I see life as a creative endevour. An opportunity to use the stuff of the earth, intellect, and imagination... for the benefit of others. Creativity is essential for finding solutions to lead people, make art, or care for a family. No one is exempt from their God-given capacity to create.
Creativity has taken me to places I would never have imagined... starting and leading two successful non profits (churches)... writing and publishing hundreds of articles, authoring fourteen books (non fiction/fiction), and hosting a popular podcast to help writers. The God-given compulsion to create has also opened doors to start a wedding business, publishing company, and coaching/speaking business with the internationally recognized John Maxwell Team.
These adventures in creativity are not for boasting. They're just an example of where creativity can take an ordinary guy like me (and you).
But... when all is said and done... my greatest addiction is grace. My life is an anthem of the old hymn, "Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me." My wife, kids, work, art, all gifts from the Gift-Giver.
