40 Bags in 40 Days

This year lent is from February 14th to April 1st and here in BIG Life we're suggesting a radically different sacrifice.  How about we sacrifice some of the "stuff" piling up in the house? Simplify your life, de-clutter your house, and discover what's truly important. (print your '40 Bags In 40 Days'  list here) Lent

Teams head into the locker room at halftime so they can regroup and refocus for the second half. Here in BIG Life, we do the same.  Our mid-year 'halftime' has three parts:  Assess, Adjust and Attitude. Assess In the Army, we had a process called an After Action Review (AAR). After each mission, we took

Celebrating the BIG Life of Catina

The eulogy of a young, vibrant wife and mother of 4 who impacted millions of lives. I have been charged with the extreme pleasure of sharing the beauty of the life Catina lived.  We are here today because of our common bond ... our Catina.  Yes, OUR Catina. Each of us feel as

BIG Purpose

The purpose of your life is right in front of you. Always has been. Always will be. We can complicate it with grandiose visions, degrees, destinations, and 10 year plans. Or we can simplify down to what the purpose of life is at it’s core. THE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO LIVE IT Not endure

Bitter or Better

We all encounter difficulties. We all deal with injuries. We all face insults. We also...all have a choice. We can choose to be bitter, or be better. When we choose to be bitter, we create more bitterness. When we choose to be better, we stop the spread of bitterness. Choose well... BIG Life

Never Fine Again

Life will never be fine again. Never. It just can't go back there. Things have changed for ever. It's not fine. For every good thing God offers us, the enemy offer a counterfeit. That counterfeit looks remarkably similar to the great thing that God has offered us, but the counterfeit is always easier. Where have

Goal Setting (Take Two)

It happens every year. We watch the big hopes and excitement of January 1st dwindle into the let down of January 31st. We were sure this year would be different. But somewhere along the way we face planted right off the side of that wagon. Where did it happen for you? Was it that one

Love Me

When you sit, you instinctively fold your arms across your stomach. When you see a photo of yourself, you critique. When you step on the scale, you wish you were less. When you compare, you wish you were more. We have set standards of perfection and we never measure up to the ruler which we

Carrots, eggs and coffee beans. No, we’re not talking about our breakfast menu. We’re talking about environment, and how we respond to it. Take carrots, eggs and coffee and place each in the same adverse environment of boiling water and you’ll see 3 very different responses. The carrot goes in strong, hard and unrelenting. However,
