Q&A with Andy Bondurant

I have known Andy since the 1970s. I am so happy to be able to share a bit of his story with you in this Q&A forum.

Andy and his Family
What is the name and URL of your blog?
Andy Bondurant | AndyBondurant.com
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a full-time pastor, part-time writer who lives in Shawnee, Kansas. In addition to pastoring and writing, I also have a small t-shirt company (also at AndyBondurant.com). Every shirt has a story or purpose, and every shirt sold helps send a child to school.

I grew up in Olathe, Kansas (KC Suburb), and I’ve lived all over in the Kansas City area - from downtown to suburbs to rural. My wife, Kia, and I have been married for 20+ years, and we have 4 children.

In my spare time, I play and coach basketball and soccer, I binge watch The Blacklist, and I watch/listen to the Kansas City Royals.

A little known fact about me - I am related to the bad Bondurant boys in Lawless (my grandfather’s first cousins).
Share a few sentences or a paragraph about your blog.
I've found most people struggle to connect with God, so I created a tool to take the first step down the path of peace of mind and heart.

I write about life, leadership and faith. Every person has a story to tell through their life. The story only comes through finding freedom. The way we become free is living intentionally.

I write about how to live a free and intentional life, so you can tell a great story.
Share a URL link to one of your favorite blog posts and why it is a favorite.
http://andybondurant.com/2015/05/13/the-goliath-principle/ :: I had a professor in college who filled in for the regular prof while he was on sabbatical. In his 80s, Dr Metz was completely real. His response to a question so impacted me, I still can’t get it out of my head 20 years later.
Where do you find your inspiration to blog.
Daily bible reading, podcasts (Bethel sermons, This American Life, Serial, Andy Stanley Leadership, and more), reading books and news articles, observing life around me
Share your favorite quote and how it affects you or speaks to you.
I’m not a big quote guy. I tend to forget them as fast as I hear them. Here’s one I’ve enjoyed lately -

“Dream big dreams. Small dreams leave no room for miracles.” That’s my version of this quote from Dottie Boreyko, “Dream big dreams. Small dreams have no magic.”

Anything bigger than me requires help from others and God. Big, bold, outlandish dreams require God to come through. I love that thought.
Share a paragraph about anything that you are passionate about.
This week, I released my first eBook. It’s a collection of 30 devotions. It’s free, and I would love to share it with you. Sign up for it here: http://bit.ly/1XklPZi
