The Rust Belt Chronicles is a result of witnessing, watching and learning the habits of the Industrial Age mindset. The years of going from a boom town to perhaps the new (move over Youngstown, Ohio) - "The Rust Belt Capital of the World" in sunny Mansfield, Ohio has taught me not to accept the rerun of "Ground Hog Day" from the rust belt theater.
The mindset isn't limited to the remaining or former factory employees. Over the years, it…

In my post-Olympics withdrawals I got to thinking about this phrase, "no regrets." I suppose I heard it during the 17 days of festivities. Maybe I saw it somewhere else. Doesn't matter.
I posted some reflections on the topic on our website, www.PrepareForRain.com, which was built for us by Missy Stauffer and Anna Cook, of iSimplify. That's the same team that works with Dan Miller on this site. I met Missy last…Continue

My brochure for the 2012 Global Leadership Summit says "The Global Leadership Summit exists to transform Christian leaders around the world with an injection of vision, skill development and inspiration." They were not kidding!
When I first heard about the Summit, I pictured in my mind it was only for pastors or church leaders. That thought stayed with me but it…Continue

I want to share a very moving thing I witnessed this morning in a children’s Sunday School class. But first I hope you’ll bear with me as I provide a little background on the child who is central to this story.
My good friend Wes Hutchins teaches about 12-13 mostly 5th- and 6th graders. Around the round table were Wes’s own kids as well. Sitting next to Wes (always sitting next to Wes) was his very special needs 10-year-old son, Kyle. Though Kyle’s mind is…Continue
Three weeks ago, I realized that while I was holding a steady beat with my time2revive blog, I was still missing something else that God wanted me to do. I wrote a daily message with the intent of helping others and in return, God was using this time to show me so much more! Even as I am currently writing this, I pray that God will continue to use me in a positive light as an encouragement! Let me take you back three weeks ago, where yet another God induced change took place in my…Continue

For my birthday lunch it was my choice of restaurant. Craving Thai food at the time of decision, I picked "The Thai Garden." Upon arrival, we noticed that "The Thai Garden" no longer exists. The sign had been undelicately altered to show that the new name was "Siam Orchid Restaurant."

There is only one thing you can control in this life. You can't control politicians (although you can vote and speak up), you can't control the weather (but you can decide in which climate to live), and you can't control others - but you can control your attitude and you do make a thousand decisions a day on what your attitude…Continue
