My podcast will be a series of messages to encourage individuals to Keep Going and not give up in life. They are messages of encouragement, inspiration and transformation. The podcast is primarily a derivative of the Keep Going messages found in my book, "Keep Going...Because Life Goes On.
A World In Need Of Love: Love and Relationships
This is the month of February as you know and people everywhere will be celebrating with expressions of love demonstrated in different ways from, candy, roses and other flowers, dinners, gifts and so many other ways. Excitement is brewing for many because of this special day called Valentine’s Day! It has been called the most romantic day of the year. And even if romance is not currently in your picture, Valentine day is a day and opportunity to express love in all of our relationships.
Life is so much better when we live with an attitude of love in our hearts. We are relational beings and our innate desire is to love and be loved. Unfortunately, relationships sometimes suffer because of the inability of some to express love and even to receive it. However, your relationships can change for the better when you learn how to show love to others. And when Love is in the air, we can Keep Going!
A World In Need Of Love: Love for One Another

Start The New Year Believing Good
This week's podcast will encourage you to start the New Year Believing Good!
We are living in a time where there is much focus on believing in oneself. We hear it in our professions, motivational speakers, in social media and just society in general placing much emphasis on if you want to achieve, you must first believe that you can. And yes, it is important that we we believe in ourselves. It is important if we are to grow, achieve and succeed in this life. Believing in ourselves strengthens us to overcome challenges and obstacles. It helps to set goals and meet and exceed those goals. Believing in ourselves helps to overcome our fears, our negative thoughts and talk that we harbor in our minds.
However, it is so important to remember that it is God who gives us the grace to grow, achieve and believe. He gives us the skillset to achieve, to overcome adversities, to accomplish the impossible. Yes, it is God who gives us the ability to Believe Good because through His Son, Jesus, He has given us His word to live by and it is…” in Him that we live and move and have our being,” as it says in Acts 17:28. We have fellowship and relationship with Him. He is our Source and all of who we are and become, are based on our belief in Him and because of that, we can Believe Good and be able to Keep Going.
Start The New Year Speaking Good
This is a new year! Another opportunity to get off on a “good foot,” as the saying goes. Our last podcast message was titled, “Start the New Year Thinking Good.” The message today will help us to, “Start the New Year Speaking Good.”
How do you speak to yourself? Is it negative or is it positive? Are your words making you better? What kind of conversations are you having with yourself?
How do you speak to others? Is it with kindness? With love? Are you communicating encouragement?
And lastly, but most important, how do you speak to God? Are you speaking with complaints or thanksgiving? Are you speaking about what is lacking or are you praising for His goodness?
This podcast will provide encouragement to start this year speaking good to yourself, to others and most importantly, to God. And it will help you Keep Going through this New Year of 2024!
Start The New Year Thinking Good
As we look back on 2023, we want to make sure that we are thankful in all circumstances because that is the will of God. We have so much to be grateful for. God kept us throughout the year or 2023 and allowed us to see 2024.
So the question is now, how do I want to start this New Year off? Hopefully, you left behind the things that were not serving you or anyone else and now you want to soar into this New Year. And you can, simply by Starting the Year Thinking Good.
You have heard me say that everything starts with your thoughts. Our journey in this life is for the most part a collection of the thoughts we have created and thoughts that continue to direct our paths. Proverbs 23:7 tells us that “as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
So as we move into this New Year, what better way to start it than to take some time to examine or re-examine how we are thinking. This podcast will focus on Thinking Good. Good thoughts that will catapult your life so that you can live the abundant life Christ has promised, so that you can Keep Going!
Leave This Behind: ANXIETY
Is anxiety crippling your life? Are you allowing it to rob you of the joy God has promised that we could have? Are you anxious about what is happening in this world? In your personal life? Do you worry about what will happen tomorrow to the point you cannot enjoy today? You can't be present in the moment?
This podcast message today is going to encourage you to leave anxiety behind and not carry it into 2024. It might have been a constant companion in 2023, but you can rid yourself of it just by making a shift in your thinking. You can think yourself happy! Anxiety is not your friend. It can be debilitating.
Choose to be free of anxiety in this new year. Learn to be present in the moment so that you can, Keep Going!
