  • Adam’s Rules for Twitter

    You’ve seen my rules for blogging. With many people using the social media 360—  blogging, Facebook, and Twitter simultaneously– I thought it would be helpful to share my Twitter rules. These guide my use of the site and I think would act as a good primer for those getting into it. Rule #1: Don’t forget […]

  • Signs of Health

    I’ve been open about my struggles to find a healthy work pace. I’m not sure why but I have an innate tendency to want to be plugged into work 24/7. This isn’t new… I’ve been this way since high school. I remember stopping in on the little restaurant I worked at on my nights off […]

  • Top 5 iPhone Apps I Use

    As they say, my dock is full. Kristen and I have been iPhone users for a couple of months now. So far we love it! One unintended consequence of using iPhone is that our monthly cell phone bill actually went down. Never expected that. Like most users, I actually use the phone part of the […]

  • How Not to Be a Jerk

    I’ve noticed a crazy pattern. Help me understand it. Cause: A Christian leader will say or blog or tweet or Facebook something over-the-top. Hey, it happens.

  • Giving Thanks

    My family isn’t one that will likely go around the table and share what they are thankful for. But that doesn’t mean I am lacking gratitude this Thanksgiving. Here’s a few things I’m especially thankful for. #1 I am thankful for my red hot smokin’ wife, who is a stone cold fox, and two kids, […]

  • Is Twitter Killing Blogs?

    The youth ministry world has seen a decline in the quantity and quality of youth ministry blogs. I don’t have any research to back that statement up, but as a person who spends his life blogging the world of youth ministry I can say that I find it harder and harder to find great blog […]

  • Oops. A little over technology

    It seems my eagerness to spread the word about the YS podcast may have actually hurt our distribution a little. I think the right word is “counterproductive.” With the new format for the podcast I thought it would be helpful to cross-publish it a few places. So you may have seen it pop up on […]

  • What am I working on?

    Here’s a quick rundown of the things I’m up to over at YS. #1 I post regularly at the new YS blog.  Here are 3 posts you should check out. Big vision for Cabot. Youth Workers Who Twitter. Carrie Clausen and Her Youth Group. I’m loving the blog. It’s really a fun way to connect […]
