Want a Great New Year? Fight for It.

If you’re tired of being stuck in the same old year over and over, this post will help you get ready to make 2017 your best year ever. If you really want a great new year, keep reading.

My youngest daughter Kalyn loves quality time. It’s her love language.

Kalyn and I have a tradition of going to breakfast together. Over the years, those breakfasts have been some of our most special moments.

This was the bookend to the breakfast we had six months ago, the day before she left for Australia and Nepal for her Youth With a Mission training program. It was amazing to see how much she’s learned and grown in such a short time. Her love for the Lord and her heart for people are so powerful.

I hope you have opportunity to make some special moments like that happen with those you love.

One of the things we talked about was how important it is to be purposeful in making plans for next year.

If you don’t approach the new year with purpose, it’s very unlikely that anything will change for the better.

Time to Get Serious

Time to Get Serious

Are you ready to change your life? Then it’s time to get serious.

Life is short, and there are no guarantees.

But no matter what you’re going through in your life, it’s still your life. It’s critical to stay in the game and press through your difficulties, because you have a purpose and a plan that’s just for you. If you let adversity take you out of play, then you miss out on the blessings God desires to give you. And more importantly, you will fail to impact others in a positive way. You’ll let your family, your team, your tribe down.

In short, you have to overcome, because we need you.

Here’s the punchline: whatever situation or problem you’re facing in your life, you have to attack it with full force to survive and thrive.
