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 […]

We all want newer, better, faster, stronger. It’s why you upgraded your phone/car/computer/dishwasher/drill last year. […]

God doesn’t always make sense.

Miracle! Years ago, my daughters miraculously survived a massive car wreck. While their babysitter was driving home on a local highway, something fell off the back of the truck in front of her. She couldn’t avoid it, and she hit this metal object at over 65 mph. The results weren’t pretty. The SUV they were traveling in was crushed, flipping multiple […]

Joy is from satisfaction, community and peace

Joy!

Joy Unspeakable!! My day job, so to speak, is overseeing the children’s ministry of a local church – Cross Points Church. We call the kids ministry Cross Points Kids. I’m hired to be a children’s pastor, but my job is to lead a team of teenagers and adults who teach kids on a weekly basis. […]

Who are you leading? Who is leading you?

Who is with you? Who are you with?

Leading 101 I’m passionate about leading, and there is one important thing everyone must know if they desire to be a leader: You’re not leading if no one is along for the ride. When I read the bible, many times I read it through the eyes of what it means to lead. It’s one of […]

David battled goliath as part of a team. Who's on your team?

Goliath Principle: There’s always another giant.

Everybody Hates Andy Bondurant

I Hate Christian Laettner.

For those unaware, Christian Laettner was a superstar college basketball player at Duke University in the late 80’s and early 90’s. […]

My Psalm on AndyBondurant.com

My Psalm

Meeting daily together… Every Monday through Thursday morning our staff meets at 8:30 to read a passage of scripture, a short devotion and pray together. It’s always a little different, but a couple of weeks ago we didn’t something I’ve never done before. After reading a Psalm written by David, we were challenged to write […]

We all are constantly harvesting and planting.

Plant. Harvest. Repeat.

Plant. Harvest. Repeat. It doesn’t matter who you are, and what you do in life, we all are planting and/or harvesting. It might be in the natural (gardening, investing, teaching, etc) or the in the spiritual. Don’t be misled – you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.  -Galatians […]

David battled goliath as part of a team. Who's on your team?

Of myths and giants (and team)

Myth David defeated his giant Goliath alone, so I must defeat my giant alone. Reality David had a king and nation at his back. David had a God at his side. David defeated Goliath with a team. David stepped forward, picked out 5 smooth stones and walked out to to face the giant, but he was never alone. When […]
