On Siren Magazine


I did an interview with Sarah Hubbell of Siren Magazine. There's some new content on it; stuff I haven't talked about or other sites haven't deigned to publish.  Enjoy! Read it here.

Good review! Looking forward to the new book. Sounds fun! And...Donald Miller is one of my inspirational authors as well.
I have an interesting perspective on prayer on my blog today. It was written by Lloyd Ogilvie. I think you might enjoy it.

Ladies:
(for your husband's dignity) yes, maybe it's kinda sorta ok to publicly say what sounds very much like that he was unable to please you on your honeymoon, but if you're going to do that, could you please remember to hint, even subtly, that he's maybe improved, even slightly, since then?

Mike: that was the editor's fault, I swear! I totally explained it.

Love the new book idea!

Wikkid Person said...

I thought perhaps that was so. I imagine you love your husband and wouldn't oops quite so egregiously. Did your husband have any comments on the interview? If it wasn't down to the editor's choices, I'd be all like " 'Weird,' huh? You can go sleep on the couch. For a year."
(I'm assuming the editor was female, so doesn't understand about men's issues/feelings and stuff.)

Women: men have actual, genuine feelings which are seldom helped by talking about them.

New book sounds great!

I love the article, and I'm stoked for your next book! Can't wait to read it, and hopefully find some way to get you back into the northeast for a talk. (My next option is to move out of the northeast to a more open-minded region.)

great interview. and your book was one of my top picks of 2010. can't wait to read more from you!

Wikkid Mike: actually Larry and I have joked about that first time so it's not news to him I said as much. How I said it to the editor, the tone isn't conveyed in the writing. Of course it was enjoyable, God designed it that way! But so much is built up, that when you finally do get to enjoy it without guilt, if it's not utterly mind blowing the first time you can get worried about it. the point was this: all this talk about "test driving" in that area before you commit to a relationship doesn't make sense to me. Sexual intimacy is a craft like anything else worthwhile. It takes time and commitment and love.

how bad is it that "hang out with non-Christians" is practically a revolutionary idea these days?
