Pam and Bill, you have become known for creating SIMPLE SKILLS that lead to healthier living and more successful relationships. Why the SIMPLE focus?

One of life’s great mysteries is that complex issues can be addressed with Simple Skills. When the Israelites asked, “How can we live in a way that is pleasing to God?” Moses was given the 10 Commandments. Jesus stunned people with His authoritative simplicity in such challenges as the Simple Skills golden ruleGolden Rule, “Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.” (Luke 6:31) Throughout the Bible we see God’s desire for our lives summed up in simple directions:

  • One thing I ask from the Lord . . . (Ps 27:4)
  • Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack . . . (Mark 10:21)
  • I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do . . .  (Phil 3:13)

We want to spend 7 days in October with you making life simpler for all of us. From October 12 – October 18 we will send you ONE SIMPLE TIP and ONE SIMPLE TOOL each day, if you sign up for the Simple Skill Celebration.

SIMPLY STICKY

There is power in having a SINGULAR FOCUS brought about by simple questions:

“What one change would improve your outlook?”
“What one habit would you like to develop?”
“What one skill would help you live more effectively this year?”

Last week we challenged our social media connections (ezine/ facebook/ twitter) to answer the following question:  What one thing do you believe God would like you to DO before the end of the year?

end of 90 day personal professional simple
We are all putting our answer on a sticky note and placing it where we can see it every day (a mirror, desk, refrigerator or dash board). It’s simple. It’s sticky. It keeps us focused on success!

We are committed to pray for every one of you who posts your sticky note on our Facebook page because we know it will encourage all of us if we share the journey together.

How important is it to be proud of our sons?

It is fascinating to watch the interaction of God the Father and God the Son. When Jesus was baptized, the Father’s voice echoed from heaven saying, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” (Mark 1:11) At the transfiguration, the Father spoke up again and said, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!” (Matthew 17:5)

What a powerful example of how important it is for us to express the value, potential and stature of our young men. Having ministered to men and their families for over 25 years, I can tell you that one of the phrases I have heard most often is, “I wish my dad would just say . . . I am proud of you . . . I believe in you . . . I have confidence in you . . .” Those who have been endorsed by their dads tend to do well. Those who have been rejected or demeaned by their dads tend to struggle.

Mark Hughes, Pastor of the Church of the Rock in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada has become a good friend. I recently had the opportunity to be on the speaking team with him at a Promise Keepers event. He told the following story about dads who were proud of their kids.

4 grown men were talking one day when one of them said, “You would be so proud of my son. He is a minister and everyone calls him, ‘Reverend.’”

The second gentlemen said, “That is nothing. My son is a Bishop and everyone calls him, ‘The Most Reverend.’”

The third man jumped in, “Well, that is nothing. My son is the Pope and the whole world calls him, ‘Your holiness.’”

Finally, the fourth gentlemen added, ‘I think I have you all beat on this one. My son is 7 foot 2 inches tall and weighs 350 pounds. When he walks in the room everyone says, “Oh My God!’”

God is grooming young men to be leaders, influencers and builders. The more confidence, training and support they can get will help them to become men who will lead their generation in righteousness and wisdom. Tell the young men in your sphere of influence that you believe in them and next time you see your son, tell him you are proud of him.
