    Treasures In the Deep - The "Why" of Your Story

    Treasures In the Deep - The "Why" of Your Story

    The story of Michael Kent and Tiffany Whittier is inspirational all by itself - a black, female parole officer is assigned to a white supremacist parolee, and their interactions causes Michael to turn his life around. However, it is only when you go deeper, to get to to the story behind the story, that you find the true riches that come, not only from their story, but from your own. 

    In this episode, we look at the highlights of the story of Michael and Tiffany, all the while looking into our own heart and our story, and asking "why? what makes my story so special?"

    The Good of Good Food, Part 2

    The Good of Good Food, Part 2

    If there is one thing that is true, it is that good food brings people together. And not just around a table - Good food unites generations, passing down recipes and traditions from parents to children. It also allows friends to share their creations with their loved ones, whether around a table, or through the medium of social media.

    In this episode of Perpetual Good, we continue our conversation with Claude Ellis IV, Founder of BDF Catering and Executive Chef at The Olde Pink House, Savanna Georgia, to hear about his journey into the fantastic world of good food.

    The Good of Good Food Part 1

    The Good of Good Food Part 1

    Be it large gatherings celebrating traditions and cultures, families gathered for a backyard barbeque, or good friends meeting to catch up, you can pretty much count on there being good food.

    Many of us tinker in the kitchen with the same passion as professionals, desiring to deliver a culinary experience to our family and friends, while others take it a step further and turn their passion into their profession.

    In this episode of Perpetual Good, we go on the road, back to our home town to talk to Claude Ellis IV, Founder of BDF Catering and Executive Chef at The Olde Pink House, Savanna Georgia, to hear about his journey into the fantastic world of good food.

    Defying Time and Circumstance

    Defying Time and Circumstance

    Have you ever looked back at your life and thought, "if only I had more time", or "if only that one thing hadn't happened, I would have fulfilled my dream"? Delays, prohibitions, jobs, having kids, etc., all valid reasons why things get placed on the back burner, or get locked away, never to be considered again. There is a proverb that says, "delayed hope makes the heart sick, but fulfilled desire is a tree of life." Delayed and unfulfilled dreams, or circumstances that prevent us from fulfilling who we really are can have a profoundly negative affect on us. 

    What if I told you that neither time nor circumstance are powerful enough to stop us from fulfilling our dreams? While the end result may look different than we originally pictured it, as long as we hold onto those desires, there is a possibility for them to happen. 

    In this episode of Perpetual Good, we will look at 2 people who defied both time and circumstance to see the fulfillment of what was in their heart:


    Angela Alvarez, the most recent winner of the best new artist category at the Latin Grammy's, at 95 years old
    Jason Wang, who overcame a past marred by bad decisions and prison to create FreeWorld, an organization who helps former inmates escape the cycle of prison by providing training and employment with respect and dignity.

    Small Things with Big Impact

    Small Things with Big Impact

    What do bells, basketball and black pens have in common? Very little… not that they have nothing in common, but in all three cases, something very little about each of them resulted in a very memorable or impactful event, even potentially saving the lives of astronauts.

    In this episode, we look at the unlikely savior of the Apollo 11 mission, the start of the Salvation Army Bell Ringers, and a very special basketball team manager, to see how the smallest of things can bring about the largest returns.

    Living a Life of Gratitude - Audio Only

    Living a Life of Gratitude - Audio Only

    It is very easy to allow the hardships of life to take over and make us believe that there is nothing to be thankful for. However, by taking the step to pursue gratitude, our eyes will be opened to all of the things we have to be thankful for.

    In this episode, we look at people who have made the choice to not only start being grateful, but who are living a life of gratitude .

Love it!

Great podcast, it’s entertaining & inspiring.

Mike Dunay ,

So encouraging to her about good things!!

It’s amazing how hearing just one story of goodness let alone many can break away the weight of the countless bad stories we allow to build up on our hearts and minds throughout the day, week, season. There is exponential power in what Kenneth is doing through this podcast. I definitely recommend this listening!!
