Book Review-Made to Stick

Honey. Duct Tape. Elmer’s Glue. They’re all made to stick, but they’re not the kind of Made to Stick that Dan and Chip Heath are talking about. They’re talking about those mental viruses that replicate inside your head over and over again until you want relief – and things much less pervasive but sticky nonetheless. […]

Updating PowerApps Screens and Forms Programmatically

PowerApps is a powerful form generation platform –but the data-flows-centric model can be more than a bit quirky to use if you’re used to more programmatic approaches to form generation, whether that’s in InfoPath, Microsoft Access, WinForms in Visual Studio, or some other technology. The expectation is that you can assign a value to a […]

Kin-to-Kid Connection: Appropriate Vulnerability

When we talk about human connections, it often necessarily involves vulnerability. Our most meaningful relationships are the ones in which we make ourselves vulnerable in front of others, because it means we can trust those people. But how vulnerable should we be?

Book Review-The Greatest Generation

I’ve heard the stories – or rather I’ve heard the sensationalized stories – about how World War II came to be and how it ended. However, somewhere in the reduction done for history books, I missed the importance of the event. I don’t mean the importance to the world. I mean the importance to the […]

Innovation Fuel

Creativity and innovation are taunting large corporate CEOs today. You’ve undoubtedly heard dozens of stories of large corporations getting ripped apart due to market forces created by tiny startups because of their creativity and innovation. Everyone lusts after that new idea that will make the business easier and bring in profit by the truckload. The […]

Kin-to-Kid Connection: How Do You See God?

Parents of teens often don’t see how their faith or lack of faith shapes what their children see.  Nor do they recognize some of the hidden messages they picked up as children.  How you see God can shape how you and your children interact. In this talk, “How Do You See God?”, we take a […]
