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 […]

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.

What does it mean to have BOLD goals?

So math isn’t my strong suit.

Word of the Year | Bold 2016 is all about BOLD. I’m focusing on BOLD prayers, goals and dreams. I shared some specific examples of each a couple of weeks ago. Since then, I’ve been focusing on my BOLD goal. I want to sell 1000 t-shirts, raise $5000 and send a bunch of kids to school. Read anything about […]

Homes for the Homeless trip with Strategic Alliance in Mexico

Eyes Wide Open

Artist on AndyBondurant.com

An Artist’s Manifesto (of sorts)

Call yourself an artist and people either immediately agree or call you a fraud. The word artist is polarizing. For some it’s a great thing, but others it’s a joke. You […]

We live in a NOW world

Generosity…NOW.

Our NOW world. We live in an immediate world. We can expect so much right now – fast food, microwaves, ATMs, text messages, online bill pay, video & audio streaming. Sometimes it’s difficult when something literally can’t be NOW. It’s the only way, I can explain how an email like this has anyone bite: WESTERN […]

Surprised by Joy

Kalos Christmas This past Christmas season, Cross Points Church implemented Kalos Christmas. Kalos is a Greek word taken from scripture that reflects good or beautiful works.
