Here’s what I’ve found to be super helpful this week.
This is a fun little blog (not so little at all actually). They do a great job of pulling together some really funny videos, and pictures. This is a great site to check out after a long hard day at work. So go check it out and enjoy a few good laughs!
Bill Hybels has easily been one of the men who has influenced me and my leadership. I am so grateful for this man. I have attended the Global Leadership Summit for many years now and have found that to be amazing. However, my favorite speaker each and every year without a doubt is Bill. I love the way that Bill is compassionate and real. He oozes with practical wisdom. And now you can get that hand delivered to your twitter feed… FOLLOW Bill Hybels.
Pete Wilson is another one of my favorites. I love the way that this dude loves his wife, his kids, and the church. The thing I love about Pete is that he does it in that order. Pete is not only a great pastor, but he is also an incredible writer. Pete has written a few books, but his most recent book Let Hope In has already proven to be incredible in my life. I am only 50 pages in and I can’t wait to read more! This is a must read… You can be certain that there will be a few posts here that are centered around some quotes out of this book!
I found this website from a co-worker the other day. It is so simple and so easy to use. I love it. I am planning a potluck style dinner at my house for our Nutley staff team. And because I don’t particularly care for everyone’s favorite-Aunt-Millie’s Casserole, I turned to perfect potluck. Perfect Potluck lets me set the menu and those who are invited are able to ‘sign-up’ to bring something to contribute towards the meal. Hence, no more Sunday After Church basement church potluck’s comprised of all side dishes.
Wow, do I love this! I have subscribed to iTunes match and this made my life even better. As you know I have been trying to become more self-disciplined (read about it here, and here). Well, iTunes radio has helped me get through the running portion of that self-discipline. If you listen to music when you exercise I highly recommend this. They have some great stations that play a variety of music. I love it! Some of my favorite channels right now are “Rev it Up” (exercise), “Chill Out: Ambient”, (writing) and my create your own collection: “Zion radio” (made up of stuff like Hillsong United), and “Fix You radio” (Made up of stuff like Coldplay).
