Each Friday I offer up at least 4 recommended reads, listens, learnings, gadgets or reviews. These are not necessarily faith-based or church-related but have encouraged me in some way. I trust that they might do the same for you!
- A Really Good Read: Play the Man: Becoming the Man God Created You to Be by Mark Batterson Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men. It’s into this “no man’s land” that New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson declares his mantra for manhood: play the man.
- A Good Read for Thinkers: Here’s How to Build a New Career as a Thought Leader According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the term “thought leader” originated in the late 19th century. In the last decade or so, it’s experienced a bit of a revival – especially in the business world.
- A Place for Comfort Food: Praise the Lard BBQ I might be late to this party, but this is solid comfort food. The burnt ends and the carrot souffle is just too stinking good! Tired of the tasteless, dry meat that passes for BBQ in GA? They don’t hide the quality of their cooking with sauce, the meat’s the thing! Enjoy the sauce of your choice with the meat.
- A Powerful You Tube Video from Erwin Mcmanus: This guy is controversial and brash, and creative, and genuine. In his chat with his publishing team, he reveals a powerful lesson on life and death.
And a Quote that I am Pondering from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – “We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”
