Upkeep Screengrab

[Upkeep is currently only available for iOS.] One thing I've found to keep myself at peace and not overwhelmed, is creating to-do lists. Even daily tasks I wouldn't normally need to think about are pinned to my to-do list. I use different apps for different task sets, so sometimes I use Asana or Trello, depending on the demand and the workflow. But what about personal tasks and reminders? Like when was the last time you changed the furnace filter? Or added air to the tires? How about cleaning ... Continue Reading

I downloaded Word Lens years ago. As a Spanish teacher, I thought I'd found a perfect resource. Sadly, I couldn't find a good use for it in my class.

I never walked away from the encyclopedia bookshelf without knowing more about the world than before picking up one of those ... Continue Reading

Of course, those things are silly, but one time with my youth group, not having power was less than funny. Here is why you need to save your power when in ministry. ... Continue Reading
