Style Saturday: T + Bling!

 Don't forget your sparkle. (Yep, you can also read that as a metaphor).

August in Texas. Y'all, it's hot! No one wants to dress up.

We are staying cool and comfy in our t-shirts, but that doesn't mean we have to be lazy about it. How do you show respect for your day and still sport your t-shirt? Put on your best lipstick and add bling!

Sparkles dress up a t-shirt, but I'm not saying that I get out my bedazzler-- instead, I incorporate them in my jewelry, nails, shoes, and even a hat.

I love incorporating crowns into my accessories because it reminds me of my eternal crown. Jesus wore a crown of thorns so I could wear a crown of gold!
"Don't forget to wear your tiara today!" "Put off the old self, put on the new self." "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" 2 Corinthians 5:17

My pal Sheniqua beats the heat but doesn't neglect her style! Notice her sparkly accessories on hand and foot:

The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps. Proverbs 16:9
Sheniqua does hands right! Would one dare say she is lazy in a t-shirt and shorts? No way!
"This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!" Psalm 188:24

An Avenue of Opportunity

This summer marks our 12th year of raising support. In other words, we raise all the money that funds our ministry, our income, our health benefits, our social security taxes; i.e. everything. I was casually chatting with a friend over lunch yesterday (casually because we were sitting on damp beach blankets while our kids picnicked in swimsuits in the backyard) about how God has changed my view of this task of support-raising over the years.
When we began fresh out of college, the idea of support-raising seemed daunting, but faith-stretching. And I worried what people would think of us. Would they think we are beggars?

We focused on "God, will you meet our needs?"
"Yes, I will; in my time," answered the Almighty.

He slowly led us to compassionate individuals, many of whom we had never met, and we had the privilege of experiencing His provision through the compassion of His people.

The abundance of His provision has ebbed and flowed over the years--needs always met, …

Top 10 Reasons Why People Don't Read the Bible

I've spent 15+ years in ministry, and I've noticed a problem:
people who say they believe the Bible haven't actually read it, and people who don't believe the Bible don't want to read it. My response to both groups is this: YOU ARE MISSING OUT! Why? Because the Bible is the best proven source for life-changing joy and peace. And since it's misquoted and misrepresented all the time, you need to actually read it yourself in order to know if you do/don't agree with it or do/don't want to read it.

When I mention this, it usually surfaces at least one of these 10 barriers that prevent folks from completing it. Do you relate to any of these?

10 Reasons Most People Don't Read the Bible, Refuted 1. I'm not religious. The Bible is the best-selling book of all time. Jesus has been hailed by secular sources as the most influential person to ever walk on the earth. Most people, even those who don't worship God, agree that Jesus was a good person with a …

Free Lock Screens to Renew Your Mind and Purpose

5 years ago I created the acronym WHY as a way of pausing before using my smartphone. I've shared with audiences both live and digital how important it is to be intentional with technology.

Here are 5 free lock screens from my most recent student conference--Big Break.
