Set a goal to write a certain amount of time per day or week and stick to it. The net results will be good habits formed, a pattern created, and a LOT of content created (even if much of it isn;t very good at first).

And publish what you write. Blog it. Find a website that takes submissions. You need the feedback and you need to overcome the fear of putting your creation in from of readers.(less)

Also fit reading into the small places in life like anytime you are in a waiting room or have 10 minutes to spare before you have to leave the house. You don’t need an hour at a time to read, although that is very nice! I also find it useful to read multiple books at a time from different genres, so that way I can pick one up no matter what my mood or state of mind is. It feels less like a chore that way.(less)

Created for Belonging: Ray Ortlund’s Foreword to “Belong”

This is the foreword, written by Ray Ortlund, to my new book,  Belong: Loving Your Church by Reflecting Christ to One Another.

You belong to Christ (Mark 9:41)

God created us to belong, both to him and to one another. But our pride drove us far away, both from him and from one another. Now Jesus is bringing us back, both to him and to one another.

Belonging is an adjustment for every one of

“I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.1”
Barnabas Piper, Help My Unbelief: Why Doubt Is Not the Enemy of Faith

“They want the PK to dress like a grandparent and behave like Jesus. But they also seem to wait for the time when the pastor’s daughter makes out and the son drinks beer.”
Barnabas Piper, The Pastor's Kid: Finding Your Own Faith and Identity

“some people assume all is well, that the PK has it all together. They’re usually wrong; remember, PKs are as human as everyone else.”

“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.”
Lloyd Alexander

“When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty, I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

“Shalom, therefore, does not eschew or diminish the role of the other or the reality of a suffering world. Instead, it embraces the suffering other as an instrumental aspect of well-being. Shalom requires lament.”
Soong-Chan Rah, Prophetic Lament: A Call for Justice in Troubled Times

“It is a wonderful thing to be born on this side of the cross, knowing the full-orbed gospel. It is an even better thing to be sealed and empowered by the Spirit of God at Jesus’s behest. The coming of the Spirit was a crazy dream for Moses; it was a distant hope for Ezekiel; but it is true for you.”
Todd Miles, Superheroes Can’t Save You: Epic Examples of Historic Heresies
