Diet Coke and Mentos...

Okay, you've probably seen this on YouTube...
I used it as an illustration for offering yesterday. In the natural, what we are giving may not seem like much. But when we partner with God in giving, there is a supernatural response.

Candy Blast Set-Up

I'm taking a break from setting up for Candy Blast. I'm always amazed by two things: (1) How much work this thing takes and (2) how awesome it looks. For some of the set up pics, click here...

Innovate, Youth Convention...

I'm sitting here at 11pm, when I should be in bed...
I'm watching the video session from the Innovate conference. The teaching from Guy Kawasaki is awesome!! (Shane, P. Scott you guys should take a look at it...)
I'm working on my teaching notes for the class I'm teaching at our annual Youth Convention this weekend. Of course, I'm teaching on money and finances. The class is called "Show Me The Money!"
I love it when I reach the point of sleep deprivation that I start to hallucinate. Of course, it does make it easier, because that's when the little people come out... They're telling me to burn stuff...

Oh, how about another quote. This one is from Billie Jean King, a tennis during the '70's: "Be bold. If you're going to make an error, make a doozy, and don't be afraid to hit the ball."

Random Quotes... with Commentary

"Results! Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results. I know several thousand things that won't work." -Thomas Edison

Edison was speaking about his work on the perfection of the light bulb. Instead of focusing on how many times he had failed, he saw it as how many times he had eliminated what would didn't work, putting him that much closer to success. How often do we let one failure, or two or three stop us?

"If everything is under control, you're going too slow." -Mario Andretti.
I like slow, comfortable and easy going. But not much gets done that way.

Blast from the past...

An old friend of my older brother contact me through MySpace the other day, and had some pictures on his profile from Hoonah. This is my dad's old truck that us kids pretty much destroyed. Good times...

93%

According to Wikipedia, 93% of kids in America go trick or treating on Halloween. We can either hide behind the church doors, or throw those doors open for kids to come in have a great time in a safe place.

We do acts of kindness because we have message to share. Each year we take the children of the Williwaw subdivision and purchase new coats for them in the fall. This year we included at stop at Chuck E. Cheese's for lunch and some fun. We bought about 60 kids $3000 worth of jackets and $700 worth of pizza and game tokens. Way to go Wasilla Assembly for making this possible!!
