You and I are allowed to spend a limited time on this little blue planet; therefore, I believe we should do everything we can to squeeze the most life out of each day God gives us.
In pursuit of that yearning, back in the 1990s, I started writing a weekly newspaper column designed to help the discouraged, distracted, and disillusioned discover and develop real meaning and purpose in life. I continue to read, research, and write with the same goal in mind.
The column (and this blog you are now reading) is published in several papers and read by thousands every week. On the blog, I often post additional articles and thoughts that I hope will help you get the most out of your life.
I grew up in a parsonage, have been a missionary, pastor, author, publisher, and more. My viewpoints are unapologetically Christian-based.
For those who want to know more – here is some personal stuff about yours truly:
For over 52 years my wife and I went on a variety of adventures – from being missionaries in Zambia for 7-years to house sitting on an elegant estate in Point Loma (San Diego) California for nine months.
Though I barely graduated from High School in 1961, I fell in love with education and have three earned degrees. But mostly I like to self-educate. I read voraciously, have been to uncountable seminars and training sessions, and I love to join discussion groups on almost any subject.
As the years go by, I have never stopped learning. It is evident to me that the more you know; the more you know you don’t know. (I think it was Aristotle who first said that.)
Besides a variety of interesting adventures over the years, I have also endured a few not-so-significant achievements, many of which I have subjugated to the land of forgotten screw-ups.
But through it all I knew one thing, I was here for a reason, and by golly, I was going to fulfill my destiny. It did not matter to me how far I would have to travel, how many books I would have to read, classes I would have to take, or how many mistakes I would have to make. I had a mission to accomplish, even if at times I didn’t know what that mission was.
