Farewell to My Hero… My Mom

I unexpectedly lost my hero today… My mom passed away peacefully in the arms of our family as we sang worship songs to usher her into her eternal place in Heaven. 21 hours earlier, she suffered a massive stroke in her brain and the doctors did all they could to keep her on life support until we could all get there to see her. If I could sum up her life it was: love Jesus love da … [Read more...]

This made me really sad…

I had an exciting and sad experience.   Let me explain…   I love playing frisbee golf.  It is like golf but you use special discs and throw into chain baskets.  I have been playing for about 5 years and have my entire family hooked on this sport. I try to play 3-5 times each week. A few years ago, I got my first “ACE”, a hole in one. Last week,  I made #2. I couldn’t find anyone to go with so I … [Read more...]

Lessons Learned from Fitness Workshop (controversial)

Last weekend, I took several of my trainers to Milwaukee for a fitness conference focused on transforming those from age 55-95 years old. Our instructor was a fitness expert out of Florida, go figure, and we learned so much when it comes to helping people age as awesome as possible. You might not be 55 or older yet, but chances are you have family members who are, and if we are blessed, we all w … [Read more...]

I … [Read more...]

The #1 Thing Required to Lose Fat and Transform Your Life

The Actor Hugh Laurie once said, “It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready." I agree with this quote and believe that actually, no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, "now is as good a time as any.” I was standing on a big pier 25 feet above the water in my swimsu … [Read more...]
