Erwin McManus is a Pastor who is passionate about creativity and spirituality. His Catalyst talk was amazing! Everyone loved what he said so much, that his new book The Artisan Soul sold out at the book stations.  He said that we have a battle between awakening the wonder and conforming.

I am sure, if you’ve been alive for any length of time, you’ve had to clean up after someone else. You do not have to be a parent for this to happen. Some of my best friends are dog parents, and we all know that dogs can make messes too. Thursday nights, I go to my friends’ studio for Zumba, …

Margaret Feinberg looks like a tiny woman with a HUGE amount of spunk, energy, and zeal. I have seen her at Catalyst Conference once before. She gave away her book then called “Scouting the Divine”. I like how she thinks about things. In July of 2013 she was diagnosed with cancer. She was already a speaker, author, Bible teacher, living …

They are Christian rappers, so their music is good, clean, and points people to God. I did not know until just before Catalyst …

Monday night my work hosted an event. I volunteered to put food on the plates. The servers came through the lines holding two …

Dr. Brene’ Brown spoke on managing shame. Her website is http://brenebrown.com/  She said, “If you are brave enough, you WILL fall.” There are three ways we handle it: 1. We move away from it. 2. We shrink down. (People please) 3. We fight. “When something hard happens to us, emotions get the 1st crack at how we handle it. We are emotional, …

Andy Stanley said many more awesome things at Catalyst, but one jumped out at me.  He said, “Dads, don’t let your wonder shut down in you. If you do, it will shut down in your kids and what God has planned for your kids.” That pulled at my heart so much. There are parents who gave up dreams and careers …

 Nothing in my readings this morning particularly jumped out at me. I write what I feel inspired to write. This morning, I prayed, “Father, what do you want me to write about on my blog?” I felt like He said, “Remind them of how much I love them.” I thought, “Ok, I can do that!”  So here is my attempt …
