Some of my favorites

Blog carnival! Ever heard of one? I never had until we were assigned to do one for my class. What fun! In this post, I’m going to cover a handful of my favorite blogs. These are ones I visit when I need a little inspiration or a little brain break. To start off, I’ll highlight…

My vote is for Prezi

A few years ago I stumbled onto a neat presentation tool called Prezi. Here’s what they say they are, Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides.

Educatin’ myself on the gigantic world that is Facebook

We had the opportunity in my most recent class to research a social media tool. I use Facebook everyday for work and we had recently moved over to a non-profit Facebook page. I felt this was the perfect opportunity to dive in and learn all I could.

Blogging is a lot like life

Stop being average

Our church was lucky enough to connect with Compassion International and ask if our congregation could have first dibs on sponsoring the children…

There’s been some AMAZING stuff happening there…too many amazing things for one post (more to come, I promise!).

God’s hands at work

I love seeing God at work. Some times you don’t have to look very hard. I’m finding the more I let go of “me” the more I see God at work.

chaos

Chaos, a storm of questions, a barrage of people, a million handouts, more paperwork on the horizon. I felt like I had been put through the ringer after two hours. And guess what? I wasn’t even the one in the middle of the chaos. I was on the periphery as a support person for my…
