I was told by so many people that I wouldn’t succeed because I was too different. Ironically, the very reason that people watch my channel and travel thousands of miles to see a show… is because it’s different. God didn’t send us to Earth to just blend in. We are here to share what makes us unique.

The Department of Homeland Security is a strategic feel good measure. It’s going to be the Department of Agriculture for the 21st century. TSA – thousands standing around.

I believe many people feel like God is mad at them. One day I put a post on Facebook that said, ‘God is not mad at you.’ Within a few hours, we literally had thousands of positive responses from people saying things like, ‘That is exactly what I needed to hear today.’ Obviously, this is a message we need to hear.
