Reminiscing: what some topless women taught me about public speaking

africa

The year was 2001. I found myself sitting in the middle of a little church in the middle of a little village in the middle of nowhere in Kenya, Africa. We were miles from electricity. The church was a small building made from sticks and mud. With the exception of a few people, everyone was standing because there was not enough room to sit. A decent-sized group of people stood outside, listening through the windows. About 45 minutes into the church service, my guide/interpreter gently elbowed me in the side.

Why we replaced Chick-fil-A with beans and rice

Here in Amarillo, the Chick-fil-A closest to our house has a glorious thing called “kids eat free night” on Thursday nights. Since I’m sort of addicted to the Spicy Chicken sandwich and Chick-fil-A sauce (and since I’m cheap), it is a match made in Heaven.

So, I’ve been neglecting you in order to write a book


I’ve had a fair number of people asking me why I haven’t posted in awhile; so, I feel as though I owe the internet an update. During the time that I would ordinarily waste blogging, I’ve been writing my first tiny book. It’s pretty much finished now; so, get excited. I’ll likely start boring you with blog ramblings again soon. The book should be available in paperback at Amazon.com and in downloadable form (for Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.) within the next few weeks. I will, of course, keep you posted.

My Thoughts From Day 1 of the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit

I’m up dark and early-ready for day 2 of the WCAGLS. I wanted to get some of my thoughts written down so that, when I’m reading my own blog for egotistical purposes later, I’ll remember (and hopefully be continually motivated) to be challenged by the content of the summit.
