Through illustration, insight and humor, Cuyler zeroes in on the fact that much of the time Jesus was trying to get people to “lighten up”!
How to Be Funny
Where do Cuyler's ideas for Inherit the Mirth® come from? How does inspiration strike? Can you learn to write comedy too? The answer to all three is "Yes!" Join Cuyler on a fun and enlightening exploration of the nature of creativity and comedy. Discover a step-by-step approach to take your own life experiences and turn them into jokes and funny observations! You can do comedy-- you just might not know it yet!
Jesus, iTunes and Thermodynamics
With over fifteen years of experience in youth ministry, Cuyler knows at least one thing: teenagers are heat-seeking missiles. They want to be where there’s passion and action and meaning. By and large, they are not finding many signs of life in the church. Why is that? What’s gone wrong? And how can today’s teens (and adults for that matter) rekindle the flames that gave such heat and excitement to the church in Acts? Cuyler’s got a few ideas, and you can be certain there will be plenty of laughs along the way.
Would You Date God?: Love, Relationships & Other Things That Drive Us Nuts
Through amusing personal stories and Biblical exploration, Cuyler leads a fun examination of the different ways that males and females communicate, and makes the case that romantic relationships are at their best when God is in the mix, and that in fact, God is the greatest romantic of all.
God Wants Risk-takers!
As the popular saying goes: If you want to walk on water, you've got to get out of the boat! Through personal stories, many of them laugh-out-loud funny, and an exploration of Bible characters who took a leap of faith, Cuyler leads you through a fun and challenging examination of what it takes to "gamble on God". Definitely a risk worth taking!
