When Was The Last Time You Challenged Yourself?

ChallengeYourself

The latest craze this summer was the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Were you challenged to do this challenge to help raise money for ALS awareness?

The ALS IBC raised $94.3 Million in donations between July 27th and August 29th this year. Compare that to the $2.7 Million that was donated last year and you see how effective it was.

The ALS Association isn’t new, they have been around since 1985, and yet, a few people were able to turn a challenge into a very successful campaign for a very old disease.

We all have something in our lives that has been around a pretty long time, don’t we? We think because it’s been around so long we don’t have to push it any further because “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” While this is true, no one ever said to not improve.

In fact, Proverbs tells us to seek knowledge:

An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge – Proverbs 18:15 Read More

Boundaries

Boundaries Dr Cloud & TownsendHave you ever read a book and just said, WOW!? This is what I said every time I sat down with this book. I will be honest, I was a bit worried knowing it was written by not one but 2 doctors.

Past books I have read, written by doctors, were so dry and so boring, I couldn’t stay awake much less have any desire to finish the book. I can’t say that about this book. It captivated my attention from the get-go, and I didn’t want to put it down.

To say it’s a must read is an understatement for me, I want to call it a required read. This book hits home on every different angle of life you can possibly touch on. Family life, Spiritual life, Friends, Work, Volunteering, the list goes on. Read More

4 Simple Tweaks To Improve Your Daily Attitude

How often do we jump on a social media outlet to start our day and allow our attitude to be changed by what we find others have posted?

My life is probably no different from yours. I have 4 kids (well 3, Oct. 6th #4 will finally arrive!), a wife, 2 dogs, a job with a variety of personality types as colleagues, a couple of used cars which sometimes act like they’re wanting to visit the mechanic, a hodgepodge of social media accounts, and many other items battling for my time, money, my patience, and many times my attitude.

Now, battling for my attitude might sound like a strange thing to say, but how often do we allow any of those things, listed above, affect our attitudes? Our attitude is a very big thing to God and being a good steward so if we don’t consciously make an effort every day to improve it, we are not allowing God full access into our lives.

Here are a few ways, I’ve found have personally helped me improve my attitude and improved my days considerably.
