Why You Might Experience Serious Regret this Thursday

Why You Might Experience Serious Regret this Thursday

My friends have done it again.  This time they’ve teamed up with 20 different producers to put together the most epic bundle I’ve ever seen for Children’s Pastors.  It’s really cool stuff, but the only catch is that they can only do this for 144 hours, then it’s over.  This deal ends on Thursday at noon.  If you want to turn $97 into $2,000 for your ministry, snag this and don’t cry yourself to sleep on Thursday night.  Visit www.only144.com to check it out.

Guerrilla Parenting: Talk to your kids through play.

Guerrilla concept #1 – Talk to your kids through play.

I have heard lots of parents say that their kids don’t talk to them. I am still figuring this out myself but I often find my kids talk to me when I understand how they communicate and when I understand where they communicate.

The other day I was playing with my youngest and he started acting out a situation where another kid was mean to him. Because we were playing he was totally honest and totally open. He told me the whole situation he was facing through a 2 inch lego Luke Skywalker. There is something about playing kids totally throw themselves into it they lose themselves in this imaginary world they create for themselves. Playing legos or the toy of your childs choice is on the quickest ways to find out what is going on in their world.

Another time in our house where the communication flows is right before bedtime. I am not sure why this is the case, my theory is they are trying to stall because they don’t want to go to sleep so they will do what ever they can to stall. Whatever the reason we have had some amazing conversations right before our kids drift off to sleep. Some of them deep and profound others fun and just plain hilarious.

The main problem with parent/child communication is parents not knowing when and where their kids open up. When we get in parent mode we just want to get the info we need so we force kids to communicate in a way that fits our time and space. Do we need to do this sometimes absolutely. Should this be the only way we communicate with our kids. No.

So do yourself a favor play with your kids and put them to bed 20 minutes early so you have time to talk. Go Guerrilla your kids deserve it.

6 ways I overcome writers block.

The irony of this post is I am writing about writers block because I have writers block. I usually have no problem knowing what I am going to write for about two weeks at a time.

I also have a magazine article due at the end of next week. This is not a good time for writers block.

How do I personally get writers block

1. Stress
2. Sickness
3. Lots of creative demand (been doing lots of creative work lately)
4. Lack of sleep
5. Overwhelmed by projects and deadlines
6. Having to write something

How do I overcome writers block

1. Read more.
2. Talk to creative people
3. Change my environment. Get up and walk around.
4. Go to New York City – Most creative place I know.
5. Drink Coffee
6. Take a 15 min nap

That’s what I do what do you do?
