Today... an interview I did for a podcast went live. I don't think my heart has left my stomach since. It is hard to share our testimony or past truths of things we've experienced sometimes and this was no different. Neil was given the floor to ask whatever he wanted and I ensured that I … Continue reading Other People’s Shoes – Podcast
WE ARE ASLEEP people. We are not even showing up to the battle because we are sleeping right through it. We will complain about a waitress who didn’t serve well, an employee who doesn’t show up or doesn’t work hard, yet we aren’t serving, we aren’t showing up or working hard either!

They look in the mirror and see failure, ridicule, embarrassment and despair, when instead they should see strength, honor, integrity, beauty, hope and success. And love, damn it! You should look at yourself in that mirror and see LOVE, for yourself.
It’s time to be real. To be honest. To lay it bare. Fear. Shame. We all have it and shy away from anyone who may hurt us by exposing us. The people in our life can be split in half right down the middle by two types; those who love us anyway and those who … Continue reading The truth sets you free
