The Indelible Art Of Storytelling – The CMB Momentum Event

As you may know, it’s been a privilege to share stories weekly on the Keep The Faith show, which is now reaching nearly 2 million listeners each weekend around the world.

As my work has largely been to tell stories from everyday life that capture what it means to live out the “heart of worship,” I’ve been invited to do a keynote for the Christian Music Broadcaster’s (CMB) annual gathering.

DJs from across the country, artists, and record label leaders will be coming together, and I see this as a great privilege. The fact that it’s held at Disney and my beautiful wife can come? All the better.

The title of my talk is:

The Indelible Art Of Storytelling:
How To Help Your Listeners Never Forget What You Say

These men and women are, in many homes, offices, and cars, the frontline faith voices many Christians are hearing week in and week out.

I’m looking forward to helping them tell effective, memorable stories that never leave their listeners.

This quote really says it all, from Jimmy Neil Smith, the Founder and President of the International Storytelling Center in Tennessee:

“We are all storytellers. We all live in a network of stories. There is no stronger connection between people than storytelling.”

I couldn’t agree more. I welcome your prayers for Momentum, and my part within it.





Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help 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. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. 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.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
