Are You a LifeChanger? {Podcast Episode #56}


On this episode, we talk about:

  • Seeing ourselves as LifeChangers
  • What is a LifeChanger?
  • How the concept of a LifeChanger turned into this podcast
  • How you can make a difference right where you are


It’s a series about people like you and me, who decided to do something different.

They decided to change their life, or the lives of others around them.

They are inspiring.

They are making an impact right where they are.

They are passionate.

They are full of life.

And they are willing to share their stories.

I’d love hear what you think.

Do you consider yourself a LifeChanger? Why or why not?

Empty Shelf Challenge Books #17-21

empty shelfThis year, I joined Jon Acuff and hundreds of others in filling an empty shelf on our bookshelves. You can read more about it here. I’ve had a combination of different pictures for my shelf, as sometimes I include kindle books, and now I’ve started a separate stack of books in my office.

This post is covering books #17-21, which as you can see, all relate to my position as the Connections & Growth Director at our church. Most of these are relating to small groups and community and volunteers.

17. Simply Strategic Volunteers – I really liked this book. It was filled with short, helpful chapters addressing many different ways to help your volunteers feel appreciated and ideas to think about as you lead. If you are involved at all with volunteers in an organization, I highly recommend this book.

18. Organic Community – I really liked this, as it talks about how you can’t force community and you have to find ways to foster organic growth and connections within your church community.

19. Activate – This also dealt with small groups and community, and how to help encourage people to get involved.

20. Creating Community – This book talked about ways to develop and encourage connections and community within your church. Andy Stanley and his team share how they have created a small group culture in their church.

21. Missional Small Groups – This book was a great look at how people are successfully implemented missional small groups. These types of group intentionally look outward and see how they can serve and meet the needs of those around them. I learned some great concepts through this book.

I’d love to hear of any books you’ve read relating to community and small groups and leading volunteers. Share in the comments below!

Startiversary {Podcast Episode #55}


It’s been one year since Jon Acuff sent out a cryptic message that simply said, “Adventurers wanted.” I had no idea it would lead to an experience that would be so incredibly powerful. I have met people from all over the country and made friendships that have enriched my life. Even though I felt I had “started” a few years earlier, this group has helped continue to push me to be better and make positive changes in my life.

On this episode, we talk about:




One of my favorite quotes from Start.

Thanks for listening! Please leave an honest review on iTunes. I’d be so honored!



What are you launching?

This weekend, some friends are gathering for an awesome weekend of Launching dreams. They’re gathering in Tulsa, OK at a conference put on BY dreamers FOR dreamers.

You can follow along on Twitter or Facebook by using the hashtag #Launchout.

I’m so excited for them. Many will be speaking publicly for the first time about their dreams and what they are working on. Also, the group is just amazingly supportive and helpful, and some powerful connections will be made by spending time together in person.

So, this brings me to the questions I have asked before, and I always love to hear your responses to.

What are you working on? Where is your dream taking you? How can we celebrate with you?
