Stay inspired with Music that Blesses Others

Music that Blesses Others... 

You'll notice a button on the home page, and you'll be seeing Blog posts like this one each month, that highlight a very special feature for you called, Music that Blesses Others. That's because music is a huge part of staying inspired to Bless God and others! 

If that sounds like a stretch then just think about the Psalms. Think too about how worship music can stur your heart. Can warm your heart. Which is why I encourage you to get "warmed up" each month as Shon Stewart picks (and sometimes performs himself) a key song that goes with our monthly Blessing Themes. 

What's a Blessing Theme? Each month, we highlight a specific way you can choose to give and live the Blessing. For example, even though we're already into March, the Blessing Theme for February was... understandably... Blessing your spouse! Of course, that's something that's great to do all year. February has lots of reminders to do so! 

If you go to right now, you'll find February's song. It's actually written by Shon's mother, Jorja, and sung by a true Blessing Champion - Shon Stewart. 

You'll love this song that encourages us to value and honor our spouses "differences." And if you'll spend some time on the site, and listen to some of the other songs he's done (as well as others), you'll fall in love with Shon's heart and love for Jesus, the Blessing, and picking great songs for you and I to use to stay inspired.

So plan on being reminded here in a blog regularly to take a look at Music that Blesses Others. For example, Shon just did an interview - and actually sang a song with Joni Erickson Tada! The radio interview airs in May - and you can bet that "duet" is going to be our May song to inspire and soften your heart to give and live the Blessing!

As you know, Web 2.0 is all about the conversation. But without a few simple ground rules, that conversation can turn into a shouting match that discourages others from entering into the fray.

So here is my comments policy. By posting on my blog, you agree to the following:

  1. You may comment without registering. You can log-in via IntenseDebate, OpenID, Twitter, Facebook—or not at all. It’s up to you.
  2. You may post anonymously. I don’t recommend this, but you may do so if you wish. I may change this rule if it is abused.
  3. You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are you are not alone. Others are likely thinking similarly. Therefore, I would rather receive your comments on my blog than via email. It is a better use of my time to address everyone at once rather than answer several similar emails.
  4. You may disagree with me. I welcome debate. However, I ask that if you disagree with me—or anyone else, for that matter—do so in a way that is respectful. In my opinion, there is way too much shouting in the public square to tolerate it here.
  5. I reserve the right to delete your comments. This is my blog. I don’t have an obligation to publish your comments. The First Amendment gives you the right to express your opinions on your blog not mine. Specifically, I will delete your comments if you post something that is, in my sole opinion, (a) snarky; (b) off-topic; (c) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate my sense of decorum and civility or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (d) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog post.
  6. You retain ownership of your comments. I do not own them and I expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on my site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve me from any and all liability that may result from those postings.
  7. You grant me a license to post your comments.This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant me the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.
In short, my goal is to host interesting conversations with caring, honest, and respectful people. I believe this simple comments policy will facilitate this.
