“There is not one wise man in twenty that will praise himself.”
Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth;
A stranger, and not your own lips. (Proverbs 27:2)
How much value do you place on the testimonies
of those who a person well?
The praises and testimonies you are about to read all came from friends who know me very well – people who have personally experienced the fruit of my journaling. I met nearly all of them since reading “The Greatest Salesman In The World” in 2000. Next to the Bible that book influenced me more than any other I have ever read.
Each person sharing his or her praise has made a big difference in my life and I have made a big difference in theirs. That is what covenant relationships are all about – two-way relationships in which people meet the needs of one another and bless one another.
Our God is a “covenant God” – a God of covenant relationships. Very few followers of Jesus fully grasp the significance of this in terms of their relationships with other people and their success in the marketplace.
One of the five laws of sowing and reaping is that you reap where you sow. In other words, if I sow good seed into your life, it is reasonable to expect a harvest from you. To put it another way, when someone blesses me, God expects me to bless them.
One of the reasons the Jewish people prosper so greatly as a whole in the marketplace is they understand covenant relationships and the principles of sowing and reaping.
The Holy Spirit prompted me to include hyperlinks to the websites and blogs of those who have impacted me greatly because I am a CONNECTOR IN CHRIST. Though me, God is connecting YOU to these life and world changers. Contact them as the Holy Spirit leads you. These people can and will open doors for you. They will partner with some of you. As the Nike slogan says, “Just do it!” Or as God says, “Be strong and of good courage!”
Dr. Randy Peck has become an uncommon follower of an uncommon Man…the Lord Jesus Christ! Randy models our Savior by manifesting the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23). A large part of Randy’s maturity has been because he is mastering journaling. Dr. Peck’s book “UNCOMMON Journaling for Breakthroughs” will mirror his heart – a heart that is seeking God’s heart.

Randy Peck is an incredible leader with a heart that reflects Christ at all times. Randy has an insatiable desire to help others through divinely inspired insight and discernment. While Randy is a client, he also is a provider of web and internet marketing services. He is a leader in social networks, blogs and journaling. I believe that Randy is the foremost journaler of all times. He inspires others through his God given ability helping others see their gifting while encouraging them to activate plans of action meeting their goals. Randy remains an accountability partner to help others soar! That’s Randy, a gifted medical doctor and life coach extraordinaire!!

“I don’t know anyone that has become a student, or master, of journaling to the level of Randy Peck. He has a passion for sharing with others, the gifts of journaling – some of those gifts include focus, organization, personal life impact and the simple yet powerful capture of life’s moments and memories.
Randy has probably spent a good part of a year distilling, developing and perfecting how to best communicate, share and teach others the life transforming skill of journaling. He conducted several online webinars/seminars that gave him the opportunity to optimize the best way to share his material. In addition, he now has several testimonies of people that have benefitted from learning and applying journaling in their lives. Many are now reaping the life changing impact of this powerful habit, that Randy himself has benefitted from personally for several years.”

