A Season of Life

It’s been a while since I’ve written. Much of the responsibility of the blame for my absence, I could attribute to my busyness level jumping from a 3 to a 10+. But in every method of busyness, there are always lessons that are worthy of expression and can ultimately help those that could potentially be following along. […]

Operating with the Spirit of Excellence

The times we live in call for a new kind of people to step to the forefront. In a world that embraces status quo, as long as you fit into the everyday norm of what everyone refers to as normal, you can slide by with no problems. You won’t ruffle any feathers and you won’t […]

The Business of Sports

I’ve come to realize that the entertainment value that professional sports offers sometimes shields the business and politics that are a constant. I know first-hand about the business side of the game playing for four teams in eight seasons of my NFL tenure. Blinded by big dollar contracts and flamboyant personalities, I believe it’s something […]

What is Christmas to You?

Layaway lines crowded, credit cards maxed, and YES, bills missed. You ask why? It’s Christmas time!

Take It By Force

There are a lot of progressive and amazing things going on in the body of Christ. On the contrary, there are also many things that are not perceived as positives. Being a believer myself, I recognize and notice that a major flaw we possess, is that in many faith circles, we have lost our boldness […]

Embracing Change

We’ve heard it said many ways…”God won’t allow you to hold on to the old and the new at the same time”. We’ve heard it often referred to as a “New Season”. Whatever the case or reference, we all have a hard time adapting to it, and embracing the inevitable…change! I refer to it as the inevitable for […]

An Order of Protection

Much talk is done concerning the “Armor of God”. The discussion stems from Ephesians 6:10-17, a very familiar passage of scripture. How many of us have really explored this passage, and figured out how we can actually equip ourselves with the armor? Often times, in our familiarity with scripture, we lose our drive to truly […]
