This week I was referred by a good friend to one of the most inspirational videos I’ve ever seen about a leader planting seeds of greatness in college students. This 25 minute documentary tells the amazing story of Dr. Nido Qubein and was filmed by Nick Nanton, founder of The Celebrity Branding® Agency.
If you don’t know who Nido is, you are missing out. Nido is President of High Point University, one of the fastest growing universities in the country. He is also the CEO of the Great Harvest Bread Company and sits on the boards of BB&T Bank as well as La-Z-Boy. Nido has completely changed the concept of what a college is to be.

This morning while posting messages on Your Daily Blessing blog, I stumbled across a YouTube video with All Angels singing “Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace.” That was so good, I decided to listen to several more of their songs and to research more about this group.
All Angels are a British classical crossover group formed in 2006, consisting of Daisy Chute, Rachel Fabri, Melanie Nakhla and Charlotte Ritchie. The group’s style is classical crossover music and close harmony arrangement, with a repertoire spanning classical, choral, opera and pop.
They recorded their first three albums with Universal and have over 1 million sales. Their self-titled debut album, All Angels was released in 2006, and their second album, Into Paradise was released on 26 November 2007. A third album Fly away was released in January 2010.
Here are some of my favorite songs by All Angels. Enjoy!

Today I want to give tribute to Michael Stay, one of the most influential leaders ever in my life. On May 17 I received the sad news that Michael had passed away after a year and half battle with cancer. I felt devastated. On May 22, I went with my wife to Michael’s outdoor memorial service. When I came home, I began crying because I missed him so much. Let me tell you about one of my best friends ever, who modeled a life of faith and integrity.

While on a group Master’s Mind Marketing (Dream Team) call on April 16, Russel Stauffer mentioned that he and his wife saw Nick Castellano the day before. That was a little unusual because the Stauffer’s live in Alberta Canada and Nick lives in Arizona. Nick’s name came up when we were talking about the importance of peace and joy.
When Russel mentioned “Awaken the Sleeper,” I remembered my conversation with Lex Lamotte several months earlier when he recommended I read Nick’s book and contact Nick about hosting him on a webinar to share his message with my followers around the world. I failed to follow through at that time.
However, on April 16 I ordered Awaken the Sleeper and read it entirely the next day. I absolutely love the Preface and Nick’s daily routine for entering the throne room of Almighty God (Papa). Nick’s stories about how to create your days is incredible. Enjoy.

The Bible miniseries about to premier Sunday March 3 on HISTORY (formally called the History Channel) is one of the more remarkable cinematic events of our time. The episodes will bring to life the stories of the Bible from Genesis through Revelation. The series begins March 3 and will run each Sunday for two hours before it concludes on March 31, Easter. Jim Daly, President of Focus on the Family President and one of the miniseries consultants, the series may “serve as a spark to rekindle or kindle” the faith of viewers who may have strayed from Scripture.”

This is a powerful true story that I first heard during a sermon at Mountain View Community Church on Jan 6. Discover what happened when a successful businessman agreed to a bet to pray a simple prayer (God bless Africa) for 45 days. If you want to experience mountain moving prayer, then take the 45 day challenge to pray a simple prayer daily for 45 days.

Dear friend, Do you need a new vehicle to take you to your dreams? Over the past four years, I have hosted more than 400 live professional webinars and over 2000 online meetings.

On the night of Feb 13, 2012, the LORD ended my day with an exclamation point, including a wonderful conversation with Will Green. During our conversation, Will was prompted to email me his long list of YouTube videos with inspirational Christian messages and anointed worship. The next morning (Feb 14, Valentine’s Day), I woke up early following a vivid dream that reminded me of the importance of strategic intercession. As I was journaling, I was led to this outstanding video by Dr. Yongii Cho who teaches how to pray with a faith that move mountains. Enjoy!
