I would highly recommend Andy Stanley’s How To Be Rich: It’s Not What You Have, It’s What You Do With What You Have.
Stanley suggests, “The more a person possesses, the greater his potential to acquire a distorted sense of reality and the greater the odds that he will lose his sense of balance… Specifically, Paul writes, money does two things to people: It makes us arrogant, and over time it becomes our primary source of hope, leaving us with the impression that we are self-sufficient” (424).
Our teaching team is planning a stewardship series loosely based on this book for November of this year at Blue Bridge Church.
Check the book out and let me know what you think.
One of my goals is to read at least one biography on each and every U.S. President. As mentioned before, I began this journey back in 2003 when I stumbled upon the fine works of David McCullough.
I took another step towards completing this task by reading H.W. Brands’ The Man Who Saved the Union: Ulysses Grant in War and Peace. A fine and complete work.

Shonda Rhimes, the titan behind Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder, is responsible for some 70 hours of television per season, and she loves to work. “When I am hard at work, when I am deep in it, there is no other feeling,” she says.

In this moving talk, join Rhimes on a journey through her “year of yes” and find out how she got her hum back.
