On my unsolicited book recommendations.

The glory of God…

is man fully alive.

Everywhere we look, we see people who live within the confines of safe, comfortable boundaries. Don’t we? Regular, ordinary humans go about their days, maintaining a safe distance from risks and challenges. We watch them perform routines, stay within schedule, and repeat daily on a constant loop.

And then we see people who live. You know that person. If he posts a photo of his most recent skydive or scuba dive, you’re not surprised. He constantly is pursuing a new endeavor or honing a new skill. He presses against the boundaries, unaware that restraints even exist. He lives, to the fullest of his potential.

Maybe you’ve set out to be that guy several times already, but you always look around and realize that you’ve settled back into your typical life again.

Can I just be a librarian for a second? When I worked at my school’s library, I loved to make recommendations to patrons for other books that might supplement what they were researching or reading about. I’m going to do that to you, but I’m not going to write a whole Amazon review for you. I believe that each of us wants to live life to the fullest. Some of us simply need a little more inspiration to do so. So, just take my word for it: Read these books. I believe that you’ll be inspired to go out and make a difference around you – regardless of whatever limitations you’ve set for yourself.

Love Does by Bob Goff

Fully Alive by Ken Davis

I hope that if you read these books, you are blessed and inspired. They have surely blessed and inspired me. Thanks for listening!
