“I meet thousands of pastors and leaders every year, and Jeff Polen and his family really stand out. One of those, “Wise beyond his years” kind of guys. His heart to walk with Jesus and love others alongside Jesus is contagious. Jeff texts a group of people every Monday morning asking how he can pray for them that week. All to say, I’m thankful for Jeff and trust that you’ll be greatly encouraged by this book!”
