Ford v Ferrari And The Precious Few Driven To Do Something

In the last couple of months, the film Ford v Ferrari has been playing frequently on HBO. For those who are unfamiliar, Ford v Ferrari follows the story of a determined team of American and British engineers and designers, led by automotive designer Carroll Shelby and his British driver, Ken Miles, who are dispatched by Henry Ford II and Lee Iacocca with the mission of building the Ford GT40, a new racing car with the potential to finally defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari racing team at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans race in France. I was excited to […]

Become Unhackable To Embrace the Life God Created You For

I’ve had folks reach out to me about becoming “Unhackable” (my topic yesterday during my Facebook Live video—you can watch it here if you are on FB), but here is a brief summary: Unhackable helps you become clear, focused and on fire in your work and personal life through a step by step 30 day plan that helps you get your dream done. It’s the Elixir for Creating Flawless Ideas, Leveraging Superhuman Focus, and Achieving Optimal Human Performance Through Flow.

My Book is Now Available on Kindle!

It’s been a long time coming, but my book, Say Yes: Discovering Purpose, Peace and Abundance in Daily Life was just released as a Kindle book today on Amazon! Happy Feast of Or Lady of Carmel! Just so you are aware, the Kindle version is advertised as a “Bilingual English and Spanish edition” and “Spanish edition”. All this means is that the Kindle book (and eventually the print copy) will automatically include the Spanish version as well as the English version. Amazon has no way to advertise a blingual book, so they had to create the category for me! But […]

Encountering Christ and Being Transformed–Dianne Davis of ChristLife–1 on 1 Summit Interview

One of the panelists who participated in this spring’s Say Yes to Holiness Tranformation Online Summit was Dianne Davis. Dianne is Director of Mission Expansion for ChristLife.

ChristLife’s story began with Dave Nodar, a Catholic layman, who […]

Your Time To Fly Is Now!–1 on 1 Summit Interview–Ruth Pierce

In the wake of the Say Yes to Holiness Transformation Online Summit that happened in May, I had the opportunity to do a series of 1 on 1 with many of the speakers who had been a part of the different speaker panels. Due to COVID, I got behind in publishing those podcasts and YouTube videos, but am seeking to correct that by sharing those now. Of particular enjoyment for me was the 1 on 1 Summit Interview I had with Ruth Pierce–author, coach, speaker and owner of Ruth Pierce Consulting. Ruth guides professionals to develop their mental, spiritual, and […]

Measuring Up: How to WIN in a World of Comparison–Renee Vidor–1 on 1 Podcast Interview

Several weeks ago, and just before I became sick with COVID, I spent time with Renee Vidor talking with her about her soon to be released book, Measuring Up: How to WIN in a World of Comparison. Subsequently, Renee’s book has been released and now available worldwide, so I wanted to share this insightful interview with all of you within the Say Yes to Holiness community. Renee’s book, Measuring Up: How to WIN in a World of Comparison, was born from Renee’s experience of walking down the Vegas strip on vacation, and feeling inferior to every stranger walking by. Her […]

Hamilton, The Founding Fathers And The Journey Towards Holiness—Episode 28 (.2!) of the Say Yes to Holiness Podcast

Gotta love how God keeps you humble! I just completed my latest Say Yes to Holiness podcast episode and realized after I published it that I had done another Episode 28! LOL Needless to say, this Episode 28 is most definitely different as I delve back into my love of history and intertwine some lessons for the journey towards holiness into this week’s conversation that has been inspired by the recent release of the Broadway play musical, turned movie, Hamilton: An American Musical. I hope my musings and the Hamilton inspired conversation helps encourage you on the journey towards holiness, […]
