Wolfe Rules (Gibb's Style Rules)


  1. NO HIDING
  2. Plans Fail. Live by Principles.
  3. When in doubt: Shift into Low Slow
  4. When Overwhelmed: Take the next indicated step.
  5. What you compromise to keep, you will eventually lose… keep first things first.
  6. Do what’s right because it’s right, do it right, and do it right away.
  7. Prayer: Is to hear God’s Agenda not to bring Him yours. 
  8. Answers: Ask Him what He’s doing, and participate. Don’t tell Him what you want to see happen.
  9. Beliefs about God: Don’t seek out verses, seek out themes and patterns in the whole Bible. Ask Him to reveal His Story to you, and your part in it.


Religion is...

  • Religion is man's attempt to reach God. Jesus is God's attempt to reach man. Unkown

LIFE Mission Statement:

I am called to lead the Distressed, In-Debt, and Discontent (1), into the LIFE Jesus promised (2), by showing them how to meditate on God's Words/Thoughts (renew the mind) (3), training them to Get Life through an active relationship with God (spirit) and retraining the brokenness we were all born with (will/mind/soul) (4), and by telling stories that inspire (heart/emotions).

Stories break down the barriers between heart and mind, helping both become stronger (5 & 6). Stories can pull down strongholds of that separate our heart from God's!

We are all here on this earth at exactly the time we were meant to be, and the purpose of our life is to seek, grope for, and find God (7); come with me and we'll do LIFE together!

LIFE Verses from the Bible:

  • David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullam. When his brothers and his father’s household heard about it, they went down to him there. All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their commander. About four hundred men were with him. 1 Samuel 22 | NIV
  • This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8 | English Standard Version
  • The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have LIFE, and may have it abundantly. John 10:10 | NET Bible
  • 26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; Acts 17:26-27 | NKJV
  • And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2 NKJV
  • ...Not by works of righteousness which we did ourselves, but in the measure of his mercy, he gave us salvation, through the washing of the new birth and the giving of new life in the Holy Spirit... Titus 3:4-5, The Bible In Basic English

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

FINAL PAPER | The Storiented Bible | The Greatest Story Ever Told

The Storiented Bible The Greatest Story Ever Told
FINAL PAPER 

Darrell Wolfe 
BIBL-1300 Introduction to the Bible 
Spring 2019, Online Session 1 
February 27, 2019

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
