It's An Honor

My first K-LOVE Photo

If you’ve ever looked at the calendar and a little too late realized it’s your mom’s birthday or an anniversary.  It kind of takes your breath away for a minute.

Had one of those take my breath away moments this morning.  I realized today is this one year anniversary of this show.

I remember not sleeping the night before, being so nervous, like the first day of school and you don't know where your locker is.

I find myself overwhelmed with thankfulness today.

Thank you God.  Thank you all for allowing me to be here with you, for allowing me to walk out a dream.

It’s an honor.

Your Legacy


U.S. hurdler Lashinda Demus with her family

The thing about kids.  If you have something specific you want them to do, they have to see you do it too.

I love the song, "Live Like That," from Sidewalk Prophets about leaving behind a legacy of love for your children and grandchildren to continue. The lyrics say,

I want to live like that

And give it all I have

So that everything I say and do

Points to You

I was struck with what that legacy is when I heard U.S. hurdler Lashinda Demus talk about her legacy as a mother, yesterday after winning her heat in the Olympics and advancing to the finals, with her twin 5 year old boys cheering her on in the stands.

She said,  "It's great, I just kind of run because I don't want to let them down.  Even if they don't know now right now, they'll know in the future.  I'm running for the legacy of my family."

What's the legacy you want to leave?
