Would you choose to...

There's a game that I downloaded onto my phone, called, "Would You Choose To..." and you vote on things such as:

Would you choose to...

  • Be super hairy or...be hairless
  • Go shirtless for the rest of your life or...go pantless for the rest of your life 
  • Be kicked in the face by an angry donkey or...be roundhouse kicked in the face by Chuck Norris
 So while I'm bored and waiting in line (after having checked my mail) I can flip through this game and make choices and see how I rate with the rest of the millions of people who have also voted on these things.  It's fun friday and I thought I'd make up my own today, just for fun.  That's right, forget about reality my friends, and let your mind wander a few moments into these scenarios...

Would you choose to...

  • Pastor the same preacher killer church for 30 years straight, or hang over a snake pit for 30 years?  Wait, isn't that the same thing??
  • Never be allowed to to wear a bra ever again, or always have to wear a bra 24/7?  Depends on if it's underwire...
  • Have your car stall in the middle of the busiest intersection in town or throw up on the grocery store conveyor belt?
  • Have to eat Cherrios for dinner 30 nights straight or be forced to drink only pomegranate juice with meals for 30 days straight?
  • Live in 103 degree heat for a week or temperatures of 10 below 0?  
  • Have your kids ask for your help with a science project due the next day that they haven't started on or have your husband tell you that four friends are coming for dinner in an hour...unexpectedly?
  • Live without eyeshadow the rest of your life or live without hairspray?
  • Be forced to wear pantyhose everyday for the rest of your life, or get a mammogram every Monday afternoon for life?  
  • Have a husband who insists on swearing Speedos in public or private for that matter or  or a son who insists on getting ear spacers (gauges)?
Have fun choosing on this Fun Friday...

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…
