Some friends were at my home this weekend, and one of them was perusing my bookshelves. “What’s your favorite book right now?”

So, here are a few of my favorite things – not only books, but also podcasts, organizations, and more.


If it’s on, I usually turn off the TV 30 minutes before going to bed and spend some time reading. (I highly recommend that practice!) When I’m on a plane (and most other times) I have a book with me. “Of the making of books there is no end.”

And here are some of my favorites that I’ve read recently.


I’m quite voracious in consuming podcasts. You can gain an education while you jog, drive, or clean the house. I listen to most or all of the episodes in each podcast listed here.

Other Organizations

Here are some organizations I connect with, believe in, and am happy to recommend.

  • Christian Healthcare Ministries– believers helping to share the costs of medical care for each other. (I am honored to serve as a  member of the Board of Directors (uncompensated).)
  • Compassion International– releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name. (I sponsor a precious child, Luz Esther.)
  • Charity Water– they do water – and charity – right. I love donating to this organization.
  • Catalyst Leader– equipping and empowering leaders who love the church. If you’re a church leader, check them out.
  • Covenant Eyes– amazing organization providing help for those who want to break free from pornography and related issues.
  • Be Broken– Helping adults find freedom from a life of sexual brokenness and addiction.
  • Ransomed Heart– a bunch of resources and events helping men and women regain the life of the heart as Jesus intended.
  • Emotionally Healthy Discipleship– helping believers move from shallow Christianity to depth in Christ. At least take the free personal assessment, and discover if you’re a spiritual/emotional infant, adolescent, or adult.
  • JuicePlus+ – the only nutritional supplement I take. It’s the next best thing to fruits and vegetables.
  • Noom – a revolutionary way to control weight and get fit, providing a personalized custom plan and help to develop a healthy lifestyle.

May these resources be inspiring, and fill your winter days and evenings with meaning and growth.
