Why doesn’t life ever seem to slow down? I was talking with a good friend and mentor of mine sometime ago. We discussed how a peaceful life always seems to be just around the proverbial river bend. The next season of life always promises to provide the peace we desire. Now, some people do sign up for too many things. We live in a culture which worships busyness. I am not using the word ‘worship’ just for effect either. I…

A good friend of mine knows watches. He’s got a wealth of knowledge on them and can tell you the good or bad about most watchmaking companies. He can also teach you how to lookout for fakes. This skill is at it’s peak when it comes to Rolex watches. There’s a few different ways to tell if you’re looking at a phony Rolex and he knows each one.

Like myself, she writes about and works with people on the hurts, habits, and hangups of our lives. I encourage you to check out her blog. It has a great wealth of resources to help process through some of the difficult things in our lives…

I mentioned a few weeks back that I recently started to work through a Christ centered 12-step program called Regen. I’m in my sixth week of the process and I’ve learned more than I expected. I’ve also realized my journey will be harder than I assumed. This difficulty is something I’m learning to appreciate. It’s still hard just to talk about going through a 12-step program. My fingers fumbled a little as I typed the first sentence of this post…
