The One Thing Christians Should Stop Saying

Wow. This is a powerful one. I too find myself saying the words “blessed” as easily as I say hello to a passing stranger. It makes me wonder why I consider those things blessings and how I should perhaps re-evaluate the kind of God I have created in my mind. What I should be pondering is what HE tells us it means to be blessed and regardless of all earthly circumstances remain in a state of eucharist and thankfulness.

The Accidental Missionary

I was on the phone with a good friend the other day.  After covering important topics, like disparaging each other’s mothers and retelling semi-factual tales from our college days, our conversation turned to the mundane.

“So, how’s work going?” he asked.

For those of you who don’t know, I make money by teaching leadership skills and helping people learn to get along in corporate America.  My wife says it’s all a clever disguise so I can get up in front of large groups and tell stories.

I plead the fifth.

I answered my buddy’s question with,

“Definitely feeling blessed.  Last year was the best year yet for my business.  And it looks like this year will be just as busy.”

The words rolled off my tongue without a second thought.  Like reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or placing my usual lunch order at McDonald’s.

But it was a lie.

It Would Be Spiritual Suicide

Found this AHmazing post on The Better Man Project’s wordpress. His message is one I imagine every human on this planet since the very beginning of it has either heard, needed or here or given themselves to a friend in need.
I let fear take control far too often so it is so important to remind myself the beauty in letting go of that fear and embracing the courage I know is somewhere deep inside…deep…deep inside. I just need to find it.

Thank you for this post, Evan! The world needs more people like you.


It Would Be Spiritual Suicide.

| Time to Wake Up |

Dear You,

So, I just came across this video while surfing the world wide web and I have the overwhelming feeling it something to be shared.

If you’re tired, hungry, thirsty, confused, frightened, lonely, depressed, or in need..of anything…please watch this video. And, if you’re not…watch this video because I think you might find that your heart was trying to tell you something perhaps you couldn’t hear over the monotonous hum of a day-to-day routine.

Let yourself be captivated by this video. I know I was. Just close your eyes, make some tea, and sit by yourself and just listen (maybe not in that order).

Love, Genny xx


The Leverage of Beverage | 16, 18 or 21?

A wee podcast we had to do for class today. We were originally supposed to talk about Scottish Independence/Referendum but we decided the topic of the drinking age would be much more…captivating and perhaps enlightening. In my group, there were 3 of us–two scots et moi, an American. With little prep time, we made the decision to discuss why the drinking age is 21 and 18 in each of our respective nations and how we feel about it. ENJOYYYYYYYYYYY.
