Forest Whitcraft for me because I always think that the worldly things matter... I cant take them to heaven but I can bring kids to heaven

I'm reading "A New Kind of Leader" by Reggie Joiner and have found a lot of really good quotes:

"If everyone in your church is comfortable with who is showing up on Sundays, then you haven't opened the door wide enough."

"What you do for a kid is like making an investment. It gains more value over time. The sooner you start paying in, the greater the return will be later. The longer you wait, the less you earn."

"Maybe if we start making every family matter more to the church, the church will matter more to the family."

Thanks for sharing Jessica. Great book for sure - I've read it and gleaned much from it.
