Keys to a FORMIDABLE Life- with guest Sean McCauley PTS

Keys to a FORMIDABLE Life: Pt 1 THE HUMAN IMPRESSION I just walked out of my Sport Therapist’s clinic, Dr. Alim Kara, BSc, DC ( After an intelligent ‘poking’ and ‘prodding’, ‘twisting’ and ‘cracking’, I walked out free moving, pain free and ready for action. I’ve seen quite the number of physicians, specialists and neuro specialists […]

Destroying the Work-Life Balance Idol!
September 19, 2014

In this article, Josh Chalmers points us towards the goal of being as ‘fruitful’ as possible in each season of our lives. Work-life balance is best understood within our greater understanding of our life purpose and God-given destiny. Spiritual fruit (or outcomes) is the same as natural fruit in that we are not always aware of its development!

This is a great read, not only because of the content, but because of who Josh is as a person. Josh is a former college student of ours that is an emerging leader. He models what he writes about and what he teaches. He has a steady and firm passion for his life, his family and his professional life to bear as much fruit as possible to the glory of God.

Question: What is the biggest issue you face in terms of work-life balance?

Blessings and peace,


REFUEL Book In Final Round of Editing!

Dear friends,

This is an exciting time as I put the final touches on one of the biggest ventures I have ever undertaken! “REFUEL- Strengthening Your Soul, Energizing Your Mission” is in the final round of editing and will roll off the press in early 2015! I want to thank everyone at Friesen Press for a very positive experience as a first-time writer.

In just a few short weeks the book will be available on Amazon, GoogleBooks, bookstores and other platforms. I am thrilled to think of the life-changing impact the content is going to have on many lives! 

Also in development is an entire REFUEL KIT that will include everything you need to take the REFUEL experience to more people (sermon series, small group study, small group leader guide, etc.).

More good news: subscribers to, will get special deals as the book before the release date!

I hope that you will partner with me in seeing many people go from empty to full in every area of their lives!


With great anticipation,

Ever get frustrated and impatient with progress in your life and ministry? Ever get impatient when you are not seeing the results/outcomes you want to see? If you are like most people, you can use the boost that the words of Jesus provide in John 15 regarding “abiding in the vine”! Here is a message I spoke on this passage on a ministry tour in British Columbia earlier this year. I have received a lot of great feedback on this & I hope it is a blessing to you!

When the Politically Correct Dance Fails Us

Nov. 17, 2014

Today the world got verified news that another innocent person has perished at the hands of extremists. Does anyone actually believe that talking and doing a politically correct dance will end their violence?

This is not the first time the world has seen a disturbing evil and been forced to choose between action and inaction. Last week, I had the honour of speaking at a Remembrance Day Service in my hometown. My title for the talk was “Freedom Is Not Free”. I spoke of my grandfather getting on a boat in WWII so that innocent people were not overrun. He was injured and discharged, but other comrades were not so ‘lucky’. When people in Europe remember what Canadians did to end the brutality in their nations in those years, they gush with gratefulness.

Most civilized nations today have no desire to resort to force to stop certain movements, but unfortunately for all of us, force is the only language some movements understand.

If you were the leader of a western nation, what would your response be to ISIS, Russian invasion into the Ukraine and other human rights atrocities across the globe?

Three Skills That Increase Your Income

Oct. 22, 2014

The economic climate is shifting more quickly than ever before! The chances are that the skills you learned in college need to be upgraded or replaced entirely. The temptation is to lament this fact, rather than recognizing and responding to the increasing opportunities that are around us.

Today is a great day for creatives and innovators who are vocationally nimble and ask themselves:

  • How can I re-package my old skills for a new market?
  • How can I upgrade my skills?
  • How can I leverage my skills as a veteran in my field of expertise?
  • What new skills can I add to my tool belt?

In this article, two of the three skills (writing & speaking, not writing code!) are cross-disciplinary skills that I have been personally developing over the last few years. I was encouraged that I was on the right track and that I am have increasing opportunities to coach people in those areas.

How might you leverage these skills that increase your income?
