Why Am I Not Writing About Ministry and Theology As Much (Or At All)?

Today I had a fun little experience in which a guy who followed my online activity when I was active a year ago left a comment on a different site I currently own and operate. I then responded to him there and we exchanged a few pleasant words. He then said, “Hey by the way, I miss seeing you online and your writings. Where can I find you again?” *Quick thought: I freakin love encouraging people! Don’t you? This guy has always …

Building Out The Site. Working On Projects.

For those that follow this blog, you’ve likely noticed there’s been fewer postings as of late. Worse, it’s possible you feel there’s been fewer that really benefit you, practically speaking.

However, I want to let ya know that I’ve been busy building out the site – working behind the scenes and building pages. While the work is never done on a blog, I do hope to be ahead of the game and ready to post like a wild man in a week or so.

The other things I’ve been working on, besides life and leading a church, are a few big projects I have coming down the pipeline. All sorts of good stuff from blogs for other people and myself, to podcasts, and time-management / life planning resources. I’m super excited about them, and I can hardly wait to announce them. Just know that if you keep checking in you’re going to get some cool stuff real soon! Stay tuned!

“Who Do You Think You Are?” New Book By Mark Driscoll

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

“The fundamental problem we have in this world,” says Mark Driscoll, “is that we don’t understand who we truly are—children of God made in His image—and define ourselves by any number of things other than Jesus.”

I couldn’t agree with a statement more! This is why I’m excited to be announcing that Driscoll’s new book, dealing with this issue by examining the even greater book of Ephesians, releases today!

New Beginnings: Let’s Have A Great Year!

happy new year 2013 new beginnings jesus

So hoping that you saw my last post about fortune cookies (haha), let’s talk “redeeming power” real quick, shall we?

You know you even get excited to open your fortune cookie – even though you don’t believe in em! You do huh!? We are fascinated with possibilities and new beginnings aren’t we? We like stories and movies with them, new material goods, business start-ups, new relationships, births, kittens, puppies, and on and on. We just don’t always believe these things, this newness of life, can happen for us, do we?

News is though, that whatever might have been happened or not happened in this last year, I promise you that it’s not beyond God’s great and powerful ways to use it for people’s good and his glory! It’s been a fact we’ve focused on many times this last year. I bet you’ve had your share as well.

I believer it’s no coincidence that we celebrate new beginnings right after we’re supposed to celebrate the birth of Jesus. He is the only one who makes all things new! The giver of new beginnings!  (Rev 21:5; 2 Cor 5:17) He can take anything, and just like a wave over a scar in the sand, he can wash it away and make you as new!

wash away past wave over sand scar

Surrender it all, and let’s move forward. Together. …with Jesus!

Praying that you and yours had a wonderful Christmas and have a blessed and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Site Changes and Construction

Here Goes Migrating!

Site Changes and ConstructionI’m finally about to try my blog migration from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress! I’ve been looking forward to this for quite some time now! Oh the possibilities that await! I’m excited… incase that isn’t obvious.

UPDATE: For the most part, the migration (and total makeover) has gone well. Spiffy new paint job, wouldn’t you say?

However, please bear with me as it will take me the most of this month to get settled in and everything in order. I have TONS of little tweaks to make (as well as some big ones)! It’s a lot like moving into a new home!

I’m sure I’ll begin posting again, cause I just can’t help myself, but be patient with the older stuff and the links. Thanks a mess!

I serve as the Director and Editor-In-Chief of The Majesty’s Men, a multi-faceted ministry and brand I founded in 2013 focused on facilitating friendship and mentoring between Christian.

I build the site, manage our accounts and volunteers, lead the editing, and lead in strategy and marketing for TMM. It has been a wonderful and super challenging learning experience over the years and I have many more plans for the future!
