If you’re like most people who follow me on social media, read my blog, or use my Resources, then you love your family and you want to see it grow, improve, and thrive in every area of life. You are not okay with settling for less than God’s best for you or the one’s your love. You are active in your community and in your church and you are serious about getting your FOCUS back to the things that matter most.
But, like all of us do, you probably have some struggles too.
- You struggle to find freedom in your finances and being consistent with improving your health.
- You struggle to find ways to deal with in-laws, siblings, or other key relationships in your life.
- You are a Christian, but want to live life to the fullest – but you aren’t sure how to get there.
- You want to break free from “average” and have an uncommon (extraordinary) marriage, mindset, and kids.
- You want to do work or run a business that is meaningful and serves a higher purpose and calling but you’re not sure what that always looks like.
- Ultimately, you struggle to GET focused, LIVE focused, and STAY focused in the midst of a busy, overwhelming, and sometimes crazy life.
If that sounds familiar, then you’re in the right place. You’re not alone.
I Understand How You Feel
I know what you are feeling because I feel it too! As a husband, father of four girls (please pray for me!), a blogger, author, home-based business owner, and more – it feels overwhelming to me at times too.
I want to put God first, family second, and be able to look back and see that I did not settle for mediocre or average in any area of my life. I am a hard worker who loves to learn, grow, and take on a challenge. But I knew that to achieve my goals and dreams, I was going to need some help. I needed a coach or mentor(s) who know where I’ve been and, more importantly, who can give me the tools that I need to help me get where I want to go.
If you’ve read my About page, you’ll recall that I have tried to surround myself with people like that. People who can help me get me where I want to go. So I determined a long time ago to be a student of the best. Like them, I want to be the best at whatever I do. In this case, I want to have the best family possible and make the most of my time here on this earth.
My hope, then, of playing this game of Follow the Leader is to speed up my ability to learn and apply all that I can from them and to transfer it to my own life and family.
This blog is my invitation to you to do the same.
Be A Follower
So that’s what I do. I am a follower and I encourage you to be one, too. I know that as a leader, that sounds like the wrong idea. But just as the Apostle Paul wasn’t ashamed to say to his audience, “Follow me…as I follow Christ.” I, too, am encouraging you to do the same. Follow me, but NOT because I am a master at any of this. Instead, I am simply learning from the best minds I can find and I am trying to pass along to you what I’m learning. It is in this way that I hope to help so that we can simply grow together.
That’s the goal and why I do what I do.
I am not the expert (yet). I don’t know how to answer every pressing question or help heal and restore every family issue (yet). I don’t have the credentials (yet) that would “wow!” you or make you want to name your children after me (although Nate is a pretty cool name if you’re looking for one!). But what I CAN DO is condense the best information that I discover and present it in my own way. I can take what the best thought leaders and family-focused people know and do and share it with you. I won’t pretend to be the best. I doubt that would matter to you anyways. You just want to help your family FOCUS. Me too!
So let’s grow and learn together. That’s what this site is all about.
Where To Start
Not sure where to start?
I’d suggest that you check out some of my previous posts first. You can find them by quickly scrolling to the top of this page and looking on the right-hand side. Or just click here and scroll down.
I write about topics that I believe can help. F.O.C.U.S. topics such as: FREEDOM (finances & health), OTHERS (key relationships), CHRIST (spiritual life), UNCOMMON (marriage, parenting, and mindset), SERVE (work & business life) and then some Random stuff, too.

Also, if you haven’t done so yet, please SUBSCRIBE to my blog. It’s fast, easy, and free! You can do so by clicking here – and you can unsubscribe anytime!
Last thing: If you’re like most of my readers, you are a leader. If you weren’t, you probably wouldn’t be interested in trying to lead your family better. Most likely, people look up to you and trust you for help and answers. So if you think this site can help other families to grow and thrive in key areas of their life – please share it with them. I also make it very easy to share posts on your social media when you think something is worth sharing. There are simple links at the bottom of each post to do this. It’s super easy!
In the end, life is short and we are all in this together. My hope is that this blog will help you to do what this is all about:
Helping families FOCUS on the things that matter most!
