All About Me

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 25, 2018

While I’m sharing my story with some folks, I mention that I only have a few friends from my B.C. days, all the others have developed since. The guy sitting across the table caught my eye. “Why is that?” he asked. This is what came out of my mouth . . . “If you spend…

High-Fiving Out of Your Comfort Zone

Posted by Kevin Harris on May 28, 2018

Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . For those of you who don’t know me . . . I’m an introvert. According to an old Myers-Brigg test, in 1997 I was an extrovert, but I can’t really remember what that felt like so I will go with a more…

After my last post, some of you may be suspicious that my cheese is sliding off my cracker. Today, you may have proof. But here goes . . . For almost 20 years, my wife and I have had a little fish pond beside our home. I feed the fish every morning. I throw the…

A Special Thank You Note

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 4, 2017

Thank you notes can be polarizing. Most of us like to get them but hate to write them. I got the one above from an 8-year-old the other day. His dad was in my mentoring group last year and greatly benefitted from the experience. I assume after he told his son about it, the little…

Why Imagination Matters

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 5, 2016

I’m not a ‘fantasy’ guy. Never finished a Harry Potter book . . . never read or saw The Lord of the Rings trilogy. But when Reggie Joiner explained the connection between imagination and empathy, he got my attention. He said, “Encouraging imaginative thinking in your kids can help them be more empathetic when they…

Your Friend, the Non-Believer

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 4, 2016

If you look around, you probably know people who don’t believe in Jesus. Maybe quite a few. Occasionally, you run into someone that sticks with you . . . someone you’re drawn to and who’s drawn to you. What to do? First, pray. Is this an opportunity God has put in your path? Or is…

A Dead-End Job?

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 28, 2016

I don’t believe God makes mistakes. Even though the job you’re in might feel like a dead end, you’re in that job for a reason. Maybe it’s requiring you to grow parts of yourself you would rather just leave alone. Or maybe you’re being forced into situations where you are having to trust God because…

Lord Willing and the Creek Don’t Rise

Posted by Kevin Harris on July 21, 2016

Have you ever heard the saying, “Lord willing and the creek don’t rise?” It sounds like a line out of a country song . . . a line we throw out casually when someone asks if we’ll see them next week or for dinner tonight. In our ‘take things for granted’ and ‘instant gratification’ society,…

It Ain’t Over . . .

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 13, 2016

Growing up Baptist, I heard a lot of “Just As I Am” sung at the end of church services. The preacher wanted people to walk down the aisle and accept Jesus, a noble goal for sure. He’d keep the service going as long as it took to get someone to the altar. All us evangelicals…

It’s All About Steps!

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 9, 2016

If our motive is to help everyone we know move one step closer to Christ, then everything we do in relationship with another person is evangelism. That’s right! When we invite people to go to dinner, play golf, attend an event . . . even go shopping, and do it with a spiritual motive (i.e….
