Raising Our Children Well

Raising Our Children Well

Raising Our Children Well: The greatest lesson I have received in accountability and responsibility has been through the blessing of parenthood. God has shown me so much and continues to do so even through the eyes of a child. I have received my daily devotion while reading my daughter a children’s bible story. I have felt the weight of my own sin when my daughter has looked upon me when I have done wrong. I have realized that God is […]

The Forgotten Ones

The Forgotten Ones

It is a commonly known fact that those that care for others the most often receive the least care or concern in return…   It is commonly known that those who give the most of themselves, who bear their souls, and lift up others in prayer often suffer in silence with their own struggles of sin and pain…   To those who call out from the depths of despair… When you have walked through the darkness of your circumstance… Take […]

The Mission Statement 

The Mission Statement 

The Mission of Bringing Back Brotherhood: Do you have a mission statement? Do you understand what your purpose is? In life, we often need maps to get where we are going yet many choose to journey through life without seeking their true purpose.

In One Moment

In One Moment

Many of us complain through our joys rather than celebrate them… We fail to realize that our lives are but mere moments… And it’s up to us to either live with remorse or cherish them… In one moment, we stand before God at an altar… In one moment, we cannot believe that our marriage has faltered… In one moment, we hold a precious new born child… In one moment, we are signing papers over differences that can’t be reconciled… In […]

The Furnace of Adversity 

The Furnace of Adversity 

The Furnace of Adversity: One who studies leadership will continue to find this scene repeated time and time again throughout history:  Leaders will be attacked. No matter whether the leader is one of integrity or one of falsehood it is a verifiable fact that leaders will be attacked, persecuted, and falsely accused. In fact, the greater the moral integrity or dedication to one’s calling the greater the opposition one can expect.  The greater the achievements for the sake of the […]

Taking off the Helmet

Taking off the Helmet

Taking off the Helmet: In the moments that we serve, we often forget our place… We give, direct, lead, and we make a difference… We solve others problems in a moments notice… But then we go home to our wives, our husbands, and our families… We forget to take off the helmet, to remove our rank, to remember who we truly are… We give orders instead of giving love and support… We demand compliance with no Grace given to them […]

The Loneliness of Leadership

The Loneliness of Leadership

The Loneliness of Leadership: Statistically, there are fewer leaders today due to many reasons but what those who choose not to lead often fail to realize is this: Those who step up and lead are not perfect. Those who choose the lead are not better than anyone else nor think more of themselves; in fact they often struggle with insecurity and doubt more than you know. Those who lead are often maligned, slandered, and opposed by those who would rather […]

The Shareholders Meeting

The Shareholders Meeting

The Shareholders Meeting: In a dimly lit room holding about thirty individuals from various countries, backgrounds, and experience levels all sat conversing their vested interest in a precious commodity. There were questions posed from those transitioning from one point of leadership to another. There were questions asked from those just beginning their journey in investing in this commodity. Thoughts were provoked, hearts were stirred, and the young and the elder sat at the same table without rank or recognition all […]
