An Open Hand


I’m a starter. Those of you that know me well, already know that. In my life I have been fortunate enough to have an 50k foot view on some really cool projects. But that also has a dark side to it. You see, I’m a starter. I get excited about things and I sometimes see a vision clearly. I find it easy to communicate that vision. I’m a communicator and some things just come natural to me. They fall into place easily and that’s exciting, it’s invigorating and some say that I’m a little too intense when those things are working in me. But what happens when the dust settles? What happens after I follow what is said in Hab 2:2 when the vision is written down and explained and communicated? What then? What happens after it’s started? How do you get past that? I want to share with you a struggle I’ve had for years, and the answer is quite simple. Welcome to Living the Freedom Life This is Episode 85 and today we’ll talk about the solution of walking with an Open Hand.
Have you ever reached a point where you've told yourself “Something's Gotta Change”? With everything going on nowadays, it may be a more common statement than I realized. There's a lot of tension in our society right now. Including the weather, power outages, food shortages, boiling restrictions on water, Patience wears thin. Intolerance is at an all-time high with our society. Everywhere you look, there is a flavor of division, it’s everywhere. Unity seems like a pipe dream. We are a divided nation and it’s much more than politics. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, ep 84 and today’s title is “Something’s Gotta Change”.
I don’t like to fail. I’m sure you don’t either. But I have and I do fail. A lot. It’s difficult for me to keep moving, to keep trying after I realize that I have failed. Sometimes, I refuse to see it when it's right in front of me. The most dangerous part about this is that most times when we fail, we face it alone. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, ep 83 and today we are talking about Embracing Failure Alone.
Going Through Hell

Going Through Hell


One of the main keys to success is to keep going when you start. I’m sure that you’ve heard the old adage, “If you’re going through Hell, keep going.” Let me explain a few things today that’s helped a lot of people. This has EVERYTHING to do with Living the Freedom Life and I want to share it with you. This is Episode 82 named after those infamous words of Winston Churchill, We are talking about “Going Through Hell” today.
When it comes to New Year Resolutions, by now, there are only four options. Either you are well on your way to accomplishing the task you set out, or they’ve flopped, or you didn’t make any, or, the fourth option is that you just need some encouragement to keep going. This is episode # 81 and you're listening to Living the Freedom Life.
The Art of Marinating

The Art of Marinating


I want to ask you a rhetorical question. How many times have you been talking to someone, they ask “How have you been?”, and your answer goes something like this... “Oh man, I’ve been really busy.” Or “Yeah, I just don’t have time for much anymore, between work and family.” You're listening to Living the Freedom Life Ep 80 and today we are talking about being The Art of Marinating.



As we dive into today’s topic... It’s one that I face quite often and I’m sure you do too. Even with our Coaching clients, we find that this is a huge driver to many things we do in our lives. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, this is episode 79 and today we are talking about Rejection.
How many of you have made it this far? You know, with your New Year Resolutions. Are you still holding down the fort, even though the enemy is circling? Why are resolutions so hard? I know, resolutions are usually things, that I know that I should be doing, but aren’t. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, this is ep78 Resolution, Schmed-jo-lution.
Look, there hasn’t been much gone untouched by 2020. This year has been a doozy. I’ve seen everything from making sure that everyone eats Black Eyed Peas for the New Year to Opening your Back Door just before midnight to “Let out” everything about 2020 and open your front door to let the newness of 2021 in. There is a lot that needs to change about 2021. But this time of year sparks that kind of thing, now doesn’t it? You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life ep 77 and today we are asking What Do You Want to Change?
You Got Me What?

You Got Me What?


