Can you tell I was an only child?
My Father was a Vietnam Vet who committed suicide many years later. It would mean a lot to me if you took a minute to see and share what @safarilandgroup is doing with this amazing project. Please visit lionheartedfilm.com for the full film, and short stories from 22 veterans. In combat armor protects, armor saves lives. When soldiers return from the war zone the armor is removed. But the weight is not lifted. The heaviness of the battlefield is still carried by the veteran. Unseen armor contains and confines their untold stories. As a tribute to veterans, and to honor their strength and courage on Veterans Day, the Lionhearted project was created. Through art, film, and the written word, Lionhearted gives a voice to 22 veterans and their experiences. What they have seen. What they have lost. How they are healing. || @safarilandgroup @northamericanrescue @blueforcegear @nationalveteransartmuseum

People ask how, in todays world, am I able to do this job with a smile on my face. Let’s be honest. I go through many expressions throughout a shift. But one I won’t show is that of discouragement or being a malcontent. My belief that I was put here in this position at this moment for a purpose is all I need to keep this look of content on my face. . . “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23 ESV . . . #police #officer #911strong #cop #cops #lawenforcement #believe #good #god #bible #motivation
Embrace the stereotype...🍩🐷
My #wcw everyday. How and why she puts up with me I’ll never understand. @mrs911strong homeschools our 4 kids and keeps the house in order all the while I have fun at work and on social media. She’s a saint for putting up with it all.
Little changes over the last three years. 2015 was a rough year for me and my family. We had just moved into our new house. I was neck deep in my masters course work at Cal Baptist. And on top of that, my mom passed away. Life was surely out of balance. I had gained some weight and it was time to make changes. I had always been in the gym. But my diet needed some tweaking. Little by little the weight came off and my waist got smaller and smaller. I learned later that the hormone cortisol was responsible for a lot of my mid section weight gain. Cortisol is triggered by stress. Once I came to terms with the hand I was dealt and learned to give it to God, the stress lessened. Finally at a manageable, comfortable place. Find your balance
