Leadership 101: Three Tips for Finding Leaders

  I have gotten to work with some great leaders such as Presidents Clyde Cook and Barry Corey from Biola University, Berkeley law professor Phillip E. Johnson, and fine deans like Doris Warren, Matt Boyleston, and Chris Hammons of HBU. I have a chance to watch the genius of Provost Robert Stacey of The Saint Constantine School [Read More...]

Educaton and Integrity

Education is possible, but not if we lack integrity. Isn’t it obvious that we need integrity in education? Don’t we need integrity everywhere? Being against a lack of integrity seems as fatuous as the position of the pastor my family knew who summed up a sermon as being “about sin.” When asked to summarize his [Read More...]

Liberal Arts Education Needs Brave Defenders

Civilization is hard to build and easy to lose. Without courage and conviction, much we now take for granted, peace, relative liberty, and civility will be lost. One mark of the health of a civilization is the value it gives the liberal arts. At every level of education from kindergarten to college, we need the [Read More...]

Great Leaders: Thankful for the Virtues of Seven Women

We need leaders. Talent we can find, but good leaders have talent with character. I have been blessed to be surrounded at all points in my career and education with leaders, listing seven men was difficult enough, but choosing seven women was nearly impossible. Having a mother and a wife who lead made this list [Read More...]

Cleanup the University: Starting with Us

At dear old State U, you might find a Christian engineering professor, carefully quiet, and more than one Christian coach on the playing fields, but you will be hard pressed to find the views of the world’s two billion Christians elsewhere. Much of undergraduate education, at even our best schools, is not worth the money [Read More...]

A School for Humans, not Snowflakes

There are three things for which I hope I would die: God, country, and family, but there are three basic ideas that no free woman or man should betray if they work in education. Maybe I would not die for these ideas, but I would never work for a school that betrayed those ideals because such [Read More...]

Let’s Fix the University

Yale does research magnificently and prepares graduates for the present upper class. University of Missouri does research well and prepares graduates to work for Yale graduates in the present upper class. Both schools are broken and by imitating them, Christian colleges are not always better. Google American university in the news and you will get [Read More...]

On Being Humble

For each of our (now adult) children, we had a “lesson.” For one it was: it is more important to be beautiful on the inside than the outside. So powerful was this lesson that this child became staggeringly beautiful on the inside and the outside. For another child, one lesson was: If I am humble, [Read More...]

A Vision is Life

Vince Lombardi inherited a losing team with losing players and made that team one of the best football teams that ever existed. He transformed “losers” into winners. However, when he left, the Packers confused his plans and his methods with his vision. They imitated Lombardi long after the methods and means were contrary to Lombardi’s [Read More...]

Avoid the Weird: Why Conservatives Should Stay as Mainstream as Possible

Once I went to a Christian event with a friend and realized: “We are weird and not in a good way.” Our problem was not holiness, but a “look” that fit a culture unrelated to the mainstream. We stuck out for nothing, but our cussed cluelessness. It was comforting to think: “It would be worse [Read More...]
