Simple Faith...Simple Fitness...Simple Food

When did life get so complicated? Life used to be so much easier back in the day. What if we got back to the simplicity of life and focused on what really matters?

Simple Faith

God doesn’t want our relationship with Him to be complicated.

Simple faith means to see ourselves the way God sees us.

Simple faith means to trust God’s love and simply allow God to love us.

Simple faith means to trust in the blessings that God wants to bestow on us. Blessings that are not earned by our...

Simplify

The thought of less is more has been put strongly on my heart over the course of the last few months. I have been caught up in doing too much and the feeling of being spread too thin. How many of you does that resonate with?

I am taking steps to streamline my life. To simplify. To live a life of less is more.

I am changing my schedule so I can get more rest. I am de-cluttering my house to the bare essentials to simplify my life and have less stuff.

I am doing more of what I love;...

3 Life Lessons from Super Bowl LIV

DOSOMETHINGSPECIAL.jpg

If you were like me you were riveted to the TV on Super Bowl Sunday, and no I am not talking about the halftime entertainment. I knew it would be an amazing game, I just didn’t think the Kansas City Chiefs had another come from behind win in them, especially playing the powerhouse San Francisco 49ers.

As I reflected back on the game, I walked away with three life lessons that I believe can apply to everyone’s life.

Perfectionism Destroys Our Joy

The unreal expectation of trying to be perfect is stealing my joy right from underneath my nose. Often times I don’t recognize why I don’t have peace and joy in my life. But then it smacks me right in the face.

This quote comes to mind; 

“Perfection is often the enemy of greatness.” -Janelle Monae

My unreal expectation of perfection is stealing my joy and ultimately my greatness. 

It makes me miserable. I beat myself up when I can’t live up to my own...

Who Are We Becoming

One of the most important revelations that I have had in the past year is that it’s not about the doing, it’s about who we are becoming.  I recently started an online men’s fitness ministry membership site.  I have already learned so much in the last two weeks. 

My vision when I left my position in the pharmaceutical industry was to be an online influencer for good.  Two and a half years later I am on that path of making a difference in the world both in...

My One Word for 2020...COURAGE

Courage-image.jpg

At the beginning of this year I chose one word that I wanted to live my life by. That word was abundance. I was expecting abundance in every area of my life including financial, relational and in my fitness ministry.

I expected abundance living a life of compassion, joy and vulnerability.

The scripture I chose for this past year was John 10:10. “The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

Has 2019 worked out exactly how...

Identity: How to Rediscover Yourself

I Am A Football Player

I am a football player. Having that identity growing up certainly didn’t work out very well for me when I blew out my knee my sophomore year in college. My life was a mess and disaster for a couple of years after I lost my identity as a football player. I had no idea who I was, what I stood for or who I wanted to be. I was lost, depressed and full of despair.

My whole life up to that point revolved around sports and especially football. I was Troy the star...

Rise Up and Conquer

God designed men to conquer.   We need challenges in our lives.   If we don’t have challenges we get soft and bored and that is never a good combination.   Revelation 3:21 states, “The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.”

I believe one of the biggest battles I see men face is one of complacency.  Not living life to the full, both in our spiritual walk...

Why I Integrate Faith and Fitness

I absolutely love to workout. I first started lifting weights when I was fourteen years old so I could get bigger, faster and stronger for football as that was my ultimate passion. After a career ending knee injury I turned my passion for football into my passion for fitness. I discovered a love for cycling and an immense passion for strength training.

Here I am almost forty years later and my love for health and fitness is as strong as it has ever been. God wired me with this intense passion...

The Journey to Impacting One Million Men’s Lives Starts with One

Can-I-Really-Make-A-Difference-.jpg

Not that long ago I had this crazy vision that was put on my heart to impact one million men’s lives through building a tribe of Spiritual Warriors. A Spiritual Warrior is a person who is willing to go on a journey of self-growth and personal discovery for a transcendent cause greater than ourselves.

I question myself every day if I am making a difference in anybody’s life. I question whether I am being the inspired leader that God is calling me to be. Am I truly modeling what it...
