Media and video games are eroding our kids' attention spans. When should we stop fighting it and use technology to our kids' advantage?

Are you an attention-seeking artist? I know it sounds like a silly question because what artist doesn’t seek some form of attention with their art? Artists create not only for the love of creating, but for their work to be seen and appreciated. What filmmaker doesn’t want their film being seen by the masses? Does a painter paint in order to stick their canvas in the closet? Why would a composer write a score to be heard by no one? Artists are»

“What gets our attention determines our direction and, ultimately, our destination.” – Andy Stanley It is a tough time that we live in. We are constantly bombarded with distractions. People, products, objects, companies, etc. are all vying for our attention. It is difficult to stay focused on who and what we need to in an environment like this. What has your attention lately? Is it bringing you life, health, wholeness? Or is it leading you»

If you don’t love attention please raise your hands. The truth is that we all love attention. And we work hard to get attention, sometimes in the wrong way. Vesa Härkönen via Compfight One of my favorite movies is Grease. The first Grease, not any of the remakes. But the lesson Grease teaches a girl is not a good one at all. The gist of the movie is that a girl moves into a new neighborhood, and sees a guy that she spent the summer hanging o»

Have you ever felt like you were wasting a person's time?  Have you ever talked with someone who is completely distracted and you can tell that she is focusing her attention somewhere else?  Unfortunately, I know that I have done this to somebody before, even my own children, and I don't want it to continue.  I know how it feels because it has happened to me plenty of times. Funny thing is it happ»

I'm culling old not-worth-keeping photos from my ginormous archives when I stumble on this one -- with the "Be Still" coffee cup next to a stack of books for morning devos on my backyard swing.  That backyard swing's been reduced to rubble and I'm not sure I still have that coffee cup, either -- it's not in the rotation of current favorites. {You have favorites, too, don't you?}  But I do still have coffee {iced coffee these sultry summer»

I've been resisting. As if fighting myself and restraining words from coming is somehow making me better. Many times recently, I've made promises with myself to sit down and do the work because I need to write, for my own sake. Writing is where my crooked thoughts find a way from their cramped quarters. I've been here too many times to know-- this is just Summer.  The leisurely pace is stained on my toe-nails which are displayed by a sim»

By Ellen Di Giosia I’ve been giving up things for Lent for a number of years now, and it’s become a bit mundane. I could give up Starbucks, of course, or chocolate, or eating out, but I’d just go hog-wild on Easter Sunday, and something tells me that Jesus wouldn’t care for that. So for the last few years, I’ve thought about disciplines that, once practiced during Lent, might become long-term changes for the better. This year my friend»

I’m really stoked that besides all the national media press (including Cincinnati), most major Philadelphia area TV and radio stations and newspapers will be at CCV this Sunday, March 30th, to cover my interview with Pete Rose. But I’m WAY more excited to hear all the stories from CCV’ers about how so many of their non-church going friends are planning to join us that day. Undoubtedly there are going to be many join us who have never heard»

During chapel at the college where we work, I hit someone in the back of the head with the collection plate. It was one of those heavy, gold offering trays, too. Andy handed the plate to me, and I passed it on without looking. A no-look pass, if you will. Then all at once, thunk! The unsuspecting student in front of me (a guy I didn’t know, of courseit couldn’t have been one of my own boys) got a surprise whack to the back of the head. It was»
