I decided to start blogging after sitting through a frustrating board meeting.

After hours of listening to the founding member of a new ministry share ideas that seemed incomprehensibly irrelevant, it ignited a fire inside me. I realized that if a leader doesn’t care to understand social networking, read books on the topic they speak about or research the market on the subject for which they are writing a book, frankly, they aren’t someone I want to follow.

I resigned from the board.

Instead of trying to convince someone to be culturally relevant, I took my own advice and stuck my toes in the uncharted waters of blogging. Unexpectedly, that board meeting helped me to discern how to harness God given gifts and spurred me into a wonderful community on the internet, complimenting my job as a feature writer.

I deeply regret . . . .
