Meeting (and Keeping) Quality People in Your Life


By now, most people fundamentally understand the value of being surrounded by quality people. In fact, many people have it as a resolution for the year.

You’ve heard quotes like:
“Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are” OR “You are an average of your 5 closest friends”

I DON’T Wish You a Happy New Year: New LIFE Resolutions Pt. 7


Because happiness is not enough…
Because you can be confused and happy.

No. I don’t wish you a Happy New Year. What I REALLY wish you…is a year of MEANINGFUL PROGRESS. PROGRESS. PROGRESS. A “kick butt-destiny changing-dream building-kick doors open” year.

Why Marriages Are Not Happening Between Same-Church Members


Have you noticed? Men are shying away from pursuing women in their own church and women in their church don’t seem to be open to them anyway. Marriages are happening alright…just not very often between members of the same church.

By the way, this is not about marriages not taking place at a “church location”. This is specifically about why marriages are not happening between members of that church.
