Early in my writing career, I had the opportunity to work with a brilliant author and inspirational speaker, Dr. Dennis Waitley. As a mentor to Olympic athletes, Apollo astronauts, and top business executives, Dennis loved the saying, “Believing is seeing.” You read that right; Dr. Waitley insisted that people need to believe before they can…

This summer I have been engaged in a beautiful study of the book of Psalms. These anthem verses written out of the depths of searching souls have been like packets of light and hope calculated for my personal state. There have been many days this summer I have found myself saying, “Oh my goodness, that…

A few nights ago as I laid in bed waiting to fall asleep, my mind was filled with thoughts and a desire to be better. I wanted to be kinder. To be more loving. More patient. To serve more. To just be better. I feel asleep and the next morning my mind was occupied by…
