3 things that keep your spiritual life on track:
  • Disciplines formed early in my life

1 final thing you would say to encourage someone else on their spiritual journey:
  • Every spiritual journey is different. Don’t compare; just develop your own rhythm. Seasons of life, responsibilities, jobs, appointments, travel and other things will change the way you do things. That’s okay. It’s not HOW you grow — it’s that you DO grow. Be accountable to God and a friend. Love God, love people.
