Please Don’t Stop The Reading!

Continued Learning, Part 1

Reading wasn’t always my favourite thing to do.  In fact, throughout high-school, I believe I mastered the art of writing a paper without reading the book.  I look back, however, and think of how better my papers would have been if I started reading sooner.  Some of it had to do with the topics, and I certainly didn’t like fiction. But as I’ve entered into the workplace, future education, and now into ministry, I’ve realized reading keeps your mind sharp. 

This is a 3 part series about how we can continue to learn beyond the traditional classroom setting.

Please Don't Stop The Reading

In Newfoundland and Labrador (where I live), we have an increasing excuse to decrease our reading habits.  Unfortunately, the province added a tax to books.  But just because we’re the only province in Canada to tax books, doesn’t mean we have to be the only province who stops reading. I’d like to offer five cost-effective ways we can make this happen:

Moleskine Versus iPad

Why I Still Use Pen and Paper

I was so excited to get an iPad.  “No more pen and paper,” I thought.  After I got my first touchscreen stylist and a decent note taking app, I was ready to go!

Simply Living Like a Child

3 Things My Daughter Has Taught Me

Sharing our faith is easy, right? God has transformed my life and I should want to share that with so many people! So, why is it so difficult? The truth is, we make sharing our faith so overwhelming that we just don’t do it (here are some reasons why). It doesn’t have to be so complicated though! If we simply shared our faith ‘like’ a child, I think we would be much more excited to do so.

Simply Living Like a Child

I read a blog post from a friend of mine recently (Evangelism in 3 Easy Steps) and I thought about how simple evangelism really is. It’s almost humorous. God simply wants us to be who we are and live out that faith. I don’t always do well in that category, but I know who does — my daughter.

Rae is three. She can be quite the handful at times, but it’s amazing what she learns and understands about God. Yes, sometimes it means she walks around the house wearing her blanket over her head and calling herself Jesus. But many other times she simply has child-like faith.

Here’s what I mean…
