The goal of all your effort isn’t the accomplishment. You are never done. You never reach the end of the horizon. There is always something else to chase. A new mountain to climb. Something to learn. Something to improve.
This month’s pursuits led me to some pretty incredible books and podcasts. Below are two books and three podcasts that moved the needle for me this month and helped me grow.

Hannah and I read this book with our Community Group last year and are now revisiting it with our Foundation Group. If you are unclear on the difference, a Foundation Group is collection of newly married couples paired with a mentor couple. Hannah and I have the privilege to serve as leaders for an amazing group of young married couples. We kicked off our study of Keller’s book this past week.
