Why I Lead

My wife and I are part of a team which helps leads young students in our youth group. Sometimes they’re angelic. Other times you’d think they were possessed.

And yet we return week after week to help teach and lead these students.

Over the years I’ve cut back on my TV viewing. We’ve become more intentional with how we spend our time and watch we watch.

This has led us to cut our cable and purchase a Roku2 XS box. One of the cool features is the Roku allows you to subscribe to “channels.” A channel I’ve grown found of has been the TED channel.

This allowed me to watch a talk by the late Coach John Wooden. In it, he shared a poem called Why I Teach.
