Open for discussion

I’ve thrown this idea out on Twitter / Facebook and got a few responses, and thought I would open it up to all of you. I do believe there are experts out there. Sometimes we all can pitch in on certain topics, offering advice that others might not be able to. I enjoy doing that with web / blog / graphic design, podcasting, etc. What I don’t believe in is that people should come across as a know-it-all (you’ve heard this on this blog frequently), but that those who have something to offer should connect with those that might be interested. Taking questions and seeking how they can be of help first. Seems like a better method to me than blasting away with answers or advice without initially connecting with those on the receiving / reading end.

That can be done with a certain skillset or general life topics. I’d like to open the door and hear what you might be curious about. Do you have any questions about how I do what I do? How to do specific things with technology (design, podcasting, blogging, etc)? Are you curious about how I have left the corporate world and served ministries while working from home? Maybe you’d like to know what it’s like being a father to three girls, or want to hear more about Marla and I? I enjoy when other people open their lives up, or share information that is requested rather than blasting it out whether the reader / listener wants it or not. Fire away!

PRAYING that our family can get through the next two months, with 20 zoos to go before August 1st! PRAISING God for giving me today, and helping me keep my eyes off of tomorrow.

  1. Gabe,

    Your transition to working from home interests me. I’ve always wanted to do work from home, serving churches, but the biggest hurdle for me is that we only have one income so if I stop working there’s no money at all coming in. Was it the same for you? How did you convince your wife that this was the right move for your family?



  2. Hi, John. Gabe didn’t convince his wife; God did. 🙂 Believe me, it’s not easy. At aaaaaall. Finances are a daily struggle. Many, many times we’ve wanted to throw in the towel. Like yesterday. And today. But watching God provide even $10 at the exact moment we need it? Unbelievable.

  3. Thanks for asking John! I’ll definitely dig into this topic for you with a blog post in the near future. Will be as open as I can be!
