Is your life characterized by fear and angst or peace, rest, and contentment? Dr. Troy Spurrill says that if we follow what Solomon says in Proverbs 19:23, we can lead that life of peace, rest, and contentment. “Furthermore, fear of the Lord leads you to life, peace, rest, and contentment.” Proverbs 19:23“In this Bible verse the word lead is key. It’s not just a single event most of the time. There is a process. I want people to understand how hard it is to walk a walk of fearing the Lord.
You may have been infected with a virus and not even realize it. The virus is made up of dangerous ideas—ideas that don’t reflect Jesus and biblical living and it’s spreading across America. Summit Ministries President Dr. Jeff Myers warns us about the battle for ideas in culture and offers strategies to strengthen our faith. He reflects on a time in his life when he first discovered that a virus was infecting his mind and heart.
“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21Proverbs tells us that our tongue is a powerful tool – this is no less true when it comes to the words we email, text, post or comment on social media. Dr. Emerson Eggrichs invites us to pause and consider what we say, and how we say it, to avoid unnecessary conflict and effectively communicate with one another in truth and love.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
