James Barnett has a heart for adventure and a true sense of awe, and this part 1 of a 2-part bonus interview explores some of James’ fondest memories. From an uncle that modeled hard work and generosity to parents that modeled a life of prayer, James’ family has played a large role in his spiritual formation. His recently released book, Blue Skies: How to Live in Extraordinary Expectation of What’s Around the Corner, captures lessons he has learned from his family road trips.
James’ exposure to author Bob Buford and his book Halftime forced him to answer the question, “Are you driven or all you called?” This made him take a hard look at why God does something versus what God is wanting to teach in each of life’s circumstances. Celebrating a 41-year career at DaySpring – and now the President – God has used James’ adventures to shape his leadership both at work and home. Through his many experiences, James has allowed God to show him life lessons at every turn. There is so much to learn, and his Blue Skies book shows how we can capture and share them along the way.
So many great nuggets in this interview with James Barnett and his new book, Blue Skies: How to Live in Extraordinary Expectation of What’s Around the Corner.
