You Have Chosen Wisely (Seasoned Green Oak #66)

Someone who grows up without strong role models and solid examples to imitate will probably have a harder time making good choices and sustaining a healthy relationship.  Join Kevin as he shares the struggle he went through to become the person he was meant to be and how he is working to be worthy of the the woman who saved him. YOU […]

What Did You Say? (Seasoned Green Oak #65)

May 12, 2015

Political Correctness: the avoidance, often considered as taken to extremes, of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against. If you think that our adherence to political correctness has gone over the top these days, it’s still hard to argue that insulting or marginalizing an individual or group of people is okay because they took what you said “the wrong way.” Kevin learned that lesson […]

Who Has Your Back? (Seasoned Green Oak #64)

April 28, 2015

The “loner” achetype is popular in books, movies, and televison.  From Boo Radley (To Kill a Mockingbird) to Luke Jackson (“Cool Hand Luke”) to Kwai Chang Caine (“Kung Fu”), we are fascinated by the solitary existence and seeming self-sufficiency of these characters. But is this lifestyle realistic and/or admirable? Knowing that someone is there to support you during difficult times can make any situation in life easier. Join Kevin as he shares how one of the darkest times in his […]

Be Prepared (Seasoned Green Oak #63)

April 9, 2015

Is advanced preparation critical to success? How should you respond when circumstances force you to make last minute changes? To a certain extent, the answers to those questions depend on how high the stakes are.  It might be okay to “fly by the seat of your pants” if the risk is low, but for critical tasks, it’s always better to over plan and prepare for all the variables you can.  Join Kevin as he shares the painful outcome he experienced […]

Beating the Bully (Seasoned Green Oak #62)

April 2, 2015

Most children who are bullied carry the damage for the rest of their lives.  Part of the reason is that they never have any closure. The bullies never apologize, and the children never have the chance to face down the bullies when they are older and more confident. Join Kevin as he talks about how satisfying and liberating it is to finally beat your bully.

We’ll All Laugh about This Some Day (Seasoned Green Oak #60)

March 18, 2015

We’ve all had unpleasant experiences that weren’t very funny when they happened, but we develop perspective and appreciate the humor that becomes apparent with the passage of time.  For people in poverty, finding the immediate humor in daily situations becomes a survival technique.  Join Kevin as he shares a story involving his dad, a rat, and a shotgun that had them all laughing the day it happened.

Mad As A Hornet (Seasoned Green Oak #59)

March 6, 2015

You’ve probably heard the phrase “mad as a hornet” used to describe someone who is extremely angry, but most of us have never seen this member of the wasp family in action.  Suffice it to say they are aggressive and can sting multiple times when provoked.  Join Kevin as he shares the story of the day his dad made the hornets mad.

The Night My Mom Almost Went Crazy (Seasoned Green Oak #58)

February 24, 2015

Most of us have at least one special person in our life, a person we can count on for strength and support when times are tough. We rely on that person so much that when he or she is in trouble, it’s frightening because we know how vulnerable we would be on our own. For Kevin, that person was his mother. Join him as he shares how he became a source of strength for her the night she almost went […]

The Wiffle Bat (Seasoned Green Oak #57)

February 16, 2015
