A Once in a Lifetime Life-Changing Opportunity

                              Kialee and Grandpa

This is my 17 year old granddaughter, Kialee. She has a once in a lifetime opportunity that will change her life forever and I feel privileged to ask you, my friends, to help make this possible.

Kialee is praying for the funds to join her youth group on a mission trip to South Africa. Diane and I have contributed a significant amount to help her because our own experiences on these trips changed our lives.

We would love to see her faith strengthened by seeing God use you to help answer her prayers.  

Thank you ahead of time for your generous response. This is the first request like this I have made.

Don’t be frightened. I know that you know I have four other grandchildren, but you can relax. These bread-snappers are spaced years apart so further appeals will be far in the future.

Have you had the opportunity for a trip like this?

How did it change your life?

When You Have a Dream, Where Do You Start?

Almost weekly, I receive messages from men and women who dream of doing what I have done for over 45 years. They want to make a living doing what they love to do, speaking, writing or providing a service that changes lives. They are talented people stuck in jobs they don’t enjoy.

There is one major question each of these people ask. How do I get started? Because the BIG answer to those questions couldn’t fit in an e-mail or blog post we developed the Launch Conference.

But I can at least give you the first steps toward seeing your dream become a reality. 

Two Gifts that Keep On Giving

You will not believe this amazingly talented eleven year old boy playing a medley of Christmas songs on the guitar.

I know! Its not Christmas! You still have to see this to believe it.

The development of this boy’s talent was only possible because of two gifts he received. You have the power to give the same two gifts to a child, to someone in your family or even to someone on your team. It will change their life. So, what are these gifts? Watch the entire clip and then read on…

The Blessings of a Life of Integrity

1keys-to-a-blessed-life-how-integrity-blesses-you_miniI watch the news. I peek behind the curtain of politics. I examine my life and the life of my friends and I am compelled to pass on this post on integrity by Rick Warren — Oct 31, 2015.

Rick’s entire original post can be found by clicking here. I encourage you to read it in its entirety. I hope it will convict and inspire you as it did me.

I have included portions of Rick’s post below so that I could embed my thoughts in response to his points. My comments are in red italics.

My own post entitled, “Day One,” will appear next Thursday. It is an essential follow up.
