Kem Meyer – kemmeyer.com, gccwired.com
Kem is a recovering corporate spin doctor who used to think church was for out-of-touch people who just needed to “get a life.” Now? She believes the local church is the hope of the world — it just needs some help. As Communications Director at Granger Community Church, Kem’s job is to help find ways to eliminate information obesity and simplify complexity. That may include weighing in on a series package, a web interface or back office systems. It all counts, because—at the end of the day—everything communicates.
Her book, Less Clutter. Less Noise. (now in its fifth printing) provides simple insights for the not-so-simple art of communication to help churches, businesses and not-for-profits find ways to get the word out and, simply, do better. You can find her blogging at KemMeyer.com.

Kem Meyer’s – Four reasons why it is ok to pass notes in church…
THEY SAID IT
“It took a real dark, hostile turn, certainly, as I saw it. It became very hostile toward Christianity, to the point that many students did walk out, including some of my students. They felt that they were attacked … a very pointed, direct attack on one particular group of students. It’s amazing that we go to an anti-bullying speech and one group of students is picked on in particular, with harsh, profane language.” – Rick Tuttle, a teacher at Sutter Union High School in Southern California commenting on Dan Savage’s derogatory comments toward Christians at a anti-bullying event sponsored by Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association.
“When you put everything on Facebook, you have to realize there are consequences for your actions. I decided to do something I know would totally impact her and then next time she’d think, I don’t want my face all over Facebook again with a red “X” over my mouth.” – Denise Abbott, the mother of 13 year old Ava Abbott, who took over her daughter’s Facebook account and put a red “X” over her mouth and accompanied with the following words “”I do not know how to keep my mouth shut. I am no longer allowed on Facebook or my phone. Please ask why. My mom says I have to answer everyone that asks.”
