Unexpected Fear – When God Changes Your Gifts

I don’t do nervous. Until recently, I believed that. Then unexpected fear came to visit. It was only a three-minute presentation, but there I was, concerned about what to wear because I didn’t want to walk to the microphone with my pants sweat-clinging to the back of my legs from warm chairs. In other words, I was nervous. Earlier in

Are You Easy to Obey?

There is a direct correlation between the ease of a request and the odds of obedience. Obedience is a gift. When a horse or person obeys you, which emotion is most likely to show up, gratification or gratitude? I know, sometimes the emotion is more like shock. “Hey, Josh, would you go find your little sister?” Your often oblivious fourteen-year-old

Leadership – Horsemanship – Discipleship

I’ve been a leadership junkie for decades. Transitioning from corporate America, consulting, and motivational speaking to horse training wasn’t as difficult as it may seem at first blush, because the rules for success were the same. The move from the horse industry to ministry was a bit more complicated, but I’ve discovered that the method Jesus used to “train up”

Unanswered Prayer? Try Reframing Your Question

Does God answer your questions? I admit, I don’t ask very many questions, but when I do, I usually get an answer. There isn’t a preferred answer because my questions usually ask for guidance or information about weather. One morning I asked and didn’t get an answer. Nada. Nothing. In our ranching days, weather was a big deal. Fertilizer was

12 Stewardship Quotes – God, People, Critters, and Stuff

Ask any horse or dog to describe the greatest gift and you’ll get the same answer; a forever home and the love of someone special. But that’s not always possible. Trainers welcome horses into their barns and send them home. Foster children move in and move on. Lives, health, and financial circumstances change. Whether a horse, child, or automobile stays

The Difference Between Excuses and Explanations

Being excused removes culpability; offering an excuse isn’t the same thing. If my gale-force sneeze catches you directly between the eyes, you may excuse (forgive) me if I was totally caught off guard. I’m guilty as a cat caught with a parakeet feather between her teeth, but I’m far more embarrassed than you are annoyed. What if you’re the victim

From Pressure to Perfect Peace – Horses and Christians

Horses learn from the release of pressure, when intrusions into their experiential space disappear by an action the horse controls. Imagine your horse responding to nothing but your thought, the ultimate result of the soft yield to a rein, leg, or rope. Perfect peace is equal parts habit and relationship. Faith builds when the results are instantaneous and consistent. Every

Quit Comparing Yourself to Others – Focus on the Positive

  How many of you have ever stood on a horse’s back? This picture caught my attention because I can’t do this. The problem isn’t my horses, they’d let me stand on them. I’m the roadblock. “It’s me, I’m the guilty person, the reason my horses aren’t in photos like this one.” It’s easy to compare ourselves to others, usually
