I often get the question: Why would you be motivated to do inspirational messages?
I can best say: That I am led to it.
For instance, when something is personally important to you, it has a continuing and different way to permeate itself on your heart and mind.
It’s something you can’t help but pay attention to in your mind.
For me, I call this: Listening to God.
It is my perspective that one of the beautiful parts of life is the freedom to choose.
Choice is so built into who each one of us. What I mean by that is that not even making a choice, is still choosing.
We do not want to suppress other differing points of view. We do not want to control others with our point of view, but rather to express who we are, and what we stand for.
You are free to disagree.
In fact, we have several Atheists who write us notes of support, as well as others telling us about their differing viewpoints.
We let those voices be heard on our Facebook page and even sought one out for this blog.
Question for you. Can we acknowledge that our views differ and still find common ground to enjoy what we both like? Is that possible?
We’d like to think so.
We are not offended by another point of view, and hope to provide a focus on the unity of our passion for fishing.
In that process we can only be who we are. That is the honest truth.
The fact that others are able to gain something that helps them in their lives from sharing our views fills us up. It is intended to be a positive message of encouragement and hope.
It’s not about us and it is why we do it.
Have you ever said something that, as soon as you finished saying it, you thought, “Oh my gosh, I wish I never said this, I wish I had a do over?” We all have been there, and we all know what it’s like.
One golden rule in my life contains two simple words: “Forgive Often.”
Forgiving others is what many of us have been told, taught, or asked to do since a young age.
The story of Al Lindner’s colleague is a great example of true inspirational humor. It reminds us that, even in the face of adversity, we can still find moments of humor and joy. It also serves as a reminder that, when our time comes, we must have the peace of God in our heart.
We are each uniquely created and wonderfully made with a special purpose and God-given talents that nobody else has. Take some time to consider what God has planned for your life and speak to someone about the things that God has done in your life.

A Long Life
In a given year, I read many books, magazines, and papers that people in a full-time ministry mostly write. I’m regularly into the Bible—it’s part of my daily life, just like fishing.
Every year, I get many emails and letters in the mail concerning my thoughts at the end of the show — inspirational segments that I do.
Father Figures are one of the most treasured roles as a human being, but appreciating the time they spent raising you and spending time with them while they are still here on earth is so important.
