Thoughts from Purdue University

On Sunday, I had the honor of seeing my sister-in-law, Chelsee, graduate with a BS Nursing degree from the world's GREATEST college, Purdue University!

One of the speakers at the school's recognition and pinning ceremony mentioned that this was a moment they would never forget.  She stated that many of those in the room were remembering their own moments.  She got that right!  It was all I did the entire time!

On Saturday evening and Sunday morning, I walked around the entire Purdue campus.  The ENTIRE campus.  I had the pleasure of just walking around with my daughter and telling her all the stories.  The story of how Jenn and I met there my first weekend at Purdue.  The story of where they teach people how to slaughter cows (yikes).  The story of riding my bike around campus.  The story of running through the fountain in the engineering mall. 

I lived at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN for four YEARS, and it seemed like it was only four MINUTES!

Here is what is on my mind right now – What are your dreams?  What are your hopes?  What do you wish you could do?  What were you created to do?  What have you been put on earth to do?

Three words for you:  GO  DO  IT!!!

You will never regret doing what you have been created to do!

    I just listened to the message you did at NewSpring back in November (I think) in “The Lord of the Rings” series, and I just wanted to complement you on it. Great job! It really spoke to me. I am one that struggles with motivation. When it comes to finances, I feel like I need to constantly be pushed, and I’m starting to realize that that’s one of the main problems. Anyways, your message (along with your blog posts) are packed with motivation. I’m dubbing you the Tony Robbins of financial well-being. I’m committing to take my finances seriously so my wife and I can seriously pursue God’s desires for us. Thanks for your hard work and keep it up!
