Welcome to Reagan’s Roundup, where every Friday I share links to things from around the web that I think you will find interesting or helpful in your journey to become a better steward of the life God has given you.
Here’s what we covered this week on Redeeming Productivity:
- On the podcast: I talked about Prayer and the Productive Christian.
- On the blog: I asked and answered the question Does God Care If We Diet and Exercise?
Now, here are some other links from around the web:
“Why does James point out that Elijah had ‘a nature like ours’? To stress that even Elijah was only human. God can answer our big, rain-stopping, holiness-pleading prayers just like his. If a righteous person prays for you according to God’s will, expect God to answer the prayer. He will grant what you ask.”
This is a fun way to challenge yourself to read more in the new year. There are options for various levels of ambition—from 13 books in the year all the way to 104.

This is a really cool idea.
“My goal was to fully prepare 1 Bible every 4-5 years over the course of 25 years. That would give me one heirloom Bible for each of my 5 children. I have now completed 1 and am part way through a second.”
“Leave out one ingredient and the whole recipe falls apart. Some things are just essential. When it comes to leading others, the task is impossible without trust. That’s because trust is at the heart of leadership. If you’re called to lead, you’re called to steward the trust others place in you. Students want to be able to trust their teachers. Spouses want to be able to trust one another. Church members want to be able to trust their pastors. And employees want to be able to trust their managers.
That’s it for this week! Next week, I have an interview with Nate Pickowicz you won’t want to miss. So be on the look out for that on Monday.
