“Blackstone’s Byron Wien Discusses Lessons Learned In His First 80 Years” This is a good and thoughtful article. (I read a summary somewhere but can’t remember where this was cited.)
I have been listening to Doris Kearns Goodwin’s The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism. A great book! I loved reading this book by way of audio books. This is the first book by Goodwin that I have listened to as an audio book. It probably won’t be the last.
Every morning I read a few pages from Mark Lanier’s new book Psalms for Daily Living: Daily Prayers, Wisdom, and Guidance. I really like what he does in this book. Each reading is short (one page). Often, however, there are some real gems on these pages.
Recently I read Brian Harris’ The Big Picture. Building Blocks of a Christian World View. This is a very fine book which made me think. He is a good writer and is capable of communicating complicate difficult material in a manner that is user-friendly.
I recently began reading Dr. Harold Shanks new book GodWorks. This is an excellent and encouraging book!
This is a very good piece by Mel Robbins, “Take Control of Your Day.” Mel advises against starting the day by checking e-mail or looking at texts. Rather, she encourages the reader to start with one’s own priorities.
