The 2013 Technology That Changed My Life

Sometimes it is the little technologies that make a big difference. My great discovery from 2013 is voice-to-text technology.



I am a reasonable two-handed typist (I'm sure I'm over 25 words a minute), but find I make frequent mistakes and end up being quite inefficient. I had tried to use the…

Media's Dirty little Secret

Ready for a dirty little media secret? Media content does not really matter. OK – it matters some. But what really matters is having a follow-up strategy in place before undertaking a media strategy. What’s even better is if the follow up strategy is built into your content. This flows from the first little W: “Who is your audience?” Before you write anything, make storyboards, mark on the white board, draw on a napkin, or scribble on a…

Why I Don't Use the Word "Christian"

In America, we live in a time when our stock as "Christians" is trading at an all-time low.  We just don't have a generally positive image in the eyes of most non-believers.  Gabe Lyons wrote an entire book about this.  Here are some of the reasons I don't use the word…

#goeverywhere - On one day, in a single moment, let's share the gospel.

What does it look like when Christians all over the world stand together in a single moment, make the most of the opportunity and share the gospel?

This is the question we (the yesHEis team) asked ourselves around mid 2013. Our work and ministry operates and revolves around the opportunity the online space give Christians for sharing the gospel. The idea of doing something all at the same time really caught our attention. So over the following months and through lost of prayer, team…

She encouraged my creative thinking.

Celebrity Sightings

I am from Maryland on the East Coast of the United States.



I moved reluctantly to California (true) in 2000.  When we could no longer deny God's calling, we moved here to serve here with The Jesus Film Project in what turned out to be an extraordinary run.



Within six months of moving here, I was a convert.  Who needs seasons?  I love the 380 days of sunshine a year, access to the beach and the mountains (ok, we're not mountain people) and the moderate climate. …
