1 – Grace Elizabeth

1<<< 2 – Rebuild And the Number One post of the year was prompted by a youtube clip. You’ll have to read the original post to watch it, but it is totally worth it. Here’s the excerpt:

Noted youth ministry author Kenda Dean suggests that parents consider getting “radical” about faith. She believes that parents who perform one act of radical faith in front of their children convey more than a multitude of sermons and mission trips. Dean contends that it is not enough to only graceget radical; we need to explain, she says, that “this is how Christians live. If you don’t say you’re doing it because of your faith,” Dean adds, “kids are going to say ‘my parents are really nice people.’ It doesn’t register that faith is supposed to make you live differently, unless parents help their kids connect the dots.” Parents, especially Grace Elizabeth’s dad at the 1:24 mark, are already heroic. Let’s encourage them to be heroic on faith as well.

This post lead to writing 10,000 more words, which you can be assured you will be seeing in the New Year. Want to see 2011’s Top Ten?>>>
