Bad Candy

Back in March of this year we had the privilege to host Tim Hawkins in concert at Northview. He was hilarious and a really great guy to work with. One of his routines revolved around bad candy that people hand out at Halloween. I can so relate. While I never had the wax bottles filled with goo, I did throw away trash bags full of those peanut butter and hair candies.

Whatever your beliefs are of Halloween, I hope you and your family have a fun and safe time. Here in Indiana weather is causing many cities and towns to change the trick or treating times to Friday.

Also, has anyone actually found a razor blade in their candy or is that an urban-legend?


Leading at Home

I spend a lot of time thinking and writing about how to lead at work, however recently, I turned my focus to the home. We showed this video at church as part of our sermon series, “A Journey Home.” The video depicts how words spoken to us as children can have a lasting impact on our lives. Every time I see this video, I get emotional thinking of how easily what I say as a parent can stick with my son. I want to be a great dad, and I don’t have all the answers, but I do know that I have been called to be a leader, not only at in my professional life, but more so in my home. I am doing my best to make sure that if my little guy wants to play, they know that they always come before “Daddy’s Work.”

Take a lesson from this video and make sure your kids know you love them. Make sure that as you lead your teams in your profession, that you’re also pouring yourself into leading at home.
