I believe that stories change the world.
The stories that we tell ourselves.
The stories our culture feeds us.
The stories that we tell our kids.
Once in a while, a new story breaks through.
Sometimes it even sticks in the back of my head.
It does it’s quiet work there.
It unconsciously shapes me.
When I read Audacious Ignatius, the bold perseverance stuck out.
I believe it could be part of why my daughter has persevered so joyfully
through all the transitions and challenges of the past year — and boldly confronts the world with hope each day.
I’m pre-ordering 8 copies of this new book by my college roommate:
I want my son to live boldly such that his life might give rise to a new institution of formation.
Anything I can do to potentially increase those odds — that’s a good investment.
Allow me to save you the hassle of picking out a new book next time your cousin, colleague, or neighbor has a kid.
Give the gift of a story that might pierce through the noise.
Who knows… it might change the world.
Stories of pioneering figures — persevering through uncertainty are more important than ever.
