The Truth About Screens

group-cover-jan-2015

I had an article featured as the cover story for Group Magazine’s January/February 2015 edition entitled, The Truth About Screens.

Little old me. The cover story in the biggest magazine in youth ministry? 

That’s cool, especially when you consider…

  • I got a C+ in AP English in high school.
  • I got a B in both semesters of college English classes required for my major.
  • When I started this blog I had 1 reader… me.
  • Even now, 10+ years later, a normal day on the blog is 2,000-3,000 readers.

I’m small time. 

So, while life really is going 10,000 miles per hour, I do want (and need) to stop for a bit and dwell on this. It is an accomplishment and I’m proud of it.

And I’m very appreciative to Rick Lawrence and the folks at Group Mag for the opportunity to write anything for them, much less a feature. I’m working hard to get published in a new and bigger venues.

So it feels good. It shows that the daily grind, in the long run, still works.

Did you read the article? What did you agree or disagree with? I’m looking to improve my writing, what could I have done better?
