Happy Monday from Katie, Stu’s Assistant. I hope you joined us yesterday as Stu continued our series, Crashproof Your Life, with a talk called Thank You. I had trouble narrowing down quotes today because there were SO many nuggets of truth and application points. Here are a few of my favorites:

1. Will you save a seat for somebody this week?
2. Just one bad decision today can crash your tomorrow!
3. Two simple little words – Thank You – may be the key to unlocking God’s blessings in your life in 2016.
4. Thank You reminds you where you’ve come from and how you got here.
5. Blessings can either turn into pride or praise.
6. You hold back on gratitude because of pride and nothing separates you quicker from God and from others than pride.
7. I believe the key to 2016 really is two simple words: Thank You. And if you fail to use those words, you’re going to miss out on all sorts of blessings.
8. If you want to overcome scarcity and fear, be grateful and you’ll find joy.
9. If you’ve got a past due bill of gratitude, it’s time to pay up so you can experience the blessings of 2016!
10. Thank You is how you crashproof your life.

Don’t forget Stu’s challenge to start and end the day with a THANK YOU!

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Stu’s talk, “Follow The Star”:

1. Christmas Eve is going to be incredible…I can promise you this: I’m going to give your guests the best, brightest, most entertaining, most compelling, and perhaps more importantly than any of that, the clearest opportunity to make Jesus the Lord of their life this Christmas.
2. What I hope and pray for you today is that the star will do for you what it did so long ago on that first Christmas…and that is, it will lead you to Jesus so you can worship Him.
3. The Star Could Only Be Seen By Those Who Were Looking For It.
4. And if you have the 3 Magi hanging out at the nativity beside baby Jesus in the barn standing beside the shepherds, you gotta go home and rearrange it!
5. Here’s the application for you this Christmas – don’t be so close, so familiar, that you miss Jesus this Christmas.
6. The star should be a reminder to you and to me that Jesus is not hidden and He is not hard to find, but you do have to look for Him in this season.
7. Darkness Makes The Star Shine Brighter.
8. Jesus is the star that lights up the darkness of your life this Christmas!
9. The King Is Worthy Of Your Worship.
10. I’m telling you today no matter how crazy things seem this season, no matter how crazy they seem in your life and in our world, Christ was born 2,000 years ago and He is the King of Kings and He rules and reigns supreme and He alone is worthy of your worship!

Happy Monday from Katie, Stu’s Assistant. Yesterday, we continued our Countdown to Christmas with pt. 2, “What’s At Your Table?” Here are a few of my favorite quotes:

1. I can guarantee you that beginning on that first Christmas and continuing every Christmas since then, there has always been a seat reserved at the Christmas table for Unmet Expectations.
2. When unmet expectations show up at your Christmas table, it is an invitation for the second guest to arrive and that is Unexpected Responses.
3. Unmet expectations are an invitation for unexpected responses.
4. Instead of responding in anger, what if you responded with love?
5. The Bible says she treasured all these things. She treasured it all. That means she treasured even the things that didn’t go as expected.
6. Maybe the detour away from the way I had things planned is actually the road that will lead me closer to way God had things planned.
7. She said: “So I just figured my power steering went out so that three kids in Africa could be rescued from poverty!”
8. An unexpected response is always preceded by a decisive submission to God.
9. It begins for us this season with a simple prayer that goes something like this: “God I’m available for what you want to do this Christmas.”
10. Unmet expectations will come to the table but you’ll have an unexpected response and when you do, the third seat at your Christmas table will be Undeniable Joy!
