Embrace it Because You Can’t Erase it

Every January for the past six years I have attended a weekend men’s retreat put on by Unlimited Potential, Inc. This year it was held in Cave Creek, AZ, but in the past we always met up in Prescott, AZ at a campground. The unique thing about the campground is […]

A Belt Without Notches

Over the past 25 years a lot of things have happened in my life. Some great (becoming a husband and father) and some not so great (attending the funerals of my dad and two brothers). I have owned a business, dabbled in real estate, been worth millions (on paper) and […]

The Man in the Mirror

Over the weekend my family and I had the opportunity to spend time together at a youth retreat up in Prescott, AZ. The pastor they brought in did a phenomenal job telling an insightful story of David and Goliath. He spent less time on the battle itself and more on […]

Eternal Exercise

This coming March will be an anniversary of sorts for me. It will mark my 31st year of working out. This may sound trivial to many if not all of you. I mean, it sounds kind of ridiculous to remember the time when you first started lifting weights. Only a […]

Are You Living Life Like a Sponge?

This past weekend I had the opportunity to hang out with 70 men up in Cave Creek, AZ for a retreat. The organization is called UPI (Unlimited Potential Incorporated) and most of the guys are current or former professional baseball players. We encourage each other and talk about our struggles […]

Being Others Minded in 2019

This is day one of 2019. It is a time of new beginnings and making resolutions. The more I thought about this I realized that our New Year’s resolutions are typically me-centered and not focused on others. “I” want to lose weight, “I” want to work out more, “I” want […]
