So… Last Week?
We had great content, great traffic and a HUGE technical malfunction that left a lot of you hanging – THANK YOU, for your patience!
This week, if the Lord wills, we’d like to give you another opportunity to answer the question “How can I make every day count?”

Martin Luther is often quoted:
“there are only two days on my calendar: today and that day [we come before Christ].”
Here’s a quick note on two special needs for Seasons of Life that are pressing and promising:
Bring That Day to the Kineo Leader’s Conference:
This is a conference for church leaders where I will have opportunity to bring That Day directly to our target market – pastors who want to see their people more engaged in living everyday with eternity in mind.
They represent churches from 7 states including IN, LA, VA, and GA. This could be very big for the kingdom and for Seasons of Life. Funding this will allow me the bandwidth to bring my A game to pastors really dedicated to kingdom building. In order to provide this special P/R performance for them at no additional burden to their respective churches, we’re inviting you, our key supporters to contribute to bringing That Day to their day.
Could we do it for free as a “marketing write off”? Sure, under normal circumstances, but right now it’s just not financially feasible to do much pro bono work until things really stabilize later in the quarter. So, we’re praying a few people might band together to help “prime the pump” with us. Would you be one of them?
GTD Training, Atlanta
I’ve been practicing a lot of David Allen’s “Getting Things Done” (GTD) methodology for a little over 10 years now and teaching key pieces of it for a few years through Clean Slate.
GTD is the gold standard for personal productivity training and in 2017 will be in cities including Mumbai, Edinborough, Dublin, Tokyo, and… Atlanta. They will sell out and I only get one chance to get their certification before they’re off to another city.
Their blessing (and branding) could open a ton of new doors for us with our Clean Slate workshop, not only in churches, but also in businesses. Your help in getting me there in part or in full would be greatly appreciated.
The training is $600 and will (always does) sell out.
I’d love for you to pray about helping us with these two specific opportunities as urgent and important needs. To give, use our online portal here
That Day brought the awe of heaven and the love of God to hundreds last month!
We’re on a Mission!
Last year, we had a vision to help 10,000 people live every day with eternity in mind. In January, we were able to reach close to 600 of them with two That Day performances!
Clearly, God is using this story to change the hearts and minds of a whole lot of people. We’ve been invited to present it to a pastor’s conference next month. These are pastors from all over the US trying to reach unchurched people in a country where more and more people are not professing Christians: America. We can help. But, we need your help.
Mission Driven? Mission Given.
We need to cover some costs without raising the burden on these pastors and their churches. It will take about $750 to bring That Day to this conference and we don’t want mission driven givers to miss out on an opportunity to give where it counts.
If we can raise this support before February 7th, we’ll have a shot at bringing That Day to these pastors and eventually, hundreds in their churches and communities, who will impact thousands around them. To support this effort, give to the That Day fund here.
What We’re Seeing That Day Do:
The feedback we got from the performances was life changing. MANY were moved:
- to laughter, tears, or both
- some to action
- and a few… to the altar.
Among the smiling and teary testimonials:
“…powerful and sobering. It gave me a new perspective & it challenged me.” Y.M., Dawsonville, GA
“Engaging, funny and very touching. I was in tears often, in good and bad ways.” L.F., Alpharetta
Three Things Jesus Will Say:
At the end of this life, we will come before Jesus and hear one of three things:
- “Away from me, I never knew you.”
- “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
We want to move some of the
- “Away from me”s to “welcome”
- “Welcome”s to “Well done!” and
- “Well done”s to maximum rewards and glory for Christ.
Looking with excitement toward that day of HIS glorious appearing!!!

What’s Your Better?
At the end of 2016 nearly 100% of Americans wanted 2017 to be better. But, which better?
The prayer requests I got sounded like “clarity & direction”, “make the right decisions at work”, “be more fully present in key relationships” (wife or significant other, kids, extended family), “stay in the word”, “stop playing catch up at work and actually get ahead”. What were yours? Crushing it yet? Didn’t make any? Read on…
This year, about 41% of Americans made New Year’s resolutions. Almost 45% of those people will make it 6 months or more on those resolutions. In other words, while a lot of people are interested in change, not everyone is committed to lasting change in their lives. Even fewer actually achieve it.
Two Kinds of People – Which Are You?
Some of you are really active people – you do a lot of stuff. Others are highly productive people – you get a lot of stuff done. But, I firmly assert that God doesn’t want either. I believe God doesn’t want us to settle for merely doing more stuff. He calls us to something better: getting the right stuff done in His power and His timing with right motives. How about you? Comment below.
You can be in one place alone: on track or off track. If you’re on track, good for you. Just know you have an enemy who wants you off track and will do all in his power to get you there. The great news is, God has an order and a power (grace) designed to get you back on track every time you’re off. The most productive people have plans in place designed to help them get back on track as quickly and often as possible. Are you one of them?
This week, I’m offering a free webinar under the Clean Slate banner: “Re:gaining Productivity”. So, whether you’ve lost momentum or just want help keeping it, I’m here to partner with you in the process with biblical solutions to real world problems.
Is that worth 45 minutes of your time? What I’m covering hasn’t just changed my life, it’s helping people, churches and businesses keep the main thing the main thing. If that’s important to you, click here and register for Thursday’s webinar.
