A Sermon You Need to Hear

A Sermon You Need to Hear

When I began my journey back into my faith, I stumbled upon Michael Todd. Michael Todd is a pastor and New York Times best selling author. I first heard of him when he made a guest appearance on Sadie Robertson’s podcast Whoa That’s Good back in April of 2020. He talked about his story with his wife and got into what his book Relationship Goals is about. It was enough for me to go out and buy the book right away. And let me tell you- it’s one of the first books I’ve had to fight with myself to put down. He’s been in hot water before for his approaches toward spreading the word of God, and in some cases, I can see why. But overall, I think he still shares great messages that we all need to hear.

Books I NEED To Read

Books I NEED To Read

I’ve never really had the time (or interest) to read. I used to love reading, but as I grew older, I felt a shift where I almost never picked up a book unless I absolutely had to… and even that was rare. But I recently decided that I want to change that.

I took my biweekly trip to Target with my sister the other day. It was one of the first times in a while that I wasn’t being rushed, so I thought I’d stop at the book section. I found myself drowning in so many options. My sister was not getting me out of the aisle no matter how hard she tried.

Unfortunately, groceries were top priority, so I could only get one book that trip. After ten minutes of going back and forth, I finally chose Own Your Everyday by Jordan Lee Dooley. It’s a beautiful book so far. It’s all about overcoming pressure and getting past whatever is holding you back. I really needed to read it right now. Perfect book, perfect timing.

But, like I said, there were a ton of books that I wanted to read. I was sure to jot down all the titles and authors so I could remember them all and start checking them off a list. I even looked online for even more books I may want to read.
