What is your objective. Today. What is your objective. Each moment. Do you have an objective. Or is it just a to do list that you are trying to get through….over and over again. It has to mean more than that. It has to be more than a to do list. We are more than […]

The sweat dripped off the shirt. The word written across the back of the shirt said BRAVE. Brave. When was the last time you pushed yourself into brave territory. Do you see it during the day? Are we all just playing it so safe? What would brave territory look like. Say what needs to be […]

What Makes You More?

Something about the prayer flags that touch me. The colors. The gentleness of their movements in the wind. The words embedded in the flags. Just the idea. Prayer flags. A home surrounded by prayer.
