When I was 19 years old I was told something that would change my life forever...


"Learn how to embrace the process." There are no overnight success stories. Leaders who don't learn to embrace God's process don't last. If you're going to "achieve" something significant for the kingdom of God then you must learn the art of "being" with God right now. That advice from a long-time mentor would change my perspective forever. It would guide me through every valley, mountaintop, transition, and "back side of the pasture" moment I would face in the years to come. This blog is about learning to embrace the leadership process.
