fridays-listEvery Friday I post a short list of the things I’m reading, listening to, loving and wrestling with:

Here’s what I’m reading right now:

4 Ways to Get Better at Deferred Gratification by Michael Hyatt. I don’t know about you, but I’m very determined and can hold out for delayed gratification. But I can always get better. And this article will help.

5 Signs Your Passion Level In Leadership Is White Hot by Carey Nieuwhof. This includes some great insights that are a kind of self-test.

Designed to Lead: The Church and Leadership Development by Eric Geiger and Kevin Peck. Just finished re-reading this one. So good and very helpful. If you are involved in leadership development, this is a must read.

Here’s what I’m listening to:

Jocko Willink—The Discipline Advantage on the EntreLeadership Podcast. If you’ve ever heard Jocko Willink, you know this will be a good conversation. If not…you need to hear this one.

Allyson Evans On Life Church’s Approach To Reaching Families, Unbelievable Growth, Hard Decisions And Leveling The Next Gen Playing Field on the Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast. Very interesting!

Find Your Why: A Practical Guide for Discovering Purpose for You and Your Team by Simon Sinek, David Mead and Peter Docker. This takes Sinek’s teaching in his first book and helps with application. Very powerful stuff!

Quotes I’m wrestling with:

“If every member of a team doesn’t grow together, they will grow apart.” Simon Sinek

My own post I hope you’re reading:


I revise this list every 18 months or so. If you’re involved in small group ministry you need to stay up to date on what is available and happening in this space.
