My Personal Reading List

One of the best ways to grow as a leader is to read. Whether it's print or digital...reading will make you better. Here are some books I am reading the first three months of 2011. I read a blend of books that will help me grow professionally as a leader and spiritually as a Christ Follower.

I am reading this book for the 4th time. It's a must read for anyone in Children's Ministry.


For the next several days I will be posting:
  • Books our team is reading and discussing together.
  • Websites I read.
  • Blogs I read.
  • E newsletters I subscribe to.
  • Magazines I subscribe to. 
What are some books you have read that have made you a better leader or Christ Follower? What are some books you are going to be reading this year? Love for you to share your list as well.


    Love your list!
    I've read and recommend:
    Love Is The Killer App by Tim Sanders
    Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh
    Start With Why by Simon Sinek
    Buy In by John Kotter

    Cool...thanks Patty for sharing...I will check these out...

    I'm going to put a few of these on my list.
    My list for the next 3 months:
    The War of Art by Steven Pressfield
    Forgotten God by Francis Chan
    Theodore Boone by John Grisham (kids novel)
    The Animated Man...A Life of Walt Disney by Michael Barrier

    That's just a few.

    The Animated Man sounds interesting. I really enjoy reading books about Walt's life. I'll have to check that one out. Thanks for sharing.

    Evercool (I had my team read that a couple years ago...very good insight), 17 Qualities & Switch are all fantastic. Haven't read the rest. Drive is on my list, and right now I'm reading Relational Intelligence, Crucial Conversations & The Hole in the Gospel. I just finished Outliers, which I think you would really like, Dale. Have you read any of Malcolm Gladwell? Very good stuff. Thanks for the list!

    Outliers was awesome! One thing that stuck with me was the 10,000 hour rule. What would it look like if we spent 10,000 hours actively pursuing a relationship with Jesus?
