Want to try something really funny?

I have an idea.  Google your name and then the word "wants".   See what the first ten things say.  I just thought this would be funny to do.  Here's what came up tonight for my name:

"Deanna wants a picture of her teeth!"
"Deanna wants the main color to be brown."
"Deanna wants Jason back."
"Deanna wants it all."
"Deanna wants to be home, closer to her family."
"Deanna wants to be married and make sure she plans an active part in her children's lives."
"Deanna wants to see the fun side!"
"Deanna wants to have three kids by thirty!"  (I did, by the way.)
"Deanna wants to get on with it!"
"Deanna wants to pursue personal goals."

Google your name, just for fun!

OK, I don’t think I have ever posted on your site. I think you are brilliant by the way baby! And no, I am not in the dog house or sleeping on the couch for all of you readers. In fact I have never had to sleep on the couch in 22 years of marriage, that is unless Deanna joined me there! I thought I would give the whole google thing a shot and see what came up. Here was my results…
Whatever Larry Wants, Larry Gets (wouldn’t that be nice)
Larry wants $12.3 billion more (what happened to the first 12.3 billion?)
Larry Wants YOU!! (Deanna that one is for you!)
Larry wants woohoo but she doesn’t feel like it. (……)
LARRY WANTS A LEGEND (I am married to one!)
Larry wants to take care of himself, but he needs some help. (I try)
Larry wants a hug. (Don’t we all?)
Larry wants to know what other plants families used to survive in the coal camps, especially what they would gather in the woods. (I guess I just had to know!)
Larry wants to see full frontal shoes photos. (That sounds kinda creepy)
Larry wants to find someone who already has kids (To help add more kids to the church?!?)
Larry wants you to check out a photo on MySpace (It is a picture of full frontal shoes!)
Larry wants me to try some of his custom-made Viagra. (OK, I think I will quit right there…)
Wow babe, you have graced my blog with a comment. This is a first. I think we need to celebrate tonight! :)

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…
