Today, I’m starting a new weekly feature on my blog called “Five on Friday.” Each Friday I will recommend: (1) a book(s) that I’ve recently read, (2) a blog I enjoy reading, (3) a podcast I listen to regularly, (4) a song that is ministering to me at the moment, and (5) a relevant quote inspired by my experiences of the week. I hope you enjoy the recommendations!
Book (this week it’s a trio of leadership books by Jon Gordon)

I consistently read Dr. Ron Highfield’s blog that he describes as “opinions and answers to infrequently asked questions in theology.” Dr. Highfield is Professor of Religion at Pepperdine University and the author of several books that you can find here.
I enjoy listening to Dr. Albert Mohler’s podcast called “The Briefing.” In it, he looks at current events from a Christian worldview. This podcast is informative, insightful, and extremely helpful in learning how to engage with current events as a Christian.
Our church family recently launched a Celebrate Recovery ministry that helps people overcome the hurts, habits, and hangups that keep them from living the life Christ offers. Because of that, this rendition of “How Can It Be” by The Zoe Group has been very meaningful to me over the last few weeks.
“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.” – Charles Haddon Spurgeon
