Author Resource: Tim Challies
Tim Challies is an author, Pastor, blogger, and book reviewer at challies.com. I found him one day on YouTube while looking at book reviews.

The articles are heavy leaning towards his denomination, but every now and again, you will find some great ones for all Christians.
He has written the following books:
Favorite Quotes From Do More Better
Productivity—true productivity—will never be better or stronger than the foundation you build it upon.
There is no task in life that cannot be done for God’s glory.
You need to structure and organize your life so that you can do the maximum good for others and thus bring the maximum glory to God.
You need to be a Christian—a person who has believed in Jesus Christ and received forgiveness for your sins, a person who has given up living for yourself and begun living for the glory of God.
God calls you to productivity, but he calls you to the right kind of productivity. He calls you to be productive for his sake, not your own.
You have limited amounts of gifting, talents, time, energy, and enthusiasm, but unlimited ways of allocating them.
Your primary pursuit in productivity is not doing more things, but doing more good.
My ability to make wise decisions is directly connected to my understanding of my mission. When I am confident in my mission, I am confident in my decisions.
Motivation gives the desire and energy to begin making changes in your life, but it cannot sustain them.
…motivation gets you started, but habit keeps you going. You need to use those times of high motivation to build habits and to embed those habits in a system.
The person who lives with an awareness of God’s presence, who lives under God’s authority, and who longs to bring God glory is the person who will be highly motivated to do more good—to do the most good for other people.
