My son is studying about Hellen Keller this week.
She says another soul touched the darkness of her mind.
You don’t have to have a physical impediment to relate to that.
Listen below as we talk about the crusade against darkness.
Pastor Mike is preaching this Sabbath from Exodus 36:1-7 and the title of the message is “What could God accomplish through us if every member were debt free?” So I began to imagine. To owe no one, avoid no one, fear no one, what a feeling! In this episode, I explore the concept of a phrase I call “debt to self.” It is a condition that makes debt collectors blush and can only be remedied in Christ, “death to self.”
I love cutting edge apps and innovative software. Right now I am memorizing Ephesians 3:16 through the best app I’ve seen within this category. It’s called Verses. For the class I teach at Midland I enjoy using classtools.net, Kahoots, Prezi’s, Pollseverywhere, Expalineverything. For podcasting I joined the beta tester group for a new software called Descript. You record your audio and it transcribes automatically and associates the text with the audio clip. That means that if I delete a word in the document, it deletes the audio in the clip. I find myself giving credence to upcoming entrepreneurial ingenuity by subscribing to 7 day trials and cancelling before I get charged. In this story I am found standing near the bananas at Walmart when something goes wrong and I ended up accidentally making a financial blunder that would have costed me dinner that night. Here is the rest of the story.
What I learned was that if I did not have a back up plan, I would have had to leave my grocery cart behind. I also learned that small decisions can have large implications. I am excited for the journey to financial peace so that my wife and I can continue to learn pay off debt, budget, save money, and give generously.
