Brennan Manning Artist Retreat

This time last year I had the chance to hang w/ Donald Miller (Blue Like Jazz) at in artist retreat in Nashville. It was an amazing time for reflection, questions, answers, authenticity, and inspiration.

This year was amazing as well. Brennan Manning was our guest communicator. What seemed to be a fragile old man took the stage and ignited into a powerful magnet of utter inspiration. I've read a couple of his books, and I still took 5 pages of notes.

I have traveled a lot. I have heard many speakers / communicators / preachers. Some of which I have even heard be critical of Mr. Manning's message and ministry.

Brennan speaks wisdom & experience beyond even his years!!! The small circuit of popular evangelical personalities would find it wise to rid themselves of the endless banter and just speak truth and love.... which is what the younger generations NEED.

Brennan, thank you for your words, wisdom, and message... and for helping me continue to heal my image of God and myself. Godspeed.

PORN & x3watch

X3watch is an accountability software program helping with online integrity. Whenever you browse the Internet and access a site which may contain questionable material, the program will save the site name on your computer in a hidden folder. A person of your choice (an accountability partner) will receive an email containing all possible questionable sites you may have visited within the month. This information is meant to encourage open and honest conversation between friends and help us all be more accountable.

X3watch is now available for MAC. The wait is over. Download the beta version today. There is also a Pro Version of X3watch that is available for windows.
