3) Lifetime Achievement Award

I just received this amazing notice from the folks at Marquis Who’s Who:

Congratulations! You’ve been named a 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Less than 5% of Marquis Who’s Who listees are selected for this honor. An accomplishment of this magnitude can be of significant value to you both professionally and personally.

Marquis Who’s Who

I’ve been listed in their Who’s Who in America a number of times in the past, and I’m appreciative of the honor, but am reminded that St. Paul said this about worldly honors:

The very credentials these people are waving around as something special, I’m tearing up and throwing out with the trash—along with everything else I used to take credit for. And why? Because of Christ. Yes, all the things I once thought were so important are gone from my life. Compared to the high privilege of knowing Christ Jesus as my Master, firsthand, everything I once thought I had going for me is insignificant—dog dung. I’ve dumped it all in the trash so that I could embrace Christ and be embraced by him. 

Philippians 3:7-9 (MSG)

5) TSI Fan Writes

I received an encouraging note from a reader that was a blessing for me:

Hi! I am a huge fan of your TSI books. I have never read anything quite like them. I own both and am obsessed. I have loved them for years and read them multiple times. I am dying to know what happens next!! I’d love more TSI books.
