Keeping Yourself Spiritually Challenged


“But I think secondly, it’s imperative that every leader has a
minimum of one and a maximum of four trusted, loyal, and yet
objectively accountable people who work in close enough proximity

people like that around us, we are left to our own perceptions and
that has proven in the past to be a very deadly risk.”

voice. Amen.