There is so much to be said about the spoken word. The Bible says in the beginning God spoke and the Holy Spirit was hovering over the water to respond to the spoken word. In the same way the prophets prophesied and the Holy Spirit was there to respond to the word. Through journaling, the word is written, again the Holy Spirit is there to respond to the word. I see an incredible awakening in the spirit of people who journal. Thoughts are written and later reflections in the journal reveal how the Holy Spirit has intervened. It’s amazing. It’s supernatural. It’s a real spirit builder. Scales begin to fall off your eyes and humbles one to desire the will of God.
I met Randy right around the time that he began his faith walk with Jesus. We struck up a friendship that has lasted and grown. I may have been one of the first people to introduce Randy to journaling. Randy, though, is a voracious and quick learner. What I casually suggested as a simple tool and habit, Randy has latched onto, perfected, and used as the cornerstone of personal and spiritual growth. Today, I am learning from him in the arena of journaling and personal leadership. Randy may be the most organized, focused, productive person I know. He attributes most of his personal development and success to journaling, and as a close friend who would love to achieve half of what Randy accomplishes, I would agree: Journaling is the lead domino in his life.
You have blessed me and everyone you’ve met and it is I who feel humbled. I thank God every day for your spirit and your mentorship. You are a phenomenal “coach” and you practice what you preach.
You are the power networker who has brought us all together. Thank you for being such a willing servant.
You are the most positive person I know… I’ve admired your perseverance this year … you have touched so many lives and God has given you convergences with the leaders in social marketing. God has trained you for this and He’s going to use you in consulting projects that are Kingdom building and exactly in step with the desires of your heart. With your intercessors on board I feel it happening right now!!!
Randy is the greatest dreamer I have ever known!
LORD, help us to be better Samaritans… That is our primary command . And this story (Good Samaritan) is the essence of the MTC story… And this is the story that we ask You to help us tell the world… And as I was thinking about this word Samaritan, I can’t think of anyone who better exemplifies ‘Samaritan’ than Randy.” (Virginia’s prayer on Feb 10, 2009)

I have developed strong relationships with almost every coach I have ever been blessed to work with, but the relationship between Randy and me has proved to be very special. While he has been an extremely receptive student of coaching, I would have to say that I often feel I have learned more from working with Randy than he could possibly have learned from me. He has truly become my peer mentor.

You can’t be around Dr. Randy Peck very long without hearing him tell about how journaling has impacted his life. Randy shares freely and frequently with all how journaling has, time after time, helped him to put together the “pieces of the puzzle” and brought him clarity on how God is speaking to him. As he puts it, journaling continues to be the “lead domino” of his life. The benefits he has realized from recording his own daily walk of faith have led him to develop a system which can be taught to others.
God has inspired Randy to set some “God-sized” goals for his personal life, one of which is to impact one billion souls for Christ. I believe that his development of this journaling system falls right in line with this goal, in that the intent is to influence every recipient in such a way that they too will begin to see more clearly through journaling how God is speaking to them each day, that they will therefore be able to share these God-experiences with others. Thank-you, Dr. Peck!
The challenge about journaling was CLEAR. Thanks for being the best journaler in the universe. I am believing my log jam to break apart.

When we look back in American History it seems evident that more than a few of our founding fathers really had a deep love for the new nation. It is increasingly rare to find leaders today who give you a sense that they really love their city, state or country. More often than not civic leaders today seem more concerned with themselves and their political careers than with the people they supposedly serve. I had the privilege of meeting someone recently who actually appears to genuinely love the city and state in which he resides. He is Dr. Randy Peck. Randy has such a love for his city Culpeper and Virginia that it exudes out of him in almost every conversation he holds. It is said that one speaks out of the abundance of his heart and I can testify that Dr. Peck has both Culpeper and the state of Virginia deep in his heart. I have never met someone who has such a genuine love for his city and state as this man.

Hi Randy & Julia, AJ and I can’t thank each of you enough so that you would know how much you blessed us over the weekend. You are such a great couple. Your hospitality was tremendous and we really enjoyed just being in your home and company. Your group really blessed AJ and me. It is truly the first success story we have had. We have never had anyone come alongside us like the two of you. It is truly a God send. Randy, you have an amazing gift that transcends any single gift. You go wide and deep in your thinking and planning. Your mind doesn’t stop.
Hi Randy, Thank you so much. Your group was far and away the best group I have ever met. I’ll never forget the meeting we had following the process. (January 29, 2009)

Dr. Peck brings many innate qualities that are essential for a successful person. His organizational skills are without equal – no one I’ve ever met has been more organized yet thoughtful of any task before him… An outstanding personal character trait is the simple- his word is his bond, he always did what he said he would do and worked tirelessly to fulfill his obligations both on an administrative and personal level… A great team player he gave freely of himself to instruct, but was also willing to listen to others- he could see the Big Picture through the prism of all the necessary details.
