Ernie Johnson, Jr., has been in the game a long time. With one of the most recognized voices in sports broadcasting, he is a tireless perfectionist when it comes to preparing and delivering his commentary. Yet he knows that some of sports' greatest triumphs - and life's greatest rewards - come from those unscripted moments you never anticipated.

Ernie in his transparent engaging way shares the highs, lows and everything in between of a life well lived. In fact, through him unpacking so many events, I would call life lessons, I’m a better man, husband, father and grandfather! I’ve read hundreds of books and this one is now in my top 5, best ever reads! Thank you Ernie, I hope to meet you someday to thank you personally!

Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics - as well as the experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, FBI agents, airplane pilots, and Broadway songwriters - this painstakingly researched book explains that the most productive people, companies, and organizations don't merely act differently. They view the world, and their choices, in profoundly different ways.

I recently attended a conference where the COO of Mailchimp mentioned this book was at the core of the culture he was creating for his teams. With that recommendation, I read smarter faster better. This book is absolutely incredible and filled with rich resources and practical application! It ranks as one of my top five best books I’ve ever read!

In his latest business fable, top leadership author Mark Miller tells the story of newly appointed CEO Blake Brown, who takes over a company distressed by poor performance and low morale. Nothing Blake learned from his previous job seems to help him deal with the bigger, more complex problems he now faces. The game has changed. As his new mentor points out, Blake is playing a simple game of checkers when he should be playing chess.

Because obeying God makes sense to us, in most cases, His laws appear reasonable and wise, and even when we don’t want to obey them, we usually concede that they are good for us. But the circumstances we find ourselves in often defy explanation. When unexpected situations arise that appear unjust, irrational, or even dreadful, we feel confused and frustrated. And before long, we begin to doubt God’s concern for us or His control over our lives.

This book was incredibly written and well thought out in addressing the question "Can you trust God?" The did an excellent job in addressing the sovereignty of God from every possible facet. The bulk of the evidences provided are not opinion based but very much scripturally based, which makes this book so powerful and life-changing. If you haven't read it yet, why not do so now? You'll experience greater peace in your life as well as greater confidence in Almighty God that he is fully trust worthy in any and every situation!

The health of your soul isn't just a matter of saved or unsaved. It's the hinge on which the rest of your life hangs. Best-selling author John Ortberg presents another classic that will help you discover your soul - the most important connection to God there is - and find your way out of the spiritual shallow-lands to true divine depth. With characteristic insight and an accessible story-filled approach, Ortberg brings practicality and relevance to one of Christianity's most mysterious and neglected topics.
