Lean On Me

Lean On Me


Posted By on Oct 24, 2014 in Books | 0 comments

My friend Anne Marie Miller has a new book out. It’s called Lean On Me and it’s about something that’s important to me…forming intentional, vulnerable and consistent community. In the age of social media and revolving homes and jobs, a life-giving and truth-telling community can be hard to pin down. But I believe it’s worth the fight.  (The following is an excerpt from Anne’s book Lean on Me.) In late...

Jesus Is Better

This might be the worst book review ever…mostly because the book {Jesus is Better Than You Imagined} was such an impactful read that I’ve already passed it along to a friend. So no I won’t be sharing all the quotes I underlined {and there were a lot} or all the incredible endorsements {and there were a lot}, I’ll just tell you that I think you should read this book. I’ve been a Jonathan Merritt fan for...

Enjoy and be sure check out his new book, Let...

Some Of Those Books

You know when you stumble onto one of those books that you can’t put down, one of those books you read in one sitting, one of those books that before you finish you have already crafted a list, either mental or physical, of people you are going to share them with, one of those books that leaves you thinking for weeks, one of those books that you quote so much that you start to get on your own nerves. I’ve read two of those...

Why I Love Just Lead!

I LOVE Jenni’s heart and passion for cultivating women leaders.  I met Jenni Catron several years ago when I started attending Cross Point Church. Back in those days Pete Wilson was still welcoming everyone to the church with hand-written letters. My letter directed me to connect with the church’s executive director, Jenni Catron. And connect we did. Over black bean salads at Calypso Cafe and the idea that women should use...
