Vintage Art of Eloquence Article!

7 Habits of Highly Successful Communicators is an article I wrote many years ago, but it still has great lessons for us today. With so many parents choosing to homeschool their children after Covid, I thought I'd give you all a bit to work with!    Eighty-seven percent of what we do all day long is communication-related. It was such an important skill that the Lord saw fit to include the topic in His Word many times over. Successful communicators make successful people because it touches almost every single aspect of our lives from personal to professional. Here are seven things that all successful communicators have in common. You can too! To read the rest of the article, click here!...

God Isn't Dead, But Grace Seems to Be

God isn't dead, but grace seems to be! I've been harping on grace and calm, rational discussion now for many months. The ugliness of society's rhetoric has taken a dangerous turn recently.  Masks and other things relevant to Covid19 and the resulting difficulties have brought out anger on both sides of the political aisle, but have you seen the video of a masked woman who screams at a young mother with her two young children? She says, "I hope you all die!" There's actually a movement now that says it's okay to scream at someone who doesn't think like you do, believe like you do. It's directed AT liberals but there are some conservatives who have taken to shouting against...

You Suck! Buy My Stuff?

So, the other day I was deleting my SPAM emails when I came across this:    I've hidden his last name and site to protect his identity, but I felt this was a hilarious example of how NOT to communicate to your potential customers/clients. It's a rather short email, but there is actually quite a lot there to talk about. Let's take this from the top. First, I have to congratulate Johnny on his email address and subject line. You can't see his email address here, but it looks like a domain email instead of the nonsense I usually see (eg: xpt157Nv@xovurymard.co). His subject line, though it makes it appear as if I had requested some info from him (re:____),...

Technology vs Skill

In my recommitment to share my expertise in communication skills, each week, I'm going to be bringing some of my old popular articles out of mothballs. It's amazing how much more timely they are now than they were when I wrote them.  This month I'm sharing an article I wrote many years ago about the difference between communication technology as it's often confused with communication skill. I called it, Communication Technology Doesn't Replace Communication Skill!  Though we are a more connected society than ever before, our communication skill has suffered in the translation. So many more people are ABLE to communicate with more people around the world, but due to the faceless version of our techie communication, we are more emboldened to...
