Oh man! It’s a new year! What??? How did we get seventeen years into the 21st century!

So here’s some recommendations to start your year with a bang:

Audiobooks:

You are a Badass – Sincero

Jen Sincero is a hilarious cheerleader/coach! You need this book if you feel like your life is stuck in the mud. The audiobook is read by the author and she will make you laugh out loud at yourself and others. She will also give you a kick in the pants to get your life back on track.

My Year of Yes – Rhimes

Rhimes is the writer of several well-known television shows including Grey’s Anatomy. The audiobook is also read by the author. She will take you on a wild ride of her own journey of learning to say Yes to life. You will be inspired to say Yes to your own life as well.

Podcasts:

The Deconstructionists Podcast

These two guys are fun and witty. They take apart and reconstruct faith issues. Each week they interview people who are reforming the faith and making us think deeper. Hope you check it out.

App:

Overdrive – a friend recommended this app to me recently. It works in conjunction with your local library. You are able to download audiobooks and ebooks to your phone. The app if free. You only need a library card and you can check out and return books via the app.

Reading:

Generation Z – White

I am only a few chapters into this book, but it is an eye-opening read. The author looks at Generation X, Y, and Z comparing them to the Boomer generation. X,Y,Z are shaped by technology in such a way that Boomers have difficulty understanding them. But Generation Z is considered to be the last of what we will be able to identify as a “generation”. Those born after Gen Z will see technology change so rapidly that there will cease to be “generations”. Instead, they will be marked by weeks and months.

Quote I’m pondering:

Our culture keeps women busy looking in the mirror so we never look outward to change the world. – Glennon Doyle Melton

Current Sermon Series:

Exodus: You are Here

Our new series begins on January 8th and we will focus on the Book of Exodus. The second book of the Bible covers only a twelve month period but shapes the rest of Jewish and Christian history. Follow us here.
