This week’s FMF writing prompt is: INFLUENCE
The inspiration for this week’s prompt comes from my new book, Influence: Building a Platform that Elevates Jesus (Not Me), which just released this week!

I dedicated this book to you, the Five Minute Friday community.
My prayer is that it would be a great blessing and encouragement to you as you seek to use the gifts and influence God has given you for His glory.

Here’s my five minute free write for this week:
When you pause to think about it, what influence do you want your life to have?
What legacy do you hope to leave behind?
What do you want people to remember you for?
What impact do you long to have in the lives of other people?
In our new book, Influence: Building a Platform that Elevates Jesus (Not Me), my co-author Shannon Popkin and I are exploring questions like, “How can we use the gifts and influence God has given us for His glory?”
In this digital age, it’s easier than ever before to spread our messages.
So the question I’m posing today is: What messages will you spread?
Whether your sphere of influence seems great or small, it is still significant. Imagine if you could positively affect just one person. Would it be worth it?
How can we use tools like social media and the internet in general to influence others for good?
How can we use these resources to influence others for God?
As we post on social media, let’s ask the question: Does this post have the potential to edify or build up its readers?
Just a reminder that this is the last weekend to fill out the annual FMF Survey if you haven’t done it yet!
I’ll draw a winner on Monday, January 21st to win a $25 Amazon gift card.
