My name is Taka. I am an imperfect Christ follower, husband to my beautiful wife, and father to two amazing girls.

One of the main goals of any faith based leader to keep the main things the main things. We are being pulled and stretched in what feels like a thousand directions at the same time. Work, kids, fitness, personal growth, career advancement, dating your spouse, while also having a thriving relationship with God. Many times, if we're honest, the goal can be to just survive. To just make it through another day work, put the kids to bed and curl up on the couch for a few moments of solitutude before going to bed and doing it all over again.

We can give our lives pouring out to those we lead, those we do life with while also stewarding the influence we have on social media to "mentor from a distance".

So here's the question...

When do we take time to take our hands off of the plow, look up and see more than the to do list? When do we take time to honestly evaluate the kind of person we’ve become and the person we’re becoming?

That is why this blog exists.

My prayer is that the posts you’ll find here will encourage and challenge you to think like a person of action and act like a person of thought.

You get one life. It’s far too important to allow yourself to drift. And no one ever gets to the life they desire by accident. By drifting.

My goal is to help faith based leaders LIVE WELL. To LIVE INTENTIONALLY.
