A great way to save some green!
Let’s talk about reach.
My friend, Laura, partnered with her friend, Angi, to write an ebook.
reach; how to use your social media influence for the glory of God.
Let me get honest with you for a minute. I was excited to read the ebook when Laura asked me to, but I arrogantly thought I pretty much got the gist of what the book would say before starting.
I was wrong.
So. Very. Wrong.
Within just the first few pages I was challenged in my thinking.
How are we using social media? How much could we influence the world for Christ if we all used social media for Him? And used it effectively?
In today’s world,where less than 1% of Christians will ever share their faith even once, starting the funnel, starting a spiritual conversation, seems to be the hardest part.
reach is not just a how-to book. It is full of inspiring stories that illustrate biblical principals. Take a peek at the table of contents:
The Most Exciting Time in the History of the World
Microwave Generation vs Coal Generation
Redefining the Mission Field
Keep the End Goal in Focus
Live on Mission
God Uses the Willing
The Reflection Effect
Comparison and Jealousy
Making the Minors Majors
A Unique Perspective
Facebook, Twitter and Linked-In
I’ve just scratched the surface of this book in both my reading and my review. The timing is so exciting. Tie this ebook in with Sun Stand Still and the Tribe Writers class by Jeff Goins that I am taking…. God has me standing on the precipice of something big and new. Each piece of this puzzle is falling in to place, but the image has yet to be revealed.
I’m shaking, y’all.
Shaking with anticipation of how God plans to use little ole me. How God plans to use each of you for His glory!
So, I’m sure you will want to get a copy of this book. Not only do Laura and Ami encourage us to use social media for Christ, they give us the tools to do so.
A construction worker walks up to a job site, blue print in hand. He knows the house needs to be built. That it needs a roof and walls, floors and windows. He has a picture of what it should look like in his head, but he is lacking tools. Should he use screws or nails? He doesn’t know which tools and materials to use to best accomplish the task. He has no way of realistically accomplishing the mission before him without the proper tools.
We don’t want to send you out into the mission field without an idea of what needs to be done and without equipping you with the right tools. Our hope is to give you a bunch of practical ideas about how to use social media sites for God’s glory.
