Mark Batterson was one of the first folks I followed as a blogger. When I realized I wanted to write, he was doing it already and he was doing it well. Now just about everyone blogs. Not true. But it feels like I connect with very influential and motivational people who all blog. There’s something to be said for processing life, events, thoughts through words. The transparency and the discipline are beautiful.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about family and legacy. I’ve been thinking about the next season of my life. That has included a lot of story-telling, as husband & father and as an education consultant. Then I stumbled on this short vignette from Batterson: Why I Write.
