Not many people can believe this about me, but I used to be very obese. In fact, I even have the stretch marks to prove it. Although my time as an obese man was relatively short (maybe 3-4 years cumulatively), it was long enough for me to know how badly people are physically, mentally and emotionally limited by this very, very avoidable problem.
Because of this experience that I've had, I am truly saddened by the new study that came...
On February 8th, something very unusual happened in Kentucky. Students at the small Christian college- Asbury University in Wilmore (which is just outside of Lexington), came to their regularly scheduled 50-minute chapel service at 10am...and it has been going nonstop ever since. 24 hours a day!
Students described what happened that morning as a spontaneous and supernatural move of God that made them want to seek after Him in a MUCH deeper way. After the first few days of this...
When I began to exercise 24 1/2 years ago, I did so because I wanted my body to change. I was sick with cancer, weak and debilitated from chemo, tremendously overweight, and 100% committed to changing those things.
What I realized after I had been exercising for a while, was that not only did I get stronger, leaner and more physically resilient...but my mental energy changed, my mood changed, and my overall feeling of wellbeing changed also. At the...
22 days ago, much of the nation was captivated by the shocking and horrific story of what happened to Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin. Early in their game against the Cincinatti Bengals, Hamlin made a routine tackle, got up, and then he immediately collapsed on the field. When the team medics came to his aid, they quickly realized that his heart had completely stopped beating.
You can watch those tense moments here:
Hey my friend! Happy New Year!

Here's our abbreviated 2022 recap letter (complete with pictures), if you're interested- 2022 Recap
Today though I don't want to talk...
Hey my friend! Merry Christmas!
Today is a day that seems to mean something a little different to everyone. For some it means family and friends, for others it means gifts, for others it means heartache and pain, and for others it means nothing. As you likely know though, the real meaning of Christ-mas is to acknowledge and celebrate the birth of Jesus!
Although the celebration of Jesus' birth on December 25th only dates back to the...
Two days ago, a single event captured the attention of people from every nation on the earth. The World Cup Final between Argentina and France is estimated to have had over 1,150,000,000 people watching it. Is that crazy or what?!
The game was not your average World Cup Final either, it is being called the greatest final in history.
The game was largely a showdown between two absolute superstars of the sport- Lionel Messi of Argentina...
