Each week (give or take one here and there) I share three things I like – It could be a book, a movie, a podcast, an album, a photo, an article, a restaurant, a food item, a beverage, or anything else I simply enjoy and think you might too. You can find a whole pile of things, especially books, I like and recommend HERE.
One of my favorite things to do when I travel for work is to attend whatever local sporting events are in season (and not boring). I also enjoy the occasional concert, baseball game, or hockey game here in Nashville too. The best way I’ve found to get tickets easily and not get ripped off is through Seatgeek. It pulls in all the tickets available for the game from all the secondary sellers and maps them in the arena/stadium with photos of the field view. It also color codes those offers by which ones are the best value compared to the current market. So instead of having to figure which seats are good and which are bad, which are way over prived and which aren’t and all that mess you just look for the green circles in the place you want to sit and then order. And they offer $20 off your first purchase too – just sign up through this link.
2. Spiritual Leadership by J.Oswald Sanders
This is one of my two favorite leadership books (I’ll share the other another time). It is not a “seven steps to ____” book but a book about the heart, character, and habits of a godly leader. It is immensely practical, but is not a book of practices. It’s a book about posture and attitude, and soul. I don’t resonate with lists of instructions or simplistic strategies, and this book offers neither. It paints a picture of what a leader of godly character is and does. It presents a model and a paradigm. Every Christian leader should read this whether they’re coaching high school football, pastoring a church, or leading a fortune 500 company. It is fantastic.
3. “You never Change” by Austin Stone Worship
I listen to no CCM and I don’t love most commercially successful “worship” music. The best church and worship I know of comes out various local churches where gifted musicians and writers are producing some fantastic music. Austin Stone Worship is one of these, and they consistently put out music that is is rich and deep and they are unbelievably gifted artists. This song has been a favorite of mine since it released. Turn it up and listen on repeat.
