Ten of my best blog posts


I've been told that I've written a ton of compelling stuff in the almost five years that I've been publicly blogging now. (Dang, has it been THAT long?!) If you've been a reader any length of time you know I write about everyday experiences ~ from what I ate when I got up this morning to leadership issues, current events, stuff that really frosts me and things I'm passionate about.

Some of my best posts are from years past and if people are new readers, they may not even know these gems are lurking. (Can a post lurk?)

So... I thought in honor of this fine Fun Friday that I'd just list ten of my favorite posts that I can think of off the top of my head. I know my sister is going to get to work this morning, open this up and say, "what?! nothing fresh?" Kim...don't get your panties in a bunch...just click these ten and read 'em (it will take you more time than anybody should ever spend at work) but when you're done you'll be reminded all over again why you think your sister is the most brilliant writer in the world. (GRIN)

Some of my favs, in no particular order:

1) Praise and Worship All the Time?

2) The Principles That Shape My Methods

3) Why You Should Have Sex As Much as Possible

4) Why I Have Several Christmas Trees

5) Why I Won't Sign Up For a Beating, parts one, two, and three.

6) Opportunity for Giving Through My Virtuous Woman Offering

7) Why We Don't Have "The Talk" at our House

8) Why You Shouldn't Compare Your Husband to an Appliance, a Food or a Planet

9) The Call of God...Changing?

10) I'm Deanna Shrodes, and I'm a Homeschooling Mom

and one more for good measure...

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
