Subaru’s Next Commercial?

Dear Subaru,

My Forester rocks in the snow. Here’s proof (and possibly an idea for your next commercial…although the dog commercials are pretty awesome!).

Men’s Conferences – A Little Weird If You’re An Outsider…

February 20, 2010

Guys hugging each other, patting each other on the back, crying and talking about stuff like love (ewww). If you’re an outsider who just happened to stumble upon the 200+ guys at the conference I’m attending this weekend in Estes Park, Colorado, you might wonder what the heck is going on. Quite honestly, you might think these guys are a bunch of pansies. Trust me, I’m not one for getting all gushy and huggy. I like a nice safe distance when it comes to chatting with guys. I’ll give the high-five, the  quick  hello-I-haven’t-seen-you-in-a-while-how-have-things-been hug…and the ever-safe and ultra-suave head nod, but everything else is pretty much off the table.

The conference I’ve been attending this week at the YMCA of the Rockies has been good. It’s nice to get away and spend some time being challenged to reflect on what’s important. It’s especially comforting to come back to a place that has significant meaning for me (the YMCA that is) – it’s here at the age of 18 that I first spread my wings, met my wife and eventually proposed to my wife. This place is beautiful and it always gets me in a reflective mood.

In the first session at this conference we were challenged to take back our manhood. Sounds weird huh? Christians in general can be a pretty weird bunch to hang around. We talk about stuff like not being on computers, taking back our “maleness,” and trying to get our wives  to submit. We also talk about being better fathers, being intentional with our wives and overall just making better decisions. Christians can be a weird bunch if you’re an outsider…no doubt. Yet, true believers (older and more mature ones especially) are really some great people to know and engage with. Especially the ones that know when to keep their mouths shut…but that’s for another blog on another day.

Heading Back to Poland

February 5, 2010

Last year I traveled to Poland and Germany with the Athletes in Action Men’s Basketball team as the team photographer and blogger. It was my first mission trip in a while and it turned out to be the perfect combination of stepping out in faith and doing things I love.

While the team was able to share their faith with the crowds and with players in the locker rooms, I was able to take the message of God’s love and plan for redemption to hundreds of the team’s fans, parents, friends and coaches through the team blog.

I am excited to head back to Poland again this summer to partner with Athletes in Action by blogging, taking pictures and this year capturing video (and possibly stream the games live on the web). I’m eager to help the team and also equally excited to support AIA staffers in Europe by creating videos for them that will allow them to update their ministry partners on their efforts and the relationships they have


Would you prayerfully consider supporting me financially on this trip?

I need to raise $2,000 by April 29thth. If you’d be interested in supporting me financially please email me at chrissigfrids@gmail.com. Your gift is tax deductible.


I will begin blogging about the tour in the next couple weeks. In the meantime, you can read up on last year’s blog here. Look for updates from me on my website, blog and facebook page

Thanks in advance for your prayers & support!
