Home Run: Learn God's Game Plan for Life and Leadership.pdf
"I heard Kevin Myers communicate these principles over a decade ago, and they have stuck with me ever since. I am thrilled that he and John have partnered to make these practical and timeless truths available to a broader audience. Not only are you going to enjoy this book, I have a hunch that you will never forget it . . . and will recommend it to others." (Andy Stanley, senior pastor of North Point Ministries)
"I've known John Maxwell for over twenty-five years. He's a bestselling author, a fantastic leader, and an even better friend. I haven't known Kevin Myers quite as long, but I've watched him become an outstanding leader and innovative, gifted communicator. With John's partnership, Kevin has finally put his most impactful teaching into written form so he can share it with the country. I don't know a single person who would not benefit from reading HOME RUN. I highly recommend it." (Bill Hybels, senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church and president of Board of Willow Creek Association)
"When I met Kevin, we just clicked. So did our staffs. I knew about him because of the message he gave at Catalyst in 2001. I must have listened to that lesson more than a dozen times because it was so impactful. What he taught then, he shares now in HOME RUN. Read it. Discuss it in your small group. Put it into practice. It's a message that can change your life." (Perry Noble, founding and senior pastor of NewSpring Church)
"Kevin Myers is special. At a time when my priorities needed some serious rearranging, he walked me through the Bible, and led me to a relationship with Jesus Christ. Since then I've heard him preach hundreds of messages and the book that you have in front of you right now represents Kevin at his best. Read it and discover how you can be at your best, as a dad, husband, mom, wife, business person, you name it...it's all in how you run life's bases, and for so long I was running the wrong way. Kevin Myers and John Maxwell teaming up to talk leadership is like Hank Aaron and Willie Mays talking about how to hit a fastball. You can't help but listen and soak it in. HOME RUN-it's a Grand Slam." (Ernie Johnson, Jr., sportscaster, TNT and TBS)
