One day I got a phone call.  It was from someone who called herself “The Devotional Diva” (real name Renee Johnson).  Having worked with actual divas before, I assumed this one would have similar characteristics – y’know – the narcisstic, green M&M-demanding, bottled-water type.  Boy (and girl), was I wrong.

Renee introduced me to a new idea she had.  With heartfelt enthusiasm that bubbled over like…er, something that bubbles over…Renee told me about her idea called “Throw Mountains.”  She described it as a “pro-church speaking tour for 20- and 30-somethings and the people that love them.”  She mentioned the other authors who were part of the tour: Sarah Cunningham, Shawn Wood, and Kary Oberbrunner – in other words, actual published, well-known folks that put my littl foary into the publishing world to shame.  Nonetheless, I was invited.  Did I want in?

It’s hard to say no to Renee the Devotional Diva.  Not because she is Mariah-like demanding but because her enthusiasm is as contagious as your toddler’s head cold.  I jumped on board with a big smile on my face.

I say all of that because today is the official launch date for ThrowMountains and I want YOU to take a look at what we’re up to.  Then I want you to help get the word out as much as possible by RT’ing till the cows come home (i.e., re-tweeting until the bovines return from their grazing), by “LIKE”-ing us on Facebook and by talking to your college/young adult team about bringing us out to hang with you.

You’ll be hearing a lot more about his in the coming days, but for now, take a minute to click on our new site, watch the short videos, and daydream about how we could all ThrowMountains together!
