An easy to remember, functional list of items we could all agree on and remind each other of in the moment. … Continue reading Do you have a ‘BE’ list?
We all have some power. What we do with it says a lot about who we are, in leadership, and in life.

What do you envision for your life a year from now? Not always the easiest question to tackle, but it forces us to look up from the daily grind, and put our eyes to the horizon. I started 2022 with an ending. I have submitted my resignation to the church I have been working with … Continue reading A New Beginning
Happy New Year! 2021 has ended with a bang! We thought we were in the clear for a moment, that maybe we would be almost back to 'normal' before hitting 2022, but here we are. We continue to pivot, we continue to adapt, and we continue to understand how 'normal' is not really normal compared … Continue reading A New Year, A New Vision
