"His mercies are new every morning!" What a reminder on a beautiful autumn morning in Chicago!
Launching a new series at Willow called, "The God I Wish You Knew..." Can't wait!
This week God illuminated a text that took my breath away. Teachers know what a moment like that feels like. Only God!
I am still reflecting on the talk at The Global Leadership Summit about "Crucial Conversations." We leaders simply must master these skills.
30 mins of CNN brought Psalm 34:14 to mind: "Turn from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it."
Strategic neglect is critical to simplified living. #SimplifyBook
This week I'm giving away 20 copies of my dad @BillHybels' new book SIMPLIFY: bit.ly/VDmDMp. I just love this book!

After 18 months of trying to move my new book Simplify from "here to there" it is being released today. Learn more: simplifybook.com
Sure hope the Summit helped! Hope my new book Simplify will help as well. It releases tomorrow. #SimplifyBook
PS My favorite session Day 1 was Jeff Immelt CEO of GE. He blew my mind with wisdom then blew the secret of my new book "Simplify." Oh well.
Day 2 of the Summit holds huge possibilities! Praying that God will do what only He can do!
I am backstage surrounded by praying family and friends. Here we go! #GLS14
The satellite trucks are in the parking lot, the rehearsals are all done, prayers have been prayed. Tomorrow the Global Summit kicks off!
Simplified living is about more than doing less. It’s being who God called us to be.
Four more days until the 20th Ann. of the Global Summit. Just think of what God might do! Please pray. Our world needs better leaders!
I have been reminiscing on God's faithfulness over 20 years of Global Summits. Humbling. #GLS14
Only 7 days away from #GLS14. Over 90,000 leaders will be gathering to become better leaders. Wow! #GLS14
Reading Psalm 34 everyday leading up to the Global Leadership Summit has done wonders for my soul. Try it!
The launch of The Global Leadership Summit is 2 weeks from today. Can't wait! Prayers appreciated. #GLS14 bit.ly/1sqALE8

In a few hours I will be speaking at the Hillsong Conference here in Sydney. Can't wait! #HillsongConf
This is "Special Friends" week end @ Willow. We'll celebrate God's exceptional love for families with special needs challenges. Can't wait!
As a Dutch guy I must alert you that the deadline for the Best Summit rates is today. There, I feel better. bit.ly/1qPHg64 #GLS14
I am enjoying a wonderful spiritual hangover this morning from our baptism services this week end. Never gets old to me!
Happy Father's Day weekend! If you are anywhere near Chicago please join us for Dadfest! You will never forget it !!
One of my favorite week ends of the year--Father's Day! We call it "Dadfest" at Willow and bust it to fire up dads! Can't wait!
I have the privilege of mentoring some fantastic Canadian pastors today and tomorrow in Victoria B.C. Very cool harbor town!
Earlier today I reflected on the relentlessness of leadership. I decided I don't mind it. It calls the best out of me.
Everyone wins when a leader gets better! Register for Summit 2014 by midnight! bit.ly/1qPHg64 #GLS14
Mentoring pastors & leaders in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne & in Launceston, Tasmania. Full but fulfilling week! Prayers appreciated!
I have the honor of mentoring some of the finest pastors in New Zealand today in Auckland. Some are 20 yr friends. Pure joy!
My sermon this week end, "What To Do When an Unwanted Package of Pain Arrives at Your Doorstep." Anybody relate?
Pastors have huge opportunities this week end. Please pray that God will give them clarity and courage as they preach on G.F. and Easter!
Celebration of Hope at Willow is about as good as it gets for me! Don't miss today or next week!
Teachers know the miracle of God depositing a thought in your mind that is so much better than anything we could come up with. What grace!
I saw a boat named "Psalm 37." Boaters always have reasons for the names they choose. Take a fresh look at Ps. 37 and you will get it!
Willow launches Celebration of Hope this week end. 3 weeks laser focused on the plight of the poor. Can't wait!
"The Hard Thing About The Hard Things" by Ben Horowitz is the most thought provoking leadership book I have read in years.
I first read Willard's "Divine Conspiracy" in 1998. I read it again last week. Slowly. The God he describes is irresistible!

Chicago people are tough. But this winter has been a challenge. One of my linebacker friends said to me yesterday, "I am a broken man!"
We ignore the spiritual practice of solitude to our own peril. When we lean into it God always speaks.
Leaders: Everybody will be taking their cue from you today. Show up with energy and passion. Inspire and commend the team all day long!
My week end sermon is "Stronger in Patience." Willow knows this might not be my strongest virtue. The hazing has already begun! Brutal.
This week my sermon is "Stronger in Patience," which is like Miley Cyrus preaching on modesty or Donald Trump preaching on humility or......
Rehearsal day for the Baltic Leadership Summit here in Riga Latvia. Starts tomorrow. A thousand expectant leaders. Please pray!
No shortage of challenges today as I mentor pastors here in Kiev! Please pray for the Ukraine. So much potential!
After a sunrise walk along the Danube River I am good to go coaching pastors here in Bratislava Slovakia.
The Germany Leadership Summit starts tomorrow live here in Leipzig. 7500 pastors and leaders. Please pray for God's anointing power!
One hundred thirty pastors here in Strasbourg France fired up for some coaching today. Please pray that I will serve them well.
