What on earth is a Culture Rebel??

Well, here we are! The first day of an exciting new journey!  Thanks for being a part of this special launch day of the Culture Rebel blog!  I hope you’ll stick around for the whole journey!   There’s a lot of ground to cover and some amazing people to meet.   “Culture Rebel”….Interesting term isn’t it?  I’d love to hear what your first impression of the term was as a comment! (remember, everyone who comments on the blog today will be entered to win the amazing book; Grumble Hallelujah by Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneria) here’s the link to her book on amazon: http://www.amazon.ca/Grumble-Hallelujah-Learning-Love-Your/dp/1414338015/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1318858391&sr=1-1   For me, I first discovered this term when reading the book; “The Missional Mom” by Helen Lee.  In this book is a chapter called; “The Missional Mom is a Culture-Rebel”.  Her book really impacted my life so I found myself reflecting on the depth of her words for months after reading.  I completely forgot about this term “Culture-Rebel” until after somewhere in my sub-conscious I pulled the term out, fell in love with it and determined to have it be the name of my book series.  When I remember where the inspiration had come from I was thankful she gave me a big “go for it”!   Everywhere we turn, messages are being preached to us through TV, billboards, magazines, newspapers, music, movies, school classrooms, offices, radio,...

I found myself in a dark place after experiencing a series of losses; loss of ministry position, loss of my father to cancer and then my grandmother three months later.  Loss of a business I had birthed from the ground up.  Loss of friendships I thought were loyal.   Moving from a city I loved to a city I could only tolerate.  Loss of all that was comfortable and known to me.   Some of these I lost because life just brings loss; case closed.   But much of what I lost was because I was stubborn and determined to succeed, to live on the edge, to dream and to live for my own ambition.  I became known for being a rebel; but I was a rebel without His cause in my heart.  I was building my kingdom. Through the brokenness of my kingdom crashing down on me, I had no where else to look other than up at the One who I felt had abandoned me.  To the One I thought was so disappointed in me that He left me out...
