I remember it all well.
Stacey and I sat in a cold sterile office awaiting the doctor and our test results.
We were 20 weeks pregnant with our fourth baby.
We knew there were issues we just hadn’t heard definitively what they were.
Finally it was time to talk with the doctor. It felt like the final results on a reality show only this time Stacey and I were in the show.
DJ is cool.
Before he gave his life to Jesus he’d drive by our church and flip us off every single time.
He’s a great young leader who has dedicated his life to developing other great young leaders.
Do you remember the Hans Christian Anderson story of the Emperor’s New Clothes?
You know, it’s the one about the rich and vain fashionista ruler who wore a new outfit every hour of every day?
Two swindlers came to town claiming to be the best fashion designers of their time. They also claimed to work with the finest cloth ever created.
There was one catch.
Here’s a re-post of a podcast we did a little over a year ago:
My lovely, talented, amazing, and very pregnant wife Stacey joins me on the podcast today.
She is a skilled leader and owner of Elite Performance Dance Camps.
She just wrapped up her 10th year of business and it’s growing more than ever before.
Stacey shares some of her leadership insight with us in the area of empowering others.

I’ve never considered myself an expert on prayer.
For example, one time at a youth camp students were invited to come forward and pray at the altar.
As a student wanting to connect with God through prayer I stepped up and found a place to pray.
After a few moments I felt relaxed and rested; I was totally at peace.
Suddenly there was a tap on my shoulder. “Andy, Andy…” there was an urgency in the hushed whisper that woke me.
I wiped the drool from my mouth as my eyes struggled to adjust to the bright lights.
