Answer the Call

In order to be your true self, you will have to step into the unknown.


Listen to my song “Take the Road Less Traveled” on YouTube by clicking HERE.


Matthew 7:14

“How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.”


Jesus gives us one of the keys to happiness.

To enter a narrow gate or make your way down a constricted road, you have to unload all the stuff you thought you needed.

Otherwise, you won’t be able to fit through the gate or maneuver your way on the constricted road.

What is that deep, inner yearning asking you to do?

You will likely be asked to let go of a lot of attachments, a lot of things that the world said you had to have.

It’ll tell you that you have to make some changes, possibly drastic ones.

That inner yearning led me to pursue a Master’s degree in Religious and Pastoral Studies and to write songs.

At the time, I had no idea where this new twisting and dark path was taking me.

Several years later, it led me to quit the only career I ever had as a radio news anchor and reporter.

There comes a time when you have to let go of what makes worldly sense in order to follow your heart.

As I look back now on all that has transpired, I am overwhelmed by the abundance of life I have experienced.

The blessings abound. (Click HERE to read more.)

Let Love lead you.

It’s the only path to living as your true self.
