3 Thumbs Up! April 28, 2012

It’s time for the next installment of 3 Thumbs Up!  This is an opportunity for me to share 3 things that deserve a thumbs up.  So here goes for this week:

Thumbs Up No. 1:  Flipboard for iPad.  A friend at work showed me this application for the iPad yesterday.  Flipboard is a social magazine application for the iPad and iPhone that lets you set up a customized online browse pad to help you keep up on your interest areas and on your social media outlets.  Within a minute, I had the application loaded onto my iPad from the App Store, and I had it set up with my interest areas along with my Twitter and Facebook feed.  I love it!  It’s definitely worth checking out.  Oh yeah, it’s FREE!

Thumbs Up No. 2:  Catalyst Podcast.  This isn’t new to me, but it’s worth sharing.  On a weekly basis, Ken Coleman and Brad Lomenick host this leadership focused podcast that provides interviews and insights from today’s top leaders in the Christian community.  Past interviews have been with leaders like Francis Chan, Michael Hyatt, Bill Hybels, John Ortberg, Jim Collins, Andy Stanley, and Tony Dungy.  If you are a leader, I’d recommend checking out this valuable resource.  Click here to check it out.

Thumbs Up No. 3:  The Handwritten.  This is a creative blog by my friend, Michael D. Perkins.  Each week, Joe hand writes several posts that creatively express Michael’s take on a particular scripture passage.  I’m inspired, challenged, and motivated on a daily basis by what he brings to the table.  Check it out here.  Stop over and become part of his blogging community.

What new in your world that deserves a thumbs up?
