Christians need to step up! We need to be out there doing the things God has called us to do, and we don't need to be afraid of stepping out and talking about our faith...

If you allow them to be, your rock-bottom moments can really be a garden for many things to grow.

Love is what God wants from me, from all of us, and faith isn’t based on righteous certainty. It’s based on knowing nothing, and being okay with the vulnerable space that places us in.
It is that space that connects us all.

You rise early in the morning, set up a pristine space at a cute little wooden table,
throw in your favorite cup of tea or coffee, your favorite bible with the flawless,
crispy pages, and VOILA! You are now ready to meet with the Lord.
This is the Holy Grail combo deal of spiritual disciplines that a person can get in one
sitting. It usually involves Bible reading, reflection, prayer, journaling, solitude,
and—you guessed it—quiet. We are taught that it’s best to do it first thing in the
morning before you get your day started because then and only then will you be
ready to face the world.
Sounds incredible, doesn’t it? But let’s be honest: most of us are not meeting with
the Lord like this everyday.

When you have purpose, it's the tie that binds your whole life together and everything just begins to flow.
Don't hate me for suggesting you give away your amazing gifts and talents for free. I promise there is a method to my madness.
I recently had the honor of hearing the great graphic artists Paula Scher speak at an AIGA event. During her talk, she poured out hard-learned lessons, industry commentary, and well honed advice gleaned over her 40-year career.
We were all eating up every word, until she she said, "You should work for free." An audible gasp could be heard in the auditorium when the slide came up. "How could the queen of design, my heroine of typography say such a thing?," was all I could think.

One of my favorite things about being a director is that you have the opportunity to give people the confidence they don’t have...I try to instill the confidence that was instilled in me into others. — Caleb
This will get messy. But, I got you. - God #verseinanutshell
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:3-5 NLT

"Yes, I'm good at creating content ... I think I am being presented with these [opportunities] to be the light and rekindle people's fire." — GJ
I pray Philippians 4:6-9 over you. I see the insecurities, worries, anxiety, and fear that sometimes lead your actions. In response, you lash out to make others feel small...like you do. I see those actions, but hear "I have to prove my worth, because I don't believe I have any."

I was tired of carrying these generational curses. I just told God I want it out. I want it done. I want your will in my life ... so I started to acknowledge not who I was but who I wanted to be in Him. — Keith
I have a method to my bracket madness.
I pray you see what God has seen in you all along. That the goodness and greatness of you come forward, and past hurt melts away. That you rediscover the amazing person you were before the pain.
Way too many things have happened in the last 6 months. Since August I have experienced a couple of family emergencies, two health scares, Hurricane Harvey, and work craziness. All in all, the final gasps of 2017 kicked my butt.
