Life Update :: Engagement & Other Things

So I don’t really have weekly posts that give you all updates on my personal life (like my friends Tim & Justin). I’ve tried to do them in the past, but I always just fall off with consistency. But I do have a life (I know…hard to believe) and I want to give you all a quick update.

  • Probably the biggest and most exciting change in my life recently is that I am now engaged to be married to my best friend! It’s such an awesome feeling to know that I’m going to be spending the rest of my life with my best friend, Amy Wynne. Thankfully she said yes :) Did I mention she is Australian…that’s right, never would I have imagined that the girl of my dreams was going to be Australian, but God brought us together in such an awesome way. Hit me up, and I’ll tell you the story someday.

  • Last week I was brought back to my days of college when I would stay up until 3 AM on a regular basis. I stayed up until at least 2 AM for 3 consecutive nights this past week to complete a project, and it just reminded me that I’ve still got a bit of late night productivity in me. Coffee was my good friend last week.
  • My roommate and I have started our long lost podcast again. We started it back in 2006, and went strong for a couple years, then fell off. But we are back in action, and trying to record weekly episodes. The older episodes aren’t available anymore, but check out the new episodes. If you like to simply get an update on news, followed along with some funny commentary check it out. It’s in iTunes and we’re working on a website right now. Check out the JSquared Podcast.
  • I am giving a talk at an event in SoCal next month on Church Communications, along with my friends Tim Schraeder, Dawn Baldwin, Curtis Templeton and Drew Goodmanson. If you’re in the SoCal area and would like to come let me know and I’ll hook you up. It’s going to be a good time.
  • I’ve also started a new project that will hopefully serve as a resource for those in the church who are using social media as part of their communications. It’s called The Social Church and I’m still in the early stages, but let me know what you think.
  • O and I just discovered some great music you should check out by Gotye.

And I think that’s it.

What has been going on in your life recently? Hit me up on Twitter, and if you’re in the Chicago area, let’s get coffee.
