Frankly, I wish it happened more often, but 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 more effective with that time. As it …

“Pride goes before destruction…” Proverbs 16:18 We are all capable of pride. Some of us more than others. Here’s what I’ve learned over the years — mostly from my own personal growth and experience — Many times what may appear to us — or we may label as — a leadership style or personality is …

Bottom line: Every organization — whether a church, business or nonprofit– needs change in order to continue to grow and remain healthy. But here’s the thing about change. If you’ve ever been in leadership you know this. Change is hard. Very hard. And, it’s especially hard for some people. In fact, in my experience, the …

I’ve written previously about the first seven years of marriage. We don’t know why necessarily — I have some theories — but the years between 6 and 8 of marriage are often the most difficult. It seems so many marriages fail in the 7th year. It makes sense then that protecting the marriage during those …

I have had conflict most of my life between what I think I want and what I really need. Most people share this conflict with me. That conflict also appears in our children as well. We don’t have to teach children to struggle with determining between wants and needs. It’s a natural response to life. …

I am a runner. Running is some of the best thinking and down time I have in my life. It’s the one time where I’m the most removed from all the pressures of the world and able to clear my mind and concentrate. As a leader, I’ve found it to be a huge part in …

A few years ago I was running in Philadelphia. It is one of my favorite cities in which to run. I love the Fairmount Park System, because I can run for miles in new territory. On this particular day, I set out to explore a several mile loop around a portion of the park. Shortly …

People talk. People gossip. People love to share what they hear. That’s true about what they hear from a pastor too.

I’ve been an introvert all of my life. I was born that way — or at least I’ve been that way as far as my memory carries me. As a child, I remember at social gatherings people asking me if there was something wrong with me. Because to some people it’s “wrong” to not be …
