God's Personal Brand

personal-brand-max-lucado-easterIn college, I studied business administration.  As part of the curriculum, I read online business articles, mostly found through LinkedIn.  It was fascinating to find how many articles focused on "personal branding."

Coffee & Care Commonalities

coffee-mercy-shipsWhen I was in high school, I worked at Starbucks.  Up until my employment there, I had not been much for coffee.  The ambiance-loving, stoked-about-life teenager that I was fared well in that coffee house environment.  AND, that's where my love (friends call it "obsession" or "addiction") for coffee began.

Between creating fun drinks like caramel macchiatos, wiping counters, and refilling the Splenda containers, I had a wonderful opportunity to observe people's behaviors.

Focusing on Our Savior

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

That was one of the themes of #NRB15 for me. 

We've seen many changes in Christian radio through the years -- technology and delivery platforms have emerged, social media has come on the scene,  ministry organizations, speakers and industry leaders may have changed,  and yet, the most important element of the NRB remains the same - our steadfast commitment to sharing the saving message of Jesus Christ.
