Inspiring Articles
This Time Around - Defining SuccessI also remember having a hard time – particularly in high school – figuring out what I was good at. Maybe that’s why I liked re-lacing my shoes so much as kid. 

Jen Hatmaker - The election thoughts form a Christian Independent  - That any believer imagines a political platform will either usher in or threaten the kingdom of God is worse than dramatic; it is unbelief.

The Isle of Man - Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose  - Whether you dig Star Wars or not, you have to admit -- he had a point.

Anger, fear and aggression will do nothing good for you, specifically when they are working together. And I think it's interesting that they would be grouped together in this particular quote.
A Deeper Family - No less good - Even now, three weeks after everything crashed around me, there’s still a pull to “just be okay” – to act as if nothing is wrong. I’m learning this isn’t the way to live. True, the other way leads to uncomfortable conversations and awkward emails. It’s difficult to let someone else hold your pain for awhile. But I’m recognizing the goodness in admitting I’m not okay – that my expectations were shattered and I just don’t know where to land outside of His hand (and wasn’t I there to begin with? so what does this mean of His goodness?)

The Well Thought Out Life - I don't like the word "missionary" -  Do you think missionaries are a super holy group of folks doing the most difficult work of God?

Ah, your respect is appreciated and I hope what we do is worthy of honor, but your workplace may be a more difficult mission field and you persevere in daily. What we do is not so different, it's just in a different place. 
The Isle of Man - If I ever teach a Class on Parenting  - You'll eat, drink and go to the bathroom on their schedule.

And you'll like it.

At some point, you're gonna get pooped on
