What a Book Launch Party!
Thank YOU for shaping my life.
This past Saturday, I invited around 60 friends here in Pasadena to celebrate the launch of Rhythms of Resilience.
It was one of my favorite days in my life.
The thing I was most impressed by wasn’t, however, what I anticipated. It wasn’t the buzz around the book, the amazing tacos, or even the fact that I wrote a book. As I saw all the faces of the people who arrived, I was so humbled and in awe by the people God placed around my life.
The great lie we live in the Western world is hyper-individualism. Success and all that God wants to do through us is not a product of “me pulling myself by my boots.”
Rather, we are woven in a tapestry of God’s people. We are, in some shape or form, dependent on the myriad of people around us. As I saw people, I was reminded of every conversation I had about the book. I was reminded of every time someone put their hand on my shoulder and said, “Keep going Phil”. I was reminded of how my life group supported me this season. I was reminded of even friends from seasons past who shaped me into the man who wrote this book.
So with that being said… I wanted to say THANK YOU!
Thank you if you’re reading this. Every time you open one of these letters, liked a post, left me a comment. Your words have encouraged me.
The feedback about the book has been phenomenal so far. People are really treasuring the words. The common sentiment I feel is, “Where was this book 2 years ago??” I’m sorry it took so long! But it took 2 years to grow into becoming the man necessary to write something like this.
Thank you again. If you happen to snag a copy, let me know how the message resonates with you. Here is the link to buy it if you haven’t!
You were made for greatness,
P.s because quite a bit of people have requested it, I’m going to be releasing my personal material on my year-end summit with my wife to help remember our 2022 and shape our 2023 for God’s glory. Let me know if that would be interesting to you!
