Impossible

Silence is…Impossible I’m sure you’ve heard this phrase – “Silence is golden.” If you are a parent of young children never have truer words been spoken. There can never be enough silence if you live in a household of toddlers. As my children have aged, silence is still hard to come by…possibly even harder. Now there are […]

I’m really excited about both the site, and the future for The Restore Project. Here’s the story… Short Version Immigration, walls, reform – most of us don’t have the solution. Through long talks with people […]

How to Grow from Your Word of the Year

Word of the Year | Resolution on Steroids Last week, one of the stars of professional wrestling from the 1980’s passed away. Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka died from complications of cancer and dementia. He was a wrestler I remember well (as that was my heyday of wrestling memories). Yet, the one thought I was struck with as […]
