Welcome to Ascent of the Mind! If you are looking to open and expand your mind to new possibilities…to gain clarity of thought and develop a higher awareness of your Christian faith…then you have come to the right place. This may be the beginning of an exciting and adventurous journey that will lead to living life with a deep sense of clarity, meaning and purpose.
In 2000 I started to take inventory of my life…my marriage, family, friends, career, home, and country I live in. Reflecting on my life I realized that I was a blessed man… I had everything a man could want to be happy and fulfilled. I asked myself Why? Why me? Why have I been blessed? I certainly have not done anything special…I’m just an ordinary man.
As a Christian, I believed in God but that is where it started and ended. I was not a person of prayer and didn’t understand the “relationship with Christ” concept, and I certainly didn’t have any knowledge and understanding of my Christian faith. I thought to myself…God has been good to me, He has blessed me with my heart’s desire…He has taken many steps towards me even though I didn’t deserve it….and then I asked myself two questions; How many steps have I taken towards God? What have I done for Him? I was ashamed of my answers.
In my heart I knew that I didn’t want to stay on the sidelines anymore and just watch God pour His blessings into my life, I wanted to respond…to say thank you, not just with my words but with the way I live my life. I’ve heard it said, Life is a gift from God…the way you live your life is your gift to God. People seek God for different reasons and from different perspectives, some seek Him from experiencing suffering and pain in their lives, others feel a sense of emptiness and are searching for answers…for me it was gratitude.
I made a decision to take a step closer to God and be intentional in my search for a deeper understanding of my Christian faith. I knew that I had a long way to go before I gained a higher awareness but I was in it for the long run and was determined to take the journey in pursuit of knowledge, clarity, meaning, and purpose.
Looking back to the beginning of my journey, I had no clue of what I was about to embark on…I had no idea how my life would transform. Little did I know that in discovering my Christian faith I would gain a higher awareness of how life was designed to be lived. Discovering my Christian faith has been a treasure that has transformed my life beyond my imagination…it has expanded my mind to think with clarity, enlarged my heart to act with courage, and live an intentional life with drive, passion and purpose.
In Search for Meaning and Purpose
In today’s digital world, with a few clicks we can access an abundance of information on any given topic, at anytime, anywhere in the globe. With so many options and information available, we have to ask ourselves a few important questions…how much and what type of information are we consuming? Do we need to go on an “information diet”? Should we be selective and intentional about what we allow into our minds?
The mind is extremely powerful…it is the Command Center, what we allow into our mind and think about will determine if we win or lose in life. If we use our mind correctly as it was designed, it will move us in the direction of our full potential and transform our life!
In today’s busy, noisy, and high stress world, many things and people compete for our time and attention. Our minds can become cluttered, confused, and overloaded with the demands of life. If we don’t take time to pause and reflect, the clutter can become roadblocks and alter our thinking to live restless and unstable lives.
I want to help people find a way to unclutter their minds and gain clarity of thought so that they can focus on what matters most and realize their full potential as human beings. To realize that the renewing of their minds will bring forth light into their lives, increase self-confidence, gain courage to change their lives, and inspire greatness. To know that they were skillfully created with unique gifts and talents for a purpose and mission, and that they have the capacity to transform their lives and have a positive impact in the world.
Inspire Greatness and Reach Your Full Potential
We become what we think about. Our thoughts trigger our actions…our actions determine our outcomes. If we want to strive for excellence and change our lives me MUST begin with our minds.
This site is designed to connect people with Christian resources that will help them discover a deeper understanding of what it means to be a Christian and how to include spirituality as an integral part of their lives.
