At the start of 2016 I had a great plan to read more books than I have before in one year. It is true leaders are readers. However, being a bi-vocational pastor it is tough to find long blocks of time read and I have a bad habit of reading more than one book at […]

The Early to Rise Experience – A Book Review

I have never been a morning person. I have never even been close to being a morning person.  I could sleep ten hours and still getting up would be a pain. However, I need to get up early. I need the discipline and I need the quiet early hours to study God’s Word, to pray […]

Praying with Paul – A Book Review

Prayer is one of the most powerful spiritual disciplines we can practice. It is hard to imagine that we serve a holy and righteous God who not only allows us to pray but actually calls us to pray.

Another Year of Great Reads – What I read in 2014

I have a simple goal to read just 20 books each year. I know there are many who read a lot more than that but 20 is the right number for me. In 2014 I barely completed that goal by reading 21. It was a busy year.   Please note that the lack of comments […]
