Since then, I’ve decided to join the effort.  Check it out…

So, here’s what I’m asking you to do:

1. Join me in this challenge.  How?  Read on…
2. Meet Jason and get more info about the project and how you can be a part.
3. Here are the six causes that we’re supporting through this effort.
4. Pick a cause and use the donation link on the ‘Causes’ page to donate $1 per pound that I lose. Check back for a weigh-in every Monday.  You can make donations each week as I weigh-in or wait till the end and make one sum donation all at once.
5. Let Jason know you’re on board with the challenge.
6. Encourage me by leaving a comment below and letting me know that you’re helping in this effort.

I’m overweight and have been for a while. The weight needs to come off and Jason’s project is a great incentive to lose weight and help make a difference in people’s lives.  BONUS!

If you haven’t yet, start reading Jason’s blog (click here). He’s a super guy and a really talented writer.

Stick around for the tail end of the video when […]

Delilah (I Shaved My Head!)

Posted on August 27, 2009 by Pastor Derick in Family Life, Music, Pop Culture

I — Shawn — shaved my head tonight.  It wasn’t on purpose; I thought my electric shaver was on the same setting I had the last time I used it, but it wasn’t and it was far too close.  I was planning on trimming up so I could do the faux hawk again.  The top […]

I — Shawn — shaved my head tonight.  It wasn’t on purpose; I thought my electric shaver was on the same setting I had the last time I used it, but it wasn’t and it was far too close.  I was planning on trimming up so I could do the faux hawk again.  The top looked too dark in contrast to the shaved bottom so I just took it all off.  It’s been a long time since I was sheared.

So, anyhow, when I saw this video posted over at @SaraEden‘s blog, it made me laugh out loud…

The song is performed by comedic guru, Tim Hawkins.
