17 Lessons I Learned From Reading The Alchemist (Part 1)

In Faith

A little while ago I reread the book, “The Alchemist”, which is about a shepherd boy named Santiago who loved his calling to be a shepherd. He was going through life doing what he loved and he thought he knew what he wanted. However, one day he met a king who told him something that totally changed his thinking and what he thought about his purpose, and it ultimately changed the course of his life. What he learned allowed him to truly discover and live out his purpose.   I knew I loved the book, but I forgot why I…

Why The Small Things Matter + How to Handle Them

In Faith

I was participating in a mastermind group one day and my mentor shared a story about how we need to be cognizant over the small things in our lives because they can derail us. She shared two examples to illustrate her point. The difference between a motorcycle that is upright and traveling safely is a pebble, because over a certain rate of speed a small thing like a pebble hit the wrong way can result in a motorcycle accident. Also, she shared that periodically a large airplane can crash because a bird interfered with the flight mechanism. This is exactly…

The Bible commands us to give, and it is truly amazing to give. One of the things that I love to do is to engage in service to the community. I truly believe that engaging in service is critical to living a full and complete life. Acts 20:35 tells us, “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the word the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” I love this passage because it demonstrates the importance of giving.   The benefits…

How to Teach Your Children To Love God And Walk With Integrity

In Phenomenal Living

It feels like there is an increased urgency to spread the Gospel of Christ and to walk in the way of the Lord. I’ve been talking to parents of older children to understand school programs and ways to educate children, and those discussions include their concern about what children are exposed to. Children are exposed to more much earlier, and we need to focus on raising our children in a way that is healthy and Christ-centered despite the Babylon living. A big part of this is how we live and how we raise our children, but also the messages we…
