Rarely do we have our master to-do lists totally cleared. It seems like we need more time, but what we really need is a better ability to manage what we [...]

Fantastical: A Better Calendar for your Mac and iPhone

By | 2012-11-29T18:14:30+00:00 November 29th, 2012|Uncategorized|

One of the most important elements of any professional is his or her calendar.  As worship leaders, we have to learn how to balance our time between hours of listening to music, producing videos and songs, journaling, writing, and worshipping on our own with the time we spend meeting with others, leading others, and inviting [...]

It's a new day in Waco, Texas.  If you've been following the David Crowder*Band, you know that they have officially ended their seven album series together.  DC*B was one of the most influential bands in modern worship music over the past decade.  They have gone above and beyond most other bands by finding new ways [...]

Are You Writing With Others?

By | 2016-12-15T16:31:26+00:00 April 13th, 2012|Uncategorized|

I've been trying my hand at songwriting for what feels like an eternity now. The discouraging part of it is that I've got a decent handful of half-started songs (That's right: half-started, not even close to half-finished).  I have a few people that I've tried to share some of my best musical ideas and lyrics [...]

I recently attended a conference with my wife for Scentsy Wickless Candles.  Scentsy is our family business that my wife really runs from home.  It’s been the ideal job for her and for our family. [She blogs a bit about that at kellytenney.tumblr.com] At this conference, the president of the company stood before the top [...]

I thought I’d give you all a glimpse of my electric guitar rig. Everyone has different tastes, but I’ve researched a ton at The Gear Page and some other places, and I’ve tried out a small handful of boutique dirt boxes, so this is where I am right now. Fender American Standard Stratocaster > Skreddy Screwdriver [...]

1. iTunes: You’ve got to have a place to start, and iTunes is a no brainer.  Let’s move on quickly to some other great apps. 2. Photoshop: Every church should have someone who knows how to do some professional graphic design.  You can use photoshop to design anything that requires more than a basic Word [...]
