Reallocating Energies

I’ve decided to move my creative energies from daily blogging – a habit which began last July – toward a few more demanding projects that need my immediate attention.

I still plan on posting regularly, but the frequency will be determined by availability netted from progress made in other areas.

This daily-run, which has been the most consistent writing of my life, has been a tremendous benefit personally, helping me grow in my use of words and in articulating my thoughts. Likewise, I believe many of you, my faithful readers, have been encouraged in some way.

In staggering my posts, I hope to craft even better content, giving each piece the time it needs to be written. Likewise, I’m moving into some seasons of renewed productivity that will demand the best of my creative energies.

To name a few:

• Finishing and formatting The Berinfell Prophecies Book 3

• Pursuing 3 new possible restaurant openings

• Launching of Sprig Records studio and record company

• Recording Jennifer’s next full-length album

• Writing and producing for New Life’s first live worship album, as well as CHB’s next project

• Completion of book 1 of my new upcoming series, as well as development for books 2 and 3

I also plan on taking considerable time off in the next few months to enjoy summer in the 1000 Islands. This will include a lot of time sailing on the river with The Hopper Kids, and Jennifer and my first “kid-less vacation” in 8-years.

For those who faithfully read here, I’d appreciate your investment of prayer into everything listed above; your support and encouragement mean a great deal to me.

Here’s to seasons of rest, and renewed productivity.

The best is yet to come.

    Whew, your going to be busy!
    And don’t forget the how-to-self-publish ebook. :)

    Thank you so much for faithfully blogging every single day. I always look forward to new posts.

      You’re most welcome Gabe. Appreciate you. And thanks for the reminder.

  • Megan Jackson

    At first, I definitely thought, “Oh no! You can’t do that Christopher!!” The past month or so, I have become a very dedicated reader, and look for your posts every single morning. However, I have now seen your plans, and your reasoning for not writing as often… I will still absolutely look forward to your posts, but I’m very excited for you! Books are great! Restaurants are AMAZING (hope they are around here!). Sprig Records makes me excited! CD’s from Jenny, CHB, and New Life Worship, woot woot!! Time with H1, H2, H3, H4, HWife (I guess could be Hopper Wife, or Hot Wife, your choice), and the 1000 Islands = Well deserved!! Lastly, a kidless vacation is even more deserved!! God Bless you on all of these endeavors, lucky me, I am a dedicated reader who will miss your posts, but I still get to see you around. I will be praying for you often! Love you!

    The daily run of posting on your blog has been an inspiration, CKH. Indeed, the best IS yet to come. Enjoy the days ahead!

      Thanks Christian – you’re an inspiration too. Can’t wait to hear what’s on your heart for next week at New Life.

  • Billy Jepma

    That’s quite a list! Haha! And I’m excited for the finished product of all them them. Will definitely be praying you and your family CH. Maybe this time off means we can take you wake-boarding again? ;)
