C.S. Lewis Chronicles

The past few months I’ve been reading, C.S Lewis Chronicles of Narnia. It’s been really exciting to read something so different to what I’m normally use to reading. I’m not one to read fantasy and not even non-fiction but I kept hearing about how great they were, and the deep meaning CS Lewis paints in his book.Continue reading “C.S. Lewis Chronicles”

The Dream Job Myth

My dream job was to work inside a very trendy creative building next to a window. As for what I did all day, I wasn’t sure. I did imagine working at a desk and at times walking around to make a copy. Blame my dream job on the WB network and the programming they had inContinue reading “The Dream Job Myth”

The World is Waiting

As creatives we live these busy lives with the pressure to imagine the unimaginable. We are asked to inspire the world even when we ourselves don’t feel inspired. Where to run when everywhere is already filled with a person. Our heart is telling us to change the world but our bank accounts reminds us ofContinue reading “The World is Waiting”

The Bonhoeffer Plan 

One of my favorite theologians, who was a martyr for plotting to kill Hilter, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, had this deep spiritual life with God. Last year I read his biography by Eric Metaxes and learned about his devotional lifestyle that he taught his seminary students.  I often find myself getting bored or distracted when I sitContinue reading “The Bonhoeffer Plan “

Book: Church History in Plain Language

I found myself with a lot of questions about how, why, when, who is who when it came to church history. As a someone who works and goes to a large church you can understand why I developed these questions. I’d often hear the wisdom of others share knowledge about different theologians but I wanted to studyContinue reading “Book: Church History in Plain Language”

Not So Brilliant Advice

It makes me nerves writing a post now a days. I read books of professional thinkers, listen to podcast of the intellectual elite, and read tweets from almost famous people. How can I compete? I can’t, so I won’t, but what I do have, and what you have is whoever you are. I use myContinue reading “Not So Brilliant Advice”

Middle of No Where

I’ve always wondered why people fled the city life to go hang out in the middle of no where for their vacations. Every paid vacation from work is like fine gold, every moment must be used to have the highest level of fun and inspiration. My ideal vacation is to travel thousands of miles awayContinue reading “Middle of No Where”

Exploring the City with Aussie Friends

One of the greatest benefit about living in California is Los Angeles is close by. The first time I went there I was probably around 17 years old. I remember hearing about LA from movies and seeing it on my freeway signs – west to go to Los Angeles and east Palm Springs but I never really gaveContinue reading “Exploring the City with Aussie Friends”

Leading When No One is Looking – Lessons from my Dad

Some of the most important life lessons I’ve learned is from watching my father when he didn’t know I was looking. I watched moments when my dad would stop to listen to someone who needed help. I’ve had to wait for my parents after church because they were talking to a new family who was down and out. They bothContinue reading “Leading When No One is Looking – Lessons from my Dad”

Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon was one of the most beautiful sites I’ve ever seen. I stood at the edge of the cliff saying out loud many times, “I can’t believe this is real.”  I’m from the generation that everything we see is pretty much fake, its hard to realize what is real at times. But when standingContinue reading “Grand Canyon”

Travel to Claremont

I often say a day off from work is like fine gold, the value is greater than a normal weekend. Something fun must be done with the time.  Staying home and relaxing would be like missing an opportunity to invest in a great stock. In California the biggest drawback is traffic, so what ever is done hasContinue reading “Travel to Claremont”

Design’s Best Friend – Font

What is it about book covers that draws us in closer to open up to the first page – and even causes us to buy? As I walked around the book store I noticed fiction book’s had the most creative and engaging covers. I began to look around to see which books grabbed my attention most, then askingContinue reading “Design’s Best Friend – Font”

The first question I’d ask you is why do you want a camera? Once you share your passion and excitement then’ll I’ll crush it by asking how much moneyContinue reading “Finding the right camera for you”

Book: Miracles by Eric Metaxas

I admit, I have a writer’s crush on Eric Metaxas, author of one of my favorite books, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy. It started when I watched all the videos about him on youtube, then followed him on twitter. His speeches and random humor made me feel like we were friends. I was excited whenContinue reading “Book: Miracles by Eric Metaxas”

Book: Misfits Welcomed by Matthew Barnett

I am finding the best audio books to enjoy are the ones where the author shares lots of stories. It’s like being able to sit with them personally to hear all that has happen in their life. I saw Matthew Barnett tweet about his new book, Misfits Welcomed a while back and left a comment,Continue reading “Book: Misfits Welcomed by Matthew Barnett”

“I wish I read more.”

 The past year I’ve gotten into the habit of reading and finishing books. It use to take me 6 months to complete a book. The problem; I couldn’t stay still long enough to focus. The moment I would sit to enjoy a book, my mind would wonder leaving me frustrated I didn’t understand what I wasContinue reading ““I wish I read more.””
