Monday Morning Boost: Gaining the Red Edge

Monday Morning Boost: Gaining the Red Edge

“Once upon a time, in a land far, far away…” Not many stories start out this way anymore. Nor do they end… “And they lived happily ever after.” Still, every person has a story within themselves. It’s the story of who we are, what we think, and future we will create. Our individual story, that’s totally our own, is one of the most important and one of the most powerful parts of our life. While your story may have similarities…

Monday Morning Boost: Much To Be Thankful For

I’m a new grandpa. I feel pretty darn good. I have an awesome family. I live in Cache Valley, my most beautiful place on earth. I have a lot to be thankful for! Life has been incredibly good to me.

Monday Morning Boost: Did They Fight In Vain?

Monday Morning Boost: Did They Fight In Vain?

It was once asked of Medal of Honor soldier Alvin York, at the Tomb of the Unknown, if war still exists did those who fought in the “War to End all Wars” fight in vain?   His answer, given in 1941, bears consideration today when we find ourselves “fighting eternally” for these intangible principles we call “liberty and freedom and democracy.” “People who ask us that question, ‘What did it get you?’ forget one thing. True, we fought the last war…

Gain the Red Edge: Run to Remember Veterans

Gain the Red Edge: Run to Remember Veterans

Remembering those who have fought for our country who are now struggling with the personal mental battle back home is a great reason to stand in the rain. It’s also a great way to #GainTheRedEdge. Last Saturday I joined with Phillip Redlinger and Dan Durham for the Run To Remember charity 5k to raise funds for the Cache Valley Veterans Association and Veteran Service Dogs. The Run to Remember was in honor of Army veteran James Lewis of Smithfield who was killed by Suicide December 26, 2015. While…

Monday Morning Boost: The Stories We Tell Ourself

Monday Morning Boost: The Stories We Tell Ourself

The story we consistently tell ourselves, and the story we consistently listen to, will be the story that will most consistently come true in our life. Our mind has the remarkable and beautiful ability to create that which we consistently feed it. “The brain is the grand conductor of the symphony of our selves,” as neuropsychologist Jennifer Wolkin describes it. “The brain leads mind and body, and the brain heeds mind and body. The brain plays a role in every thought,…

Gain the Red Edge: Trapped Inspiration

Gain the Red Edge: Trapped Inspiration

Some of the best creative inspiration can happen during the midnight hours when our mind is open to the weirdness of dreams, the inspiration of Heaven, and our brain’s natural ability to create is working overtime. That’s a great way to Gain the Red Edge. Today’s inspiration was none of that. Today’s inspiration came very quickly and not during the midnight hours. It was inspired by the lyrical words of singer, songwriter and author Casey Stark. I don’t fancy myself a…

Halloween Wacky to Gain the Red Edge

Halloween Wacky to Gain the Red Edge

Trying something a little wacky and offbeat is a great way to Gain the Red Edge. That’s why we love Halloween so much. We dress up like our alter-ego, our want to be hero, or in most cases, just something totally crazy and off the wall! Just check out the picture. That’s me hanging out with Jimmy Birman (aka Clark Kent) and some of the staff at Stevens-Henager College in Logan. And if that ain’t living proof pardner, I don’t…

Monday Morning Boost: Magical Fall Moments

Monday Morning Boost: Magical Fall Moments

Magical moments happen when we pause and let the beauty of life infuse into our soul. Such a magical moment happened Saturday as I raked the leaves in our front yard into a huge pile underneath our 20 year old silver maple tree. I was absent-mindedly going through the task at hand while listening to a podcast with headphones in. The silver maple continued to gently rain down her bounteous leaves as I raked, starting anew to cover the fading green grass…

By Small Means, Greatness Comes to Gain the Red Edge

By Small Means, Greatness Comes to Gain the Red Edge

The Lord teaches we can be the means He accomplishes great things. “And thus we see that by small means the Lord can bring about great things” (1 Nephi 16:29, Book of Mormon). We are each one of those small means. Every moment we have the incredible privilege of using our agency to consciously choose to take action and make a difference. Let’s make conscious choices to change the world by changing how we think and changing what we do….

Monday Morning Boost: Chasing Our Pot of Gold

Monday Morning Boost: Chasing Our Pot of Gold

The pot of gold lies not at the end of the rainbow, but in the journey of discovering the beauty the storm creates. That’s where we start to Gain the Red Edge. We can put all our efforts into dreaming and fantasizing of the mythical. What will that do for us? Nothing. Or we can create the future. We put every ounce of our effort into creating a vision leading to a change in our thinking. We become inspired to…
