Praise

Praise for The Power of a Half Hour

“Before reading this book, I never thought of seeing 30 minutes as a power-packed opportunity to improve my life. Pastor Barnett's half hour power principles have helped me strengthen my faith, become more productive, and connect with those I love with more intentionality. This book is as inspirational as it is practical, and I plan to use it as an integral part of my staff development program.”  
— Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
