5 Reasons to Attend The Storyline Conference

Donald Miller

During the conference, I’ll be lecturing on all the major points of the Storyline process, and we’ll provide no shortage of examples and interviews with people who are living amazing stories. Very few people leave Storyline the way they came in. Paradigm shifts abound, but perhaps the biggest one is that life was a gift rather than…

How Our Obsession With Success May Be Hurting Our Faith

Donald Miller

It’s a broad topic that deserves a book, of course, but just asking the question has value.

How is our understanding of Christianity influenced by our culture?

I’ll choose only one area to start, and…

A Control Freak’s Guide to Respecting The Mystery of The Creative Process

Donald Miller

Everybody knows dating is like a dance. You can only control your part but you hope, as the relationship progresses, you’re compatible. You hope you don’t step on each others feet.

How could you not delight in that picture? And earlier yesterday morning, I read a quote from John Sowers’ book Fatherless Generation about how quickly our girls wilt when their fathers leave, how they long to know they are […]

Why Mitt Romney Lost The Election And Why Hillary Might Lose, Too

Donald Miller

And I’m not talking about a short Bible study of age-related peers. I’m talking about hard-core community. People who have […]
