Reaching other countries for Christ may not be as difficult as you think.
I recently had the privilege to write an article for One Christian Voice Christian Magazine about Pastor Kevin Brown of Lighthouse Church in Harrisburg, PA about just that. Thinking outside the box that we create for ourselves when it comes to serving in foreign missions.
The article also appeared in the Southern Jersey Once Christian Voice version of the magazine as well as the Philadelphia version.
I challenge you … think outside the box when it comes to reaching others for Christ.
That is … if you dare.

Last Thursday was supposed to be the season where families got together; celebrated their special closeness.
How’d you do?
Know it wasn’t an accident you were placed with your family. God’s plan put you there. With that in mind, let me ask again. How’d you do?
Did you hang on to your old mantra:
“I don’t want to be hurt anymore.” “You don’t know what they did to me.” “We have nothing in common; it’s best we just keep our distance and live our lives apart.”
Sorry, I think God calls shenanigans.
Is there a story in you, thrashing around to get out? Is your glass half full or half empty—or is the substance in your glass dancing and whirlpooling?
You could be a writer-in-waiting.
Check out Edie Melson’s post. It offers seven tips on how to be ready when inspiration hits.
Be ready. Offer your impressions to life. Tell your story. There are others who are waiting to read what you have to write.
The definition of a meme is a concept or idea that is shared on the internet. It can be anything from an image … email … or video. However the most common meme is an image with a caption. Because both words and images are used, memes resonate with people more than just words or images alone.
I love creating memes that share positivity and I’ve dedicated a page on my website, Shareables and Quotes, to post memes I’ve created. And I’m thrilled to share them with you. All pictures are my property and are appropriate to copy. Feel free to snag any and use them to emphasize what you’re trying to say.
I will be adding new memes periodically, so don’t be a stranger. Come back and see what’s new.
Don’t be shy! Let me know what you think.
I never tire of reading Brandon J. Adams’ posts. As a baby boomer, I am encouraged by his fresh insight. Sharing Brandon’s posts is an honor.
Are you following him yet? If not, do yourself a favor and sign up … see what he has to say. Take a chance and listen to a millennial who may have an insight you’re not expecting to see.
His latest, Was Your Mind Made Up? holds not only millennials accountable, but the rest of us as well.
Way to go, Brandon. I felt my toes appropriately stepped on … in a good way.
Writing isn’t as glamorous as it may seem. There are long hours with no promise of success. You sweat. Dream. You claw your way from one page onto another. You pull words and together then delete others. It can be a challenging process.
Now try writing after suffering TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).
That’s what Martin Johnson does. Read his guest post on Almost an Author, Writing with a Disability. You’ll want to cry. Then cheer. But one way or another, you’ll see the writing process differently. Thanks, Martin for sharing your journey. You can follow Martin on Twitter at
Acceptance. It’s what we want, but do we offer it? Instead, we tend to exasperate those who see life differently than we do.
We’re all different. It may not seem like it, but none of us share the exact experiences that would make us the same. Some came from a comfortable home life and solid family of origin, while others struggled with empty bellies and absentee parents.
We may look the same, go to the same schools or even read the same books. But a time comes … something happens … then POW out of nowhere, differences appear.
Our feelings get hurt, or we hurt someone else’s feelings. It’s sad, really. Because we are not the same and inevitably, diversity in how we think or see the world appear.
The answer: Celebrate differences! Learn from one another. Because really, who else do we learn from than those who are different than us?

Every day we have is a gift from God. I pray you will be blessed by what you hear.
It’s human nature to want to be all we can be. The United States Army tapped into that personal need in 1980 and came up with a catchy slogan and ad campaign:
We’re exposed to lots of choices as we begin our lives. We learn to set goals, beginning with walking, coloring in the lines and even going from eating “ba-sketti” with our hands to mastering “spaghetti” with a fork. As we grow older, we plot, plan, and strive to hit newer, more advanced marks of success. We strive to be all we can be.
