2008: The Year in Review

Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.

–Psalm 103:2

It’s New Years Day here in the States–a great day to ponder everything God did last year.  I’m overwhelmed with a sense of awe and gratitude as I think about this past year.  Here are a few highlights of 2008:

*Basta LoveLife: Without question, the highlight of 2008 was the release of my book.  I signed the publishing contract right before last year’s Christmas vacation.  It was in stores within a few months.  It has now sold over 1,000 copies—not a big deal for big name authors, but it’s a huge deal for me.  I hope it continues to bless those who read it.

*Radio Interviews: The Lord blessed me with some awesome radio interviews last year.  LJ invited to join them for their Valentine’s Day special over at DZAS.  Jordan and I had fun over at Against the Flow, and I was on air with the awesome folks at The Edge Radio. Thanks to all who invited me for interviews!  I hope to do more interviews this year–maybe even some “secular” shows/stations.

*True Love Waits: I’m not sure how many students attended one of our TLW seminars in ’08 (I usually keep statistics by school year).   It’s always a great honor to spread the message of purity.

*People: I met some fascinating new people in 2008–the Blackabys and the President to name a few.

*Preaching: I’ve probably preached more this past year than any previous year of ministry. Blessings to those who managed to stay awake during my sermons.  One of these days I’ll finish with 1st Timothy—promise.

*Radio Show: Erwin and I signed a six month contract for our own radio show.  We pray more stations will broadcast it this year.

*I tried different methods for advertising this blog.  Some worked better than others.  It definitely made a difference in terms of traffic, and I should pass the 300,000 hit mark some time this year.