This isn’t going to be your typical Christmas post. You may have seen videos about today’s topic, you may have experienced this yourself and watched it happen. You may have even thought this yourself. Picture this, it's Christmas morning, you can tell without going outside, it’s cold, there are still hot coals in the fireplace, you stoke it a couple of times and it comes back to life again, you begin to feel its warmth, the Tree is lit and coffee is brewing. The time is finally here, to sit around the tree and open presents. You are about to hear the distinct sound of wrapping paper being torn open. There is so much excitement in the room, the kids can’t keep still. They are squirming and about to explode out of their skin. They tear open paper and boxes like they are trying to save someone’s life that’s stuck inside.. . . and then, their shoulders drop. They look up slowly, ...“You got me, What?”… You're listening to Living the Freedom Life. Ep 76 Our title today, First off, Merry Christmas everyone. Our title today is “You Got Me, What?”
Have you ever posted something on social media and wanted to retract it? It reminds me of the expression, “You can't put toothpaste back into the tube”? Well, this was definitely one of those moments. This was something that was a meme, someone else had already typed it out for me and it had a picture background. In that moment, it satisfied a voice inside, that felt like it needed to be heard. And I re-posted it. Oh, I don’t regret re-posting it, not at all. It blew up with conversation. We’ll talk about it today on Living the Freedom Life. This is ep 75 “There’s a Silver Lining in that Dark Cloud Looming”
This story is borrowed from a friend. A little boy climbs up in his Grandpa's lap and asks, "Can I try on your glasses Grampa?" "Okay, but be careful, they're pretty strong." He picks up the glasses and puts them on... followed by... "AAAGH!" The little boy got up from his Grandpa's lap, announcing to the rest of the room, "You live in a scary world Grandpa." We don't do this often enough. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, and today we're talking about Trying on Other Peoples Glasses
Let’s see, we have Fall, Pre-Winter, then we have a little bit more Fall, so we can move into Official Winter. Get ready for the weather confusion. For Thanksgiving we were in Nashville, which is a little colder than what we're used to in Texas. They actually got snow. Of which, I'm a little jealous. At home, we have a lot of plants that can’t survive a freeze. So when I woke up one morning and they were all brown, it was actually comforting. The first freeze is crucial for me to feel that “Complete Fall” is here. Because, as many of you know, I love fall. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, and today we're talking about Complete Fall.
If you're listening to this today, Thanksgiving Day, instead of listening to this right now, let me encourage you to go check the turkey, check on the biscuits, hug your mother, sit down with your grandparents and listen to those stories they want to tell you. Then come back and listen to Living the Freedom Life. I want to share with you some things I learned about glue today. Happy Thanksgiving Day Everyone! You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life Ep 72 I’ll Have A Glue Thanksgiving Without You
With Thanksgiving coming up I thought we would have a discussion about something that I’ve found everyone struggles with. Forgiveness. You may even have someone that comes to mind.  Even as I mentioned the word, Forgiveness, you already have a picture in your mind of what that looks like. Even if you don’t, That’s okay, […]
With all of the celebration coming up, of us surrounded by holidays, let’s talk about the one that no one admits to celebrating until we don’t have it in our lives. Trash Day! Yeah, Trash Day. I know, you may think that I’ve gone off my rocker...When we don’t take out the trash, it doesn’t take long for it to pile up and things get nasty. You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life, ep 70 Happy Trash Day!
I just found out that this broadcast goes further than I expected, Living the Freedom Life isn't just in the United States. I want to say welcome to our listeners that are abroad. Zech 4:10 says “Don’t despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin. It doesn’t matter where you are or where you stand on political issues, here in the states, this Wednesday we will celebrate Veterans Day, the people who served our nation and preserved our freedom. That’s what we are talking about this week on Living the Freedom Life.
I wasn’t raised in an overtly Christian home. Both of my parents were decent people, but we NEVER talked about eternal things. We only went to church to pay homage to my grandparents. And here is what I would like to share with you today. I’m a Halloween baby. Now, I’m not mentioning that for Happy Birthday accolades, but I'm sharing this with you today because of the messed up theology I had about my birthday when I was growing up. I somehow formed a belief system that the day of my birth had something to do with who I was. As I mentioned before, I even had life examples to confirm what I was believing. Which brings us to a saying we have at Kyle McMurray Coaching “You will find what you focus on”.
The Cloak The Cloak

The Cloak The Cloak


A cloak is an outer garment that hangs loose from your shoulders. And if you think about it, a cloak usually worn by someone creepy. If you see a person wearing a cloak, they're probably trying to hide something. Dracula wears one, even the Grim Reaper wears a cloak. Let's be reminded of something when we think of these images. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, Episode 67 The Cloak
There is a lot of information, and I mean a LOT of information on Halloween’s origin. Some are opinions, and some are facts. You may be surprised as to which ones come from which direction. But I did a little digging of my own. You know, doing more than a simple Google search, then claiming to be an expert. Today, we are talking about something I’ve struggled with [in my identity]...all of my life and how it ties into Halloween goes deep into how my belief system was formed. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, Episode 66 {I know, one number shy of the “mark of the beast”} This episode is called “Something Spooky”.
