Knowing All You’re Supposed To

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 13, 2018

I don’t know about you, but every now and then, I get hung up on something and struggle to get by it. Sometimes, it’s a theological question, like if God is all good where did evil come from? I spent three months in a funk brought on by that question. When my wife’s sister died…

. . . And What Are You Thinking About Doing?

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 6, 2018

In Bob Goff’s book, Love Does, he makes the case that the traditional accountability partner deal doesn’t work. We lie to others and deceive ourselves, especially when we’re ashamed. We can only hold each other accountable for what we’re willing to share. And the more distant the friendship, the easier it is to be less…

A Three Word Legacy

Posted by Kevin Harris on August 2, 2018

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . I’ve never been much of a funeral guy . . . not that anyone is. The first one I remember was for my father when I was a sophomore in high school. I’ve attended plenty since then, but not until my 40’s…

Are You Teaching One?

One time my daughter did a photography workshop with some famous guy. He hired models, set up his shots, and took pictures. Then he had his mentees photograph the same subjects, critiquing what they did. They did it again. And then again. A couple of days later, she sees me taking a picture of my…

Posted by Kevin Harris on July 26, 2018

As I’ve shared in the past, we’re a baseball family. It is in our genetic makeup . . . my dad played college ball and some of my fondest memories of him involve learning how to catch his infamous knuckleball. However, the World Cup recently captured our attention. Freddie Freeman and Mike Trout jerseys were…

You Win Some, You Learn Some

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 23, 2018

No, that title is not a typo. It’s a line from a country song. We’re used to hearing “you win some and you lose some.” But what if we never lose? What if life isn’t a competition to win or lose, but a race of endurance? What if the challenge is to finish well and…

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 19, 2018

Ask guys about the first thing they remember, and there he’ll be. Somewhere in the picture is their dad. In my first memory, I’m standing in front of the mirror wearing my brand-new white short-sleeved shirt with a big blue and red stripe across the front. First-grade school pictures are today. My dad is combing…

“God Told Me”

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 16, 2018

There’s a little twinge in my spirit when I hear the words “God told me” come out of someone’s mouth (including my own). Did He? Does He? How do you know it was God? What’s our motive for qualifying what we’re about to say with “God told me.” Are we trying to sound ‘super-spiritual’? Do…

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . This September, Susan and I will celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. I’d love to say I remember the small details of that day . . . the flowers, the music. But I would be lying. However, I would be quick to recall…
