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 […]

Gael and Bon Bon - Escuela Viva and The Restore Project

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 […]

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 […]

The Restore Project by Andy Bondurant

Introducing The Restore Project

Introducing The Restore Project Yesterday, I launched a brand new website – The Restore Project. It’s a dedicated site for my t-shirts. 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.

Word of the Year 2017 | What’s Your Word?

What’s the Word? In 2010, I was at the end of my rope. Ever been at the end of your rope? It could with your spouse, kids, job, finances, school or 1000 other things. Maybe you’re at the end of your rope right now? Personally, I was at the end of my rope with my […]

Word of the Year | What I learned from BOLD in 2016

BOLD | Word of the Year 2016 If you read nothing else, read this. I double, dog dare you to be intentional in your life this year. 2016 was my 6th year of taking that statement to heart. I’ve done this through the Word of the Year project. Every year is different, but as I look back I see […]

Are You Winning?

The Lovable Losers It is playoff baseball time again. My Royals didn’t make the postseason, but I’m enjoying following the teams still in it. The Chicago Cubs clinched the last spot to face the Cleveland Indians. The Cubs won the series handily against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but early on it was not so sure. […]

The Magnificent Seven starring Denzel Washington on Andy Bondurant

What do you seek?

So you seek revenge? This weekend, I saw the remake of the Western classic, The Magnificent Seven. I won’t bore you with the details of the movie. You can find them all over the internet. In a nutshell, The Magnificent Seven is a story of the good versus the evil, and those who live in-between. […]
