“Don’t Make It Painful”

There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts,

An online discussion is like a party or a game. People come because they want to have fun, grow, and learn about others. It takes courage to put oneself out there. It is a risk to one’s pride. That is the cost of playing.

20 Truths about Taking Massive Action

Massive Action creates turning points in life.

Think back to your major turning points — the times your life took a big change for the better.

  • You went out and found a new job — and committed to it.
  • You started a new relationship and went all-in.
  • You decided to start taking your health and your exercise seriously.
  • You made something, built something, or wrote a song, an essay, or a book.

20 Christian Bloggers on “Why Writing Matters”

It takes a lot to create a blog or website, but Christian leaders know it’s worth it.

I’m really excited about today’s post: this week 20 of my favorite Christian bloggers emailed me their reasons for writing! Some have a large following; others are just getting started. Combined, they reach over 200,000 email subscribers and the same number of twitter followers. These men and women inspire me with their high-quality content and their heart for spreading Christ’s message.

I know you’ll benefit from what they have to say. As you read through their words, envision what you too could do with an online platform.
