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.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.
