What I’m Loving This Week: More Power Thoughts

Here are some links that I liked this week (plus stay tuned for a free download at the end of this post!):

1) Catalyst East 2010 Conference: Lessons, Observations, and Highlights by Samantha Johnson – I really wanted to be at the Catalyst conference at Atlanta last week, but I’m happy that my friends Sam and Rob were there to experience it. Sam did a great job of sharing some of the highlights and notable quotes from the sessions, so I loved reading her update.

2) The Purpose of a Partner by Dan Cathy “The truth is that the best projects, the biggest companies and the greatest accomplishments are not born out of miraculous efforts of one, but out of partnerships.” –good reminder!

3) A Minute of Praise by Holly Furtick “We all respond better to praise over correction.”--so true, and yet we often forget this.

4) Architects as a Listening Community by Mel McGowan @ Visioneering Studios – From the first moment that I stepped into the Mariners Church campus in Irvine, California, I was captivated by its architecture and planning. It was during a Mariners campus tour that I first met Mel McGowan and learned about Visioneering Studios. I like how they approach architecture and design–how there’s so much thought and heart put into it. While I am not an architect, reading this post reminded me of how I want to work as a writer.

5) Lastly, I really love this quote from Bishop T.D. Jakes. I loved it so much that I made a desktop wallpaper out of it, and I thought I’d share it with you today. To download the large version (1280 x 800), just click on the photo below, then right click on it to save it to your computer.

What captured your heart this week? Do share!

What I’m Loving This Week (I can’t believe it’s August already!)

Here are some blog posts that I loved this week that I’d like to share with you:

1) Let your love grow” by Holly Furtick – As a single woman, I’ve learned to appreciate every day that God keeps me single, because I know it’s another day that God uses to work on my character and to change my wrong mindsets about love. That’s why I like (and need) to read stuff like this.

2) Honor 101” by Steven Furtick – This one is by Holly Furtick’s husband, Steven Furtick, who’s also a pastor and author (I loved his first book, Sun Stand Still, which just came out recently, so watch out for it!). This post really resonated with me because I know that God has been causing me to remember the word HONOR (the verb, not the noun) this month. I know it is something that I don’t do enough for the people God has placed in my life…but I really should.

3) The Best Leadership Advice a guest post by Lindsey Nobles over at The Catalyst Blog – Lindsey works for leadership guru Michael Hyatt, CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers. I really look up to both of them, and I can only imagine how awesome it is to work in that company and learn from leaders like Hyatt on a daily basis. Lindsey gave me a peek into that life as she shared a precious and valuable insight that she learned from her leader. It’s another piece that really hit home for me.

4) Plans another guest post by Lindsey Nobles over at The Stubborn Servant – Lindsey just knows how to put into words exactly what I feel and what I need to hear (or read, for that matter). This one is for everyone who gets frustrated when their plans don’t work out.

5) Mila’s Daydreams – I love this creative collection of baby photos. So adorable.

Well, that’s it for now folks! Have a wonderful day! :)
