High Impact Life by Kelli Masters

 


High Impact Life is not a self-help book, it's more of a your life is important and here are some reminders of why that is book. 

Kelli Masters has spent the last few decades making a place for herself in a male-dominated industry. She's a sports agent, helping young athletes navigate the hiring process and finding the best fit for their skills amongst all the professional teams. But in reality, she helps atheletes become the people that they've always desired to be for their entire lives, not just the few years they play professional football. And she's taken some of the insights and encouragements and questions that she walks through with her clients and offered them to you in this book. It's encouraging, thought provoking, and ultimately, up to you whether or not this is a book worth reading. 

Masters shares her personal stories of becoming a sports agent as well as stories of her clients, some good, some difficult. Masters sums up the hope of this book in this line "Nothing you go through-not even your own self-sabotage, missteps, and mistakes-will go to waste. When you trust God, everything is redeemable and every experience will move you one step closer to your calling."

And what is your calling? To use your special gifts, quirks, yourself to help serve others.


I received a digital copy of this book for purpose of review from NetGalley, I'm never required to share a positive review but always thankful when I can.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
