The Midnight Zone

Off the coast of the Mariana islands lays a wonder that, though it can be described, is almost impossible for us to really fathom.  At the bottom of the ocean, there is an undersea canyon, called the Mariana Trench.  This gash in the ocean floor is five times the length of the Grand Canyon.  If...

Controlling the Negatives

We live in a world of constant, and often instant, feedback.  To deal with this, it is helpful to understand how you were designed to react to negatives.

Even mundane, middle of the week Wednesday is so very boring that it... Continue Reading →

One Purpose (Consecrate2020)

Perhaps you have heard this story of a lighthouse.  I know I am not the first to tell it.  In fact I will share it here exactly as I found it... -A lighthouse along a bleak coast was tended by a keeper who was given enough oil for one month and told to keep the... Continue Reading →
