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:
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
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!
