So long 2017 … Welcome 2018!

You’ve arrived at this blog for one or more of the following reasons:

… Instagram or Twitter led you here

… we crossed paths somewhere in the world … SoCal • Colorado • Mississippi • Montana • Haiti • Bangkok • Oregon • ???

… we’re related … by blood or marriage

… we’ve been colleagues in ministry

… you’ve mentored me along the way

… you’re a Dad (or GrandDad) leading a family

… you’re leading a church, non–profit, or business

… you’re a man following Jesus

That last one is the most significant! … and the primary reason for this blog post.

These two handouts are designed to help you and those you love and serve to approach this New Year of 2018 with more intentionality … something we all need.  The attachments are self–explanatory:

Think about the questions individually, or discuss them in a group with family and friends.  Pass them along to others who may benefit as well.

My prayer is that God will bless you beyond measure as you reflect on 2017 and prepare for 2018 … while leading others to do the same.

Peace & Joy!

P.S.  If you’re new to StrongStakes, here’s some background info.  Many years ago, Isaiah 54:2 strongly impacted my thoughts about following Jesus.  This verse contains powerful images that speak to our life of discipleship.

  • “Enlarge the place of your tent; stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, do not hold back.  Lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes.”

The mission of StrongStakes is about equipping (“strengthen stakes”) and mobilizing (“lengthen cords”) men to follow Jesus.  Click the “Follow Blog via Email” link for automatic notifications when new disciple–building resources are added.

If these two handouts proved to be helpful to you, then post a comment on this blog, briefly describing how you used them.
