Prayer is What You Believe It Is

An interview with me about Ancient Prayer on Garnet News.


Starting on February 29th (Leap Day) and for next 30 days, I invite you to challenge yourself and your perceptions of who you are and take a leap of faith with me.

Some of the people I most admire make their art their business, while others make business an art form. In honor of Leap Day on February 29th, 2016, I’m starting A Leap Of Faith Challenge. I’m going to profile, interview or feature some of the people I most admire across a variety of disciplines and ask them about their own leap of faith, and how the rest of us can find inspiration in their achievements. Either that or I’ll be sharing some of my favorite resources and books, movies or websites that have inspired me to take a leap to the next big thing when I felt more like crawling under the covers. I’m also going to send out a daily prompt and challenge and invite you to sign up and participate — well, that part is probably a bit overly optimistic, but you can sign up here. Questions? Comments? Tips and tricks of your own? Feel free to drop me a line using the form below. And if you’re socially inclined, please use the hashtag #ALeapOfFaithChallenge so we can better find each...
