  • 75 MILLION DOWNLOADS!

    Jun 26 2021

    Today I'm talking about my time at the Spark Christian Podcast Conference in Grapevine Texas this week. I got to hear Tara-Leigh Cobble speak twice and WOW what a story. 

    She (in two years) has 75 million downloads of her Bible Recap podcast. Would I get up the nerve to ask her on my show?

    If you enjoyed this episode, feel free to buy me a coffee.

    Mentioned in this episode The Chosen (it's pretty cool!)

  • Am I Having a Heart Attack?

    May 17 2021

    So on Tuesday, I had to crawl through the back window of my house after locking myself out of my house - wait for it - twice. 

    On Friday I had one of my "Sweating buckets, getting dizzy, can't decide if I'm going to have explosive diarrhea, vomit or passout" sessions. This now has fairly nasty stomach pains. I injured my stomach on Tuesday with a nasty scrape. This is Friday. 

    I wake up a few times during the night. It hurts to move in bed. Each time I wake up, the pain is moving higher up my body. We've gone from belly button, up higher and higher, and now my chest is tight, and I'm having issues taking a deep breath.

    The question and conversations that go through your head when you can't decide if you're having a heart attack or not were not what I had expected. One would think if you thought you were having a heart attack you would call 911. Not me. I know how much an ambulance is, and my Dad was thrifty, and apparently so am I. 

    I am also the son of my Mom who never wanted to be a bother to anyone. She always put others first. 

    The good news is I was not having a heart attack. So what was it? When I asked the mirror it lied. 

    I now think it was a delayed reaction to just beating the crap out of my stomach - twice. That caused the tightness in my chest. The hospital show triggered the sweats (and later the intense pain in my stomach would cause sweats). In the end, I'm not sure. 

    It does make you think when you have to take a breathe and realize that your number might is being called and your time is up. I am not ready or prepared for any of that, and death doesn't care. It's coming if you're ready or not. 

    Kiss everyone you love to kiss and hug. Let those you appreciate know it. You never know when your time is up.

  • Hey There You Are!

    Apr 22 2021

    Today I explain some side effects of 2020. 

    COVID 19 where 19 stands for how many pounds did you gain?

    It turns out 444 lbs is heavy. 

    I may have more deliveries in the future.

    My gut is ruining my aim

    I have carried on a Jackson tradition 

    Sometimes life has to hold a mirror up until you acknowledge it.
