What Happens When You Risk it All to Live by Faith?
Donald Miller
By Donald Miller

I’m big on vision. I believe people are more healthy when they are heading somewhere. One of the main questions I ask people is, “What do you want to do with your life?” If a person has a solid answer to that, I know they are more likely to be healthy. And if they don’t, I love to sit and dream with them about whatever it is that lights them up. Often, there’s healing in the simple act of dreaming.

So recently, I began to ask myself the same question. What do I want to do with my life? And my answer was very clear. I wanted to build a home fit for a family, a tree-house office out back, and an upscale barn that could house coaching sessions for teams along with house concerts for artists.

I want you to light a burner on the stove, to chop and stir and season with love and abandon. Gather the people you love around your table and feed them with love and honesty and [...]

An Incredible Reminder of How Short Life Really Is
Donald Miller
By Donald Miller

I’ve always been fascinated by that verse in the book of James that says our lives pass like a vapor. That’s a realization hard to internalize. I believe life is eternal, but I don’t believe we have a whole lot of time in this phase, the walk around on earth phase. I wish I could spend less time feeling the urgency of things that aren’t actually urgent and more time exchanging meaning with those people and causes that matter.

The Bible also speaks of the wisdom of numbering our days.

I’m just back from a beautiful wedding in Southern California. What I love about weddings and funerals is they remind us, in very different ways, about [...]
