One of my long-time online mentors was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer. The cancer had already spread into his liver and bones. The prognosis was not good.
When I heard the news that Dan Miller is coming close to meeting our Lord and Savior, my heart sank. This man who has poured into thousands, if not millions, of people around the world will soon be leaving us. He’s already shuttered his podcast with a goodbye episode.
Not only did he inspire me, but he introduced me to wonderful people. From Skip Prichard to Michael Hyatt, his son Kevin Miller, Jerrod Easley of Podcast Movement, Kent Julian to others… He opened my eyes to the possibility around me.
As he’s leaving this mortal plane, he’s still inspiring those who have gotten to know him over the years. He’s not bitter, angry, or frustrated. No, Dan Miller is excited about what this next stage of being brings him. Read more...
As a Christian leader, I believe everyone has a purpose and meaning for their lives. Everyone was created for something special in this world. In Ephesians 2:10, the Bible tells us that we are Christ’s workmanship. We are created in Christ Jesus for good works (purpose).
You and I… We were not created by accident. We were created for something.
While I believe this purpose and meaning comes from the lives we live, we can find purpose and meaning in the things that we do. Including the organizations and people we lead. There’s a purpose and meaning behind this!

It’s funny that I’m writing this article when I am. The morning I was writing this, I began to take a look back on my leadership and writing journey. I began to think of the people I started this journey with. Read more...
The holiday season always makes me reflect. Holidays bring about thoughts of family, friends, work, and life in general. There’s always something to reflect upon.
This Thanksgiving holiday is no different. We’re one day away from spending time with family, friends, or alone. Ouch, if you’re in that last category.
Yet, we all must regularly reflect, even more so around the major holiday. When we reflect, we are able to see what’s important to us, how we’ve spent our days, and more.
Today, I want to reflect upon gratitude. There are so many things that we can choose to be grateful for. We only have to decide to do so.
10 Things To Be Thankful For This Year
We all have people in our lives that shape us and change us. Our friends can do this to us more than anyone else. Read more...
Today’s post is going to be a very personal post.
Why? Because I lost someone very special to me on Tuesday.
I had to say Goodbye. And goodbyes suck.
Monday, I awoke and life was normal. Pam arose early to let Lok outside and I stayed in bed with our boy Leviticus.
Little did I know that this was going to be the last day I’d get to spend with him. When I came home from work Monday night, there was family over but something was off.
Leviticus had no desire to eat. He also wouldn’t drink.
As the night progressed, we saw more changes. He began holding his head against the walls. He almost walked into our pond (man, did he ever hate the water and being wet). He also had trouble walking. Read more...
A year ago today we said goodbye to you Zane. It was the toughest decision we’ve had to make. I’ll never forget you and I’ll always love you. One day I’ll see you again.
