What Problem Have You Made Greater Than You?

What’s Your Screenplay?

What if everything you believe about yourself -- your entire way of being in the world -- is just a story? If you didn't believe certain things about yourself, like "I'm too shy" or "I'm not a type-A personality", what would be possible? You have a say in how this story goes.

Even NASCAR Has Some Good In It

Community: It's a word we hear and use often. Most of us have an idea of what it means. At the very least, we know if we live in a "covenant-protected community", especially if you've ever gotten a nasty letter demanding you change the color of your house to beige from what you thought was a lovely shade of chartreuse...[ read more ]

A few years ago, I found myself in personal growth and development seminar.

There's nothing inherently scary about speaking into a microphone in front of a group of people. In fact, all that's...[ read more ]

A Series of Unfortunate Events

Given the events of the day, I had every reason to feel a bit sorry for myself. Stringing together the Series of Unfortunate Events that occurred, it would be very easy for me to convince you of it, too! When the alarm went off one morning, I bemoaned the fact that I wasn't feeling well. My stomach hurt and my...[ read more ]
