A couple of the questions I receive most often are, “What book would you suggest for…?” or “Where do you get your…?”

Thankfully, the “…” in those sentences isn’t “this odd rash” or “capri pants,” but rather, stuff having to do squarely with the Connections aspect of my role. If you’re looking for resources on guest services, covenant membership, or leadership, you’ll find what I’m reading and who I’m working with below.

This list is ever-evolving, so if you have a suggestion for an additional resource, leave a comment and I’ll check it out!

All of these are on my shelf and are titles I’d recommend, but if you have a limited budget, check out the starred (*) books first. One quick note to appease the FCC folks: if you order a book from one of the links below, I may receive a small affiliate commission from Amazon. We’re talkin’ really small, like enough to buy maybe 3-4 more books per year. Still, if that annoys you, feel free to bypass these links.
