A Life Lived

Fearless by Eric BlehmI just finished reading the book Fearless by Eric Blehm. This book is simply incredible! Adam Brown, the Navy Seal who the book is about, was simply incredible! I could hardly put the book down. Adam Brown is a man to be looked up to and admired in all areas of his life. I would encourage anyone to read this book and be inspired.

The author spent countless hours interviewing friends, family, co-workers, and others who knew Adam and he puts together a detailed look at Adam’s life, both the good and the bad. That’s one of the amazing things about Adam Brown. [Read more…]

I’ve seen so many posts on Facebook to the effect of “I hope this year is better than last year”. Well, I’ve got news for you. This year is probably going to suck.

We are camping this memorial day weekend, so we listened once again to one of my brother Brandon’s sermons which they post on the web. You can find them on iTunes at International English Church as well as on their website under the Listen tab.

We just love listening to Brandon’s messages. They are simple enough teachings for a new Christian, yet they have enough depth that people that have been Christians all their lives can be impacted as well.

We chose to listen to this second message from his series on I Peter titled “Who You Are”. This is something that so many people struggle with. Until you truly understand your identity, you will not have the impact in this life that you could have.

What’s Your Excuse?

Book Cover for Life Without Limits by Nick VujicicI just finished reading Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic. I was given this book to review courtesy of the Blogging for Books program of Waterhouse Multnomah Publishing Group. I was very excited to get this book for review. I have watched several of the YouTube videos of Nick, and I have checked out his website as well. He is a very inspirational young man and his book does not disappoint.

I was reading my devotional, Day by Day with Charles Swindoll, last night and learned something I found rather interesting. I learned the origin and meaning of the word serendipity. I think this word is a very important word as well. It’s key to living a full life I believe.
