Notes from Allume 2012

Speaker creator of Veggie Tales
Phil Vischer

Funny - I didn't write much because I took notes on my phone; and it looked like much more then is evidenced here! This speech impacted me more then any other of the entire event.  I listened with stunned amazement as he detailed his history with creating Veggie Tales, losing the entire company in a lawsuit and finding God's will for his life.
"God can't steer a parked car.
When God gives you a dream, and then takes it away, he may be trying to see what's more important to you. The dream or Him?
Why would God want us to let go of our dreams? Because it might be a god to you.
Jelly Fish Labs - must move with the current. His current will carry me exactly to where I want to be.
What are your dreams? Can you lay them on the alter and walk away?
Tonight's dinner sponsored by What's In The Bible."
What's In The Bible is Phil's new company.  It's a really fun collection of stories's that show kids how to enjoy the Bible and I'm really looking forward to sharing these with my kids.
