Inspiration Perspiration

February 29, 2012

I was listening to an interview with an arena football player Ahmad Carroll. They were talking about Tim Tebow. That guy is the most polarizing sports figure I have ever seen. Personally, I love what the guy stands for…..but I am a Dallas Cowboys fan, so I can’t really like his football skills. Haha. Anyways, […]


Living the 6

February 28, 2012

So I am a dad. I haven’t written a blog about little Arlis yet. Just didn’t have the right words to say that would represent what it feels like. He was born on December 6th, 2011 and my life has not looked the same since. There are tons of phrases that come to mind like: […]


The Politics of Jesus

February 27, 2012

I am about to do something you should never do. Talk politics. Especially politics mixed with religion. I am pretty sure that some people are not going to like what I have to say. But that is what comment sections are for. If you don’t want to read on….I understand. We are in the middle […]

Life Changes

September 23, 2011

This blog is a view into my life right now. I know it may seem self serving, but I feel like it is something that everyone in ministry goes through. If you haven’t yet, you very well could face some of these same issues. I hope that you realize how important your life is to […]


Doing What You Want = Fail

June 24, 2011

My life has changed so drastically in the last 3 years. 3 years ago I was a youth pastor in Miami Florida. I loved my job, and it was what I thought I would do for many years. Around that time, God started speaking to me about taking Bike For The Light national. That is […]


Try To Fail

May 24, 2011

I was watching a movie the other day called “Mr. Baseball”. It stars Tom Selleck as a washed up baseball player that gets traded from a team here in the US to a Japanese baseball club. Nothing special, just a good way to kill an hour and a half. But while watching it, I saw […]


al-Qaeda Ministry

April 26, 2011

Although al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden have become almost synonymous over the last decade, bin Laden does not run the organization single-handedly. Its infrastructure is small, mobile, and decentralized—each cell operates independently with its members not knowing the identity of other cells. Local operatives rarely know anyone higher up in the organization’s hierarchy. Truth be […]


Stalk The Killer

April 18, 2011

There is a mini-series on tv right now called Human Planet. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should definitely check it out. It’s an 8 part series made by the BBC and Discovery Channel. It is a lot like their other mini-series they have put out about animals, both on land and in the […]


The New Home

April 16, 2011

Hey there guys, just a quick note. If you remember, a couple weeks ago I posted about selling Gracey the bus. I talked about how she is gonna be working with a ministry down in Miami that teaches kids to surf. Saw this pic of her today and thought I would share it with you. […]

Awaken The Sleeping Giant

April 13, 2011

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto was a part of the military in Japan during World War II. Yamamoto believed that Japan could not win a protracted war with the United States. He even seemed to believe that the Pearl Harbor attack was a blunder — even though he was the person who came up with the […]
