Books That Changed My Life

The book nerd is back - with a new list of amazing reads you should probably delve into this year. Now the bible's pretty sweet, but how great is it that God speaks through secondary means such as preachers and authors?

Book Review: Live Love Lead by Brian Houston

One of the highschoolers in my youth group handed me this book last week, with a card that says: "THIS BOOK BELONGS TO TIM LIM. Every delegate at Hillsong Conference received a free copy of this book to give to someone else and I chose you because I know you'll read it right?
