“Quit trying to make your weaknesses become your strengths.  You are going against the way that God has made you.  Instead – focus your time and energy into your strengths, and just manage your weaknesses” 

That quote was said to me by the great John Maxwell almost 10 years ago, and it has given me the freedom to GROW!

I’m Benjamin Stewart, and I love helping fellow Christian Leaders, Pastors, and Business Owners align with their best and God’s best. Through being a husband, a proud father of 9 kids, an entrepreneur, consultant, pastor, and former CEO – I have learned a lot about success and failure, being stressed and living the best version of your life.

I remember feeling like days and years were passing and I wasn’t really being who I was called to be!

Have you ever felt like you are stuck? Ever felt like if you copied what you did today for 5 years, you would be exactly where you are now?

Everything changed when I finally DID something different…

The Grammy’s: Evil?

Maturity isn’t seen in how much we can handle without it hurting us - it is seeing much we can sacrifice to help those who are hurting. After reading too many Facebook posts about the Grammys and whether or not something was satanic or not. It had me realizing that we...

Sneak Peek into my Book

Sneak Peek into my Book

I love to read, however there is one part of the book that I never read.. the preface.  Why?  I believe that every author that writes a preface is aiming to do one thing, give an excuse for the book.  I don’t want to give any excuses or insights into what I was...
