Fear Punch Friday: Fear of What’s To Come

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 6.42.34 AM(via)

Have you ever been forced to wonder “what’s next?”

I mean, sure we all think about it from time to time, but there are certain points in our lives when we’ve intentionally had to wonder what God has planned for our next chapter.
But, sometimes that innocent wonder turns into nagging fear… Continue reading

30 Seconds to May

Last night I read a really interesting post by author Donald Miller called “How to Tell Your Story in 30 Seconds.” It’s about providing a CliffsNotes answer when someone says “tell me about yourself” or “what do you do.” It’s about doing it in such a way that you form a story, rather than a list of facts. I believe it also helps you add “why” to your “what.” More on that theory here.

So, without further ado, here’s my 30 Seconds to May:

My name is May Bohon. In 2010 God blessed my life by putting a mirror up to how horribly I handled the money He entrusted to me. Since then, I’ve fought my way out of debt, discovered joy in giving, lead personal finance classes and started taking steps towards working for Dave Ramsey so I can turn my passion into a career!

That was fun. :)

Your turn: What’s your 30-second story? What will it be 5 years from now?

Final thought: If you don’t conclude your story with an “!”, then is it really the story you want to tell?

The 14-year movie

Well, it finally happened: Jerod & I are engaged! β™₯

Some of you have been watching this movie for 14 years. One of you “called it” the day we met at his 16th birthday pool party. Some of you have only been watching it for a few years, but can recite the story from the beginning. Many of you finally had hope when we started dating 2+ years ago. Many of you witnessed the proposal last Saturday with family & friends. Thank you so much for being there for us. :)

“That’s all cute & good, May, but how did he do it? Get on with it!” Continue reading
