Broadcast Date: August 8, 2017

A popular saying in politics says, “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” So if perfection is your expectation of what intentional living is, then please re-aim your focus! Dr. Randy gets more deeply in to this part of his teaching on today’s program. And Senior Producer Steve Tanner wraps up his intentional interview with Bill Simmons of American Leprosy Missions.

Intentional Living is the name of our ministry and radio program. But what does it really mean? Is it about perfection? Is it about getting what I want? Is it about serving God, or about taking care of your family? Dr. Randy breaks it down in this 4-part lesson which begins today.

Program Guest Today

Bill Simmons, President,  American Leprosy Missions

Do you realize that leprosy is not just some obscure disease we read about in the Bible? it is still around today, and American Leprosy Missions is doing something about it. Bill Simmons is the very intentional president of ALM. He joins us for a portion of the program today.

Bill Simmons is passionate about the mission of American Leprosy Missions. He sets the pace of the organization, helping to maximize the team’s potential. He brings more than twenty years of management experience to his role having served as President and CEO of two nationwide, Christian, retail chains.

Born in Tennessee, Bill spent his teenage years in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (then Zaire), where his parents were missionaries. He graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in political science. Bill has served on the boards of several non-profit organizations.
