I think this may be one of the coolest websites to come across my internet. My friend Roxy is one of the top dawgs at GIVR and rightly so. She’s a giver. She’s smart and innovative and I think it says something pretty massive about a person’s character when they spend their smarts on encouraging others to be generous.

The GIVR website isn’t massively difficult to understand. They aren’t asking for money. They aren’t asking for you to sell something for them. They are just asking you, and me, to be nice. To give. To live generously.

To quote the website:

We believe that change starts with our generation. We pledge to take action and live generously by:

* Giving more this year than I gave last year

* Finding new ways to give and help others

* Encouraging others to give through my actions and attitude

Cool, right? All they are saying is BE NICE and LIVE GENEROUSLY. So, enjoy playing around the site and sign up to be a GIVR.

Websites like this, movements that are started by smart people, these are the kinds of things that make me look forward to the future of the world.


It’s only right if I ask you to give I also give you permission to take.

And by “take” I probably more mean “purchase.”

It’s Tuesday. New records come out on Tuesday. And this week, I think you’ll enjoy this one.

I have, for the last two days, had Bebo Norman’s new album Ocean on major repeat. Like, totes maj repeat.

On the porch. In the car. When I run. When I work.

I’ve been a long time fan of Beebs, but I’m telling you. This album is so so beautiful and real. You won’t be mad at all that you own it. You’ll be glad. There are some strong worship-like songs, but there are also just some good ole singer-songwriter stuff. It’s a good ‘un.


You should be a TAKR and get this album.

That’s all I’ve got for today. Any other music you know of coming out today that we should all grab? Share away, my friend.

Y’all have a happy Tuesday.

    I was a fan of Bebo years ago, then found so many other artists I liked that he fell to the back…sorry Bebo.

    BUT, I heard one of the songs off of the new Ocean cd about a month ago and couldn’t stop listening. I’ve been listening to the album on FB ever since.

    Quality. Meaningful. Hits you in the gut even if you don’t want it to. Totally will be a TAKR for this one!

    I’m a huge Bebo fan and didn’t realize he had a new one coming out! My latest music obsession is Neulore:
