When I was in college I was asked by a professor a very poignant question: if you could have one great year, full of awards or fame and recognition, or a lifetime filled with good, firm, consistent performances, what would you choose? I naively interpreted it as a professor looking at a student actor and.. read more →

Hypocrite. This was a word regularly used in youth groups around the time I was growing up to describe the way we developed different faces for the different crowds we were around at the time. You acted a certain way based on where you were, who you were with and what situation surrounded you. It.. read more →

I am sure we are all familiar with the old saying ‘Garbage in-Garbage out’.  It is a phrase quoted to us as young people while we are growing up regarding how we choose to spend our time, what we choose to enjoy and even the friends we choose to associate with.  In a nutshell, it.. read more →

Thank you…Other than ‘I love you’ it is probably the most underutilized yet necessary phrase in the English language. It is this very phrase that I make a point to share with youth workers every time I get a chance to speak publicly to them. I do this because I get it. I do this.. read more →

Lt. Olivia Munn Leilani is a grandmother, but you would never guess it because she looks 30.  Actually, I’m pretty sure she isn’t much older than 30.  She has the most beautiful grandchildren, and they are fixtures at our corps – they are the kind of kids who are here Sunday through Friday, and they.. read more →
