Be encouraged, no matter how busy your schedule is…you are not as busy as you think you are. Whenever I start complaining about how busy I am, I recall a story from my days in the Navy. I used to teach a class about leadership (keep the comments to yourself), and it was [...]
It is actually funny that we are so fearful of the economy. We are petrified about what we hear…and what other people “think.” We have thousands of news sources and websites that tell us the economy is good and at the same time bad, and certain investments are good and and at the [...]
Today is my 25th Wedding Anniversary…and since I have the ability to do this…I want to tell the world about the amazing woman who has been able to put up with me for a quarter of a century! That even sounds like a long time. Her name is Anne Marie, and I am more in [...]
I was talking to someone about the year of encouragement the other day, and while this just started out as something for me to focus on, but it really has the potential to be an exponential explosion of encouragement. We like to dwell on the woes of the world…instead of determining what “we” [...]
I was thinking the other day about my days in the Slug Line. No…not my days as a slug…those have outweighed by far most of the days of my life. But the slug line is a phenomena in the Northern Virginia area where people stand in line to get a free ride to various places [...]

If anybody has ever been on a team, or been on a staff (my condolences), there are many times that we hit a road block, and everything comes to a screeching halt until we figure out what happened…and who was responsible. I have had times when I sat through hours of meetings to [...]
Be encouraged…there is one thing that is for sure in your life…you will make mistakes, say the wrong thing, put your foot in your mouth, mess up, do stupid things…whatever the term, you are going to be there. If you don’t think so, look at James 3:2-6.
James 3: 2-6 – For we [...]
A good friend of mine told me one time that he had too much baggage, and there is no way that God could either forgive him…or use him.
That is an absolute LIE…and that is what the adversary (Satan, the father of lies, etc.) would want you to believe. In other words….if you [...]
2012 – The Year of Encouragement
Okay…Dan has officially lost his mind. Stop right there…many have made that accusation, but nobody has been able to prove it in a court of law. And no…I haven’t developed a Napoleon complex, or any complex for that matter…I just want to tell people about a friend of mine…
