Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Everybody needs a coach at some time in their life.
What good is it to grow up bilingual or even bi-cultural if you don’t know how to live your life?
Jesus is my life coach, mentor and consultant. And I rely on His counsel, via the Bible when it comes to teaching my kids.
Indeed I have not always lived up to the standards that Jesus set for me. But I have always been committed to doing so.
It is often not how we live our lives that matters, but how we try to live our lives.
This mindset does not give us excuse to make mistakes. We still try to do right. We correct our mistakes. We make restitution when possible when we hurt others. In short, we do our best.
I tell my kids, “You don’t have to be the best. Just always try your best.” They do have. And it has paid off.
This past week I spoke at a Christian gathering on Jesus is my life coach, mentor and consultant. It is the first in a series that I will take me and listeners through the Gospel of Mark.
I welcome readers to listen in. And if you are in the San Jose area, please join in.
Thanks for reading.
And, tell me…where do you go for life coach advice?
