TIME Person of the Year: Ebola Fighters

Dr. Kent Brantly, Samaritan’s Purse doctor that contracted the life-threatening Ebola in West Africa, is honored as TIME Person of the Year. Brantly became the face of Ebola when he was transported back to the United States from Liberia and treated at Emory Hospital in Atlanta. This honor is for all the Ebola fighters on the front lines battling this terrible disease every day. Kent Brantly is a family friend of mine and throughout this ordeal I have watched the character and faith of this man remain steadfast. On October 11 at a Samaritan’s Purse Medical Conference Brantly said this, […]

Operation Whipcrack: Team Rubicon responds to Typhoon Hagupit

A massive Category 3 typhoon made landfall in the central Philippines late Saturday. The entire area is being battered with heavy rains and winds just one year after Super Typhoon Haiyan devastated the region. Typhoon Hagupit, meaning “lash” in Filipino, came ashore on eastern Samar Island just before 10 p.m. (9 a.m. ET) with winds of 205 kph (127 mph) — the equivalent of a Category 3 hurricane. About 40 million people are in the path of the storm’s winds. Though the storm will weaken as it moves over land, it is expected to remain a typhoon before it moves […]

Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes from Team Never Settle

My family’s favorites include this butternut squash soup, caramelized onion galette and an apple pie from Pie ‘n Burger. As you leaf through family cookbooks and break out binders filled with grandma’s handwriting, or simply pick up takeout, I urge you to think about which ingredients really constitute a truly wonderful Thanksgiving. I assure you it’s not pure organic butter, or the finest Himalayan salt. It’s purpose. It’s deliberately choosing to put down your phone, step away from your email and spending time with the ones you love the most. It could be a traditional family gathering, with a Norman […]

A Lasting Legacy: Don Pittman’s 54th Birthday

At first glance, today appears to be no different than any other day. But deep in my heart I feel it and my children feel it too. Today, November 23rd, would have been Don Pittman’s 54th birthday. It’s hard to know exactly what you should do on a day like today. He’s been gone so long but yet his presence is still so near. As I watched him take his last breath eight years ago, I decided two things that would define my life moving forward. I will honor God by the way I live my life, and walk through […]

Thanksgiving 2014: How Do You Spell “Love”?

All across the nation, people will be celebrating Thanksgiving 2014 this week. For most of us that means turkey, dressing, pumpkin pie and time spent with family. There’s certainly nothing wrong with tradition but sometimes we can get so wrapped up in it that we forget to actually be thankful. Thanks and giving always go together. The more thankful we are, the more we give. Giving is a natural expression of our gratitude. Never Settle was born out of hearts of gratitude. We realized we have been given much living in a country where wealth flows freely. Even America’s poor […]
