27 - From Weakness to Strength (feat. Scott Sauls)
Happy MLK day weekend! This week, we're joined by pastor, blogger, and author Scott Sauls to talk about his new book, From Weakness to Strength: 8 Vulnerabilities That Can Bring Out the Best In Your Leadership. We talk about topics like ambition, isolation, criticism, envy, anticlimax, opposition, restlessness, and insecurity, as well as how these things can go from vulnerabilities to strength.
Connect with Scott on his website, Facebook, or Twitter. Get From Weakness to Strength on Amazon, and make sure to check out his other books: Jesus Outside The LInes and Befriend. Scott also recommends N.T. Wright's Surprised By Hope.
We also check in with our friend Sarah Fader to hear about her new book, The 10-Step Depression Relief Workbook: A Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Approach.
