Crashing the Mancave

Apparently even though I am “girly” I have gained entrance to the Deadly Viper Online Mancave. Jud and I, along with Mike Foster, are going to be talking about marriage. So, would love to invite you girly ladies to come and join me in crashing the Online Mancave on Tuesday at 6pm PST. I’ll be there and would love to chat!

Deadly Viper Silver

DeadlyViperSilverDeadly VIper Character Assassins releases on Thursday. I’m very excited about it. This is one of my favorite leadership books. Yes, my husband co-wrote it with Mike Foster, so I might be a bit biased. But I’ve lead several small groups through it and I think it is the best things out there about integrity and character in leadership. You can check out their Deadly Viper blog.

Here is the info on the book: Deadly VIper Character Assassins is a kung fu inspired book on leadership integrity. With provocative and honest insights on burnout, out of control emotions, sex, money, transparency, and second chances, Deadly Viper is a must read for every leader looking for sustained success. So whether you’re an executive at a large company, a daring entrepreneur, a gifted salesman, or serving at a church or non-profit, Deadly Viper Character Assassins will engage you in the critical conversations about finding true meaning in life and leadership.

So, since it is coming out, of course I must have a give away. Up for grabs: two Deadly Viper sets. That is the book, DVD and Small Group Guide. I will draw for the winner or the book’s release date, Thursday Oct 1st.

How do you enter? Just leave a comment (on my blog, Facebookers) with your favorite kung-fu movie. Don’t have one? Tell me why you don’t love a good kung-fu movie.

My favorite is “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.” I also loved “The Crow” in High School. And I will always have a special place in my heart for Daniel-san and his crane kick at the end of “Karate Kid.” How about you?

Kicking Character Assassins in the Face

Deadly ViperA while ago my fabulous husband, Jud, and his best friend Mike, wrote a really great book called Deadly Viper Character Assassins. If you aren’t familiar with Deadly Viper, you might want to be. It is a great resource for your church, staff, small group, or yourself. In fact, we’ve done a whole message series (which are free downloads on iTunes) around it at Central, and I’ve lead our pastor’s wives through the book as well.


Here is the latest in the battle against the assassins:

1. Deadly Viper, Silver is coming out in September. You can pre-order it here. It will have an extra chapter, a small group discussion guide, additional cartoons and graphics, and some other surprises.


2. You can also download the free audio version of Deadly Viper, but you should really order the book because it is beautiful.


3. There is a Deadly Viper fan page on Facebook where you can keep up with all of the latest news.


4. The follow up book, People of the Second Chance, is in the works. They are writing like mad men … and I know it is going to be great. Oh and of course just as amazing design-wise.


5. You can always read the boys’ thoughts on their blog, or follow Jud and Mike on Twitter.


Anyone read the book? Let me hear your thoughts on it.
