Over the years, I have read and heard many different definitions of what is required to be a successful leader. Some have claimed leadership is comprised of those who are willing to take steps where others will not go. Others proclaim it is seen in those who are able to get a large following behind […]

I must admit, there has been significantly more on my mind in recent times than there has been in many years. If it were possible to sum up the thoughts to have occurred during the past three weeks, it would take much longer than three weeks to explain them in proper detail. I’ve attempted many […]

For precept [must be] upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, [and] there a little. I’ve been thinking about that verse for quite some time, especially with the advent of returning back to school. Part of the challenge for me to return back to school was a feeling […]

Ladies and gentlemen, I continue my semi long-lost tradition of writing one final blog before university classes start. Welcome!

Dear Lucifer, For as much of my life that has been spent inside of your world, it surprises me that we’ve never had the chance to chat. Got a minute? Of course you do; you aren’t going anywhere for, say, ever? Maybe it’s prime time that we had a chance to level with each other. […]
