Light In The Darkness - Patrick Lencioni

Light In The Darkness
Patrick Lencioni
Lighthouse Catholic Media

Last year at work I did an in house leadership development program called LEAP Leadership Essentials Advance Program. A number of books on the recommended reading list were by Patrick Lencioni and I really found them useful and life impacting. Then last week when at church I was looking over the rack of resources from Lighthouse Catholic Media and I saw this audio resource. Now to be honest I hardly every buy media, books, cd's, tapes … because I usually buy digital content. But this intrigued me so much I picked it up right away, went home and listened to it. I have now listened to it every morning for a week.

This talk was amazing to listen to. Some of the quotes that hit me most are:
"It is not happiness we are looking for … it is peace!" and "If we are not living for God you will not find peace!" From there Patrick goes on to encourage us to "Ask God to take away your pride!" and also to "Pray asking for the peace of God!" Patrick also encourages us to learn to be vulnerable, to trust and be a team player. We need this as a central life skill.

This talk will have a huge impact on your life if you open to the Holy Spirit speaking to you. And it was so good that I have since picked up a few others. And look forward to exploring the hundreds of other titles available from Lighthouse.
