I have been blessed to mentor and train many people over the past 20 years, none more satisfying than my own children.
I am neither impassioned with hope nor emblazoned with fear over the future of our country in respect to DC. I do know however that I have, can, and will continue to encourage, empower, and enable people both young and old to endeavor to reach their God given potential in every area of their lives. That is why I started Unified City Outreach to be a positive voice of paternal encouragement in a world where the family structure has become lost to so many people of all ages.
There are so many brilliant minds, wonderful dreams and success stories that are not tapped into, go unfulfilled, and are never written. This I believe is because so many people have never had the foundations of encouragement and belief in their individual abilities and future potential that come from the agape love of a parental heart.
Philippians 4:13 was a verse my parents engraved upon my heart and mind, no matter what I had someone who believed in me and encouraged me from an early age.
Be an encouragement to those around you, especially the children and youth who are looking to you for guidance and direction. Be a lighthouse to protect them and a lamp to direct them.
