ROBERTO VALDEZ RUNS AN AMAZING BUSINESS recycling mattresses here in Fort Collins.

His heart is in serving those who are looking to rebuild their lives after incarceration or drug addiction. In fact, that’s how he got engaged with Spring Back Mattress Recycling in the first place.

He created a new life based on the support and leadership of Christopher Conway, his boss and mentor. I met Christopher as well, a sincere man who’s on a mission to serve the community.

MidiCi BRANDS ITSELF AS “The Neapolitan Pizza Company.” New to Fort Collins, you might be skeptical about whether this town needs another pizza place, no matter how good the food is.

I had a chance this week to be introduced to the owners of this great new MidiCi franchise, opened just three weeks ago.  Frank and Kim Brewster come from Greeley and are passionate about the unique employee culture of this business. Read the rest of this entry »

CHRISTUS RESURREXIT!  Christ is risen!

We need new life in everything: our careers, our health, our families, our businesses.

So it’s good to recognize that this is healthy, necessary, even essential.  But for new life to spring forth, the old has to die off.

Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. — John 12:24

So let’s take this day to recognize what new life God has given us.  A new chance.  A new way of looking at things.

And our own role in the world.

I wish you all a wonderful and sacred Easter season, today and over the coming weeks!

THIS WEEK INCLUDED THE SUDDEN DEATH of two people in my circle of family and friends.

It gets you thinking. And praying.

This is when you realize that the world doesn’t begin and end with your business, your job, your activities.

It’s the kind of wakeup call that happens when you have a heart attack or big cancer scare.

THIS IS AN AMAZING, wonderful day for Christians.  But if you don’t have a particularly Christian business, why is this important?

Because we’re real people.  And our employees.  And customers.

The human things matter.  It’s not like business is a machine we can set in the corner and ignore.

worryMANY YEARS AGO I started using the concept of “Just-In-Time Worrying.”  The basic idea is that there’s an appropriate time to worry about something, but often people make it into a protracted period of unfocused anxiety.

And, with perspective, you might even discover that something isn’t worth worrying about at all.

For me, it’s often a spiritual journey. Read the rest of this entry »

WHEN YOU LIGHT SOMEONE ELSE’S CANDLE, your own flame is not diminished.

How incredibly unusual is that?  If I give you some of my money, I no longer have it.  When I give you my food, I can’t eat it myself.

We’ve built an entire world economy on the beliefs of scarcity, which makes supply and demand powerful forces.

Not everything is that way.

WallisDOCTOR DAN WALLIS IS A CHIROPRACTOR with a huge vision.

He started Elevate Chiropractic just a year ago with a unique approach to health. It gives patients the power and ownership to build and maintain a healthy body, supported with Chiropractic attention to the nervous system.

The deeper grounding for this philosophy is based on Dan’s Christian belief that our bodies and our vitality are gifts from God, and that God intends us to live and function well.

StewardshipTHE WORD “STEWARDSHIP” CROPPED UP in several conversations for me recently, so it seems that God’s asking me to pay attention to the idea.

The word originally came from “servant of the house,” but over time expanded to the role of chief servant.  Well, these days few of us have servants, much less more than one, so why is the concept important?

Because it’s about taking care.  Of the house, of possessions, of the gifts you’ve been given in your life.

This is something each of us needs to do.

CHRIST IS RISEN!  Let us rejoice!

Why’s that important?

Because we’re talking about something much, much bigger than one person’s life.  This is about the course of humanity.

To bring all of us into God’s presence, for all eternity.
