Top Ten || November

Here are ten things I'm loving that will help you move the needle.

1) “5 Ways To Stop Hating Your To-Do List” from Doist

The makers of Todoist have been featured on Top Tens multiple times—and for good reason. In this post, learn the common pitfalls ailing your unfinished to-do list. If you find yourself resenting the action items in front of you, there’s a good chance it’s because you’re not following one or more of these five principles of great action items.

2) “Celebration Must Be Stronger Than Cynicism” from Jon Tyson


Jon Tyson is at it again. This sermon is worth your time. In a culture flooded with anger and cynicism, how does the church cultivate a culture of celebration? This is the question Jon Tyson masterfully answers. It’s well worth your time and encourages you to keep up the holy partying.

3) My Herschel wallet


I just love this thing. It fits perfectly in my pocket and has just enough pockets for just the right amount of cards. Plus, you’re not spending all your money to hold your money. Herschel has made a wallet that’s affordable without compromising quality. It makes a great gift for you or another guy in your life.

4) “Psalm 42” from Tori Kelly

I can’t stop listening to this. Tori Kelly’s voice just draws you closer to God. She turns a beautiful Psalm into a beautiful song, and if you’re looking to be refreshed—look no further. Below, she performs the song live.

5) Amy Grant Christmas music

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and that means Amy Grant is back in heavy rotation. She made this list during Christmas last year, and I imagine she’s destined to make it again many years in a row. If you go through the Christmas season without “Tennessee Christmas,” did you even have a Christmas season at all?

6) The HOPE International gift catalog

Give the gift of hope this Christmas by supporting entrepreneurs around the world in your loved one’s honor. Browse items and learn the stories of hardworking clients in the countries where HOPE works. I’m proud of what our team has put together, but I’m even more excited about what this means for families in underserved communities.

7) The Johnson Family Light Show

I mean, this is just so over the top in so many ways. And I love it. Johnson family, I don’t know you—but I want to. I gladly surrender to your Christmas light greatness.

8) The Honey Chrome extension

Install Honey and never worry about making sure you’re getting the best deal again. Honey scans through all known discount codes for you at checkout and helps you make sure you’re not overspending. This time of the year, that’s a huge perk.


1Password wins the award for greatest password manger ever. If your password is still 12345, you need to make a change in your life. 1Password not only (very) securely stores all of your passwords for all of the sites in your life, but it also automatically generates insanely long unique passwords so you can worry less about your identity getting stolen. Plus, their iPhone app makes it possible to autofill your alphabet-length passwords on your phone in a breeze.

10) Whole Foods Catering

Why stress about Christmas dinner when you can have Whole Foods stress about it for you? Our family delegated all the cooking to Amazon’s new child this Thanksgiving, and I’d strongly recommend you do the same if you’re not in the mood/don’t like to cook.
