Passion or something else? You decide.


My friend Pastor Paul Grabill shared this video and I wanted to pass it along.  I think this man might need a little help.  (The man in the video, not Paul Grabill...lol)

My first reaction upon seeing this video was..."this man may need a little medication to balance him out, bless his heart..."  I say that seriously, not making fun of anyone who needs such.

Some call it passionate, but I'm honestly not sure. What do you think?

Although I was not laughing or joking about my thoughts concerning him possibly needing some help, I will admit that I did laugh quite a bit watching this video and have viewed it five times.  I  play funny video clips for my Sunday School class on the big screen prior to the official start time of class.  While they are getting their coffee and settling in before we begin our lesson, I'll often play a favorite Youtube clip I've found that has really hit my funny bone.  I showed this yesterday and they almost fell off their chairs they were laughing so hard.   The funniest line for me is, "I have a Master's Degree in Communication!!!"  I must say, this is the first time I have heard a hell, fire and brimstone stump speech.

By the way he did not get the nomination.

OMW !!! ROTFLMBO !! Give that man a pill, a B vitamin for his nerves, and take away the degree. Had to have been a pay off somewhere! LOL To think of that man in power...even as dog catcher, is very scary! Thanks for a Monday morning laugh! :)

I think he needs anger management and a nice long vacation!
He was on Fox News today, interviewed by Megyn Kelly. I couldn't believe how composed he was!!! The way he articulated himself on Fox today I tell you, he probably could have gotten that nomination. What in the world got into him before he gave that speech? Sheesh!

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…
