"Each of us has 'influencers' who have affected our lives-- some from a distance, some through word or deed, some through example, be it good or bad. Often we don't recognize the deep impact others have had and how God has used them to shape us into who we are. By pausing to recognize these influences, we begin to grasp how God's guest list has impacted our lives. We begin to see the seeds of influence that have molded our values and character."--Book jacket.
