We Learn From Our Friends: Becky Murphy

Becky Murphy is a wonder. Every time I talk to her, I learn something valuable and am encouraged. Life is meant to be built around loving others well and Becky is giving the world a high five through her life. I am deeply grateful for her. Here are some ways she has blessed me in thought and action

Technology: Becky just shared her one year documented through video under 3 minutes today on her blog. How? The app, 1 second Everyday, allows users to construct a year long storyline of their life in short 1 second snips. Cool right?! If people are viglant to document, over the years they could have a look back at their decade. I am pumped to start using it. The possibilities are endless. 

You can download it for .99 cents through the App Store.

“This spellbinding app stitches second-long snippets from your life into a compelling, personal movie. With built in reminders, a simple editing tool, and a gorgeous design, 1 Second Everyday is everything you need to put together your own thought-provoking narrative.” - Apple

Sport:  Becky tweeted at the beginning of the month. "I wonder how much every mile run saves us in health care?" She is dead on. Small steps, done individually and collectively change the healthcare landscape. 

I have been making small steps with my bike riding. The big story of the year is challenging myself to the 10 day ride with Love Does. Becky has supported my efforts by hand lettering Bob Goff quotes to support the ride. Read her write up on her blog here

Cause: While it is not officially a "cause", her book, I'd Rather Be Short is an extension of her life and heart for this world. This fantstic manifesto celebrates the beauties in our life who happen to be short. I love that she was BRAVE and did something personal and encouraged others along the way.
