15 Nov Celebrating my wife … and celebrating Life (VIDEO: HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE)

So, aside from teaching and preaching videos, I’ve been wanting to share more aspects of my life on here so you all know that I’m actually human. LOL

 

Recently it was my wife’s birthday and I wanted to do something special for her. It’s been a dream of hers to go on a hot air balloon ride one day and, well, I finally made it happen.

 

 

You see, as I continue to live life, the more I realize the importance of slowing down once in awhile and really enjoying myself. It’s so easy for me to get caught up in the routine of my daily life (e.g., writing, making videos, speaking) where I can forget WHO or WHAT is in front of me.

 

LIFE is beautiful. It’s meant to cherished.

 

There’s so much to explore … so much to see.

 

Celebrating my wife’s life almost 3,000 feet up in the air is not something I do everyday. And I’m not telling you to do any adrenaline-rushing activities in order to experience life to the fullest, but I am reminding you to truly enjoy yourself TODAY.

 

Take a break from your busy schedule today and find some time to laugh and play … even if it’s only for a couple minutes. Trust me, it’ll do you some good.

 

Celebrate yourself today.
Celebrate those you love today.

 

In other words, celebrate LIFE today …

16 Oct Santa Barbara – Questions, Challenges, and Being Stretched

IMG_4629

Remy and I had an awesome time in Santa Barbara over the past few days. I was able to share and answer questions, spend time with a community, and even do an interview for an online ministry called The Golden Lampstand.

 

As for my speaking engagement, the audience/community was a pretty mixed group when it came to the people’s theological backgrounds. So, of course, there were different reactions to what I shared. But overall, it was a great experience for me.

 

IMG_4594

On our last night, before Remy and left to go home, one of the guys who heard me speak thanked me and said, “Usually when we have a guest speaker we don’t ever get together [as a community] and talk about it. But after you spoke we did. It stirred something up.” Those words meant a lot to me.

 

Folks, my heart is for people to discuss important religious doctrines which have definitely affected people’s lives–especially the ones which have seemed to hurt people more than help them. I encourage people to respect others with where they’re at on their journey, but to also be honest with where they’re at as well.

 

Can we openly share our hearts, questions, and doubts?

 

IMG_4608

 

Anyway, we appreciate the hours and hours of conversations we had over the past few days–especially the ones when people openly shared their struggles. Thanks for trusting us.

 

And thanks to Melissa and Ricardo Perez for hosting us. But most of all, we cherish your guys’ friendship. You two are awesome!

 

Let’s keep the conversations going.
