You can speak peace in your life

Peace! Be still!

I’ve got you, babe… 2009 was not a good year for me. My business was failing – I lost $100,000 in one week. Kia’s business was faltering – a luxury services don’t sell in a down economy. Relationships were stressed – financial problems don’t make for warm fuzzies. Everything was falling apart. Have one of these years? In […]

transform: there is a fine line between sharing from the heart and sharing for my heart -andy bondurant

Transform | No strings attached.

Not so clever Most times I like to start off with some clever story about my past, something I’ve read or some hilarious thing my kid’s done. I’m not so clever today. I have a couple of quotes, a Jesus story and a big idea – transform. Stay with me. Hypocrisy. And in his teaching he […]

Keep it real - honest and available

Think of all the posers you know | Keep it Real

Keepin’ it real. It started with my friend Shane getting real in a van full of guys he didn’t really know. He just told his story, no holds barred. 8 of us listening, amazed. At that moment, just hours into the trip, the weekend changed – the mood shifted. We went from 8 guys who had […]

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 […]

The Weight of Fear (Don’t be afraid!)

Pick-up Sticks There is a story in the bible about the great prophet Elijah. A famine ravaged the land – no rain fell for 3+ years. Along with the rest of the nation, Elijah was hungry. He visits a widow who is gathering sticks for a fire. While performing this chore, she is planning the […]

Everyone is my neighbor, but not just anyone on Andy Bondurant

Neighbor: Everyone not just Anyone

Who is my neighbor? There is an intrinsic understanding in everyone to care for the people around us. It’s natural to help the people we’re close to, but it’s not normal to help someone we don’t know. It’s even more unusual to help someone we don’t like. So there is a question we all ask ourselves regularly, […]

For Joy Jesus endured the Cross on AndyBondurant.com

Joy and Pain. Sunshine and Rain.

It Takes Two If you’re the right age, you remember the rap duo Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock. They were close to a one hit wonder – that one hit being It Takes Two. There release was a hit, but even if you never heard their song, you probably heard the hook (whoo! yeah!) […]

The power of Light. Last Sunday, all around the world, people celebrated Palm Sunday. The celebration was a reminder of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. We joined in the praises, shouts and cheers the people directed toward Jesus. You can’t imagine that day without a bright, sunny and cheerful setting. It’s the high point of Jesus’ ministry. He’s a […]
