Two Week Countdown to our New Look!

Same Calling - Just a New Name and Revamped Site!

No, I’m not changing my name! And we’re not changing our mission. We still believe that every child, in every home and church, deserves someone who’s crazy about them! And we believe that the biblical Blessing is an absolutely incredible, life-changing way for a mom or a dad, for a grandparent, roommate, friend or church to do just that. To share God's love and their love in a way that can be nothing short of life-changing.

What is going to change is a NEW LOOK (thanks to our outstanding website builders at Collision Media), with our NEW NAME and logo up top. (Thanks to Eric Black, our outstanding graphic designer for the new logo!).

In about two weeks, our new home for all things “Blessing” will launch right here at That means that each month – starting in September – we’ll feature a practical, hands on way for YOU to help give and live the biblical Blessing. From writing a “Backpack Blessing” for your child as they head off to school, to learning how to “Bless” your own parents, to practical ways to Bless your spouse, to how to be that person of Blessing that we’re called to be in our homes, our church, our life group, workplace, school and world!

Second, you’ll soon see another face on the website joining me! Dr. Tony Wheeler is a decade long friend who is an incredible champion for the Blessing. (He’s the head of The Institute for the Blessing @ Barclay College no less!). He’ll join me in sharing tools and training, insights and answers to your questions, each month. Tony is “world class” at helping people create a culture of the Blessing in their home, workplace and church!

Finally, the reason we’re making these changes is we boiling down the Blessing Experience into THREE SIMPLE STEPS. That’s instead of us trying (and not doing well) at keeping up three websites, two blogs, and three Facebook pages! This one site will be our “official” all things “Blessing” site – including ways to link with our outstanding Blessing Challenge Ministry partners like,,, and

So start the countdown with us, and thanks for believing with us that every child, in every home and church, deserves someone who’s crazy about them!

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.
