• 6:34 PM TravisAgnew – 30 minutes before Town Hall for Hope. People were outside our doors waiting before 7:00. If you can’t come, I will be blogging some thoughts in real time to follow the event.
  • 6:47 PM TravisAgnew –
  • 6:56 PM TravisAgnew – I love Craig Groeschel. He’s the real deal.
  • 7:01 PM TravisAgnew – Sigh…it’s working…now it’s time for Dave to bring it.
  • 7:07 PM TravisAgnew – Even when the economy is in trouble, people who have lived wise financially are not stressed out.
  • 7:10 PM TravisAgnew – As a Christian, I had encountered a spirit of fear.
  • 7:10 PM TravisAgnew – Prayer: I talk to my Dad, and it doesn’t freak me out. The fear just left me at that moment and I haven’t been afraid since. Fear is not a fruit of the Spirit.
  • 7:13 PM TravisAgnew – I’m reading a different book than they are reading.
  • 7:17 PM TravisAgnew – I believe you can be sincere and still be wrong.
  • 7:19 PM TravisAgnew – Capitalism is the source of hope for America.
  • 7:19 PM TravisAgnew – We need a value system that cares about its customers.
  • 7:21 PM TravisAgnew – We shouldn’t bail you out. You’re freaking lame.
  • 7:22 PM TravisAgnew – The truth is you’re grownups, you don’t need a keeper or a caretaker, and this is how life works. It’s not fair. We’ve got to go back to some basics. We need to love people enough to allow them to fail.
  • 7:22 PM TravisAgnew – Failure if it is chasing you will lead you to excellence.
  • 7:23 PM TravisAgnew – If there’s no chance you can fail, you will never be at your best…Failure needs to be an option.
  • 7:23 PM TravisAgnew – Your raise is effective when you are.
  • 7:24 PM TravisAgnew – Success is merely a pile of failures you are standing on. -John Maxwell
  • 7:26 PM TravisAgnew – This word is now politically incorrect – the word is “no.” It will set you free.
  • 7:26 PM TravisAgnew – No, you can’t buy a house. You’re freaking broke.
  • 7:27 PM TravisAgnew – We need to go back to taking personal responsibility in this country.
  • 7:29 PM TravisAgnew – Take responsibility when you cause the mess. Learn your lessons and keep going.
  • 7:29 PM TravisAgnew – Work like it all depends on us, pray like it depends on God.
  • 7:30 PM TravisAgnew – I’m going to pray and hope that my life fixes itself. You can pray while you’re working.
  • 7:31 PM TravisAgnew – The diligent prospers.
  • 7:33 PM TravisAgnew –
  • 7:33 PM TravisAgnew – I hope this is this generation’s Great Depression. That generation learned and gleaned something from the pain.
  • 7:34 PM TravisAgnew – In the Depression, the stock market lost 90%; we’ve only lost 57%.
  • 7:39 PM TravisAgnew – The media is not reporting the good news. Hysteria sells.
  • 7:42 PM TravisAgnew – If you have money to invest in the stock market, it’s like you are at K-Mart and its the blue light special.
  • 7:46 PM TravisAgnew – I’ve got a friend who watches CNN and FOX news all day long, we’re going to have to put him into a rubber room.
  • 7:46 PM TravisAgnew – It is the best time to buy houses.
  • 7:47 PM TravisAgnew –
  • 7:48 PM TravisAgnew – Love it when God shows up and pays off thousand dollars of student loans!
  • 7:48 PM TravisAgnew – Don’t cry, girl. Dave gave you a huge compliment. I know you want to cry, but you are on national TV.
  • 7:50 PM TravisAgnew – Got to love, YouTube. Everyone is a star.
  • 7:51 PM TravisAgnew – I don’t do business with big banks because they possess no soul.
  • 7:55 PM TravisAgnew – I think gold is the Snuggie of investment (quote of the night).
  • 7:57 PM TravisAgnew –
  • 7:59 PM TravisAgnew – I get hate mail for telling people to cut up credit cards. Christian hate mail should be an oxymoron.
  • 7:59 PM TravisAgnew – Learn to think for yourself. We the people are the healing agent for this economy.
  • 8:00 PM TravisAgnew – Elsa has email?!
  • 8:01 PM TravisAgnew – The weak competitors have been driven out of the market.
  • 8:03 PM TravisAgnew – Ummm…Chick-fil.a…
  • 8:04 PM TravisAgnew – Heart stop…oh, Ramsey’s battery went out.
  • 8:06 PM TravisAgnew – Greenwood, Indiana. Ah, man.
  • 8:07 PM TravisAgnew – Good to know every church has sound issues.
  • 8:08 PM TravisAgnew – Probably find some government employee with his hand on the plug.
  • 8:08 PM TravisAgnew – Your most powerful wealth building tool is your income. Steady.
  • 8:09 PM TravisAgnew – My opinion is that unemployment is a symptom of the economy.
  • 8:11 PM TravisAgnew – We might be hiring, but it won’t be you, Eyore.
  • 8:12 PM TravisAgnew – For goodness sake, don’t wait for Washington to save you.
  • 8:13 PM TravisAgnew – I don’t have credit cards. I don’t play with snakes, they bite.
  • 8:14 PM TravisAgnew – I’m not a student of end times things. Those people kind of scare me.
  • 8:14 PM TravisAgnew – Those who plow should do so in hope.
  • 8:15 PM TravisAgnew – Three things to do if you are struggling with your hope:
  • 8:15 PM TravisAgnew – 1. Get up. Take action. Get moving. Even if it doesn’t make sense, at least you are doing something.
  • 8:17 PM TravisAgnew – If you wait for Congress to fix your life, you’re sunk. How good are they at anything? The president can’t fix your life – Republican or Democrat. Its not his job to fix your life even if he thinks it is.
  • 8:18 PM TravisAgnew – 2. Don’t participate in loser talk. If you hang out with losers, you know what you are going to be? A loser!
  • 8:19 PM TravisAgnew – Your income will be within 10% of your closest friends. Some of you are thinking, I need to get new friends.
  • 8:19 PM TravisAgnew – We don’t do missionary dating, you send him back to the pound.
  • 8:20 PM TravisAgnew – I get up every morning and read the Bible and the newspaper to see what both sides are doing. -Zig Ziglar
  • 8:21 PM TravisAgnew – Be careful who you listen to and hang out with.
  • 8:22 PM TravisAgnew – You know, the average millionaire can’t tell you who got thrown off the island.
  • 8:23 PM TravisAgnew – The leader of the organization was the one who served the most.
  • 8:24 PM TravisAgnew – They’re closed because they lost their Jonathan and they blamed it on the economy (that was strong).
  • 8:25 PM TravisAgnew – 3. Learn to give again.
  • 8:26 PM TravisAgnew – If you don’t have money, go serve the homeless. All of a sudden, you’ll get your eyes off your hopelessness.
  • 8:27 PM TravisAgnew – We talk about giving. Americans help people out. We still need to do better because we have so much.
  • 8:27 PM TravisAgnew – I think we, the people, if the church got its act together, I think we could give the government our business. We could take the country over.
  • 8:29 PM TravisAgnew – Hope doesn’t come from Washington. Hope comes from you and me. Hope comes from God.
  • 8:29 PM TravisAgnew – Place your hope in the hope-giving place. The ones there before the foundation of the world, in the nail-scarred hands of Jesus!
