Never forget that when I recommend another resource, whether it’s a book, podcast, blog, or something else, that I’m not necessarily endorsing everything in that resource.  I believe that we can learn from people we disagree with, even people we strongly disagree with.

I believe when it comes to resources that I recommend, that you can “eat the chicken, but spit out the bones.” That means you can take from any resource the things that are helpful even if they occur alongside of something that may not be helpful.  This requires you and I to be discerning and wise.

God calls us, like Jeremiah, to separate the precious things from the vile ones. Only the Bible is inspired and only Jesus was perfect, so take every recommendation I make with a grain of salt and if you have a specific concern about something I reference, please email me at
