Hello and Goodbye

It is with great sorrow that I say goodbye to blogger and move forward to wordpress. Why? Wordpress simply offers more user features...the new blogger is improved but not nearly enough. I am sad because Blogger is where I "cut my teeth" on blogging. But it is time for something better, loyalty is not enough when its free and their product offers more. I am not deleting this blog because it is home to the World's Largest IHOP-KC Blogroll. My new site won't have a full list yet.

I may occassional post here but hope that all of you will visit my new blog and Subscribe to the RSS Feed. If I am listed on your blogroll please update the link.

I Hear The Sounds of Reward In Heaven

My friend Josh Olsen shared this with me and I had to visit the blog and link to it. Lois was ordinary...just like Jesus...there was nothing about her ministry that the religioneers would love it. God loves to use the ordinary. You and I have great odds of being used by HIM. Love your ordinariness because HE loves it. Do you have a basement? A porch? A back yard BBQ? Read on!


There was a high magnitude quake in the evangelistic spiritual realm over Chicago today. At its epicenter was the passing away of one of the finest evangelists I have ever known.

I first heard the name of Lois Peterson disdainfully–almost as if the speaker was spitting. She was not popular among the old guard at my church....

Yet it was the power of God. I would estimate that thousands of seekers found what they sought in that basement. From the ranks of druggies and addicts sprang forth pastors and missionaries and church leaders. A race of grace-oriented newbies populated churches and filled Sunday school classes throughout the land. The number of pastors who first met Jesus in Lois’ class has to be in the dozens.

After Lois finished teaching, it was time to “move in.” That meant that us veterans would strike up a conversation with strangers at our table, and–sipping coffee, and breathing their tar and nicotine–gently open a door to Jesus. Okay, sometimes not so gently. We did what we had to do: ardent for Jesus, and I must confess, for the smile and approval of Lois.

There was not a church in town that didn’t have some of Lois’ converts helping out in ministry. How the devil hated her. Week after week, somebody “got saved”–a phrase I still use and always will, even though our postmodern friends don’t like it. I want people to get saved, and if your ministry doesn’t get people saved, it isn’t Christian.

Read it all here.

Thought's From Tony Morgan...I Had To Post It!

I had a great conversation with some friends a few days ago. One of the women was talking about her old job. She left that position to pursue her dream. I don't exactly remember what she used to do, but they replaced her old position with a vending machine. I'm glad she left her job. She was designed for so much more.

How are you investing your life?

Is it what you were designed to do?

Are you fulfilled?

Do you enjoy the people around you?

Do they help bring the best out of you?

Do you bring the best out of them?

Do you have enough financial resources to contribute to God's work and support your family?

What lasting impact are you making?

Life is short. Just wanted to make sure you realized that sometimes you have to make the move. Sometimes God doesn't fully reveal his will until you take the first step (Joshua 3:14-17).

Live boldly.

Book Description
What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering the question. Depending on when you ask this
controversial Princeton University guest lecturer, he might answer:

“I race motorcycles in Europe.”
“I ski in the Andes.”
“I scuba dive in Panama.”
“I dance tango in Buenos Aires.”

He has spent more than five years learning the secrets of the New Rich, a fast-growing subculture who has abandoned the “deferred-life plan” and instead mastered the new currencies—time and mobility—to create luxury lifestyles in the here and now.

Whether you are an overworked employee or an entrepreneur trapped in your own business, this book is the compass for a new and revolutionary world. Join Tim Ferriss as he teaches you:

• How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want
• How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs
• How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist
• How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and freuent "mini-retirements"
• What the crucial difference is between absolute and relative income
• How to train your boss to value performance over presence, or kill your job (or company) if it’s beyond repair
• What automated cash-flow “muses” are and how to create one in 2 to 4 weeks
• How to cultivate selective ignorance—and create time—with a low-information diet
• What the management secrets of Remote Control CEOs are
• How to get free housing worldwide and airfare at 50–80% off
