I'd like to admit up front that I'm not a Tolkien expert. In fact, my knowledge of the LOTR universe is surface at best. So I walked into my screenings of the first two episodes of Prime Video's new series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power with only marginal awareness of the subject matter. … READ MORE about The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

I hope the book will be a blessing for you!
You might find it interesting that I would feel this way. I have been so supremely blessed in my work - blessed beyond my wildest dreams. And yet like many of you, I get in my brain often about my purpose and goals.
This weekend's letter from Caroline was a great reset for me. It reminded me that what I do matters and that it is not only reaching kids, but more importantly inspiring some of them to reach for their own dreams. What greater joy can there be as a writer than to know that something you wrote sparked a desire for a young girl to user her imagination to write?!
Today, I'm reminded of two priorities:
1. Our work, whether it is creating, caring for our families, curing cancer, teaching, digging ditches, or any other occupation has dignity and merit. Self-assessment and discernment are good. But so is reminding ourselves that what we do matters, that we matter.
2. Affirming others is important. If someone has created something, built something, or provided a service that has blessed us, it's important to let them know that their gifts made a difference in our lives. Caroline did that for me. I need to do it more frequently for others.
A question for all of us: who would you like to thank today and how can you best do that?
