Reflections


This questionnaire was on another pastor's wife's blog and I found it interesting, so decided to copy it here and answer it, just for the fun of it. Reflecting is fun, at least I find it to be. Happy Sunday everbody! Let's seize this day for all it's worth! This IS the day the Lord has made and I for one am believing for BIG things to happen. Okey dokey here we go with reflections... 

1. What’s the most fun work you’ve ever done, and why?
For the majority of my ministry, my work has always been fun. Even when in an abusive church situation, aside from the difficulties with a few people, the work of the ministry that I love so much was always fun. This is because I truly believe if you REALLY love what you do and are passionate about it, you'll never work a day in your life! 

2. Name one thing you did in the past that you no longer do but wish you did?
Oh wow. Well the truth is, most things I want to do, I do. I go after them. I guess if I had to name something it would be taking off in the middle of the night or anytime we wanted to on a date. (usually an all night diner). I miss the total spontaneity although we do planned dates all the time, there's something to be said for being spontaneous. When my inlaws are here or we are there, we usually do something like that knowing it's totally cool with them. Or anytime we find ourselves "kid-less." Just think, in 9 years, that will be my life again all the time! 

3. Name one thing you’ve always wanted to do but keep putting it off?
Not too many things...like I said, when I want something I typically voraciously go after it. But I guess if there was anything, it would be spending more time on continuing my education, which I am doing, but very slowly. I have chosen to put my family & the church first and I know I won't regret it.

4. What two things would you most like to learn or be better at, and why?
First, I want to learn to speak spanish. I don't know how fluent I could ever be because I have been advised you really need to take a spanish course pretty much daily for at least a year. A once a week class I could handle. Not sure about more than that at this point in my life. Second, I would like to be better at the piano

5. If you could take a class/workshop/apprentice from anyone in the world living or dead, who would it, be and what would you hope to learn from it?
I have a long list. My head is spinning just thinking about it. Right now I'm actually doing life coaching and getting a tremendous amount from it. But if I had to pick one person, it would be John Maxwell. 

6. What three words might your best friends or family use to describe you?
Driven. Passionate. Detailed.

7. Now list two more words you wish they described you as…
Godly, Affectionate

8) What are your top three passions? (can be current or past, work, hobbies, or causes)
1) Partnership Ministry.
2) Reaching the lost.
3) Women's Ministries 

9. Write–and answer–one more question that YOU would ask someone if you were writing this questionnaire.
I would ask them ~ what makes you get up in the morning?
For me, it's more than my alarm! I love to sleep. I have to have a significant reason, besides getting my daughter to school, that I need to get up for in the morning. For me, my heartbeat everyday is ministry. I wake up ready to not just seize the day but to attack it, to take it for all it's worth, to look for divine appointments around every corner, and to see God move.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
