I had the opportunity to partner with echurch giving and participate in an book project with over 25 other Christian innovators.
The final product is ready and here it is!
Prolific (adj.): producing much fruit, producing many works, high-scoring, plentiful, abundant, creative, productive, inventive.
All the Things we Don’t Have – New Year’s Resolutions are typically the time of year to reflect on the things we don’t have or don’t do. Don’t eat out so much. Do more exercise. Don’t be so negative and depressed, etc. More often than not, these resolutions are woven together with complicated emotions such as guilt, regret, and shame. The result is that, through great self-control, we keep our new promises for 30 days or so, and then go back to our old routines, still carrying along our companions of guilt, shame, and the like.
It was Always Meant to Be Excess – We’re turning the tables for 2015, choosing to emphasize our excess rather than our lack. The best single word we found to describe this perspective is prolific. It’s a word that contains elements of abundance, creativity, productivity, plenty, and just general excess.
Isn’t Excess a Dirty Word? – Excess can be a strange word to accept, as it has been used in a derogatory manner, especially as it relates to our American way of life. However, we’re reclaiming the definition. Our cups were meant to run over, not with material goods necessarily, but with action-values such as generosity, gratitude, compassion, and celebration. Powerful words that prompt a way of life, prompt community engagement, and shift our perspective to our blessings rather than our lack.
It’s Time to Do Success Different! – We gave the above text as a writing prompt to over 25 of our favorite Christian innovators, writers, thinkers, and doers. What you’re about to read are their unfiltered responses. Be inspired!
Wait, Isn’t That a Grammar Mistake? – It’s true, grammatically the sentence should read, “Do Success Differently,” but we were trying to make a subtle and artistic point that we mean business. We’re serious about doing things differently, so much so that we’re willing to break grammar rules to do it.

Each of us were to keep our article between 300 and 500 words, and well if you read my blog you realize that is very difficult for me. Therefore I wrote the article and handed it over with free reign to edit as needed, lol :-).
