  • Rhett Smith 92: What Are You Holding Onto, That Is Holding You Back?

  • I have shared in previous episodes that the journey through Lent has been one of the most helpful things I have done for my faith. And as we finished Lent this last week, culminating in Easter yesterday, I wanted to take a few moments to reflect on the next steps. As we work on embracing and experiencing the resurrected and new life that Easter represents, what are our next steps? One of the[...]
  • Rhett Smith 91: Creating Space for Silence During Lent

  • We live in a culture that continually inundates us with noise. That noise comes in all kinds of forms. Advertising, entertainment, technology, etc. Sometimes we are passive observers of it as we have little control over what billboards are placed in front of us as we drive down the road. Other times we are active consumers, spending inordinate amount of times on our phones playing games and engagi[...]

In fact, it's often the person or couple that you expect least likely to have to deal with an affair, is the couple[...]
  • Rhett Smith 83: A Wholistic Paradigm for New Year Goal Setting

  • I decided to take about a 6 week break from the podcast to focus on my work and family as we entered into a very busy holiday season. It was good to take a break from the podcast as I focused on the New Year ahead. I'm not sure what the podcast will look like in 2017, but I do know there will be one. I would really love to move to more of a guest format, but it's pretty challenging to line up a[...]
  • Book Reading in 2016

  • So I took a totally opposite approach to book reading in 2016 than I have in years past, and I'm going to take it into 2017 as well. And in 2017 I plan on re-reading a lot more of the authors and books that I love. In the past 17 years I have primarily read theology, philosophy and psychology books...and if I read literature, it was mainly what was considered classical literature. I usually end[...]
