How to create and cultivate friendships as an adult?
With so many demands on our time, including jobs, school and family obligations, sometimes we don’t get to spend time with our friends as much as we’d like. Months and even years can go by without seeing friends who live in the same area. In an age of social media and technology, we can easily become more distant and disconnected.
Check out a new episode of the podcast, where we cover…
• The four different levels/categories of friendship, and how to distinguish between them
• How to let go of a friendship you have outgrown
• How to cultivate existing friendships that you want to maintain
• The best way to reach out to someone new (or an acquaintance) to pursue or deepen a friendship

5 PLACES I WANT TO GO in 2015
– NYC (I would have gone in October, but a race I scheduled there was cancelled)

What is the purpose of life? It is that we should revere the all-powerful God. To revere God means to respect and stand in awe of him because of who he is. Purpose in life starts with whom we know, not what we know or how good we are. It is impossible to fulfill your God-given purpose unless you revere God and give him first place in your life.
Many years ago I read The Purpose-Driven Life and it’s an excellent book to help Christians begin to understand their purpose, why God created us and the reason we exist.
I know why I’m here. Do you? If not, how will you find out?
(Throughout the month, I’m blogging 20 questions from this month’s feature article in O magazine.)
QUESTION 19 – Do I Let Myself Fail Enough?
We’re coming down to the home stretch here with these 20 questions of the month. This question goes hand in hand with allowing yourself to say Yes more often.
