This is a great book, hands down. Kevin Lowry is approachable and I found that, though he wrote what is undoubtedly a business book, it’s applicable to all of us who work, whether we work at home or in an office or on the road.

Great insights. Helped me recognize that I have a great gift in my work and a great responsibility and privilege to make Christ known in that environment. Thank you and may God bless you Kevin.
