Life is an Adventure & Kindness is a Superpower

Through my ongoing adventures, I've learned that kindness is a superpower, compassion can heal, and the hope that's found through faith in Jesus Christ leads to limitless pathways and endless possibilities.  Check out Travelogue  for some of my most recent discoveries. and favorite quotes.  Tech Adventures where you'll find some of my favorite Tech Initiatives including my first mobile app endeavor, AOP! Also,  Around the World  is where I'm sharing some of favorite memories from my ongoing global adventures.


Many know of me from my more than 15 years of doing Radio! Most recently Chicago's own 'Karl and June Mornings!'  Radio is amazing  So much wisdom from thousands of interviews with people from all walks of life!  So much inspiration from hundreds of thousands of listeners. What an adventure!   I'm thankful!

Johnny Cakes!

The Dominican Republic is a place filled with miracles!  There I met so many inspiring people. People who wake up every day with one question on their hearts:  "Who can I be a blessing to today in Jesus Name?"    My favorite quote was from a man named Mael. He lives in a steel shack sells a homemade treat called 'Johnny Cakes.'  He told me, "No man is so poor that he cannot give, and no man is so rich that he does not have need.  If I have two plantains, one is for my neighbor."  Now that will preach!

A New Hope

One of the most inspiring stories I've ever heard was from a new friend, Battsetseg in Mongolia.  After hearing a radio program about the love of Jesus, she and her husband decided to create a library for orphans.  She sold his paintings on the streets for money and inspired her community so much that even the homeless residents were helping out.  Now the library has grown exponentially. They have a building and uniforms and hope is overflowing every day!   Battsetseg says "My dream has come true!"

 
Although the signs that the children made are thanking me, God's work through the team at WindFm, my listeners, friends and prayer partners at WMBI are the reason the orphans have A New hope! (Yes, I snuck a Star Wars reference in there! LOL!)

As a Technologist specializing in Behavior Design, it's my joy to help Tech Teams build and implement sound strategies for ongoing success.   As tech designers we have great influence on a global scale.  This is why we must make sure that the products & services we create are a force for good in the world.  As one of my mentors, Dr. BJ Fogg, creator of Behavior Design and Captology says, I believe 'We can leverage pursuasive technology to create more harmony among disparate cultures and countries.' Here are a few of my favorite tech initiatives, including my 1st App project - Aop!

Aop is a brand new way to bring people together. Across the United States, we are becoming increasingly divided into our own groups.  Aop is a fun place to bridge the gaps between groups of people who otherwise don’t connect. 

Our hope is that as we begin to better understand each other, we’ll be able to better connect with one another. What do you believe?  Where do you fit?  Who agrees with you? Do you stand with the bold majority? Or the fearless minority?  The opinions we're sharing and the answers we're gathering each day are bringing us to a new understanding of ourselves and others across the USA.  Join the conversation by downloading today! 

 


A Wise Rat

Are you the kind of person who avoids confrontation? At Aop, these are the kinds of conversations we love having with you. It’s good to spend a few seconds keeping it real even when things get uncomfortable.  That’s one of the reasons why we built Aop.  We've created a place where people are coming together, one vote at a time to see how our opinions connect to build our lives, our experiences and our culture.  

As we’ve examined thousands of opinions shared by family, friends, and fellow citizens of the USA, we're able to see clearly how even our contrasting points of view are beautiful.  The data is proof that the often reported divisions are not as wide as we believed and this tension could make us stronger than we ever imagined, if we’re all willing to do our part.

A wise rat named Splinter once said to his oldest Ninja Turtle son, Leonardo, that when it comes to unity and strength for the team, “You shouldn’t want them all to think the same, it’s their different points of view that make the team strong.  A good leader understands this. A good brother accepts it.”*

So would you say that you’re the kind of person who avoids confrontation or can you appreciate the beauty that's born of diversity?  Do you realize the importance of every opinion you hold and preference you have?

Without your opinion, we have an incomplete picture of humanity and your value to our story is immeasurable. So don’t hold back, join the conversation today with Aop and Vote Happy!
