Now decades later, I’m thrilled to be hitting home runs in areas I call “Calendar, Cash, & Calling,” and I’m excited to share what God has taught me. Don’t get stranded at third base—this blog is all about making it home in these critical areas of your life.

David and Goliath and the View of God

“When Saul and all of Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid.” (1 Samuel 17:11).
