Introducing: Getting Things Done

I have decided to re-order my highly right-brained world and work according to the system purported in Getting Things Done by David Allen. I don’t know what’s come over me; probably my wife’s prayers and a gracious God.

I’ve tried everything through the years, and almost get nauseous when I think of personal ordering plans that would appeal to executives and business suits (ick… just ick). I’ve always strayed from them as soon as I start, though I’ve tried and tried, and learned how to make projects happen, and yet my memory seems to progressively weaken as I stress and create a fray at the last minute.

As for the past week, I’m accomplishing daily tasks and projects, with a renewed peace of mind and personal order, that is astounding for me. Everything, absolutely everything, is written in a system I trust, can rely on, and that propels me in next actions at every turn.

I’m just fresh into it, but I highly recommend the model – you and I might actually become more reliable. It’s available in book and CD audio – I’d do audio first, then read the book.

Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
