Make a Difference Tour

As y'all read this I'm on my way to the Make a Difference Tour in Corbin, KY. I can't wait to see some of my favorite artists like Michael W. Smith, Third Day, Tobymac, and Jason Gray. Oh, and Max Lucado is speaking, too!

The whole night is all about doing big things that we were created to do. We have a great God, who has equipped us each to to make a difference in someone's life. Max Lucado's new book is called Outlive Your Life, and that's what he'll be speaking about at the show. So that's got me thinking. What kind of legacy am I leaving, not just in my writing but with my life? And how can I use my books to serve others through more than messages of hope and faith in God?

I've heard about a lot of authors who give away their books to people going through chemo or other extreme medical treatment. I've also seen members of my local Christian writers group collect books to send to men and women in the military.

It's amazing how simple these acts are and how, done with love, they show Jesus to others. And these acts leave a legacy of love. I don't know about you, but I sure want to leave that kind of legacy. So what do you think about outliving your life? What are you doing to leave a legacy?

I'm happy to report that it was awesome! Tobymac and Third Day were pretty loud, but the show was very fun! :) And it really did make me think about how I'm making a difference.
