Church Leadership Giveaway In Celebration of @CatalystconferenceChurch Leadership Giveaway In Celebration of @Catalystconference

This week more than 10,000 church and business leaders are gathering in the Atlanta, Georgia for two inspirational days that brings together a community of change makers.

What a privilege and joy to be sharing the stage with Andy Stanley, Louie Giglio, Brene Brown, Erwin McManus, Scott Harrison, and so many other insightful speakers as we unlock what it means to Awaken to Wonder.

If you’re at Catalyst I’d love to see you! I’ll be teaching two labs on Wednesday and be on main stage at 3:30pm on Thursday.

But in the meantime, I want to share some resources with you that will help you as you serve and lead at church. Continue Reading...

Giving Away Some Treasures Today—Want One?

Over the last two years, I’ve been thrilled to host Writers Boot Camp with an amazing team. The first three events sold out in 48 hours. If you want to get on the wait list or be alerted if we host another, click here.

One of the biggest thrills is seeing people who have been through bootcamp release books implement the strategies we teach.

Jenny Simmons (of the band, Addison Road) is among those who have graduated from boot camp.

I’d been rooting for this sought-after musician and speaker like crazy, and am thrilled to now hold her new book, The Road to Becoming: Rediscovering Your Life in the Not-How-I-Planned-It Moments.

Let’s be honest: Lots of people write books. Few are written well.

Jenny’s writing is beautiful, the story compelling, and her desire for God contagious.

I don’t say that lightly.

In a world where publishing is being pummeled by more “platforms” than artistry, those who fill books with clichés and spiritual baby food, Jenny is a stand-out, must-read author.

We're giving away a copy of Jenny's new book, and also including a copy of her CD, To Be Well. You’ll love, love, love.

Leave a comment on the original blog post below to enter to win.

Winners will be selected and announced on Friday, September 25th.

Congratulations to the winner: Beth

Giveaways You Don’t Want to Miss: Candace Cameron Bure, Jen Hatmaker, Emily Freeman

When I worked as a journalist early in my writing career, I interviewed Kirk Cameron multiple times. Kirk’s kindness, thoughtfulness and passion for Christ made a lasting impression on Leif and I. To this day, whenever we see him at events, he remembers our names, asks about our lives, and still walks in remarkable graciousness. Continue Reading...

Invisible by Jennifer Rothschild

When my friend, Jennifer Rothschild, told me about her new book I couldn’t way to get my hands on Invisible: How You Feel Is Not Who You Are.

A gifted writer and Bible teacher, Jennifer doesn’t shy away from hard issues or the struggles of life. Her newest book is no exception. Jennifer explores the story of Gomer, a person chosen and loved but prone to wander—a person like you or me.

Yet Jennifer gently reminds us: Continue Reading...

Win The Gift Package Fit for a Queen: The Woman of the Bible Everyone Needs to Learn

When my friend, Liz Curtis Higgs, said she planned to pen a book about a woman in the Bible based on 10 verses, I thought, “That’s impossible!”

A chapter of a book.

A section of a Bible study.

A single talk.

But an entire book that provides meaty insights and life-transformative truths. Yet that’s what Liz has done with beauty, mastery, and grace.

Who is this amazing woman? Continue Reading...
