Have you noticed that excellence is not as prevalent as it used to be? Have you wondered why mediocrity and ‘good enough’ has become an acceptable standard? Do you find yourself doing just enough to get by, without being concrned about the how? You may not know the difference between God’s definition of excellence and the world’s definition.
Excellence is NOT perfection!
We will never be perfect, but that doesn’t mean we should avoid striving for excellence altogether!
I became a professional entertainer at age 10, training under the pressures of working on a popular TV show for 7 years. In following years, I continued to live by the world’s definition of excellence, striving to measure up to the impossible standards of show business, and I failed to be perfect every single day!
When I finally gave Jesus my heart, He changed my perspective on excellence, showing me in His word that God created me as a masterpiece, that His strength is made perfect in my weakness. Though I am passionate about being the best I can be in life, I now live by God’s definition of excellence!
I want to show you the difference between how God calls us to live and how the world tells us we should live. I will equip you with the understanding of what true excellence is, the practical steps to achieving it, and the desire to strive for it!
I want to show you how to recognize:
1) LIES you believe,
2) EXCUSES you make,
and 3) DISTRACTIONS out of your control…
and how to get back on track when you know what the word of God says about them!
Having experienced over 25 years of auditions, rejections, and, yes, sometimes booking the job, I can attest that an auditioner’s actual job is to do your best…NOT to get the job! Making someone else’s decision is as much out of your control as the situation you are born into!
I encourage you to strive for excellence with what God gives you, one day at a time, and to let God be the ultimate casting director in your life. Let God give you your purpose, prepared in advance just for you!

Training to improve the rest of your life happens one stroke at a time!
