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.

Fatherhood Fridays: Our Future

A child looks up at the stars and wonders.

A great father puts a child on his shoulders

and helps them to grab a star.-Reed Markham

My hope is to teach my son that, not only can he, but how to reach for the stars.

Summer Squash & Zucchini with Garlic and Butter

Every other Sunday, it's family dinner at my Parent's house. We rotate bringing different items such as salad, rolls, dessert and other side dishes. Two weeks ago, my Sister-in-Law brought some squash & zucchini from their garden. She steamed them in a pot, added a few other ingredients and it was fabulous. I asked her how I might recreate and she shared with me. Thankfully, I had most of the ingredients from our Borski Farm share.…

Are You Authentic?

I learn a lot about myself through art. In my class yesterday we talked about being authentic.  “What does authentic mean to you?” and “How does that relate to your art?” We each wrote our response on paper so as not to influence the answer someone else might give. It was a great exercise!

Now art takes on many forms.  You certainly don’t have to have a paint brush in your hand in order to be creative.  One of my teachers,…

Sketch Challenge

Hi Rachel,

Here are two of my sketches,  I had a 68 Mustang as my first car so I have a steering wheel, and my motorcycle boot. 

I am really enjoying this random assortment of subjects.  Thanks,

Oh, well my pictures aren't up loading, sorry about that, I've tried for a couple days now and made them smaller etc.  They just take too long or just don't upload.  I'll have to keep trying.

Salad, Glorious Salad: Appetizer or Main Course?

Due to popular demand, I am re-posting our most delicious salad recipes. I have been guilty of eating a few bowls of each prior to a meal. This left me full and not participating in the main course. Oh well, leftovers are nice.

Enjoy the fresh ingredients and the wonderful taste of each.…

Uniqueness, joy and healing

One reason or another, a lot of us lost sight of who we truly are as we “mature” or “become more responsible”. Elida Evans, in a groundbreaking study on cancer personality in 1926, wrote “the development of individuality is a safeguard to life and health“. …

Sacred Cows

Is much of your day spent solving an endless supply of problems? Are you only fighting the symptoms of a deeper problem or the problem itself?

Did I miss a lesson?

 Yesterday was the first day of school in my city and many surrounding counties. As I thought about all the children going back to school a question popped in my head?

Hand Back the Pen

When others come to us with their problems, it is really easy to provide the solution. Learning to resist this temptation and instead help work out a solution and not take ownership is key to good parenting, friendship and leadership.

Thanks to all my 48days friends!

Hello 48days friends,

It's been a long and challenging journey for me this past year as I've pursued my certification as a Career Development Practitioner and I am truly grateful for all the help and encouragement I have received from so many along the way. Many of the assignments I completed throughout the year required that I send out questions, surveys, requests for volunteer clients, and conduct interviews. Many of you responded to those requests and gave of…
