There are times I’m a better leader than other times. Sometimes this is my fault. Other times the cause is unavoidable. If we can begin to identify what interrupts the effectiveness of our leadership, we can become better leaders. I have personally experienced some things in my own life whigh weaken my leadership. One of my goals is …

There are some lessons we only learn the hard way. One of those for me has to do with working with creatives. I used to think when leading creatives, the key was to free them to create. I gave huge blank slates, allowed them to dream, and gave them very few parameters of what I …

Everyone loves compliments – me included. I received a compliment recently from someone who met me for the first time and it was so encouraging. I met some visitors in the hall at church one Sunday. It was their first time and they didn’t know where the preschool area was, so I walked them there. …

After years of working with marriages, including my own, I’ve come to a conclusion. Marriages that struggle are often lacking one key ingredient. It’s something that, when missing from any relationship, will cause trouble in the relationship. The missing ingredient is called grace. And, when applied appropriately, it’s amazing. If the marriage is struggling, one …

Years ago I became fascinated with the questions of Jesus. It occurred to me that if Jesus was asking a question it must be an important one. In fact, depending on our response, they could be life-changing questions. I realize that in the culture in which Jesus lived asking questions was a method of learning, …

In every church I’ve been in, people want to reproduce leaders, but few think they know how. Sometimes we complicate things in leadership. In my opinion.

In leadership, its important to know the difference in popularity and trust. I’ve seen leaders – whether pastors, politicians or in business – try to take people places, even worthy places, and believe people would follow because they are popular as a leader. Yet people didn’t follow – because the leader hadn’t developed enough trust …

There are times where someone needs to offer constructive criticism. In fact, the best leaders and the best organizations are made better by learning to receive, process and respond to criticism. No one particularly likes criticism, but when it is offered properly it can actually improve life for everyone – which is why we call …

Cheryl and I had a model for our parenting. Whenever I say that to people they hear “complicated”. It wasn’t. We aren’t complicated people. Simply put, we attempted to implement grace into our home. Our boys are now grown — in their mid-twenties, but we have seen the fruit from our methods. We have two …
