Isn’t it amazing that friends can change our lives just by something they say mid conversation? That happens a lot to me! Here are some sweet things my friends have taught me without even realizing it:
Zack Blair – “Surround Yourself with People that Scare You”– This has helped me so much – get people around me who know so much more than I do that they scare me and have them invest in me. It’s taking me to another level.
Chris Martin – “Be the best ____ (Your name or ministry) “Bubba Smith” You can Be – It’s so easy to try to be those you idolize isn’t it? I’m learning who I am and how to become the best Bubba I can be, regardless of what others think.
Mike Steidel – “Be a Great #2”– Being a youth assistant puts me in a support role of my pastor. I’m really enjoying learning how I can add value to him by serving him and being a great number 2 guy.
Laura Steidel – “You’re Loved for Who You Are, Not What You Do”– This is changing my life. So often, I try to cover up insecurities in my life by accomplishing things. It’s very hard for me to find my value in who I am, instead of what I do, but I’m determined to get there!
Nathan Hurst – “What are You Doing to Making Yourself Indispensable?” – I’m recognizing that I’m moving beyond a level in leadership where I can just lead by passion. I need to start developing skills and actually build teams, people, etc. in order to take the next step. I’m excited for this next season!
