Tag Archives: Catalyst West


window and skyI’ve finally gotten my brain back after Catalyst West. I had major brain overload during the two days of the conference. So, I’m finally ready to start reflecting on some of the things I picked up.


Here is one from Erwin McManus’ talk:

All of us have dreams inside that will only come to fruition in community … when we care more about the dreams of others than we do even for our own dreams.


For the most part, I feel like I am living my dream. I have a fabulous family. I am getting to serve God and make a difference with people. But there are a few unfulfilled dreams out there: 

1. I have this book idea rolling around in my head. I don’t know when I’ll get started on it … maybe next year when my little Kindergartner is headed off to school. I don’t know. I’m hesitant and nervous, so I’ll definitely think I’ll need lots of spurring on to get it done. To be honest, I’m not even sure I can do it. But I want to give it a try.

2. I want to do some stuff with conferences for pastor’s wives. Probably nothing like what you are thinking. Something totally different, really. But I’m hoping to get some more info out on that semi-soon.


How about you? What are your dreams? How can we encourage you, in community, to go after those dreams?


This video was made by Tripp and Tyler, Jud’s co-hosts at Catalyst. It was a huge hit a Catalyst West. Not only are Tripp and Tyler stinking hilarious, but they are truly great people with a great heart for God and ministry.





I take the world’s biggest NLT Notemaker’s Bible to church. I love it. I have to take my computer bag to lug it around. But it has huge margins and tons of note taking space. I love it.


What do you take to church with you? Thin line? Life Application? Pocket-sized? YouVersion on your iPhone? iBible, anyone?
