Developing the leader in me

I am 3 chapters deep into the best John Maxwell book I’ve read thus far – Developing the Leader in You.  I wish I had read this book several years ago. I believe God will use this book to help me become a much, much better leader.

But last night I became a better leader.  I’m not sure why it has taken me over a year. Last night we had our back 2 school bash (yep, there’s not much more “youth ministry-ee than the word “bash” and using the number 2 instead of the word “to” – jealous of my cool language).  I had so much fun hanging out with students – probably more so than I have in a long time.  Maybe I’m letting my guard down more. Maybe They trust me, even if it’s just a little bit.  Whatever the case may be, I feel like last night was great.  Now if only we would have been able to actually swim.

A Question to think about – why is it that when it’s thundering we cant get into the pool, yet we can take canoes out on the lake and steer them with metal paddles? Not complaining, just curious!

oh, and football season is about to start!
