DUZIE in Smoky Mountains 4-16

We sat in our car, alongside the road in Cades Cove, watching in amazement as a large mama bear strolled towards our vehicle.  Behind her tumbled two, year-old cubs playing in the spring foliage.  We sat in silence as she came within 8 feet.  She stopped next to a tree right outside our drivers’ front window and ate leaves.  It was like God was saying, LOOK WHAT I MADE”.

For ten days in the Great Smoky Mountains (based in Gatlinburg, TN), we interacted with God’s awesome creativity, along mountain hikes and under 100-foot water falls, near steep cliffs and in deep caves, on mountain peeks and above rigorous trails on horse back and in quiet hammocks strung over a bubbling stream.  It was just what we needed for our “DUZE Life Break”.

We needed our batteries charged!  Through hours of trail talks, at the bottom of watterfalls, at poolside dream sessions and prayer times, and inspirational books and podcasts, we reconnected to each other, to God and “LIFE”.  In these days, God renewed our vision for “SPINgeneration”.  This vision is to Multiply our NEXT GENERATION Impact around the world, as we specifically INVEST in the NEX GEN Influencers: Students, Youth Workers, Parents, Teachers and Pastors.  We have even begun to call these people the “SPINNERS”, for they actively turn this generation by engaging young people through their daily Jesus journey.

Please pray for us as we better equip ourselves to lead the SPINgeneration movement in this next season:

  • We have begun an intensive course called Mastering the Craft of Creativity with Bob Stromberg to help us LEAD through INNOVATION.
  • We have joined the Platform University with Michael Hyatt to help us successfully launch weekly SPINgeneration resource for “SPINNERS” to CONNECT through a SUPPORT COMMUNITY.
  • We are pursuing a Life Coaching Certificate and Life Coaching Trainers Certificate to better enable us to MULTIPLY the IMPACT on this generation around the globe.

Why you may ask?  Because when we see this generation and all of it’s potential, it is like God is saying, LOOK WHAT I MADE”.  We just want to help them connect to this awesome God!

Thank You for your prayers and participation in what God is doing through us as we SPIN the Next Generation to Jesus in so many various ways through so many various people!

Standing Strong and Creating Hope,

Dan & Suzie Potter … known all around the world as DUZIE
