Now reading - "12 Rules For Life" by Jordan Peterson

I got my copy of “12 Rules For Life” by Jordan Peterson in the mail. Eager to start reading. The New Yorker calls Peterson “one of the most influential—and polarizing—public intellectuals in the English-speaking world.” He’s easily one of the most compelling personalities on the internet over the past few months. Can this book live up to the hype?

Happy Birthday, C.S. Lewis

Happy birthday to C.S. Lewis (born November 29, 1898). 

C.S. Lewis was distinguished academic, a popular Christian theologian, and a best-selling author of children's literature. His forty books have sold 200 million copies and have been translated into thirty languages. Lewis had an impact on me and my family. I read Mere Christianity as a teenager and it had a significant effect on my Christian faith. I have re-read it several times since then. I read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe to each of my kids. Happy birthday C.S. Lewis!

Now reading - “Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the creator of Nike” by Phil Knight

I'm reading “Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the creator of Nike” by Phil Knight. Shoe Dog tells the amazing story of Nike from its beginnings in 1964 (the company was initially called “Blue Ribbon Sports”) to the iconic multi-billion dollar enterprise it is today. I’m half-way through. A fascinating, riveting book.
