This week on WELSTech we return to this season’s productivity book discussion and consider the merits of setting our alarms a bit earlier. We also hear the story behind a new outreach-focused video short, learn about a major update of the WELS Mobile app, discover a new platform for ebooks and get motivated by the three greatest words ever spoken.
Wake Up! – Part 4 of What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done by Matt Perman introduces ideas for blocking out your daily schedule for focused time on tasks and projects. Martin shares his new (early) morning schedule inspired by Matt’s suggestions in this section.
We’re excited to share Ben Champion’s Blessed video short. Ben is a member of Beautiful Savior in Marietta, GA. He tells us that this zero budget film is the first of what he hopes will be a series of outreach focused messages. Consider sharing it and perhaps making your own video short. Find the video on the WELSTech’s Presentation/Teaching playlist on YouTube.
