Trickle Down Effect

Here is an example that the 30 Day Challenge can have on you and the others around you.  It's a trickle down effect. 

The idea is that listening to just Christian music for 30 days will help you feel more encouraged throughout your day, and draw you closer to God.  

When you feel that way, others around you notice the difference, and often want what you’ve got.

The woman in the picture here started listening to k-LOVE about 8 months ago, and throuthout those 8 months, she decided she wasn’t where she wanted to be in lfie, so she began a relationship with God, and accepted Jesus as her personal savior. Last night she got baptized.  

Her husband was sitting in the pews watching.  He had watched her transformation over the last 8 months, and even decided to take the 30 Day Challenge himself  Last night, after his wife was baptized, he decided he needed to get right with God too and began a relationship with Him at that service. 

You just never know what it is that encourages someone to accept Jesus.  Maybe a song, a person, or all of the above.

How has the 30 Day Challenge impact you and the others around you?

Wheels to Your Dream

Everyone wants someone to believe in them. 

I heard a story about how one Dad gave a young man "wheels to his dream", and it made me think about my own parenting and friendships differently. I don't want to make my kids or friends be who I want them to be, but help them be who God designed them to be.  People need to hear, "I believe in you", more.

The story goes like this:  This young man was working summers at one of those church family camps.  He was the guy that led worship. One of the Dads that brought his family there, was impressed.  So he sat down with the young man, and asked him what he wanted.  The young man, said he really wanted to pursue his music.

So that Dad says,, “I want to give you wheels to your dream", and cut him a check to make a demo.  That demo got him a recording contract.  The Dad is now a speaker and author.  He wrote the book, "Love Does".  His name is Bob Goff.  That young man, Christian recording artist, Brandon Heath.
