Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Super excited to learn about this group, also very excited to learn from you all.

I work for a ministry called Young Life.  I have been an Area Director in the Kansas City area for 15 years and this year began a new part-time role of Regional Innovation Director.  After I started to listen to Dan about five years ago I decided to start my own business on the side two years ago.  We do a multitude of things from social media training, website development, and VA work for clients. My wife and very much enjoy doing this together!

Our heart is to help people in ministry lean into a gifting or passion and monetize it so they have more freedom to do what they really are passionate about in ministry. All our clients are in some form of ministry and growing a platform.

So, I am super interested in what you all are doing creatively and how you're growing!  Looking forward to the community here.

Thanks for the encouragement, David - I'm impressed with your work as well. I  like the powerful simplicity of the message in your video and the creative way it's presented.  I clicked on the Do You Hear What I Hear video, too - nice! I don't dare do live art - my process is messy and unorthodox! I get updates from Comix35 on FB, but I have never really looked into it - good idea.

Welcome back Christina. I am really glad you joined us. I love how you do your cartoon videos. That is some seriously well done stuff. I also do cartoon ministry videos but mine are a little different. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97dnvR1tzTY I also do some painting videos, etc. Much of what I do us live painting and speaking in churches but I do love making the videos. I'm currently working on a piece based on the casting crowns song stained glass masquerade. My video channel is at http://youtube.com/amokarts I saw your post on the artists Arise page and noticed you are going to Thailand. You may want to be in contact with Nate Butler at Comix35 he does a lot of work with helping cartoonists spread the Gospel especially in Asia, Central and South America. He might be a good resource for you.

One of the goals I set for this year was to create 12 new products to begin earning some passive income. I have set up a new website called http://dweisscreative.com. I wanted to test out a download program, so I generated a simple art book using symmetry and grids to help young artists with their observation skills. I call it Making Faces. I'm pretty happy with how it all worked out. Check it out if you get the chance. http://www.dweisscreative.com/uncategorized/new-product-from-dweiss...

My apologies, I have been a little disconnected for a few days. My son is in the process of pursuing his own dream. He just bought a farm and we have been helping him and his wife to get moved in. I am so happy for them. He has wanted to be a farmer since he was an infant and he has been working on farms since he was twelve. He went into business for himself a few years ago renting land and doing custom work for others. Having the farm is another step to his dream.

Thank you for the invite to the group. I haven't read The Artisan Soul by Erwin McManus but I'm going to start 2015 with it. Thank you for the recommendation!
