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 […]

Jimmy Superfly Snuka

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 […]

Bold on Andy - cause, courage, commitment

BOLD | Cause. Courage. Commitment.

BOLD in 3 Steps BOLD takes 3 things: Cause. Courage. Commitment. Cause No one is bold for bold sake. We are bold for a reason. We are bold because there is something greater on the line. The very first step to being BOLD is discovering why. What is on the line for you? What is your why? Your […]

Doubt is the gateway to Faith - FOMO on

Oh no…FOMO!

FOMO Maybe you’ve heard of the acronym – FOMO? It stands for the phrase “Fear of Missing Out.” It speaks to the experiential nature of our culture. It’s the idea that something hasn’t truly happened unless it’s posted on Instagram\Facebook\Twitter. Funny enough, research shows all the digital memory taking we do (photos, video, etc) actually leads to less […]

On the Mexico side of the Rio Grande

When 100 Yards is a Million Miles.

New Year. New Perspective. The Bondurant family started off 2016 by gaining new perspective. We journeyed what seemed like 1 million miles away, but we only needed to see 100 yards across a river. Kia and I and the whole family (all 6 of us) took a trip to Reynosa, Mexico, just south of the border from […]

Change is Hard to do on

2016 Word of the Year | BOLD

The ‘C’ word Can you imagine one word changing the entire trajectory of your life? As hard as it may seem to believe, it’s possible. One word can radically change your story. I know this because one word, five years ago, began a snowball of change and growth in my life. Which brings me to the […]

May all your wildest DREAMS come true!

Napoleon Dynamite One of my all-time favorite movies is Napoleon Dynamite. I find the mix of comic absurdity and sweet truths a great combination. For those of you who haven’t seen the movie, it’s a story about a social outcast (Napoleon) who finds his place through two friends (Deb & Pedro). One of the ways […]

Walk out of Egypt on

Egypt: Have fun stormin’ the castle!

It kinda feels good… Why does someone stay in an unhealthy relationship? Not just relationships with people but drugs, porn, gambling, eating, sex, shoes – you name it. Why do we stay there? I’m no psychologist (I have a hard time spelling it), but I think it’s about believing life on the “other side” is actually better. […]

Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek on

Work-Life Balance

ATTACK Last week, I shared how I am ATTACK-ing 2015. ATTACK is my 2015 Word of the Year. You can read more about how I’m starting, but I left one thing off my list: Reading. I want to read more books this year – at least 2-3/month. So far, I’ve ready Creativity: Overcoming the Unseen Forces that […]

David was above the politics by Andy Bondurant

Up for a game of politics?

Who’d you vote for? Sometimes it seems beside Jesus, the most important person in our world is the person we’re voting for. President, Governor, Senator, Councilperson, School Board Member – it doesn’t matter how high or low the position, it is near and dear to our hearts. Okay, so maybe politics – the voting kind – isn’t your […]
