Change is hard, especially sometimes for us men. Still, God calls us to live our lives and that means change. Making the wrong change can often be worse than making no change - so how do we know what to do?
Recently I've gone through a major change in my life as I've changed professions, and moved into a much more risky scenario. Along the way I had to try to figure out what was the right thing to do, am I doing what I want or what God wants?
In this episode I give you the tips that were helpful for me to make this choice. Hopefully they will help you to make the best choices you can when you hit your moments of change.
Pride is a dangerous component of every sin, and of every person. We all suffer from pride. The less prideful you think you are, the more you actually are likely to be. To overcome this pride requires more than simply embracing religion or speaking poorly of oneself. It requires a change of heart.
In this episode, I discuss 5 steps to becoming more humble. I draw heavily upon C S Lewis, both in his writings and in his book The Screwtape Letters. Humility is hard, and I hope that you will find these suggestions to be helpful for you to overcome your own challenges with pride!

While there are many reasons we may not be evangelizing, I think all of us realize we should do more. Christ has given us a gift beyond comprehension by His death on the cross.

In this episode, I hope to give you some help with this. I offer you 5 practical tips to help you share your story with others. It is not easy - the devil himself is dedicated to preventing this. We have to be intention, we have to remember the importance that sharing our story has. I know that you have the power to make a difference in the lives of others.
We alll fall short of what we have been called to. For those of us who are Christian, who know that we have a special charter to show Jesus to the world. Yet, we tend not to do that. Why?
