Where are you in your life that contributed to the “perspective” you bring?
I’m 30; I’m engaged; and I’m still not sure what I want to do with the rest of my life. I’m a normal person. I speak in a language hopefully others will be able to understand. There’s nothing special about me other than a strong desire to be obedient to the calling God has placed upon my heart.
How will this book minister to or help twentysomethings?
Helping others understand that you are not along in your struggles; you are not alone in dreaming dreams; and you are not along in your frustrations. Establishing community is often a challenge for twentysomethings. Hopefully, this book will offer some common ground by sharing what I’ve learned as well as many others through the Seasoned Advice from those ages 30 to 80.
What’s the most important part of being a spiritual leader today?
Next to my desk is a printout of three words: passion, character, and conviction. Nothing can unravel one’s ministry more quickly than a lapse in judgment. Obedience to the Lord in all areas of your life is the most important element to spiritual leadership. The Lord desires men and women with hearts for Him, men and women who are in the Word and on their knees. We are all fallible with feet of clay. We will all stumble, but those in leadership need to create scaffoldings of support and accountability in order to ensure others do not fall away on account of you. Just like in the movie Spiderman, “With great power comes great responsibility.”

Do you plan on writing more books?
I have no desire to be an author who writes books merely for financial gain. My heart longs to encourage individuals in their spiritual growth. If the Lord puts another topic on my heart, I will certainly oblige. A few topics have sparked my interest recently.
