Concerned about another software company ripping me off, I awake at 4:17am. I prefer to sleep, but make my way to the coffee machine and into my office to check on a refund. No such luck – no refund. The tension is rising. The root cause is not the money or principle, it’s the time […]
Driving from Kigali towards Musanze, I grab the handrail as the tattered jeep sends us air born in our seats, hitting every pothole along the way. I spot a waterfall and ask Emmanuel, the driver, to pull over to take pictures. Excited, I jump out of the vehicle to capture the perfect shot. Suddenly we […]
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” – John 15:5 When Jesus said nothing, he meant NOTHING! And when we refuse to abide in His ways, we are destined to produce rotten apples. […]
How ironic. Just a few weeks ago I blogged about turning trials into triumph. Today, I’m typing this one flat on my back to share my revelation of turning back pain into empathy. Sounds like a trial to me! Thankfully, compared to many people, my lifetime contains a few minor injuries, illnesses, and surgeries. Not […]

At 3:30 am I awoke with a feeling that I thought I buried after leaving the demands of my technology career. I thought, “Oh no, this familiar […]
God knows what we need even when we don’t have a clue. I recall a time in my life when prayer was not a priority because I found it challenging to devote the proper amount of time, focus, and patience to the wonderful world of prayer that I know today. Praise God for His faithfulness […]
I recall being a new Christian. It was exciting, awkward, intimidating, uncertain, and thrilling all at the same time. Unfortunately, my development as a newly baptized Christian delayed for many years because of a gap in answering the question, “now what?” Even though I attended church from my earliest years of childhood, my defining moment […]
Spiritual growth is very similar to successfully running a marathon race, allow me to explain… Many years ago, I trained to run the Disney full marathon race. It was a spontaneous decision with no prior experience unless you count my half-hearted attempt at high-school track and field. I knew that I would never train for […]
I spent a good portion of my life being more critical and judgmental of others in some capacity and I even achieved becoming my own worst critic. I’m embarrassed and remorseful and praise God for pruning away my critical spirit and replacing those voids with compassion, understanding and a new level of love for people. […]
I’m on a flight back from Chicago to Atlanta and this is on my mind…what message do I want to share tonight? I started to question why I feel self pressure to leave a message and why would I think that anyone would be interested in what I have to say? I think I fall […]
