Grey Scale Makes It Pop

I love this little background for more than just the image. It's grey scale with the colors of the icons actually make me focus more on my work than most wallpapers I have had so far.

Plus it's minimalism, so obviously I had to get it.

Minecraft Theology on +Churchmag

I posted the teaser image for this two weeks ago and a couple of the videos have gone live since then so I wanted to show them off. This is my new adventure with Churchmag, to try to do digital community in a unique way that I have yet to see any other church show online (not that they don't exist, I just haven't seen them).

Churchmag actually purchased a Minecraft server and there are currently 7 of us on there now playing. At this point in time, two different opportunities for series are going to be coming to the Churchmag site: Minecraft Theology and Let's Plays.

The latter is just like any other let's plays out there. We'll talk about Minecraft, show off how we built things, and do some fun exploring and redstoning. The former though will be a little different. We will be combining the ideas of vlogging with Minecraft with a platform to talk about anything theological in nature. Some of the future episodes coming up include gaming as Christians, trying to do community through gaming, struggling with depression, and even some hot topics ideas.

I'm excited for the idea of doing this and I'd love to hear your feedback. If the video ideas are a flop, I will still have a ton of fun playing on the server, so it's a win either way.

Easter Sunday

Easter was a bit unique for us this year. My son finally turned 8 weeks old and flue season is not at its peak any more, we attended church as a family for the first time in 2 months.

The service was good.

The company was great.

And the day was actually very special.

That's my Easter story, what's yours?

This wallpaper is all about the java. I need to get stuff done and I hoped the caffeine would burn though the picture for me. It didnt.

New Series Coming to +ChurchMag

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited about this series coming. Lots of blogging requires work and while the outcome is enjoyable, the process sometimes isn't. I do not anticipate that being a problem with these blog articles. And it should be noted that +Eric Dye has been active already.

One of the big things we want to do with this is create a community, so I want to know: do you like Minecraft? If given an opportunity, would you join the community? Look for the video to come soon.

This just went live and I cannot wait to watch it. I don't go to the movie theaters more than twice a year and this is on my list to watch.

My youngest is a little over a week from being 2 months old and he is certainly growing into his own. He has us all tied around his little finger.

By The Numbers

My new eBook has been released with +ChurchMag and this is not just some quick opinion piece. I put over 50 hours into this thing as a research project to see what churches are doing online. I'd love for you to take a look and if you have a blog of your own, I have maybe one more promotional code to give a way for a review.

You can get your free copy of it here:
https://churchmagpress.com/by-the-numbers/


I'm excited about this because it is NOT opinion based, but a study of what American churches are actually doing. If you have a social media and web platform for your church or are thinking of starting one, this eBook is for you.

Let me know if you are interested.

There were literally tears in my eyes and I was laughing out loud at this. A good Friday morning giggle I figure I should pass on to you.

Where Have I Been?

You can always tell when life is happening in high gear for me because my Google+ activity goes down. It's not because it's not a priority, but because I want my content to be full and worth it. The only short posts I do on here are reshares of +ChurchMag I am proud of or my wallpaper posts.

So what has been going on in my life that I have been distracted?

I'm A Father Again
Not much to say on this except that the second time around is easier because I actually know what I'm doing. My wife has been a godsend by taking nights and while I am at work.

Building A Deck
I'm 95% done with remodeling our back deck. After lots of cash, smashed thumbs from hammers, and sore limbs, it is nearly done. Now to get this hot tub working and garden started!

I Have An eBook Coming
I have been doing the beginning works of a longitudinal study for +ChurchMag on digital ministries of the largest American churches and the results of the findings get released this month in an eBook called By The Numbers. I'm excited for its release as I have poured more than 70 hours into it.

Catching Up On Work
Taking two weeks off is tough and I don't have the advantage of "DELETE ALL" to emails with my counseling practice. Which means I have been playing a lot of catch up.

So I have been going 100mph, but as the image below shows, I think it is time to stop this weekend and simply rest.

Story
Tagline
Christian, Husband, Father, Professional Counselor, Blogger, and Social Media Realist
Introduction
My name is Jeremy and I am a Christian, husband, father, blogger, writer, and social media realist.

Christian
I have been serving in ministry since 2003 with Youth for Christ and have loved every minute of it. I love talking faith, though I find myself debating less about the opinions of faith in favor of looking at the "why questions" and practical ways of putting faith into our lives.

Husband
One big takeaway in this life is my family. They are of utmost concern to me, beyond any personal accomplishments or career dreams. I love my wife, Ashley, and our beautiful son, Grant.

Blogger
I'm an experimenter when it comes to blogging. I have zero aspirations of becoming a career blogger, even those I find myself in that role now. Instead, I'd rather take some of the opinions of blogging out there and put them to the test and then share my results to help others do blogging better.

Writer
Coming from someone whose worst subject in high school was English, this is a big step for me. I currently have more than ten eBooks written or in production on a variety of topics including, Social Media for the ChurchCourageous Faith: 24 Day Devotional For Youth Workers, and Effective Blogging: 50 Tips To A Successful Blog.

Social Media Realist
I see social media not as Google+ is better or Facebook is a must, but that we can use these networks wisely and effectively. If you hate Facebook because it is not Google+, Twitter because there are too many people posting too often, or Pinterest because it is for women, avoid sharing your opinion with me because I will think less of you.
