Why “Learn With Me” Is So Much Better Than “Learn From Me”
Don’t just teach us what you know, teach us what you’re learning.

Irresistibly Curious

There’s far more to gain from someone who is vulnerable enough to let you watch them learn, fail, then try again than there is from someone who thinks they have it all figured out.

We can get facts from anyone. Actually, we don’t even need a person for facts. There’s an app for that.

But if you want to learn anything about life, faith or relationships, it can only happen from being with someone who is actively learning those things in real time.

Great teachers are irresistibly curious learners.

Great teachers are irresistibly curious learners.

If you want to be a great teacher, bring us along for the ride. As you’re learning it. Before you have it all figured out.

Because you’ll never have it all figured out. Neither will we.

So let’s experience the joy of learning together.
