Why You MUST Celebrate EVERY Small Victory

POSTED ON July 25th  - POSTED IN Life
My life is full of BIG projects. And when I say big, I mean huge two to three year jobs that seem to drag on and on and on. Doing big things takes time, especially when you are doing them yourself, and it is very easy to get bogged down and throw in the bloody towel. So today, I wanna share with you one way I've learned to get back up and keep moving forward...

POSTED ON July 22nd  - POSTED IN Travel
Travel Advice is one of those broad subjects that demands entire book shelves. But, there are a few things I have learned that supersede others. These are travel lessons I've learned to live by. Break them, and bad things will happen. That's why I call them My Five Travel Commandments...

What I’m Made to Do vs. What I live for

The other day I was talking to God (prayer). He was telling me some things that I really need to get straight. I argued a little bit at first, but in the end I gave in. Some lessons are hard to accept, or rather hard to accept the fact that you have to learn the […]

Knowing God vs Accomplishing Goals

POSTED ON July 18th  - POSTED IN God, Life
This week was stressful. We've been working hard to post-produce the next season of The Revolutionary Life before our deadline in October. We're planing two more missions in South Asia.

One of my loves is packing my backpack with as little as possible. I enjoy being minimalistic on the road. One reason I try to serve God is that, for me at least, hell would be carrying a backpack with too much crap up a never ending staircase in a busy Asian mall. No, thank you. Life is a journey.

POSTED ON July 14th  - POSTED IN Blog
As I'm still un-packing the last remaining boxes in our place here in Chattanooga, TN, where we just moved to, I'm reminded that in just a short amount of time I'll be packing my dear "Osprey" road bag for a trip back to Asia. I always joke about this, because it seems whenever I actually get around to un-packing our bags I ALWAYS seem to find myself packing our bags for yet another trip to go preach this great message of Christ to people who've never heard it. The point of our life is [...]
