Sometimes The Biggest Things Happen In The Smallest of Moments

Everything about me is big – from my hair, to my butt, to my laugh, to my appetite, to the way I barrel into a room like a bull in china shop. I don't even do things in a small way. I play big or I go home. As a motivational speaker, I encourage people ...

A Simple Prayer To Still My Judgment

Dear God – Please help me refrain from rushing to judgment without first having all the facts – and even then. Help me refrain from creating an entire story around heresay.

Yet another thing I love about Jesus, is that He walked the streets – among the people. He was accessible, and mingled with all. He didn't limit His ministry to the walls of a church. He went to find the people. While I love my church, and I love the ministries offered to help grow ...

Motivational Speaker Once Again Motivated By The King

As a motivational speaker, I used to think my faith was seperate from my work. One day I'm a motivational speaker, the next day I'm an inspirational speaker. And in a way it is. And it a way it isn't. Certainly I am not allowed to speak of my faith when speaking to a secular group ...
