I've said a few times 2016 was the worst year of my life, and that was not entirely because I didn't accomplish most of the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year. But I did accomplish one goal. Sort of. You see, I was going to write book #2 last year to be released this year, but I got derailed in that endeavor, and the project is now on hold. The book I DID write, however, was one I hadn't planned on writing. I was approached about writing a 31-day devotional for church communicators to help them either prevent or recover from #burnout (which you all know I'm very familiar with) following the #Christmas season, which is very arduous for people in this line of work. Well, on the 1st of this year, after months of grinding, the editor of Church Marketing Sucks (cmsucks on Twitter) and the team at the Center for Church Communications has published my devotional as an exclusive product offering for members of their #CourageousStorytellers community. Although this is a resource just for that community and is thus not publicly available for purchase, I couldn't be more proud to produce something of value for a group of church communications professionals that will last forever. I'm so grateful to God to have produced some kind of fruit in what was a hellacious 2016. Click the link in my bio to learn more about the project and how you can get at least a 7-day excerpt of the devotional or even join the community.
