Telling on Yourself

“Tattletale, tattletale – hang your britches on a nail,” we chanted at whoever ran and told on us. No one liked being ‘ratted out’ – like for throwing rocks or stealing M&Ms. It took guts to ‘go to the authorities’ (usually Mama) because the backlash from the rest of us would be painful. We were...

Red Man in a Blue World

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: 1 Peter 2:9 KJV Christians are ‘a peculiar people’. We’re whacky to most of the world we live in, walking...

The Striking Hour

When you hear profound stuff, you want to share it with others. I often quote my friend John Richie in these posts, but when he shared his decision-making paradigm with me, I said “This is too good. Did you really come up with this?” He confessed he did. So I asked him to share it...

Holy Ground

What do Acts 7:33, Exodus 3:5 and Joshua 5:15 have in common? In each, the Lord says … “Take off your shoes. The place where you’re standing is holy ground!” Taking off your shoes is important for three reasons. 1. Stopping what you’re doing – Being inconvenienced is necessary. You have to sit down to...

Half a Year – Gone!

Check your calendar. The 4th of July is tomorrow. That means June 30th has come and gone. Half of 2014 is over. Just like that. About this time last year, Belle Beth Cooper¹ wrote an interesting article on Buffer about time perception. I was fascinated because people my age constantly yak about how fast “life’s...

Bitter or Better?

One of the most gentle people I know has a customer who hates him. He’s made up his mind and there’s no changing it. My friend goes the extra mile and then 7 more for his customers. I can’t imagine anyone hating him. Heck, I can’t imagine any one not liking him. But this customer...

The Happy Husband Pledge

Okay guys, this one’s NOT for you. We’ve seen enough comments to convince us that more than a few wives read this column. And since “The Happy Wife Pledge” hit guys so hard, we figured it’s the ladies turn. So here’s one man’s take on what it takes to create and keep a happy husband...

The Motivation of Grace

This post is taken from John Lynch’s book On My Worst Day and used with permission. John rocked our world at Radical Mentor Bootcamp in February. We highly recommend his books and all the materials at TrueFaced.com. I start every mentoring group with Bo’s Café . . . an awesome read!   Pyracantha is nearly...

Submission to Oneness (Part II)

“Marital bliss”, if there is such a thing, happens when we experience ‘oneness’ with our mates. That ‘oneness’ is elusive . . . it usually lasts a few seconds. We want it to last hours, days, weeks, months and years. Let’s shoot for hours as a starter. Here’s three simple things to preserve oneness with...

Submission to Oneness

“Submit” may be THE most controversial word in the Bible, especially when it’s used by a man talking about a woman. It’s really hard to submit to anything or anyone. It takes a huge commitment to submit to a diet or an exercise regimen or a set of rules or a boss . . ....
