I have to agree. There really isn't any such thing as a casual Christianity. I am leaving tomorrow for our International Youth Convention of the Church of God. Our movement hosts this every two years, and this one will be in Orlando, Florida It draws teenagers from all over the country and internationally. We will have between 4,000-5,000 teenagers present. It is a great event.

Crazy Love is a great book. I have heard Francis Chan a couple of times and will be in a conference next week where he is one of the keynote speakers. I love his message. I would recommend this book to everyone. It is a fast read, but it challenges most of us caught in a casual Christianity.

More of this would certainly curb one's ego. (speaking of myself)

I am reminded from time to time by my wife that I did not fuss over my daughter enough when she gets dressed up. She knows that I think she is beautiful, but she needs the continuous affirmation that her father thinks she is princess. Sometimes I forget that she doesn't need a punch in the arm like my son, but she needs to be fussed over, and over, and over.

This is a great idea. All of us as parents should allow our children into the dialogue of how we can help those that are around us. They are more willing to get excited about the decisions that they make.

That is a powerful concept. It is just ink until the human imagination renders it otherwise. I don't have anything fancy to say, but that is worth chewing on for a while.

Transformers and G.I. Joe... Every boy had his favorite. My favorite transformer is Optimus Prime and my favorite Joe is Snake Eyes.

I was excited when I heard the movies were to be released. I enjoyed G.I. Joe with my 10 year old son, but we have not watched either of the Transformers. I was not pleased with the reviews.

I use a combination of tools. I am currently using stats from Google Analytics, Google Web Tools, and Feedburner. This covers all of the needs I have right now. I am particularly fascinated with being able to see which searches keep people on my site the longest. They are usually not the one's that I expect.

I can relate to wasting time on social media. I have found that if I want to be focused I do have to limit my time on those sights during the day when I should be working on other things. If I want to use them for fun I have to limit that to the evenings for a short period of time. If not, I can look around three hours later and haven't accomplished anything.

I realize that I cannot do everything in one day so I am trying to put everything on a chart by priority to work through. As part of this I am giving social media a small part of the marketing time and limiting myself for how long I can be on there so that I have to be intentional with what I do. Like most everyone else, I am working on this daily for best practice.

I think it is good to have them point to another review. This would help you if they think a different format would be best. However, if they are trying to control content, then I would go ahead with your original post. I think your response was a good one.
