3 Strategies for a Life-Changing 2015

2015 is warming up in the bullpen and it will soon be throwing heat from the mound.

In that regard, here are 3 strategies to make your 2015 the best it can be.

1. Make a quality decision that you are going to invest in improving your life, your business, and your ministry.

A quality decision is a decision that you will stick to come hell or Hiawatha.

Investing in improving your life, business, and ministry would include attending training events, taking courses, and investing in other educational opportunities.

A life-principle I’ve learned – admittedly later than I wish – is that if you’re unwilling to invest in transformative learning opportunities, everything in your life will remain the same. That goes for your ministry, your financial situation, your business, your relationships, etc.

For years, I embraced the philosophy of “I can’t afford that.” But I discovered, eventually thankfully, that I couldn’t afford NOT to invest in learning how to improve my life, my financial situation, and my ministry.

So today, I regard training, seminars, and courses as necessary investments that I can’t afford to let pass.[Continue Reading…]

An Invitation to Binge!

A quick reminder that my books Jesus Now and From Eternity to Here are deeply discounted on Kindle today (via Cyber Monday).

We just published the 108th episode of the Christ is All podcast. I won’t tell you what the topic is. You can find out yourself when you listen to it (I assume all of you have subscribed by now, except for the newbies to the blog).

Here’s a recent email I received by someone who is in his early 30s that sparked the idea for this blog post:

“Frank, just want you to know that your podcast is changing my life. I’ve binged on all 100+ episodes and they are amazing! I love the variety, the humor, and the different types of music in the beginning. My only regret is that I wish I would have known about it several years ago when I was going through some stuff that you address.”

Two things struck me about this note.[Continue Reading…]

The Life-Changing Power of Courses

Ever since I was in my 20s, I’ve invested in courses. Spiritual-content courses, ministry-content courses, and blogging/writing courses.

Some of them are on cassette tape. Others are on video or audio.

To this day, I still invest in premium courses because of their transforming power.

A course gives you a “deep dive” into a particular subject. One that you can’t get from a book.

It’s the next best thing to being at a live event where intense training happens in person.

Because I’ve experienced the life-transforming power of courses in my own life, I decided to begin creating my own courses.

You see, I have a ton of valuable material in the form of spoken messages, training sessions, conference talks, etc. on audio tape and CD that are simply dying in my archives.

They haven’t been edited nor enhanced, and no one has heard them since they were first delivered years ago.

I’ve facilitated unique “immersion” sessions on Ephesians, Romans, and Colossians along with extended series on different topics related to the deeper journey.

As you know, I’ve given a lot of this material away on my podcast and I plan to continue to do so as long as the podcast keeps getting new subscribers. (There’s a hint embedded there. If you want me to keep uploading new episodes, then spread the word about the podcast. It takes an enormous amount of time to produce each show and I’ve seriously thought about stopping because of that.)[Continue Reading…]

How to End Spiritual Stagnation

The 107th podcast episode just released. It’s called “How to End Spiritual Stagnation.”

This Could Spare You From Life-Long Regret

Regret . . . it’s a horrible thing.

In a moment of stupidity or practical insanity, you do something for which you want to kick yourself, slap yourself, or give yourself an atomic knee drop.

You wish it were a bad dream, a nightmare, but it really happened . . . and you can’t do anything about it.

When I was in my 20s, the Lord would often speak to me through dreams.

Today, only on rare occasion will I receive a dream that I believe is from the Lord.

This morning, I received such a dream. In it, I was supposed to write a blog post on a topic that I’ve never written on or  given much thought to.

So I’m doing that now.[Continue Reading…]

The Song “Bethany” is Now Part of an Album

For those of you who are new to the blog, my most popular book is God’s Favorite Place on Earth. That book is based on a series of messages I delivered in Kentucky in 2012.

Those 3 messages are on my podcast, so you can still listen to them freely. The messages are called “God’s Favorite Place: Part I, II, and III.”

One of the young men who attended the conference — Mikey Sweet — wrote a song based on the messages I delivered that weekend.

You can hear the raw recording of it at the end of the third message, where he performed it live in front of all of us for the very first time.

You’ll want to listen to all the messages to understand the lyrics.

Mikey had written the song in his motel bathroom between conference sessions.

Well, Mikey recently recorded the song professionally and it’s now part of his new album entitled “The North King.”

Go here to get the album and listen to the professional version of “Bethany”

Pressing Into the Kingdom

The 103rd episode of the “Christ is All” podcast has just released.

It’s a message I delivered in October 2010 called Pressing Into the Kingdom. It can also be entitled Holy Violence.

The talk is a practical unfolding and application of these two texts:

“The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presses into it.”

~ Luke 16:16

“From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.”

~ Matthew 11:12

I believe it will stir your heart to pursue the Lord and press into all that He’s made available to you.
