Help Me Choose A New Cover For My Book

My publisher is reworking the exterior cover design and interior format of my book, REVEALED: God's Will for Your Life. REVEALED (Cover Options) Above is a PDF link for 6 cover designs to choose from.

If you would, in the comments section below, tell me which of the 6 designs you like the most and why. Also, if you like one design for ... More+

Leap Year: An Infographic To Explain What It Is All About

Today is February 29th and when I looked at the calendar on my iPhone, I did a double-take.  February 29th?  Oh, yeah. Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few days, you're no doubt aware that today is an "extra day" in February to account for keeping our calendars in sync with time, the seasons, etc.  Without this extra day, we get out of sync, which I suppose is not a good thing. But what in the world is Leap Year all about?  Here's an interesting infographic to help you ... More+

Church Analytics: Information Technology for Christian Ministry

I'm taking a step back for just a moment so that I can get all technical on you.  Trust me, it won't hurt (much)---for very long, that is. I recently got in touch with the owner of a great company called Church Analytics.  I'm testing out his company's product here on my blog.  I believe the results will be quite interesting, indeed.  (At least for me.  LOL) Church Analytics is a computer program that tracks data on websites so that the owners/administrators of those sites can see if anyone ...

Approved As A Contributing Writer For Pastors.com (Rick Warren)

Are you familiar with Rick Warren and his ministry?  Pastor Rick leads a very large church called Saddleback Church, located primarily in southern California, but also with other campuses and church plants scattered around the world. Rick has been used by God in amazing and diverse ways, and I personally have benefited from his pastoral ministry and his books.  His ministry has been both edifying and controversial (not intentionally by him, I should add) among many of those who might call ...

What Is “Cyber Monday” All About Anyway? [Infographic]

Did you know that there was roughly $165.4 billion dollars spent in 2010 on e-commerce sales?  That equates to about $453,000,000 per day in online purchases! When I left the house this morning, my wife was online scooping up a few sweet deals from Cyber Monday's mania.  (She's getting to be so good at frugality!) Actually, she was also on the telephone talking to someone from customer service, just to make sure she was purchasing what she truly wanted. Are you buying anything online today or ... More+

A Few Things You Need To Know About Thanksgiving Day

Below is a very interesting infographic about the celebration of Thanksgiving Day. I didn't know some of this information, but it is interesting that the Detroit Lions (a seriously troubled NFL football team without much to look forward to) needed a gimmick to get people to watch them (some things never change). And after watching them lose badly to the Green Bay Packers...again...on this Thanksgiving Day, maybe it's time to pull another gimmick out of the hat. (Ha!) Enjoy! Pardon this ... More+
