My Thoughts

God gives us 24 hours each day.  How we spend it is up to us.  Pastor Barnett has flooded this book with time management ideas, shows ways to gain control of wasted minutes, and reveals how to block our day into 30 minute increments to eliminate waste.  At the conclusion of this book, the author presents 30 personal strategies to attack wasted time.  He also includes a small group study guide which would be an excellent tool for life groups, and home and church Bible studies. Whether you are a corporation president, a stay at home mother, or a student, you will gain new prospective on the value of time in your personal life.
This book is highly recommended by the following church leaders:
“Before reading this book, I never thought of seeing 30 minutes as a power-packed opportunity to improve my life. Pastor Barnett’s half hour power principles have helped me strengthen my faith, become more productive, and connect with those I love with more intentionality. This book is as inspirational as it is practical, and I plan to use it as an integral part of my staff development program.”

— Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries“Tommy Barnett inspires people to be bold witnesses and fulfill Christ’s commission. He accomplishes much for the kingdom. After reading this dynamic book, you’ll understand why.
