It’s Monday!

- Great weekend and we got a lot of stuff done around the house. Specifically my wife did an awesome job with our flower beds!
- My brother is graduating this weekend and I’ll be flying out to Huntington. Can’t wait to hang out with my family but to also spend some time with some old friends.
- Every now and then I look for some fun things to lighten up my day…most recently that has been through the blog “Texts From Dog”. If you haven’t been to this site yet, and you have a dog, you have to go. It’s worth it.
- If you like action movies, you should see the Avengers. I you like Marvel comics, you NEED to see the Avengers. One of my favorite movies in a while. The Marvel movies keep getting better and better.
- This weekend we hosted two churches at LCBC for something we call Saturdays @ LCBC. We do our best to share the “why” behind what we do. I got to hear the debrief session for the one church called Living Waters. They are in the middle of tweaking and changing some things at their church. Keep an eye on them, they have some solid staff and volunteers and a passion like I haven’t seen in a long time. They are going to be brining their best, I can just tell.

What’s new in your world?

It’s Monday!

It’s another week! Here we go!

  • This week was pretty eventful for us, our puppy got fixed. It was quite the experience as we learned how to care for her. But she’s back to her normal crazy self.
  • I love it when my friends or those I work with succeed!
  • I need to get back on my work out schedule and may need you to help keep me accountable. Any ideas?
  • We are about to jump into May this week and I have something big going on each weekend! It’s always a challenge to take time off in those busy weeks. I’m finding that learning how to manipulate my schedule and adapt is key to not burning out.
  • You know how I mentioned Jack White’s new album last week…yeah, it’s good. You should at least check it out and give it a try.

Here’s a question, I’d love to hear how you get your new music. iTunes? Spotify? Amazon? Let me know below!

It’s Monday!

Here’s what’s new and fun in my world….

  • Lights has been my go to music lately. I love listening to her while driving, working, sleeping… ok, just kidding about sleeping.
  • Her album may get bumped soon, because I pre-ordered Jack White’s album and I’m very excited about it. (Also you can stream it on iTunes)
  • This series of videos from Irving Bible Church on the story of Hosea are incredible. Extremely moving with just music and acting, no words.
  • I’ve been pretty much stretched to new limits when it comes to leading lately. Mostly, I’m trying to continue learning how to influence an organization and mindsets while not being in the meetings where big decisions are made. I’m also learning how to focus on strengths when leading and pulling them out instead of weaknesses.
  • Along that thought, how many meetings do you usually have in a weeks time?
  • I’ve been in a season of re-organizing my schedule and I’m starting to wonder if I should be doing this quarterly, annually, etc.
  • If you are looking for a quick jump into some Bible passages, or want to learn more about praying, you should check out LCBC’s A.C.T.S. Bible Reading Plan on YouVersion. It’s real short, daily prayer’s and reflections.

What’s new in your world? I’d love to hear an answer to my question above. How many meetings are you usually in during the weeks time?

It’s Monday!

Well, here we are at the start of another week! I hope you had a good weekend and hope even more that this is the start of a great week and maybe something new. Here’s what’s been going on around my neck of the woods.

  • This weekend I ate Taco Bell for the first time in 6 years. See you at the border in another 6!
  • On Saturday I changed my power steering fluid and reservoir in my truck. It took me about 1.5hrs and maybe saved me $150?
  • In other news, I have a new found appreciation for mechanics.
  • If you haven’t heard about or seen Cain’s Arcade yet, check out the video below. It’s worth the time and will inspire to you to create something. (HT: Creatives)
  • Make sure you follow SlickDeals on Twitter. You never know when something will pop up that you’ve been waiting for. Last week I ordered a ZaggMate Keyboard Case for my iPad. Usually $99 and I got it for $25! Boom!
  • Last week we took out puppy Lola for her first haircut. We went to Kathy Bair at Pampered Pups and she did a great job. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen plenty of pictures of Lola and her new haircut.
  • Last week I started the Shaping Culture course through the LIFT online classes that Willow Creek Association offers. One week into it and lots to think about already. Check out their class options here.
  • The weather has been getting a little bit warmer around here and it’s been nice to spend sometime outside. Can’t wait for us to bust out the patio furniture and have our first porch party of the year. When it gets nice out what’s your favorite thing to do outside?

What’s new in your world?

It’s Monday!

Except, it’s Tuesday. I would have posted this on Monday but a lot of people were off and probably wouldn’t have caught this post. ANYWAYS… I’m going to be tinkering around with a new blog post idea here on Mondays and have the normal content for my blog post on Wednesdays. So, I won’t be changing content wise what my blog is about, but Monday will be more of a run down of 8-10 things from the weekend or past week. Also, the name might change for the Monday posts.

So, here’s the first It’s Monday! post!

 

  • Easter was this past Sunday. I put in a lot of hours at work and I’m beat.
  • Speaking about work, I recently added another role to my job. Director of Campus Producers. I’ll probably explain more of the down the road. (Or you can ask me if you see me)
  • Facebook bought Instagram. Yeah???!!!
  • Our cute puppy has loved gnawing on my hands. I’m hoping it’s a teething phase.
  • I tried to do a home improvement project on our patio this weekend and failed miserably.
  • My friend Rene was telling me about Skrillex. I downloaded it and love it! Maybe I’ll learn how to dub-step next.
  • I think Tweetbot is becoming my new iOS Twitter client of choice.
  • It’s a four day week! (For some people)
