I had just come from singing at a funeral, I was emotionally and mentally exhausted and had some relational drama happening in my life. I called my bestie and said can we go get some comfort food? We went out to eat and she snapped this picture of me at our table. She said, “You […]

Life is so BAD and So GOOD.

February 3, 2024

I sat in a team meeting Monday morning as we gave updates… One teammate is undergoing chemotherapy and was not feeling well enough to attend. Another teammate had a tumor found on his brain and another needs tests for some heart issues. And yet another with a wife who has been dealing with a chronic […]

I’m Still Here

In 2016 I moved to Orlando, leaving all the things I loved, my friends, my family, my church, and my new budding program I created for girls, and I tried to trust the PUSH. The push that comes sometimes in life and you don’t totally understand why, the picture isn’t clear, the future is uncertain, […]

Be Brave

June 12, 2023

A few years back a department at my work contacted me because they wanted someone to speak on compassion. They had seen some of my videos and writing and thought I would have an interesting take on the subject. (You can watch the video I did for their virtual meeting on my YouTube channel. It […]

A Simple Question, a Powerful Solution…

Really Good News…

One out of every two marriages end in the U.S. but we just keep walking our brides to the altar and giving them away, quoting our vows, “til death due you part”, throwing grand parties, showering couples with gifts, employing cake decorators, photographers, videographers and Dj’s, and wishing them the best of luck!

Til Death Due You Part

November 15, 2022

Permission to be happy… Several years ago my family moved across the country to Florida, at the time it was a huge step of faith, as Dr. French did not have a job there. We were going to go and “spy out the land” and he was going to keep his counseling practice and job […]

Permission to be Happy

There has been a drought all summer, as I have run over what used to be Scary Snake Swamp turned into Dry Ground Gorge. All summer the ground has been cracked and dry without a drop of water.  Without water, there are no snakes. As I watched this dry ground this summer it reminded me […]

Sever the Suffering

September 22, 2022

As I spend time with women, friends, and colleagues, I am becoming more and more convinced that our cultural climate is something that should be scrutinized and pushed against and we should make every effort to resist the many temptations and norms thrown at us, why? Because it is so unhealthy and therefore so are […]
