Set A Giving Goal

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 28, 2011

Over the first 33 years of my life, I probably gave less than $2000 to the church and charity ….total! But when God showed up in my life, I quickly realized that He owned everything. My career, my wife, my kids, my health….everything. As I started to read the Bible, I was hit with verses…

Better to receive?

My Well-Kept Secret

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 21, 2011

At a gathering the other night, I was asked a question that I’ve never been asked before . . . What do you enjoy about Christmas that no one else knows about? My answer was weird, but I couldn’t lie. I enjoy reflecting. As the end of the year approaches and Christmas softens my heart,…

Sheepdog or Shepherd?

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 16, 2011

When I visited New Zealand a few years ago, I saw a demonstration of the well-trained working sheepdogs who daily move the sheep from place to place there. Incredibly quick and extremely tenacious, the dogs reminded me of some of the bosses I’ve had and, unfortunately, of some of my own leadership early on. I…

Selflessness shines

Years ago, a dear friend encouraged me to invest in someone who could in no way pay me back. It was hard. If you think about it, it’s really hard. I finally went to a nearby nursing home and spent time with some abandoned old men. God showed up. There was nothing those old gents…

Divine Intervention – 6 reasons to rest whether He answers our way or not

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 6, 2011

So when does God intervene in our circumstances?  Can we inspire Him to intervene through desperate prayer? Why is it we pray and pray for an outcome only to have it go the complete other direction? Short answer – I don’t know. Long answer – Here’s my best shot…6 points. 1. Perspective – God sees everything in…

The Joy of Giving Life

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 2, 2011

When I hear those words, I think “He’s going to ask me to donate blood….or an organ!” Not it. The joy I’m speaking of comes from watching a man go “all in” for Jesus Christ and then seeing God redeem his marriage, his children, his business, his relationships. Everything. That’s life for me. Watching God…

Dancing With The Stars

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 30, 2011

After I surrendered to Christ 28 years ago, my wife said, “You’re not dancing any more!” She had seen me constantly striving for the approval of my superiors at work; always seeking the affirmation of our friends; always moving, never still, never content, always driving for something. All my life, I wanted to matter. I…

You Get What You Glorify

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 23, 2011

Have you ever watched as a young girl is “made up” by her mom, being introduced to makeup, rouge, eyeliner and lipstick while still an innocent little girl? Then she’s told how beautiful she is, not because she is, but because she (or her mom) are trying so hard. Have you been to a little…
