#HeyEvan

#HeyEvan
What if we did a sort of Dear Abby new school with #HeyEvan. Just start it with #HeyEvan and end it with "Worried in Waukesha" or "Concerned in Quebec" or the like. Questions about God stuff, relationships, standing up for your faith, jobs, church and being a citizen.

Email me at evan@evannehring.com with #HeyEvan in the subject line and your question in the body of the email. Or you can Facebook message me (Evan Nehring) or tweet me or direct message me @EvanJayNehring. Use the #HeyEvan hashtag. 



Five great questions of life: Life * Love * Learning * Labor * Leadership

Life: What's My Spiritual Center?

#HeyEvan

By Evan Nehring

I wake up thinking. Maybe it's because I pray and read and write in the mornings. Connecting with God has a way of opening our creativity. Seems that even anticipating it does. Well, you can tell me if this idea has inspiration in it or not.

I've been blogging on this site for 14 months. People are getting the idea that I think about 18-20-somethings when I write. It's about the major decisions of young adulthood:

  • Life: What's My Spiritual Center?
  • Love: Who Will I Spend My Life With?
  • Learning: What's My Worldview?
  • Labor: How Will I Make a Living?
  • Leadership: What Difference Will I Make?

Yes, comments are always welcome, but what if I opened it up a little more? Comments are very public and you Google usually makes you identify yourself.

What if we did a sort of Dear Abby new school with #HeyEvan. You could keep it anonymous for the post, even if you're sending it from a recognized email, Facebook or Twitter account. Just start it with #HeyEvan and end it with "Worried in Waukesha" or "Concerned in Quebec" or the like. Questions about God stuff, relationships, standing up for your faith, jobs, church and being a citizen.

For my part, I'd make a fancy new #HeyEvan banner graphic and use the blog to reply publicly to your questions. Every questioner would remain anonymous. I promise. And then you get to see my response and any other commenters.

I would mainly expect questions from young adults (or almost young adults) and parents of young adults. It's very difficult to describe the compassion that I feel for this group. I'm right in the middle of this season as a parent and will be for many years yet. I love, love, love seeing young people honor the Father through their life decisions.

How to do it?

Email me at evan@evannehring.com with #HeyEvan in the subject line and your question in the body of the email. Or you can Facebook message me (Evan Nehring) or tweet me or direct message me @EvanJayNehring. Use the #HeyEvan hashtag. 

Comments Are Always Welcome...

What do you think? I wouldn't turn the whole blog into this, but it would be fun to have this sort of conversation maybe weekly or a couple times a month. Interested?
