Converging on Catalyst

Posted by Lori

One of the things Brandi and I are saying lots right now is: Can’t wait until October … Can’t wait until October.

Why? Catalyst in Atlanta October 6-8.

Sure there is the opportunity to hear from leadership authorities including Andy Stanley, Seth Godin, TD Jakes, Craig Groeschel, Francis Chan, Beth Moore, Perry Noble, and Christine Caine, along with several innovative thinkers and practitioners like best-selling author Daniel Pink, charity: water founder Scott Harrison, Gabe Lyons, First Response Team founder Tad Agoglia, and Rani Hong, winner of the United Nations Human Rights Award.

That would be good in and of itself.

But this year everything special and wonderful converged. Jud and Pete are both doing Labs … which means that Brandi and I can tag along … which means that we are going to get to see each other … which means that Tiffany and Jessica are working on trying to make it … which means we’re going to have a big, fat, super-fun Leading and Loving It get-together. And if you are attending Catalyst, we want to invite you to hang out with us.

We aren’t exactly sure what we will be doing yet, but you can be sure that it will involve lots of food and laughing. We hope to have more details soon.

Oh and FYI, there are other awesome people doing Catalyst Labs besides Pete & Jud. Speakers like Michael Hyatt, Mark Batterson, Anne Jackson, John Ortberg, Mike Foster, Reggie Joiner, Jamie Tworkowski, Alan Hirsch, Gayle Haggard, Chris Hodges, Jon Acuff, Tim Elmore, Charles Lee, Chris Seay, Chris and Phileena Heuertz, and others.

So, of course I’ve got to know … who is planning on being there?

Weekend Glimpse … Photo Style

This weekend was our Baptism Celebration weekend. It is the weekend where we do open, spontaneous, outdoor baptisms. Jud preached about baptism, people decided they were all-in, and they responded.

The catch … it was FREEZING! Had to be one of the coldest late-May weekends ever. I must have checked the weather on my phone 20 times. The temp never topped 58* on Sunday. That is winter like for us Vegas folks. The wind was blowing 20-30 miles per hour. And the water wasn’t heated. So, as I stood crying, watching all of those people shivering as they followed the Lord in baptism, all I could think was … that is MAJOR love and dedication to Jesus.

One of my favorite things is that families can link arms and get baptized together. It is really special. Here are some pictures:

2nd Birthday … the Giveaway

Today is the 2nd Bloggy Birthday of this here blog.

So … in order to celebrate … or to grab hold of an excuse to give stuff away, we’re going to do a mass giveaway.

This is my husband’s new book: Uncensored Truth: A No-Spin Guide to the Christian Faith

“In Uncensored Truth, Jud Wilhite offers a straightforward guide to the core beliefs of Christianity and shows why they matter and how they apply to life. Jud leads a no-holds-barred discussion about everything from God and Jesus to the Bible’s teaching on end times, heaven and hell. He shows how discovering God’s uncensored truth leads one to rediscover God s uncensored grace in a fresh way.” – Product Review on Amazon

Jud wrote this book as the simplest, most engaging way to explain the essentials of the faith as he possible.

So … I have 10 copies of this book to give away to celebrate. All you have to do is leave a comment. I’ll draw the winners at random Sunday night, and announce them on Monday. You can find the book at Central Online Bookstore and Amazon.

Ok … on your mark … get set … go comment:
