Mentoring Mythbusters: Measuring Success

Posted by Kevin Harris on December 3, 2018

Everything about us wants something to measure. Like Pavlov’s dogs, we’re drawn back to the age-old adage “you can’t manage what you don’t measure.” So, I am faithfully measuring what I eat, what I spend, how much time I’m on social media . . . and on and on . . . and on and…

People Are More Committed to Their Own Ideas Than to Yours

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 29, 2018

If you want to get someone behind an idea, help them come to it themselves. They never resist their own ideas but they’ll almost always resist yours. I believe this is why God came up with the idea of placing the Holy Spirit inside us when we accept His offer of forgiveness, redemption, and sonship….

One of His Favorites

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 26, 2018

Mentoring a group of guys for a year is like a roller-coaster ride. Somehow you know it’s going to be good in the end, but you’re just never prepared for all the ups and downs, the shock of the sharp curves and the unexpected drops that literally make you sick for a minute. (At least…

Dayenu

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 22, 2018

A few years back, a friend of mine died unexpectedly, and I was asked to say a few words at his memorial service. The guy was loved by a lot of people, and everyone felt sort of cheated that he’d died relatively young with so much ahead of him. A couple of days before the…

Caught Not Taught

Posted by Kevin Harris on November 19, 2018

You know the scene . . . the one in Home Alone when the McCallister family wakes up and realizes they all slept through their alarms and are about to miss their flight to Paris. The chaos begins . . . Clothes thrown everywhere. Food shoved down throats or not eaten at all. Quick showers….

The Thing Versus the Idea of the Thing

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 15, 2018

Learning to recognize the thing versus the idea of the thing is huge. For years, I kept my eye out for a ’66 yellow GTO like the one I had as a kid. One day, I saw it. It jumped out of my browser and grabbed me. (I can’t remember how I got to eBay Motors.)…

My 12 MVV’s (Most Valuable Verses)

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 12, 2018

When I first started leading Radical Mentoring groups in 2001, I went through the verses I’d marked in my Bible and copied over those that guided my life. I labeled each one with a theme or keyword to help me remember that verse ‘in the moment.’ Over the years, associating verses with a keyword has…

Feeling Good About Ourselves

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 8, 2018

Ok, here’s one to store in your head and your heart . . . We feel good about ourselves when we do the right thing. It just happens. When we push ourselves to fill out a totally truthful expense report or tax return, it happens. When we volunteer somewhere, giving our time and energy to…

Mentoring Mythbusters: Not Enough Bible

Posted by Kevin Harris on November 5, 2018

When we give presentations or speak at conferences, we like to leave time for Q&A. There are a few questions we usually get asked, including . . . “Where is the Bible in Radical Mentoring?” I understand and appreciate this question because we are asking men and churches to take part in something that doesn’t…

Connect with Her Feelings

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 1, 2018

Listening to your wife takes more than just hearing what she’s saying. One of the most helpless feelings in the world is for your wife to say “I just don’t feel like I have a voice.” Especially after you’ve explained a situation or decision to her for the third time and you’re sure you’ve listened…
