Such a practical, helpful book! Mike Howerton, my longtime friend, uses a basic task of parenting – teaching a child to ride a bike – as a launching point for life lessons that will deepen your walk with Jesus and inspire you to develop a more vibrant faith.

Life is a lot like learning to ride a bike and Mike Howerton brilliantly draws out great insights from the Bible for riding well. I loved the creativity and simplicity in thinking about how to keep my own balance and how to get up when I fall. Through it all Mike compassionately points to the God of second chances who is available to help us move forward. This is a great book to read and share!

Sometimes, the most important lesson isn’t a new lesson. It’s reapplying simple truths that are often lost in the busyness and clutter of life. I’m not going to lie: Ride of Your Life is so simple…that it’s profound and refreshing. No matter where you may be in your journey as a follower of Christ, Mike Howerton helps us rediscover the courage and joy we need to pursue the convictions that God has placed upon our hearts.

Whether Mike Howerton is speaking or writing, I am leaning in. Rarely is there a new, fresh voice that speaks deeply to life and Mike’s is one of those. I found myself laughing hard, thinking deeply, and wanting to be different. I think you will too. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
