Discover and Engage Your Passion

What are you passionate about? I’m not talking about painting your beer gut in Dallas Cowboy blue to convince me that your a fanatic Cowboy supporter.

Nor am I talking about your career, your possessions, maybe not even…gulp…your family. I’m referring to a passion that impacts others. A passion that changes another person’s destiny.

Does any passion like that exist for you?

I know for many of you one or more passion does! So much so that it’s a part of your identity. When others talk about you, your passion comes up in the conversation.

You have a passionate heart, but…

You might be like many that I talk to. You hear a story about an foster kid; about refugee families; about living life on life with your neighbors. Some kind of story that kindles a desire deep within you.

“If I knew how to help.” “If I had the financial means or time.” I hear something like that often.

So you have a passionate heart. You might even have a specific passion. Yet, you don’t know how to engage that passion. You don’t know how to rearrange your priorities or how to get involved.

You’re not alone!

I have no idea what you’re talking about!

I don’t think any of you are saying that. But you might be. I know that’s how many people live their lives. It’s all about themselves. If that does describe you, I hope to awaken what I believe God has planted within everyone of us—

A compelling need to reach out beyond ourselves to impact others in a positive way. He sends us.

Why Am I Telling You All of This?

I am talking about this because I am re-branding my site. Tweaking is more like it. I am learning that a person will spend only a few seconds on a new site to determine whether that site will help them or not.

I have written a lot about my passions, but what about you and yours? How can I help you discover and engage your passion(s)?

Some of you share the same or similar passions that I have like orphan care and mission work. I will keep writing about those.

But I know I can help others discover their passion too! So, I will write about that as well.

Value Proposition

So here is my value proposition—I Help Passionate People Discover Their Calling in this World and Help Them Learn How to Engage and Fulfill It. 

What do you think? I really do want your feedback?

My goal is to provide more clarity about what a reader will get from my site. My objective is to help you be “the Hero” in your own life, not read about me being one in my life!

Currently the tagline at the top of my site reads, “Missional Lifestyle”. I know that doesn’t mean much to most people.

I will replace it with a boiled down version of my value proposition like this—”Discover and Engage Your Passion!

Other Changes

The best way to access my content is to be an email subscriber. That way you don’t have to remember to visit the site or catch a post on FB or Twitter. However, I realize that not everyone wants to get every post. Some want blogs about orphan care while others just want ones about missions.

So, I will soon give you the option of what kind of emails you want sent to you. So stay tuned for that!

Along those lines, I am also creating a short ebook about How to Discover Your Passion that I will give away to all email subscribers. It should be good!

Again, please let me know what you think about this direction I am taking. Will it benefit you? Is there other ways I can help you “be the Hero”? Leave comments here or on Facebook.
