I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.  I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High. ~ Psalms 9:1-2 (NIV) Don’t worry, Thanksgiving Day is still a week away!

HT Alum Steve Nooyen Made God the CEO of His Company – Then the Real Adventure Began

Make a transition after those 20 years are complete. Little did Steve know, he was

The Only Way Home

Sometimes the only way home is through the one place we would never choose to go: The Wilderness. I have found that there are two ways to get to the wilderness. One, you can decide to take yourself there out of pure, unbridled obedience. Someone else is sending you and you know in your heart that you have to go. If you opt for this route, be prepared. A lot of people in your circle will think you’re crazy. But I’m here to tell you that you are most

Building a Thriving Family In Your Second Half – Part 1

Halftime is a personal journey from success to significance. It's a deep learning at midlife that "it's not about me." As well, it can be about more than just Mom and Dad's second half. It can be a turning point in a family's legacy. One of the most rewarding aspects of the Halftime Journey is taking our family with us on this exploration and adventure. Linda and I want our kids and grandkids to not only be successful in what they pursue but to live deep, rich, rewarding, self-sacrificing

Happy Thanksgiving From the Halftime Institute

Thanksgiving may be a holiday we only celebrate once a year, but the action of being thankful is something God intended for us to incorporate into our daily lives.  "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."  I Thessalonians 5:16-18 Unfortunately, many times we forget to share what we are thankful for due to the busyness of the weekend, and therefor, we miss a great opportunity to show our gratitude. Did you know studies show that grateful
