There are many things I have learned in my life. Whether it was from life experiences, education, my thirst after knowledge, trial and errors, or wins and defeats. Among those are the value of relationships. Deep rooted relationships, whether that is of a person I am dating, a friend, family member, or brotherhood. People may notice that the person I have a meeting with, a meal with, is the most important person or people in the room to me. My cell phone goes on silent, and unless I am on call, or expecting an important call, my phone is either…


I haven’t done a video on my YouTube Channel, nor a Podcast, now for some time. I haven’t had the motivation or inspiration lately. I have been a bit distraught with a loss of a family member, distracted by stress, and to be honest wondering if it even makes a difference. Now you may be thinking I am being rather negative, or pessimistic, which is not like me, but I am just being real.

I am an ENFJ Meyers-Briggs Yungs Personality Typology, with my top Spiritual Gift being Mercy (empathy gift), and my #1 of “The 5 Love Languages” is…


I wish to preface something and add my “2 cents” before you may read this article linked below which may still be apropos today. I am not casting judgment. I am no one’s judge. Some ONE has that job already, and I surely do not want it. I make mistakes, have failed, and continue to do so. However, I do strive to correct my mistakes, and learn from them and my failures. I am thankful there is a God that forgives me, and works with me to mold me into the man He has Called me to be. …


I am typically not going to say anything if you are wearing a mask or not. I do prefer a person stay 6 feet from me unless they know for certain they are healthy. But I prefer that any way, unless I know you very well.

Not sure why this mask thing is such a big issue or made to be political. People touting “facts”, “scientific facts”, as if they are some sort of medical professional or something without doing a moment of adequate research, verification, and validation.

I am not giving up any freedoms if I wear one, besides…


If we are being honest, we all have tried to please someone. Whether it is our spouse, someone we are dating, our boss… Personally I do not think that is a bad thing to make efforts to please those that you love. To honor them, while demonstrating you love, not just in words, but in actions and deeds. However there is a trap with living your days as a “People Pleaser”. It is not only mentally unhealthy, and self defeating, it is an impossible feat. We were not designed by God to be People Pleasers.


I am not one to “push religion down someone’s throat”, as a matter of fact, a lot of “organized religion” makes me cringe. However, I am a man of faith in what I believe is the One true God, and His Son, Jesus Christ. To me, it is about a relationship and not religion.

You will not typically see me preaching on a street corner. However, you may see me listening attentively and replying with empathy to someone on a street corner or park bench.

You may not see me screaming from a podium, pulpit or stage “turn or burn!”…


I keep thinking about a young (but an adult) biological family member state that “posting the truth is often divisive” and that I may “have been censored because of friends reporting me on FB”. He shared with me the story of the “naive mouse walking up to a hungry snake” that encouraged me to write the article at the link below. My further truth and facts in my replies to this person seemed to have tiggered this person to the point this person began to accuse, lie and then sound like a spoiled brat that didn’t get their way to…


“Strong Willed”

I have been a strong willed person since I was a child. Just ask my mom and dad, or even my biological brothers for that matter. I may be experiencing some “pay back” with my own strong willed children. (One I have nicknamed “Sassafrass”) However, although difficult to manage at times, I do not think being strong willed is a “bad thing”. If directed and guided appropriately after actions, ideas, & things honorable, moral and sound, it can be very good. Their “strong will” can make a measurable positive impact in their life, and the lives of others. They can…


I have not served in the military, but I have trained the military. I have not been off to a physical war, but I have been in a war.

The adversary to the creation of God is a master war strategist. He organized a war, a coup, a heavenly insurrection over God & His administration. This serpent cares nothing for humanity in fact he despises God’s creation of mankind. He seeks to devour and destroy it. He is a master manipulator, deceiver, war strategist and knows the bible better than many of mankind. …


I am probably going to “ruffle some feathers” with this post. May I ask you a question? Where do you go for advice, recommendations, and wisdom?

Do you watch the Main Stream Media for real news and facts? Do you seek truth, or put your mind on auto-pilot while you sit in front of your TV, laptop, or smartphone?

Who is your Preacher? Is your Pastor’s messages biblically aligned, or more slanted with opinion or theatrics?

How about the people in your life? How about your closest 5 friends? Do you truly know them, who they are, what they are…
