AltCity.org, my new blog home is finally up. It’s taken a real long time but that’s what happens when you have 4 kids 7 years and younger. Got check it out and update any of your links. Thanks
For those of you whoever followed this blog I can now be found at www.altcity.org. See you there.
Someone said that if you are going to do a blog you should make it like your own personal magazine. I would like to try that. I think next week I am going to try at that.
Today I started training another class. This one was for Musician’s Friend & Guitar Center. We also had Breedlove in the house today for some vendor training. Branden was touring the west in the mini Breedlove tour bus but he still had a lot of crazy nice guitars. It’s not every day that you get to play several $7,000+ guitars. Fun, Fun.
I have a great desire that has been fuled by church today, friends who have stayed in the faith and are now being rewarded for serving, some articles and videos on The Resurgence, everything I have read in the bible this last week as well as over the past few years, and by the Holy Spirit – trusting and believing what Jesus says is true. That being said I made a small list of some things I can and want to do.
I want to serve the Lord by focusing on Jesus and my family.
I want to train and teach the Word.
I want to work with people and be on he front line (bidding people to come and die) through counseling, training, teaching, friendships, disicipleship, and preaching the gospel of Jesus.
I want to design things for print and web.
I want to write and play music that glorifies the Lord.
I want to lead and assist churchs with all the gifts God has given me.
I want to be a part of a movement that glorifies and forwards the cause of he gospel of Jesus Christ.
I want to plant churchs and grow new ministries and plant more churches so everyone has somplace to call a home where they can serve.
I want to reach out to people with arts and music.
I want to plan, market, and expand the tent further than my eyes can see.
All this and so much more.
God has given me so many gifts and I have worked with so many people and ministries… I am tired of being fearful of enlarging the boarders and expanding my tent. This time I am going to trust the Lord.
I hope to have my style template done for my band site and then I want to get my amplifier company site up and running. If I get good at this I may start doing design work again on the side. Right now I’m using SQL ’08 and the newest version of WordPress as my CMS. On the web design side I’m using Dreamweaver and Expression Web, and as always, Illustrator CS3 and Photoshop are my art design programs of choice.
I’m trying my first attempt at wordpress locally for the devolopment of my site www.mannerlymusic.com. We’ll see how it all goes if I decide to publish what I create.
Alright, so it has been a rarer long time yet again. It’s hard to balance being a husband, a father of 3 going on 4, working full time as a coach & trainer, doing a band, keeping up a house and yard, etc, etc. It’s because of this that I have neglected blogging. I plan on picking it back up when I get the chance. I’m pretty sure Oliver, my 13 month old, wants my attention more than the masses so this will be it for this post.
