Getting Famous Is Not How You Will Change The World
Donald Miller

Since I was a kid I knew what I wanted to do: I wanted to change the world. I didn’t know how, and honestly I didn’t know why, but I wanted to have an impact.

That desire evolved over the years from an identity struggle where, though I would never have admitted it, I really just wanted to be known and important, to a more sincere desire to see peoples lives changed for the better. I’d say I’m still experiencing that evolution. It will always be a percentage game. None of us are pure in our motives. But we keep working all the same.

Our friend Bob has some amazing stories, and this is one of my favorite. In this video Bob shares a story about a little boy named Charlie, who has the courage to stand in the face of scary witchdoctors. Even high standing judges did not have the courage to stand up to this evil. By […]

Carlos Whittaker

I Fear. I’m good at it.

I fear you. I fear me. I fear God. I fear grace. I fear truth. I fear rejection. I fear the unknown.

So you know what I do with that fear?

I turn it into all sorts of ugly things. Mostly I turn it to worry.

How To Handle A Bad Mood At Home

So I’m just getting used to being married. It’s great. And I’m way better at it than I thought I’d be. All the stuff I worried about before getting married turned out for naught. Betsy’s great. And we’re great together.

One thing I’ve had to learn, though, is not to allow my moods to affect the weather in the house.

One Way to Fix Toxic Relationships

I work in Washington, D.C. I have heard it said that Washington is a city full of Senior Class Presidents and first-born children. The exaggerated caricature is that it is a place where power is exalted and people are expendable. Contacts are currency and loyalty has a news-cycle shelf-life. The truth is that Washington, D.C. is just another city full of people – people with hopes, dreams, fears, and a deep desire to be known.

When you see a line of people waiting for the church doors to open, that’s a good sign. That’s what I saw recently at a church in southern Guatemala, almost to the El Salvador border, in a little town called Chiquimulilla.

And they weren’t in line just on Sunday for the worship services. They were there Monday through Saturday, too. They were coming for the water.

Last night I had family over and at the end of a long day we collapsed on the couch to watch a movie.

I searched through pay-per-view to find a movie and happened upon a temporary category in their download section called “Faith and Family Films”…The list was long and pretty good.
