Four principles we explored from this parable: 1. Storms will come – they come to all of us. 2. The way you respond to storms depends on the strength of your foundation. 3. You won’t really know the strength of your foundation until it’s tested. 4. The time to build your foundation is now. Solid …

This is one of those posts I hope someone learns something from which can help them in life. Okay, I hope that for all of my posts — otherwise why am I writing. But, I see this one as a life-giving post for those who will read it and take some of it to heart. …

The longer I’m in leadership, the more I realize I don’t always fully know the real health of my team or organization at any given time — at least as much as others do. Don’t misunderstand — I want to know, but often, because of my position, I’m shielded from some issues. I’ve learned, right …

I am an introvert. Some people can question whether they are or not. I don’t. I’m certified in Myers Briggs, so I know the language well. I’ve studied the concept. It didn’t require much study though for me. I’m in the camp. It means Sundays I’m more tired when I go home. It means I …

Let's be honest! Criticism can hurt. No one enjoys hearing something negative or finding out that everything you are doing isn't perceived as wonderful by others as you hoped it would be. Criticism, however, is a part of leadership and, if handled correctly, doesn't have to be a bad part of leadership. Learning to let criticism work for you rather than against you is a key to maturing as a leader. Recently I posted 5 Wrong Ways to Respond to C...

Criticism accompanies leadership. The only way to avoid criticism is to do nothing. If a leader is taking an organization somewhere, and really even if he or she isn't, someone will criticize his or her efforts. The way a leader responds to criticism says much about the maturity of the leader. Here are 5 wrong ways to respond to criticism:

This is a hard word for some pastors, but after a recent post I was asked about how I protect my Sabbath. That’s a great question, because many pastors struggle in this area. In fact, many pastors I know who would teach their church to observe the Sabbath, seldom do so personally. This fact alone …

Frankly, I wish it happened more often, but I am always encouraged when it does. Occasionally a young father will come to me wanting to know how to be a better husband or father. One thing they specifically ask is how to take advantage of the time they have with their family and to be …

I want to encourage you to plan an intentional date night. Make the reservations. Get a babysitter. (Trade with another couple so they can do this another night.) And, date. Not just a normal date. That’s not what I mean by intentional. Date. Like you did when you were — well — dating! Get to …
