The Leadership Bible: Becoming a Leader

The Leadership Bible: Becoming a Leader

The Leadership Bible: Becoming a Leader Let us pause and reflect on our lives for a moment: Who are you? What defines you? If our job or title was taken away would we still be significant? Does our salary define our significance or do we measure significance by the lives we touch? My friends God has made us unique. He has a special purpose for each one of his children. If we believe that we cannot make a difference or […]

Everyone Goes Home-Will your family be there?

Everyone Goes Home-Will your family be there?

Everyone Goes Home-Will your family be there? The fire service is an occupation like none other. It is one of brotherhood, sacrifice, and courage. It is a second family that we are grafted into the day we become a firefighter. As a firefighter we work many hours acquiring our necessary certifications, degrees, and work hard to maintain a level of combat readiness mentally and physically. A firefighter who is truly passionate about their calling possesses the ability to influence, change, […]

Leadership- Struggling with the one

Leadership- Struggling with the one

Have you ever struggled with someone? Change happens slow… Have you ever given of yourself, prayed earnestly, encouraged them and sacrificed for their benefit but they seemed to ignore or disregard all of your efforts? How did this make you feel? Disrespected? Hurt? Bitter? Did you give up on them? Stop for a moment and think back to a time in our own life when we were headed down the wrong path. Did anyone try to stop us? Did anyone […]

#Brotherhood-Never Off Duty!

#Brotherhood-Never Off Duty!

Consider this scenario: You are about to sit down for a well-earned rest after a long shift at the station. You have very little free time and have been looking forward to this moment. Then the phone rings… It is a fellow firefighter that you have been counseling. He is in trouble, and wants to talk to you. You hesitate at first but then you remember all of the times that someone stopped along the way to help you. You […]

Broken road? You can still come home!

Broken road? You can still come home!

While reading the story of the prodigal son to my four year old daughter I had to pause for a moment as I felt God speak to my heart. The story tells us the younger of two sons who tires of the harsh labor of farm life and goes to his father asking for his share of the inheritance now. The father is sad, yet grants his son’s request. The son goes and spends all that he has on wild […]

The #Leadership Bible-The Journey Begins

The Leadership Bible by Andy Starnes-Chapter 2: The Leadership Journey As we begin our leadership journey we must understand the great responsibility and privilege we are about to assume. We have stepped up to an awesome and amazing opportunity! To lead others in the ‘way they should go’ (Proverbs 22:6) and impact lives for the future of this world and the world to come. Make no mistake, this is no easy task and it will not be a smooth paved […]

Practicing a Daily Size-up

Practicing a Daily Size-up

As Firefighters, we transmit a size-up at every incident. When we face down the difficulties of life let us do the same through Prayer. 1 Kings 8:28 Yet give attention to your servant’s prayer and his plea for mercy, Lord my God. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day. As firefighters call for resources, the Incident Commander responds with resources ready to help. As we call upon God with our requests, […]

Controlling the Door to your heart

Controlling the Door to your heart

Door Control-A door that no one can close: In the fire service today, it is alive with research, development, and forward thinking leaders helping to bring positive change to the our world. One such topic is Anti-Ventilation. By controlling the fires air flow we thereby control it’s growth. As firefighters, we often start off our fire service journey as free-burning “fuel regulated” fires that seem inextinguishable. But then life happens: Our passion for what we do becomes choked down by […]

#Firefighters Do not grow weary!

#Firefighters Do not grow weary!

#Firefighters -Do not grow weary! “So take a new grip with your tired hands, stand firm on your shaky legs, and mark out a straight, smooth path for your feet so that those who follow you, though weak and lame, will not fall and hurt themselves but become strong.” (Hebrews 12: 12) Those that have been in the fire service a few years understand the weariness that can easily overtake a firefighter’s heart. This year, we have already lost too […]

Firefighters Have You Ever Doubted?

Have you ever doubted? “Faith is the confidence that we hope for will actually happen; It gives us assurance about the things we cannot see” (Hebrews 11:1)   Have you ever doubted? Have you ever lost hope? Have you ever felt that God wasn’t listening to your prayers? If you have, there is good news for you… You are not alone. In life, have you asked God for help and hoped He would come through instead having complete faith that He would? […]
