what's coming soon (and not so soon)
It’s been about 3 months since I started this little experiment + thank you for joining!
I wanted to give you an update on what’s going on, and what’s coming next!
Most of you attend Elevate Life and know of my dad and I’s relationship. I call myself his consigliere. I’m here to help him with whatever he needs my help with. I spend a lot of my time leading the staff at Elevate Life day to day, and I help him with his personal coaching and leadership business. Really, I help him and my mom with everything and anything they need. I was booking them an Uber at 2 AM last night. 😂
I also have my own “streams” of income as well. Like this blog, books I’m writing and doing some personal coaching of my own.
I try to spend as much time thinking, writing and speaking as possible. I feel that those are my best and highest uses. However, none of us get to stay in our best and highest use forever and always. Our best and highest uses are “get to’s.” They are things that we are privileged to do and operate in. We also have “have to’s.” My life, like your life is filled with have to’s. Have to’s aren’t bad things, they just aren’t get to’s!
My friend Steve Weatherford says this “amateurs make decisions based on their feelings, pro’s make decisions based on their commitments.” What does that mean? Sometimes what you need to do, should do, and have to do aren’t the same thing.
There are things that we should do. These are things that are good for us, but don’t seem necessary right now.
There are things we want to do. These are things that we like, but are not necessary.
There are things we need to do. These are non-negotiable. These are the commitments we have made that drive our decisions.
This is the balance you and I are always trying to live in. Shoulds, wants, needs.
Often times we will forsake our needs for our wants. We will also rarely get to our shoulds because the needs/wants feel like a whirlwind by themselves. For me, wolow is both a should and a want. I should write and I want to write. But I only have so much mind space based on my needs. I will always write, but sometimes my writing here will be infrequent based on what the needs of the given season I am in are.
What’s coming soon
31 Promises For Your Life
The image attached to this post is a preview of the cover of my dad’s new 31 day devotional coming out this fall! We’ll be talking about this soon at Elevate Life, but I have the privilege of helping my dad get some of his thoughts onto paper so that the world can experience them! I have been spending a lot of my time getting this book ready to come out.
The Way to Live 1.0.1
The print version of The Way to Live is coming this fall too! We are finishing up the typesetting, design and printing process. It looks like we will have our first printing ready for Christmas of this year. An audiobook will also be launching alongside the printed version. The print version of WTL is also available to paid subscribers of wolow.
Biblical Worldview Series
We have been in a Biblical Worldview series at Elevate Life throughout the month of August. This has taken up much of my study and writing time the past few months. It was exciting to do, it’ll also be exciting when it’s over! I’ll be spending some time over the next few weeks writing and expounding on that for the readers of wolow so that you can share with your friends. This will be my third book.
I will continue to also have regular free posts over the weeks as well. I’ll probably be a little more infrequent throughout the next couple months as all of this other stuff spins up.
What’s coming (not so) soon
Elephants in the Room
Last year, I wrote a book on CRT, sexuality, gender and Christianity. Some of you have asked when this book will be done. We are still in the editing process, so the printed version will be coming out sometime next year. As I feel good about the edits of that book, I’ll be posting the drafts of each chapter for paid subscribers starting in October.
Keith Craft Master Classes 🤫
We are working to get some of my dad’s greatest leadership teachings filmed and put down as master classes as a tool for those who want to develop their leadership. We have a roadmap built out and will be filming the first four this fall. No spoilers, but be on the lookout for these!
365 Day Devotional
I’m working with my dad on getting a 365 day devotional published by next year. I’m hoping we can have that launched by January 2023. I know he is too.
There’s a lot more too that I can’t share yet. Wanted to give you some updates on what all is coming soon and not so soon!
