If you’re like most of my readers, you’re dedicated, accomplished. You are committed to serving others, at home and at work – you define success by the number of lives you make better. You strive to grow, improve, and reach your potential. You want to leave a lasting impact on your world.

Family Enjoying Life Together

But now you’re at a crossroads: You’re transitioning from military to civilian life, fitness or finances seem to be out of control, you deeply desire to be married or your marriage doesn’t seem to be working, you feel a spiritual void. Maybe you feel like this reader:

I feel anxious and aimless. I used to have such purpose in my life. But now I just don’t know. What should be my next step? I’m damaging my marriage and distancing my kids. How do I reconnect with them, renew my faith in G-d, find my mission in life?

Does This Sound Like You?

Be honest:

  • Do you look forward to getting out of the military but you’re uptight about the future?
  • Do you fear the important things are falling through the cracks?
  • Do you worry what seemed temporary issues now seem to be permanent?

If so, you’re not alone. All of us have felt this way.

I Know How You Feel

I know what it feels like to be in over your head—to transition from civilian life to the military and then back again, while trying to hold together the things that matter most - family, health, faith, and community.

I built a thriving business. But it came at the expense of my most valuable relationships. And it never filled the holes in my soul I thought it would.

As Navy chaplain and a successful entrepreneur now making my second go in the civilian world, I have faced the challenges of transitions, building a strong marriage, and having so many people making demands on me I could never meet them all.

I have found you must be intentional about choosing the right things to get done.

If you’re like me, that means making your relationship with G-d, your health, your marriage, relationships with your friends and colleagues, your house of worship, and your contribution to your community top priorities.
