Our guest for Red Backpack Show episode 22 is David Rendall.

.
In this episode Dave talks about his book (and movement)  The Freak Factor: Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness.
.
What’s your problem? Dave is serious. What do you wish you could change about yourself?
.
What is the complaint that you hear the most from those closest to you, your friends, co-workers, and family members? Are you too loud or too quiet, too hyperactive or too sedentary, too organized or too messy? You get the idea.
.
So, what should you do?
.
Most people think that they should find and fix their weaknesses. Unfortunately, this just leads to frustration and failure.
.
Your weaknesses are actually the best clue to your strengths. Furthermore, building your strengths, not fixing your weaknesses, is your best strategy for success.
.
This episode will encourage you to become more of who you are, not to turn you into someone else. It’s about becoming more different and more unique, not more average and more mediocre.

RBP 020 Packing Light with Allison Vesterfelt

Our guest for Red Backpack Show episode 20 is Allison Vesterfelt.  In this episode Allison talks about her new book Packing Light: Thoughts on Living Life with Less Baggage (Moody, 2013) a book about what happens when you’re willing to give up everything in order to get what you really want out of life.

.
From her website:
The book is a memoir-style, first person narrative about how I quit my full-time job, moved out of my apartment, sold all of my things and traveled across the country to visit all 50 States and achieve my dream of writing a book. Don’t worry. I’m not suggesting everyone should do what I did. But as I journeyed, I learned a powerful lesson for traveling that acts as a metaphor for all of life — there is only so much room in your suitcase (or in your house, or your day). You can’t take everything with you. What you choose to bring matters. You will have to leave some things behind. The message has changed my life so dramatically, I’m passionate about helping others discover their own answers to the questions that ultimately inspired my trip. What do you really want out of life? What is getting in your way?

RBP 018 The In-Between with Jeff Goins

Jeff Goins hangs with us on Red Backpack show and shares about his book The In-Between: Enbracing the Tension Between Now and the Next Big Thing (A Spiritual Memoir)
.
From Amazon:
.
We’re an “instant gratification” generation, but the trouble is, most change happens gradually.
.
Most of us spend our lives searching and longing for something more than what is in front of us. Whether it’s traveling abroad or chasing cheap (or expensive) thrills, we’re all looking for medicine to satisfy our restlessness. And, so often, we’re looking in the wrong place.
.
The In-Between is a call for all of us to accept the importance that waiting plays in our lives. In this spiritual memoir, Jeff Goins reveals the unexpected good that came from his times of waiting.And he encourages us to embrace the extraordinary nature of the ordinary and enjoy the daily mundane, what lies in between the “major” moments.
.
Moments of breakthrough are not where life’s greatest transformation happens; the stuff that God uses to shape us often lies in the in-between. It’s the bus stops and layovers and DMV lines and moments of unintentional pause that force us to become better people.
.
That’s not to say there aren’t moments of epiphany. There are. It’s just that most of us find ourselves living somewhere in the in-between. Learning to live in this tension, to be content in these moments of waiting, may be our greatest struggle…and our greatest opportunity to grow.
