It's time to slow down on

It’s time to SLOW DOWN

Give me a break! This week, I’m tired. I worked Friday night (a normal day off), I worked a longer than normal Sunday, and I had an extra long day on Monday. Concurrently, I’m also pushing myself on some personal projects which keep me up late most nights. I need to slow down. I need a break. […]

the power of affirmation in a selfie

Wait. Let me take a selfie!

I was lookin’ good! This week, as I walked out the door, heading to work, Kia looked up at me. She said, “You look really nice. Take a selfie.” I’ll be honest, she was just back from a trip, wiped out and hardly awake. I don’t know if she was seeing clearly. But I did it. I […]

EDSO from Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek

My Drug of Choice.

My addiction. Last week, I finished Simon Sinek’s book, Leaders Eat Last (for you keeping track at home, I’ve now started and finished 3 books in 2015. Working on 2 more right now). When it comes to our religious and spiritual views, Sinek and I aren’t compatible. He writes Leaders from the perspective of man being an evolved animal. I don’t […]

The end is near!

World Cup Fever We’re nearing one of my favorite times in all of sports – the World Cup . I can’t wait to see what is going to happen. More importantly, I can’t wait to see what is going to happen with the US Men’s National Team (USMNT). I don’t follow all of international soccer. […]

We are happy when content

No one was happy…

The following is a devotion I wrote last week for Cross Points Church. You can find these daily devotions for yourself online at Happy. No one is happy in Numbers 11. The people are tired of manna (11:6). Moses is tired of the people (11:14-15). God is tired of everyone (11:23). No one is happy. […]

Are we carrying baggage we don't need?

Baggage weighing you down?

Big trash pick up Saturday was big trash pick up in Shawnee, Kansas. Not special news to most people, but it was spectacular for Kia and I. I was amazed, amused and fascinated by the trucks, trailers and minivans full of other people’s junk. I literally sat on my porch for nearly an hour watching […]

What is your Word of the Year by Andy Bondurant

What’s the Word?

Word of the Year If you have read this blog much at all, you have read the term Word of the Year.You might be wondering to yourself (and others), what is the Word of the Year? As simply as possible, the Word of the Year is a New Year’s resolution summed up in 1 word. […]

Be still and reflect on Christmas by Andy Bondurant

Be still.

All is calm… My favorite Christmas carol is Silent Night. The first 2 lines read: Silent night, Holy night All is calm, all is bright All is calm…what a picture! I don’t know about you, but during the Christmas season there aren’t many calm moments. It’s part of the power of the hymn – an […]

5 mind blowing truths about PAIN.

I don’t always get Job. The book confuses me. I know Job’s friends end up being the bad guys, but sometimes they sound so right. Are they right some of the time? Job gets hosed in the short run. Why? Was this just a cosmic showdown with Job as the pawn? Why does God take […]

There is no such thing as work/life balance.

Is work/life balance possible? Alain de Botton is an author. He wrote the book Religion for Atheists. I’ve never read it, but the premise sounds interesting. Honestly, I had never heard of de Botton until recently. I have Twitter to thank for the introduction. Someone retweeted a Tara Gentile retweet of de Botton. Follow that? If […]
