What makes you say WOW?

What makes you take a big, deep, breath and say WOW?

For me, it is usually a beautiful sunrise or sunset.

Like this one.

Sunrise in the air

It reminds me that today is a new day. A day full of promise, and hope. It is another chance to do something amazing.

It also reminds me to treasure these gifts.




Sunset in the air

The pictures never do the artwork justice, as it can’t capture the essence of the moment. But, it helps me remember to treasure these beautiful images. It reminds me to be thankful for each day, even if it hasn’t been an easy one.

What makes you say WOW?



Becoming a LifeChanger is free this weekend on Amazon. I’d be honored if you’d share it with your friends. I’ve been overwhelmed with the responses and emails I’ve received from people who are living LifeChanger lives. I’d love to hear from you, too.





Let me hear it!

Life is so busy.

I don’t know how life is for you right now, but I am in another crazy cycle of busy lately. When that happens, I find myself posting less and not getting to interact with people as much. And I don’t like that.

As many of you know, one of the things that really excites me is hearing about what creative projects other people are working on. I love to celebrate it!


So, I’d love to hear from you today.

What are you working on?

What are you dreaming about?

What are you excited about?

What do you want to promote?

What do you need some encouragement to continue?

I would love to hear from you in the comments. Don’t be shy! I am giving you permission to tell us all about YOU today!


Much love, Jamie

I think of you so often.

I think of:

conversations we had

your contagious smile

how you lit up a room with your presence

your perseverance

your honest words

I think of all the lessons you taught me.

These lessons:

Speak from your heart. Always.

Smile. It’s infectious.

Take time to listen to others.


Never give up on people.

Pay it forward.

Treasure every moment, every hour, every day.

Be thankful for everything, even if it’s hard.

Ask for prayer when you need it.

Give yourself completely to others.

Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Surround yourself with amazing people.

Tell your friends and family what you want.

Start on your bucket list.

Celebrate life. No matter what you are going through.

Much love.


Jamie's Signature tag line

Jamie’s Signature tag line

I keep your picture on my bulletin board. It helps me remember to live. It helps me remember to treasure each day I am alive. But, honestly, some days, I don’t do a very good job of remembering. I get irritated, and waste time on things that don’t matter. I get caught up in the mundane day-to-day things instead of celebrating them and being thankful for everything I have. But, somehow, you continue to remind me.

I’ll see a picture of your sweet daughter on Facebook, or I’ll hear your song on the radio, or I’ll think about the project that I know you want me to finish.

And then I remember that life is so short. And we all need to enjoy it more. And I continue to try to spread hope with my words. Just like you did for so many of us.

You didn’t let your disease define your life. You lived life to the fullest and in the process, you taught us how to live.

I am determined to do the same.

Live life to the fullest.

Love well.

Spread hope.

Seeing this video again brought tears, and also joy. Two years later, you continue to inspire and encourage me to live.

Much love, Jamie!

The Road to Personal Growth

Today, I am honored to be guest posting with Michael Nichols’. Michael writes about personal, team, and organizational growth. If you are visting from Michael’s blog, welcome! I look forward to interacting with you.


What has had the biggest impact on your personal growth?

I once heard John Maxwell say that personal growth has been the biggest door opener for him. That statement continues to stick with me.

I have always been a reader, but for a long time I read mainly fiction books. I love a good story! However, for the last five years, I have switched to mainly nonfiction books. Books about leadership, personal development, time management, and building community.

The result has been a significant increase in personal growth. Why? Read more of my guest post here……….

How are you growing personally?

Home is Where Your Heart is

What do you think of when you think of “home”?

Does your childhood home come to mind?

Is it being with family?

Your current house?

For most of my life, when I thought of home, I thought of my childhood home. It was where I grew up. Where I lived until my junior year of college. When my Mom sold that house, my heart hurt. There were so many memories from that house. We moved there when I was three. It was where I felt at home.

As time went on, home became my hometown. Even though my Mom lived in a different place, coming home from college or after moving away, I always loved the thought of going home.

Now that I’m older, I love coming home to my family. I travel for work, and while I love seeing other cities and new places, I also love coming home to my boys. It’s where my heart belongs.

That’s also why I am so excited for my friend Andi and her dream of God’s Whisper farm. She is building it. It is her home, but she wants it to be a place where others feel at home. Where they feel relaxed, calm, and disconnect from the distractions of the world.

Can’t you just visualize the farm from this picture?

A place where you can go to escape the craziness of life.

A place where differences are respected.

A place where you feel loved and valued.

A place of quiet, and space, and nature.

I am so excited to visit Andi’s farm. I dream of taking an outdoor yoga class, campfires, nature walks, and rest.

Andi is living her dream. But she needs our help. She needs us to help her spread the vision of God’s Whisper. To tell our friends about her manifesto. To help her celebrate and build this beautiful farm.

Tomorrow, I’ll give away two copies of Andi’s book, God’s Whisper Manifesto. Just leave a comment below to be entered to win.

I believe in her. I believe in her dream. And I would love it if you would help me spread the message. You can click on the picture above to purchase your own copy, and share it with others. Here’s a great quote you I love.

“The Earth is a gift to us, and we strive to honor it with our lives, our work, our words, and our rest,” @andilit #godswhisper. Tweet that!

What does home feel like to you? What would you want to do if you visited God’s Whisper?
