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 […]

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. We encourage the ones who have stumbled along the way. I’m no different. In my last post, I shared my desire to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

character quote by billy graham on Andy Bondurant

…and have character.

Heard around the world. Two or three months ago, I had an impacting conversation with Scott Schwab. You may have heard of Scott. Actually you may have heard of his son. Scott’s ten year old son, Caleb, died in an accident at the Kansas City waterpark, Schlitterbahn. It made headlines around the country and world. A […]

Fig Leaves & Failure. Gold Medals & a Garden.

Gold Medals and a Garden A few weeks ago I attended a one-day leadership conference led by Craig Groschel and Andy Stanley – two mega-church pastors from the US. At one point, Stanley made this statement: “When you look at success from a birds-eye view, it’s easy to assume one or two great decisions paved the […]

As Nike Once Said…Just Do It.

July 8th I told you I was taking a month long break. Those 4 weeks quickly turned into 5 then 6 and now 8. I’m back, but can I let you in on a secret? I don’t want to be back. I haven’t lost my passion. I still care about you. I love to write. […]
