Places to go… people to meet…

I’ve heard it said that “you will be the same person you are today one year from now except for:

The Places you go

The People you meet and

The Books you read.”

Know something?  It’s true.  Here’s what a year’s done in my life.


Places you go:

Costa Rica—there I learned to let go of something holding me back.  On the beach in Costa Rica I learned what it meant to truly trust the Lord.

Moving out—one of the biggest transitions of my life (up to this point).

Changing campuses…in a year I’ve gone from the South Oklahoma City campus to the Northwest Oklahoma City campus of  The change exposed me to many people…


People you meet:

My best friend—I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for your influence.  Thank you for teaching me to be myself.

My direct boss —you’ve taught me more than I realize!  Thank you for teaching me how to dream big!

My other boss —I wouldn’t be the leader I am today if it wasn’t for the risk you took with me and the way you’ve developed me.  Thank you for teaching me to use my head!


Books you read:

The Journey of Desire—words can’t describe what this book means to me.  (I plan to share a series of posts very soon!)

Good to Great—this book has forever changed the way I do ministry. 

The Slumber of Christianity—this book awoke me to the truth: earth is not our home.  I long for heaven after reading it. 

Psalms 18 in the Message—read it today!

 What about you?  Think back on your year… are you the same person?  How have the places you’ve gone, the people you’ve met and the books you’ve read, changed you?
