The Dead Sea and Me

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 24, 2018

What in the world could a smelly, salt-filled lake in the Middle East have to do with me and my life? A lot. It’s a great metaphor, illustrating a couple of important principles . . . The Dead Sea is ‘dead’ because the fresh water flowing into it gets stuck. It has nowhere to flow…

Do-Overs

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 20, 2018

Usually, when we say, “I sure wish I could get a ‘do-over’ on that one,” we’re talking about something we’ve screwed up. Something we regret. But maybe it’s time we looked at things we’d do exactly the same way if we got a do-over. Maybe we’re so critical of ourselves that we’ve forgotten about the…

How to Have 100% of Your Prayers Answered

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 17, 2018

I don’t know about you, but sometimes a single Scripture verse trips me up so bad I can’t get by it. It’ll keep cycling and cycling. Eventually, I roll on because I believe the Bible is true and I know God loves me. So, I just leave it . . . but not really. Number…

Standing on the Rock

“The O.C.” is home to some of the best surfing in the continental United States. Decades ago, the Beach Boys and Hollywood helped make these California beaches popular, and the sport of surfing take off.

8 Steps to Living “This Way of Life”

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 6, 2018

It’s so easy to ‘speak Christian’ but not really communicate. When we tell people to follow Jesus, it may feel like we’re telling people to stand in the corner of a round room. Phrases like “Give your life to Christ” and “Surrender to Jesus” describe a decision . . . a specific event, not a…

There Are No Jokes

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 30, 2018

I used to think I could poke fun at people about their foibles. About height, weight, lack of athleticism, mispronounced words, and personal idiosyncrasies. Hey, we’re all big boys, right? We can take it so why not dish it out? I’ve learned that it’s not true. There are no jokes when it comes to peoples’…

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . While listening to a podcast the other morning, I heard a term that stopped me in my tracks . . . assumicide. I am not sure if the speaker made the word up or not, but the idea resonated deeply with me….

The Holy Spirit (Part 2)

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 23, 2018

On Monday, I explained how I’ve experienced the Holy Spirit. I used the analogy of the cellular network and how becoming a Christian activates the SIM card in our spirits, enabling God the Father to speak and listen to His children through the cellular network of the Holy Spirit. So if the Holy Spirit is…
