Overcoming The Overwhelming Tendency to Panic

Donald Miller

Here’s a tidbit about writing and the overwhelming temptation to panic. My guess is it applies nearly as strongly to painting and public speaking and for that matter child rearing, plumbing and lawyering. Hope it helps.

How Running A Business is Like The Acts Church

Donald Miller

Collins answered confidently: clarity. He said […]

What I Learned About Limitations From My Friend in a Wheelchair

Tim Schurrer

The truth is we all have limitations in life. For some of us, these are physical limitations. Maybe an injury, for example, or a birth defect. For others, limitations are more emotional, spiritual or mental. Some limitations are self-imposed and some of them are put on us by something outside of us. Either way, We […]
