Mike  Norton
“One of the greatest evils is the foolishness of a good man. For the giving man to withhold helping someone in order to first assure personal fortification is not selfish, but to elude needless self-destruction; martyrdom is only practical when the thought is to die, else a good man faces the consequence of digging a hole from which he cannot escape, and truly helps no one in the long run.”
Mike Norton, Just Another War Story

Rachel Naomi Remen
“Many times when we help we do not really serve. . . . Serving is also different from fixing. One of the pioneers of the Human Potential Movement, Abraham Maslow, said, "If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.' Seeing yourself as a fixer may cause you to see brokenness everywhere, to sit in judgment of life itself. When we fix others, we may not see their hidden wholeness or trust the integrity of the life in them. Fixers trust their own expertise. When we serve, we see the unborn wholeness in others; we collaborate with it and strengthen it. Others may then be able to see their wholeness for themselves for the first time.”
Rachel Naomi Remen

Shannon L. Alder
“Sometimes God sends certain people into your life because you’re lacking a certain perspective or principle that he has been trying to help you with for a really long time. This type of person he sends won’t be like the rest because if they were then you wouldn’t take notice. These people can see right through you and are down right brutal when it comes to keeping you real. They will call you out on your antics, not because they are better than you are. They are fully aware of their own issues to over come. They do it because they know how much better you can become. Who would ever want a friend or spouse that allowed you to hurt other people intentionally or unintentionally, without caring or making amends? What man or woman would stand by you and let you do it? Sure, there are plenty of people that will use a gentler approach. They will sing hymns with you, pray with you, read you a few scripture passages and tell you to have faith while they are using a nail file to cut through your chains. Maybe, in a few years you will be free. However, when God wants to get the job done a little faster, he will send an outspoken warrior with a chainsaw and an attitude to rescue you.”
Shannon L. Alder

“They say faith is taking the first step when you can’t see the whole staircase. Actually, wisdom is seeing the elevator behind it that would have taken you to the top floor.”
Shannon L. Alder
