Must Read
Tom McFarlin and I are starting up something new on Monday.
Much like resource of the day, we will be releasing resources, blog post, articles, websites, videos, music, or whatever else we find interesting on the web for you to check out. 3 days out of the week we will compile a list of resources that you can check out. Ones that we think are worth your time and energy to read.

The reason for this idea is two fold. The first reason, there is a ton of information out there, so much so that it can be pretty overwhelming. The sad thing is that some stuff gets lost in the shuffle. Now we all have our sites that we check everyday. But what about that blog post that is worth your time, or that resource that you did not know about? How are you to find that?
The second reason is that we know that you do not have time to sift through all of this info. You have stuff to do, people to see, and a job to work. This will be a great way for you to see some stuff that you might have missed and get a chance to check it out.

It will be very easy to see all of these resources listed.
It will be here on this blog (thoughtsaboutnothing.com) that all of these resources will be listed.
You can find the link tweeted out that day from myself or Tom tweets.

So stay tuned, because Monday the must reads start.

DevotionalDiva
Renee Johnson is doing some great things. What things you might ask?
Well lets see, she has written a book called The Faith book of Jesus. A devotional written for 20-somethings by a 20-something. Each devotional has a daily verse, commentary, prayer, and a quote from a real 20-something. (also go here and help her out by taking her survey).

She also blogs here sends out tweets here
She is working on a new project that is sure to give the twentysomethings a voice.

Check her out and say hello….

ChristmasforKenya
UBC (David Crowders Church in Waco) launched a great program called Christmas for Kenya.
Their church puts out a Christmas CD each year an in turn seeks donations that go to build wells in Kenya.

This is a great way to raise money and put out good Christmas music.
