LLLCoverLive, Love, Lead by Brian Houston

I received the “Live, Love, Lead” book by Brian Houston, and thought it would be perfect for my family to read. Our church “Calvary Chapel of the White Mountains” uses many of the worship songs from the Hillsong worship group for our services, and we’ve come to know about their church well. I figured that this book would be a great one to read and to learn from.

Immediately upon starting to read, I came upon this:

Whether you’re taking baby steps or giant strides, walking on water or running on empty, wherever you are in your journey of faith, Jesus is the ultimate guide and companion.

How true is that? Especially in today’s world, where a lot of us are veering off of the track, we definitely need to have Jesus as our guide. This is a great book, and I’m so happy to have it to add to my bookshelf! 🙂

About The Book:

houstonWhether a person is searching for their calling or wholeheartedly pursuing their life’s purpose, LIVE LOVE LEAD will help them navigate a faith path that is all their own and discover unique gifts tailored perfectly for their journey.

How do people experience the best life that God intends for them? The answer lies in understanding that the Christian life is an adventure, and that they only have to follow the greatest Guide who ever walked the path of life–Jesus. In this straightforward book, Brian Houston shows readers the way to live fully, love completely, and lead boldly–the hallmarks of Jesus’ time on earth.

Your best is yet to come!

Did you know that your life has a unique roadmap, a purpose all its own, distinct and matchless to any other individual on planet earth? And that this path is ready for you to conquer – regardless of how far you are on life’s journey, how many mistakes you feel you’ve made, or roadblocks you have come up against. We are all born with God-given potential to leave our own imprint on the world around us.

When Brian Houston – Global Founder and Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church – set out to pioneer with 40 people and a school hall, he was unsure of the highs and lows, sacrifices and disappointments that would mark the 32-year journey of miraculous opportunities and dreams come true.

Live, Love, Lead is his story, woven in to the greatest story ever told, with room for chapters all your own to be written and re-written. This book is a declaration to your future, a reminder that belief, passion and calling can give way to a full and abundant life, despite any mysteries, setbacks or mountains that get in the way.

When it comes to life with Jesus, there is no doubt – your best is yet to come!

After completing school, Brian went to Bible College for three years. Shortly after completing College, he met Bobbie on Papamoa Beach in New Zealand during a Christian convention. They were married in 1977.

In 1978, Brian and Bobbie moved to Sydney from New Zealand where Brian served at Sydney Christian Life Centre, Darlinghurst as Assistant Pastor to his father, Frank. In 1980 he planted a church on the Central Coast, and then another in Liverpool a year later, both of which are still thriving churches today.

In 1983, Brian saw a need in Sydney’s north-western suburbs for a contemporary, life-filled, Bible-based church, and started Hills Christian Life Centre in the Baulkham Hills Public School hall on Sunday 14 August 1983 with just 45 people. It is now Hillsong Church, which comprises four major worship centers (Baulkham Hills, Waterloo, Southwest and Brisbane) plus a citywide network of connect groups, extension services across the city, and growing congregations in London, Kiev, Cape Town, Paris, Stockholm and Moscow.
