Facial recognition challenges

Recently I have become aware that I am facially-challenged. Whenever we watch movies, Albert goes, “That’s so-and-so actor from so-and-so movie!” and I go, “Huh? How can you tell?” Angela YeeAngela Yee is a church leadership systems consultant as well as a professional designer. She helps church leaders “get it done” by assisting with vision […]

Kansas City part 2

The retreat for the leadership cohort was in some ways so very quick and in other ways felt like an extended time. It’s hard to believe that we spent all day Monday, all day Tuesday, and half a day Wednesday together — went so quickly, but now that I am home it feels like it […]

Volunteer sweet spot

It has been ages since I have posted on Visual Church Leader but finally… a post reflecting on helping volunteers find their sweet spot. I also got tired of the dark look and went with a cleaner template that showed the posts in a more graphical format. Obviously I am still learning how to make […]

@masterchef at work

Creating awe through special effects

I put up a post on Design Arts Today about a presentation that I thought was fascinating. It was Rob Legato’s talk about how he created visual effects for some movies. What was so interesting to me was thinking about all the subconscious thoughts and emotions we get when we watch these scenes — and […]

Sleep deprivation

Sleep is my constant challenge. For a while I was on some meds that caused me to do some weird things, like fall out of bed and not remember it the next morning! One day I got up in the middle of my sleep to go to the bathroom and tried to write down the […]

Baby therapy

September has been an overly-busy month for me. So busy and stressful that unfortunately it has affected my health and I have felt in a bit of a decline lately. However, yesterday I was able to take a little time and get some of the best therapy around — holding my baby nephew! Angela YeeAngela […]

Kids, work and connections

Alas, the opportunity to blog has been few and far between lately with the crazy fall schedule. I am amazed I am still energetic as I have been up since 5:30 am (compliments of insomnia). Today was a good day, though! It’s always a good day when I get to spend time with my kids! […]
