Happy Friday

It has been a heartbreaking few weeks here in Nashville, and as such, I skipped publishing Fifteen on Friday the week of the tragedy at The Covenant School here in town.  I just didn’t simply know what to say – I’m not sure I do now.  

For those readers not in Nashville, the picture above was taken last night on the grounds at Covenant as the school gathered for a chapel service, the first gathering of that community since.  Rainbows have a lengthy and powerful history within the Community of Faith.  Specifically, they call to mind Genesis 9 where God sets a rainbow in the clouds as a sign of his covenantal relationship between himself and all living creatures.  A powerful moment and reminder to this special community of friends and families that so many of us in Nashville know and love.

Blessings for your weekend…

My Book:

When Anything is Possible – Wealth and the Art of Strategic Living

  • Does how you handle your wealth actually align with what you care most about in the world?
  • Do you feel like you are pro-active and intentional with your financial affairs or entirely reactive to a busy world?

Growing financial wealth is a natural occurrence on the path to success. While this should make life easier, that is not always the case. With greater wealth, comes great opportunity and an overwhelming number of choices to make.

When Anything is Possible is the guidebook about how to engage strategically with wealth. It will help you change your wealth from something overwhelming and all-consuming towards a resource to be deployed to help you positively impact the things that you value most.
