Greg McKeown is a powerful writer and a wonderful podcast host. His book Essentialism is a game changer.
I listened to his latest podcast episode today on the way to the office — The Power of a Grateful No. If you’ve ever struggled with making or keeping boundaries, I’d encourage you to listen to this episode.

I’ve owned a lot of Bibles over the years. I tend to use different sizes or styles for different purposes (preaching, studying, general reading, travel, etc.). I recently bit the bullet and purchased what many would call a premium Bible. There are several publishers that are well known for really high quality Bible bindings — I may mention others in the weeks to come. But my favorite so far is the Allan NIV Classic Reference Edition NIV1.
This particular NIV is bound with black goatskin, with a full yapp cover which protects the pages. It feels incredible!
I have not regularly used the NIV since my youth group days. It has been a nice change in recent months. The NIV is the most widely used English language modern translation. It aims for an all-round balance between formality and informality in its rendering of the orginal languages of the Bible.
Here’s a bit about Allan Bibles: Since 1863, R.L. Allan & Son Publishers have been producing and selling our own exclusive Allan range of high quality, hand-finished leather Bibles – Bibles which are both beautiful and durable. They are perhaps the finest leather-bound Bibles you can buy.
A Quote from I’m Thinking About
You don’t have to be positive all the time. It’s perfectly okay to feel sad, angry, annoyed, frustrated, scared and anxious. Having feelings doesn’t make you a negative person. It makes you human.”
