Wholehearted

Wholehearted

November 29, 2020

Life can be difficult and sometimes even painful. In response, we search for things to bring us comfort, to help us feel better, to ensure success. But sometimes our choices are not well thought out and thus not very integrated with our highest values. Our choices leave us at odds with living into the best versions of ourselves. This is a dilemma we all share at some or maybe many points along the way.

Take a listen, as we look at the importance of making thoughtful choices and counting the cost of those choices when living a life of faith and seeking to be our best. - Vincent Rife

Facing Our Fears

Facing Our Fears

November 22, 2020

More often than not, its not one thing that happens to us, but rather one thing after another that brings us to a breaking point. COVID is enough to strike fear in our hearts. But it's not just COVID. It's the isolation that comes with it, the depressed economy, the lost jobs, the rising debt, the social injustice, the political strife, the hateful rhetoric, and the extensive divide that only seems to be getting worse by the day. If you put enough pressure in just the right place everyone has a breaking point. We all know this to be true. But what we don't know is what to do about it?

If you could use some help or hope in the places of your greatest fears and deepest pain, we hope you will tune in as we look at and learn the secret of being able to run with endurance until  a breakthrough occurs. - Vincent Rife

The Best of Times & The Worst of Times
No Short Cuts

No Short Cuts

November 1, 2020

We so often value the destination more than we do the journey itself. We like fast and easy because we are intent on getting to where we want to go yesterday. But unfortunately, when it comes to spiritual maturity, there are no short cuts. Developing growth and character takes time, attention, focus, and discipline. But if we give ourselves to the day in and day out pursuit of such we will not only live into the best versions of ourselves, but we will also enjoy the journey along the way. This week we look at what it takes to build a life worth living.

Competing Voices

October 26, 2020

Every day we are inundated with a variety of messages from a multitude of different sources. And many of those messages are quite often in direct conflict with one another. With such a multitude and complexity of voices to contend with, how do we determine which ones to believe or trust, which ones to follow, and which ones to disregard? If you could use a little help sorting out all of the competing voices in your life, listen as we will seek to help you find clarity for your journey and also some joy along the way. - Vincent Rife
