    Great podcast Matt. I loved the story with your son. About 3 years ago we were at Disney World and the Tower of Terror was the one ride we didn’t ride. I will ride most anything but I had not desire for this one. However when we went back this past September my 15 year old daughter wanted to ride it. – I couldn’t back out. Of course I loved the ride – But that is just it. If we can learn to press through the fear we find joy and success on the other side. Sometimes we just need someone to turn up the heat and challenge us to give it a shot. Thanks Matt for keeping the heat up on the rest of us.

      Jon – that’s so cool that you had a similar story. What’s something you’re excited about this year?

        Similar stories except it was the kid telling the adult it would be OK 🙂

        I am really excited about our ministry this year. Not sure how much of my story I have told before but my wife and I pastor church going through a rebuilding (people) phase. We were the 4th senior pastors in 5 years. April will be our 2 year anniversary of taking on leading the church. It appears we have turned a corner and we have new leaders stepping up to help out. The people who normally just set in the seats each week are catching the vision. We still have a lot of unknowns but we have momentum to move forward. We should have close to 10 people getting baptized on Sunday. Now that is a great way to start a new year. 2015 will be great.

    My audacious goal for 2015 is to start my podcast… Fear is definitely wasting my time.

    I’m always looking for an excuse when I just need to do it!

    I’m making progress on the items I need. Microphone: Check, Name: pondering…., Artwork: in progress.

    Fighting the excuses!!

    One of my audacious goals is to dunk a basketball before the end of 2015. 4 years ago I could do it, but several factors have led to this not being an easy target. We’ll see how it goes. My first step in going after this goal is to drop a few pounds. I’m down several pounds already in 2015. Once I get down a few more, I’ll be working in strength building for my core and my legs and stretching to improve my flexibility.
