“You can’t draw
much water out of
a shallow well.”
~Jim Garlow – Pastor Skyline Church

If you are thirsty, find a deep well. Find a reservoir in which a person could almost drown – at least metaphorically.
I read or I die! What a profound statement. And it is true. I can measure the goodness of my content by my reading life.
And so I go and find good wells of insight, good books, and authors who can stretch me, inspire me, make me pause in mid-sentence and say “Wow!”
I’m just now discovering Hemingway and Steinbeck. These are two deep wells from which I am just beginning to drink.
Other wells that I love to hang around are …
~Christa Tippet – On Being
~Brennan Manning and Philip Yancey (for
the Christian mindset)
~Bob Goff - what a fresh drink he is.
~Julia Cameron (The Artist Way and others)
~Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich and
~Earl Nightingale (The Strangest Secret)
And how could I ever forget Seth Godin. He’s the man! Insightful, on-purpose, challenging, astute. I get a daily dose of Seth in my in-box.
Shallow wells don’t do it for me. Lead me to deep wells and I shall drink deeply.
