Frankly, I don’t think God asks much when he calls us to walk by faith. It should be easier for me to trust Him than to trust myself.
At least you’d think so.
And besides, He promised to work it all out for my good and His glory.
Yet still we struggle.
This blog is all about offering a place where we can speak the truth in love to become better FaithWalkers both in the church and throughout all of life and culture.
In addition to helping people like you live a story worth telling, I’m the Founder and Chief Story Architect of StoryBuilders, a creative group empowering individuals and organizations to tell their stories well and share them with the world.
I write books, both my own and in collaboration with others. A few recent titles include A Story Worth Telling, You Will Be Made to Care, Drain the Swamp, Not a Daycare, Big Problems. Bigger God., and numerous leadership, faith, and business titles.
I am a founding partner of Ziglar Family and co-founder of Thrive: A Ziglar Family Community. When I’m not speaking, writing, and leading my business team, I’m hanging out with my family, getting creative in the gardens, or getting my creative juices flowing at my magical second home–Walt Disney World.

More about My Story
For those who care about such things, I hold degrees in English and History from Cleveland State University and an M.B.A. from the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University.
I served a few years as a pastor and a took a tour as a seminarian for good measure.
I led a thriving K-12 Christian school near Cleveland, OH, for twelve years, serving as principal while developing teachers, students, and curriculum toward a fuller Biblical worldview.
That was before God called me to focus on my strengths as a writer and communicator and serve as a Kingdom catalyst for his church-at-large. You can learn more about that journey of faith here.
Because I believe faith connects with all of life, both private and public, I am privileged to serve as the Junior Scholar of Cultural Theology and Director of Development for The Center for Cultural Leadership.
