STOP THE SCAVENGER HUNT!

Escape games, murder mystery dinners, a jewelry heist, binge-worthy Netflix thrillers… Everywhere you turn, there’s something new to solve. My daughter even bought into the hype and purchased the game Clue (by the way, it was Professor Plum with a dagger in the...

In the Rearview

I’m not sure who invented the backup camera for cars, but they’re a genius (and probably a billionaire too). It’s so helpful to be able to see what’s behind you so you don’t make any moves you wish you hadn’t. As of just a few hours ago, it’s a new year. 2019 is upon...

BEN COURSON: 🎵 Music, Mansions, and Miscreants

Merry Christmas! Many of you have already enjoyed opening presents by the time you’re reading this, but I have one more gift for you… So far in December we’ve heard from Jason Roy, Levi Lusko, and Stephen Christian. What a lineup! For our final installment of December...

VENT AND PREVENT

I sat down with a church planter a few months ago for coffee, something I like to do as often as I can. His church had launched just a couple weeks prior, and as expected, those previous couple weeks had been very stressful on him and on his family. He told me about a...

Let It Be

During the month of December, I’ve asked some friends of mine to share some words with us here. We heard from Jason Roy, lead singer of Building 429, last week, and today we have the honor of hearing from Pastor and Best-Selling Author, Levi Lusko. The content below...

CRITICISM AND WHAT TO DO WITH IT

Critics are to leaders what mosquitoes are to summer. They seem to appear in droves and can make life miserable. Although no one likes criticism, it’s part of leadership. The only fool-proof way I’m aware of to avoid all criticism is to not do anything meaningful with...

INVESTMENT WITH TRUTH

Since it’s the Christmas season and I like to give, I thought I’d give you the gift of hearing from some good friends of mine throughout the month of December. Beginning today, you’ll be hearing from some very special guests as they share insightful thoughts from...

YOU CAN’T PLEASE EVERYONE

Among the many important things we’ve learned along the way, here’s one you already know but may need to be reminded of: You can’t please everyone; and if you try, you’ll lose. This is a vital truth to remember but an easy one to forget, especially when everyone seems...
