Mostly because I know NOTHING about the Bible, and would like to absorb it (directly or indirectly) through chatting with other Christian friends; and partly because it’s just fun to get together with people you have something in common with.
This week at our church (Bellevue Community Church), they started something new in an attempt to facilitate getting to know fellow church members, and to simply bring people together to share our views on life, love, church, religion, and living life to the fullest.
Over the course of 40 days, 400 groups of 8-10 individuals are getting together in neighborhoods all across Nashville. We’re all reading David Foster’s book, “Accept No Mediocre Life“, jotting down our daily thoughts and goals, and then getting together each week to watch a DVD that Pastor Dave made to go along with the book.
It’s fun! It’s motivating! And it’s an eye-opening experience…
For me, it’s simply a way to get centered again. It reminds me to step back and re-focus on the things that are really important in my life.
Our friends Mark and Erin signed up to be the “leaders” for our team of 7 (plus 1 virtual member — our friend Mike in Mississippi).

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
