Why I'm glad my husband wears Nike's


Okay, so this week I found what I consider to be an incredible turnoff…

“Meels”.

What are they? Heels for men.

I am NOT KIDDING. The picture here is REAL and this is a MALE. I hesitate to say man, because…to me a man is, well…a MAN, with a capital “M”. This guy here is really trying to make a male fashion statement - he is not a cross dresser, at least not in the true sense of the word.

What was this designer thinking? In case you are wondering, “Meels” are the latest fashion creation to hit the market, and they were created by a designer, Marjan Pejoski, who is hoping this idea catches on for men worldwide. I can say that excites me about as much as sliding down a razor blade into a vat of alcohol. Yikes!

You know, I consider myself to be a real adventurous, liberated type gal, the kind that wears five earrings in my ears, wild colors of nail polish (usually with designs on at least one of my toes/fingers), walks around my house in just a t-shirt and underwear most of the time if it's just my family, and if the kids aren't home, even less. (Is that TMI?) and a (gasp!) bikini on the beach occasionally. (Note: this is not very scandalous, for a pastor’s wife in Florida.) However…meels? No, no no. Absolutely NOT.

Men need to be…men. And no matter how fashion changes, I am sorry I just cannot accept a man in heels at least not without bursting out laughing at the sight of them.

You know, from time to time I have wanted a more “sensitive” type guy. I have wished my husband was a little more “metro”, a little more the emotional type. Sometimes I’ve thought, “why can’t he be a little more like me?” But now that I’ve seen meels? I’ll take my Nike-wearing, starter jacket wearing, sweaty, even keeled, unemotional macho man ANY DAY of the week.

Honestly, my husband’s heart starts beating faster with excitement when he sees me in a pair of heels, but if I saw him in a pair? I think I’d have a heart attack and die. What in the world was this designer thinking? I can’t imagine any women liking this.

What do you think? Women, would there be ANY attraction in this for you at all?

Uh...no. I married my husband so I could share my life with him. Not my shoes!! I wouldn't even wear heels that high...
lady sutton, I'm hollering over here! I know that's right! I wear the heels in this relationship!
I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this is TOTALLY gross!

As for me, I love to wear heels myself...they make me feel extremely feminine, which is one reason I could not handle them on a man.

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 is u…

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real."

After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just keeping …

What To Do First to Make a Profit

Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said:

It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way.
Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory!

I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started investing and training and all of that, seeking God for his blessing and…
