  • Thanks so much for the interview and for sharing about the book with your community.

    Thank you Matt and Jon, great interview, looking forward to reading the book. I liked your Proper Prior Planning quote and listening to God’s voice. “being still” so many distractions these days it’s hard to slow down but so important for remaining on track.

    • I liked that too Rich. I’d never heard it before and now I’ve heard it twice in the past 10 days :)

    • Rich, working in the construction world for the past 20 years, I’ve heard variations of this quote related to many of our projects. What is one thing you can do to “be still” this week?

        Jon, My morning Bible reading is a must, but I
        also plan my travel to meetings so I will arrive early. I will spend a few
        minutes in the car, no phone, Ipad,PC or radio. Just quite!

        • Finding quiet in my life definitely requires intentionality.

  • Hey Jon, nice calming voice you have! I just placed an Amazon order 2 days ago so your book will just have to sit in my cart until I need enough other stuff to qualify for free shipping. Looking forward to reading it. (If I find any typos, do you want to know? I can’t help it – it is my non-spiritual gift.)

    And in today’s “Jesus Calling” book, Ps. 46:10 was the reference. I’ve been working such long days that I’m a little afraid to be still because I might fall asleep right this minute instead of moving to the next thing.

    • Jana, hope you enjoy the book. I’d greatly appreciate it if you’d tell me about any typos you find. Well intended feedback coupled with well received feedback is a recipe for success.

  • Thanks for this interview- I really enjoyed it. I follow Jon. He’s an inspiration.

  • Congrats on the book, Jon. It’s on my list to read. I could certainly relate to not liking to run until later in life. I love it now! I also love all the life lessons we can learn from running.

    • Thanks, Eileen. How has running helped you stay on track?

    How can I create works that will deeply touch others?

    • Write about what deeply touches you.

      We’re all unique but all the same. The movie Rudy inspires the 350 lb. lineman and my 100 lb. wife.

      What you write about may not deeply touch everyone, but it will someone.

      • Good advice. Dan, I think you do this.
