‘Rookie Smarts’ by Liz Wiseman [Saturday Morning Review]

Rookie Smarts - Saturday Morning Review

This book pretty much confirmed what I had experienced myself years ago. I started working in a large hospital many years ago and had five different positions in 8 years, each successful if I say so myself. The amazing thing was that I did not have a background in health care, nor in management, nor in HRM. Yet I performed well in each of these disciplines. The reason? Rookie Smarts. ...

Finding Faith in the Big Blue Box GIVEAWAY!

Big Blue Box Giveaway

I've been a fan of science fiction since I was a kid, and few modern sci-fi stories capture the child's imagination while fulfilling the adult's desire for a gripping story like the show Doctor Who. It's one of those rare bits of modern entertainment that ticks all of the boxes. It's a fairy tale, an adventure, a romance—I close my eyes during those parts—a comedy, and a grand drama. In simpler terms, it's a story, and like all stories, there is a piece, a hint, a molecule, of the story hidden ... Continue Reading

‘Twitter is Not a Strategy’ by Tom Doctoroff [Saturday Morning Review]

Saturday Morning Review - Twitter is not a strategy

Don't let the title and the blue Twitter bird on the cover of this book deceive you (as it did me) into thinking this book is about social media, or brand marketing through social media. It's not. That doesn't mean it's not interesting, but the title did make me expect something else. Twitter is Not a Strategy is about brand marketing: positioning your product, service, or company in the market as to successfully distinguish yourself from your competitors. It's certainly a much discussed ... Continue Reading

‘An Advent Journey Of Hope’ by Louie Giglio [Saturday Morning Review]

Saturday Morning Review - Embark on an Advent journey

My admiration for Pastor Louie Giglio is deeply rooted in his involvement with the musical arm of his ministry, and of course the Word, which he proclaims to the world. Every year thousands of young people gather to celebrate Jesus at the Passion Conference, which I talked about HERE. Besides being the visionary architect and director of the Passion Movement, Louie Giglio is also the author of “The Air I Breathe” and “I Am Not But I Know I AM.” Louie is widely known for the Passion Talk Series ...

Sharing God’s Story with Disney’s Frozen

Frozen-BG

Disney’s Frozen dominated pop culture in 2014. From the movie to the songs (“Let it go. Let it go!”) to the toys to the Halloween costumes, Disney’s Frozen refused to be ignored. And I am glad that it did. Disney’s Frozen is way more than just another Disney princess movie - it beautifully illustrates God’s story. ... Continue Reading

The Wingfeather Saga is amazing.

Finding Faith Inside the Big Blue Box: A Whovian’s 30 Day Devotional

Doctor-Who-Cover-Wide

I have loved science fiction for as long as I can remember. It’s always been my genre of choice. Whether it was the Back to the Future trilogy, Quantum Leap, of the My Teacher is an Alien books by Bruce Coville—I have been deep into the world of mystery and wonder of science fiction for a long time. But in all of my reading and watching, I was never taken as deep into another world as I was when I found Doctor Who. Unlike so many shows, Doctor Who takes the audience far beyond what might be ...
