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.

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.

The Curse of Next Year Will Be Different

So, you think next year will be different…AGAIN?

Everyone starts out with a level playing field but only those with the best strategies reach the most success.


One loss, one false move, one wrong decision and the chance to have it all might have to wait until “Next Year”. Well, that’s true of college football anyway.

I love college football. I love…

New Year's Resolutions Are A Waste of Time

New Year’s resolutions are a waste of time! Most of the resolutions don’t last beyond the end of January. They are bound to fail. Resolutions are often not thought out, have no action steps and are rarely written down. They often lack specificity.

I want to lose 20 pounds by summer

NOT I want to lose weight

I want to earn $12,000 more each year by December

NOT I want to earn more

I will spend every Friday on a date night with my wife

NOT I want to spend…

Image may contain: tree, outdoor, text and nature

If we want to have a better life this next year, we should not spend our time reading and spreading negativity with every sad news story that comes our way. Instead, let's start speaking life into others. Yes, there is heartache in the world, but there is also joy, beauty, and life!

Here are 3 ways to start giving out life this next year.

1.  Read and listen to good positive books and audio books.

There really is no excuse in the world…

How to Cope When the Holiday's Weren't What You Expected.

Maybe it’s because of my age or my family circumstances, but this year I coached a lot of women who were coping with disappointing holiday plans. The conversation usually started like this;

Youth Will Feel Empowered By The Divine Economy Theory.

Numbers and data cannot

  • get up and move around,
  • dance to the music,
  • rejoice in friendship,
  • change their minds,
  • or relish moments of fellowship or of searching inquiry.

Santa Carried a Hefty Bag

I remember as a kid always seeing the pictures of Santa Claus, and being fascinated by his appearance. He was dressed in his classic white trimmed, red suit. He had a great white beard, and he loved giving gifts to children. What could be better?…

Thoughts on Christmas Eve

Well my wife and son are off work today, but I still have to work, today and tomorrow. Of course I'm not complaining. I get to proclaim the Gospel of Christ on the most blessed birthday of all. I count it as an extreme privilege to get to do what I do, but especially tonight.

You see if past years are any indication, my church will be full tonight. I'll see people who I haven't seen all year. Some church folks lament these people. They've even given them a nickname, "Chreasters."…

I don't believe in gambling. I don't play the lottery as a matter of conscience and faith. You can disagree if you want…
