I’m a storyteller. I’m good at it. When I was a kid, I was the one picked to tell the ghost story before bed because everyone knew I would scare the hell out of David Tayler. His mom would hear his cry make me pack up and go back home for being mean. I smiled the whole way home. Why? Because I painted a picture for that kid that scared him to death. Well now I Read more.
Today as a writer I’m encouraged and focused. I’m making a decision to stop apologizing or making excuses. I wrote this book to help you feel and see what a Moment Making life is all about. To live with daily precision. I got this text from a friend who read my post the other day. If you don’t have friends like this… Go get one. And take it from my friend… Read more.
I tweeted this a few weeks ago…   Let’s make 2014 the year we go to church less and be the church more. — Carlos Whittaker (@loswhit) December 30, 2013     It was 140 characters.

I’ve been 40 for 4 months. Here are 4 things that have made my 40’s better than any decade I’ve ever existed in. 1. I stopped trying to fix my marriage and finally fixed myself.

When I pulled up to Starbucks this morning I was looking for a parking spot and there were none. But I saw a man leaning in a minivan and so I waited.

Then I saw him get into another car and start digging around. “This guy is trying to kill me with my own inpatience” I said out Read more.

I have such jacked up view of the word love. I told that girl I dated that I loved her only to use her. I was told by that scary man when I was 5 that he loved me only to be scarred by him. I told my wife that I loved her only to destroy her. I was told by that pastor that he loved me only to have him stab me Read more.
