I have been using Camera + for iPhone for a good couple of months now and love it. I love it because it is simple to use, quick, and easy to share photos on Facebook or Twitter. Below are some of it’s most useful features.
Here is one example of just how amazing it is. I used all of the above features to get this amazing shot.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite photography app? Which one is it?
I got the idea of making this list from Michael Hyatt, CEO of Thomas Nelson.
The idea is to list all the activities you are intentionally going to stop doing for the sake of greater productivity.
Here’s why this is important. As people succeed at work, they attract more and more assignments. It’s like they become a task magnet. “Give it to Laurie. She’ll to a great job!” The problem is that people are a finite resource. I don’t care how good you are, you only have so much energy and so much time. It’s true for me. It’s true for you.
The only way for these super-productive people to continue to grow professionally without going crazy is periodically to decide what they are not going to do. This is particularly important for people who have just been promoted to a new job. That’s when you really face the pressure to perform and it’s the most difficult to say, “no.” But you must say “no” if you are going to say “yes” to the things that really count—both in your job and in your life.
And now here is my list.
1. Do not purchase anything from Starbucks
2. Do not answer calls from unknown numbers
3. Don’t let distractions control my days
4. Do not eat as much junk food or purchase anything from a vending machine
5. Do not ignore relationships for the sake of business
If you have anything that you think I should add to this list please let me know. Also what are your ideas or goals for the next year? I would love to hear them. Keep me accountable this year, with this list. I am posting it for all to see.
I saw this video as I as checking Feedly this morning and thought I would pass it along to you. Please join in and celebrate with Northpoint (or any other church), the birth of our savior this Christmas. Attend a Christmas service, or watch one online. There are plenty to choose from. If you need help just google church online and you will be able to find many churches holding online services during the holidays. Have a very Merry Christmas. See y’all after the first of the year.
What are you and your family doing to celebrate our Savior this Christmas? How are you giving back to Him who has given you so much this year?
Pray for Hope’s mission is to educate, empower and mobilize millions to pray on behalf of the poor and the suffering.
12.12 is a day to ask God to raise up workers, full of His love and power, to serve those in poverty. Please use this video to spread the word on 12.12, the Global Day of Prayer for the poor and suffering.

How can you be praying for hope, at this very moment?
2. The Divine Commodity: Discovering a Faith Beyond Consumer Christianity by: Skye Jethani This one’s been on the list a while, and finally got a copy of it thanks to my friend, James Eaton. HT man!
Let me know if you have any suggestions of books I should read next year. What are you reading? What would you like to read that just came out? Let me know in the comments below.
“How much is much admission?” my brother, Brent jokingly commented as we were waiting for the doors to open. He had heard from people that compared the worship services at Elevation Church, in North Carolina to that of a concert.
I had the privilege of attending Elevation Church Sunday night with a few friends, and family at their newly built Matthews campus. This campus of the church was built in an old abandoned strip mall. When you think of church in a stip-mall you don’t usually think of over the top production, lighting, audio, etc. Well, Sunday at 6:00 at night Elevation Church proved that wrong.
As a guy with a passion for technology, and the like I keep a close eye on media related things and productions that churches are doing. Tonight was no different. Several rows of moving fixture lights, 2 huge screens for video playback, a backdrop also for video/lighting, Elevation had it all. I didn’t get to look at the A/V booth, but I am sure that their sound board and everything else back there was top notch. I am not saying that you need all of this to have a worship experience, but in order to reach people for Christ sometimes you have to do things a little different than other churches.
