They did it!


No surprise, at least in our household nobody thought it was a shock. I mean, they've done it six times by now...it's not like it's rare.

When the Steelers win, I get a double blessing. I do believe they are an awesome team however aside from that, my husband is very happy and it makes for a good week in our house, versus him brooding and analyzing and wondering, "what went wrong?" But of course we are talking about the Steelers here, so those times are few and far between.

My mom loves this team (has since I was in high school). When you think of them, would you pray for her to be born again! She's getting up in age and doesn't know Jesus. 2as1
No celebration here in Houston. Mr. NFL cried. The Steelers knocked his favorite team the Chargers out of the playoffs so he was really cheering for Cardinals!

And I've seen pics of the new puppy...what happened to Gina? I think that was her name...
Pastor Lisa, Geena is with another family. (Truly she is, that is not code for anything else...lol) Geena was not a friendly dog and behavior kept getting worse. Perhaps we should have gotten the Dog Whisperer, but I dunno...anyway, she bit so many people or dogs (and we paid the bills from it) and you just can't have a mean dog in a pastor's home at least a pastor who always has people over. It got to the point where we realized she needed to be with maybe a single person or couple who did not entertain...and perhaps if they sent her to obedience school it would have helped although she is getting very old and probably doesn't have many years left. Anyway, that's what happened to Geena. We gave her to an agency that places with families and does not put them down, and always finds a place for them.

As for Maddie, look for more pics to come! So far Maddie is an angel and only loves up on anyone and everyone. We take her to church and keep her in our office during the services and we let her out right before and after because her bladder is still small and only holds for about an hour and a half to two hours.

Sorry about Mr. NFL's loss...I know it's hard when the team you were rooting for doesn't win and it seems that these boys/men take it so hard...

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…

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 …

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 thread no…
