Review: Not of this World by Lisa Chan

I recently had the pleasure of previewing Lisa Chan's upcoming bible study DVD entitled 'Not of this World'. I popped in the DVD not sure what to expect and was instantly drawn in to Lisa's gentle and compelling reminder that this life I'm living now is temporary. Living life with eternity in mind is often easier said than done, but this study is a reminder that it is possible. We live in  a culture were people are privileged to live out their life as Christians, in peace. But often times the lives we live show nothing of our professed love of Christ. Somewhere in the midst of the day to day grind some of the most defining characteristics of Christianity (self-less love, sacrifice, humility, generosity, etc) get lost. Even myself, with the best of intentions, forget that my life is a living display of Christ love here on earth. Lisa challenged me to keep in the fore front of my mind that even though my time here is limited eternity is in fact Forever. 'Not of this world' shares beautiful Read more [...]

Ramblings and so on: What I’ve been up to

Ramblings: Where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. Confession: I have fallen completely off the blogging wagon. I was doing so well for a second there. I was inspired by the thought of successfully reaching the masses so I began researching my craft: blogging. I started looking towards some of the more successful blogs and really digging into what it takes to engage a reader and build a brand. The more I uncovered about successful blogging the less interested I became. There is so much behind the scenes that you never even imagine as a reader. So many rules, regulations, blog specific etiquette, and so on. It was such an overwhelming amount of information that all my blogging fire fizzled fast! Honestly, I’m a free-willed, free-spirited, creative type. Too much black and white literally oppresses my mental faculties. So I’ve come to the conclusion that I will instead get back to doing what I love most, and sharing it with you. These last few months have been quite hectic. Read more [...]
