Personal lessons I learned that can be a stepping stone/guide to anyone.

Forgive and Forget Pt 2: Like Father Like Son?

I’d like to think I’m a strong guy. I stand at 6 feet 4 inches tall, go to the gym frequently and conquered a Tough Mudder event recently. As I edited the video accompanying this post, I realized how tough it was to speak about my dad on camera. Why was it so hard to ...

Are you a Man or a Young Man?

Life is sweet! I haven’t been as consistent with my blog posts due to everything God has been revealing to me.

I am propped up at my desk, sipping on Celestial Chamomile tea (thanks to my bro and his wife for getting me hip), while thinking of what to say in this post. Ten minutes earlier, I was going through my closet picking out clothes for the morning: ...

Prayer Works: My Public Speaking Fear

February has been a great month for me thus far. Work is transitioning well as I have settled into my new role and have an assigned market (hello Philadelphia), and my friends and family are doing great! Although it seems like I have it together on paper, I have been praying to God for the ...
