The Power-Based Life

The Power-Based Life

On 10/27 David Kerr wrote: I completely agree with this assesment of the book. Flint’s book analyzes experiences that most of us have as young men and allows us to see how each of those experiences prepares us to become who God intends us to be. Flint does, however, fall a bit short on the analysis end. It’s not quite “academic” ... The Power-Based Life: Realize Your Life's Goals and Dreams by Strengthening Your Body, Mind, and Spiri
