It's a Blog Party!

I'm really excited about the new and improved Assembly of God blog ring under the leadership of it's founder, Sharon Snavely. What a great job she is doing of uniting people on the web. I'm so proud of her for all the hard work she has done on this landmark project.

To celebrate all God is doing through the new update, Sharon is throwing a blog party and several bloggers including yours truly are giving away door prizes!

Please check it out here.

Also if you are a blogger and you are affiliated with the Assemblies of God, I greatly encourage you to join not only the blog party, but the blog ring!

Hey PD is this something I can do also or is it just for ministers?
Not sure what your question is...

1) If it is can you participate in the blog party by signing up? Yes, anyone put their name in to receive a prize.

2) To give a prize? I am not sure you can write to Sharon and ask her by going to her blog page. I think you can.

3) Those on the blog ring just need to be affiliated with the AG. I believe you qualify for you that since you are a member of an AG church. You do not have to be a pastor, just be affiliated somehow. You would probably be under "individual" or "Mom" blogs as far as categories on the AG blog page.

Just go to the blog ring and sign up. You can join by going to the bottom right hand corner of my blog page...go down to where it says AG blog ring and join and click join.

I am sure Sharon will answer anything for you as well if you have further questions, just click on her screen name above.

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

No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, 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…
