A “To Be” List

Today, I am guest posting at my friend Heidi’s blog. I’d love it if you’d jump over there and check it out. If you’re visiting from Heidi’s blog, Welcome!


I am a big fan of Ian Morgan Cron. I loved his memoir Jesus, My Father, the CIA and me. I’ve heard him speak on multiple occasions, and his message and style really engages me. It’s also why I love listening to his podcast.


He said something on his latest episode, Thoughts on Spiritual Practices, that I just love and can’t stop thinking about.

“I don’t have a To-Do list, I have a To-Be list”

I love this idea.

Here are a few that top my list.

I want to be a person who makes a difference in the world.

I want to be someone who makes people feel better when we are done talking.

I want to be someone who “leaks Jesus on people”, as Bob Goff says.

What’s on your To-Be list? Who do you want to be?


  1. Thanks for this! Even before the new year, I was praying, “Lord, I want do do less and be more.”

    Glad you came over to my place today! 😉

  2. I like Bob’s to be list. It pretty much sums up everything.
