Henry Lewis lives in the Minneapolis area with his lovely wife where he writes and plays, and dreams of trails. He is just beginning to share his writing with others. His first published book, "Getting Amazing Things Done", shares his lifetime of insights on What Successful Project Managers Know and How They Lead People to Do Amazing Things. Henry's newest book, "Laughter Near the Edge of Heaven", are his Confessions of a Trail Runner. This work captures his twin passions of trail running and unpacking the things of God in the natural world. He takes us along the trails as he travels the world.
“What kind of leader will you be? Do you want to open windows of possibilities to your teams? Do you want to nurture others as they reach for their full potential? Do you want them to achieve amazing, startling, wonderful things, or just the same old, boring results?
If I know you, you want amazing. Good for you. If so, then you must purpose to serve them. You must set your mind to inspire and uplift every day in a thousand small ways. You must speak true, stay focused on the mission, and truly care about your people. And you must tell them these things with your words and actions every day. You are the leader.” Henry Lewis
It is Mother’s Day 2019. Today is marked by me and my children reaching out to my wife to express our deep love and affections. To express in some small way how much we love our mothers – their sacrifices, their efforts over the years to guide and nurture us. It is always beautiful to see.
My mother passed away many years ago. I can no longer tell her those things. May I encourage you to say ‘I Love You’ every day. Don’t wait for the perfect opportunity. Today is your day to speak words of love.
Let me share a poem I wrote when my mother died in April 1998.
Again I would say to you, don’t wait for the perfect opportunity. Today is your day to speak words of love.
“Sometimes when I run I discover a new world, an enchanted place for dreaming, where my imagination drifts high into the heavens and seems to brush the divine. Almost as an afterthought, I skirt the edges of eternity, and run past a thousand, sacred moments in my pursuit of lesser things.”

I’m hoping you’ll pick up a copy and then go find a new trail. It’s time to rock down some unknown footpaths and catch a fresh glimpse of heaven. Can you feel the excitement? Is that the sound of laughter on the wind? I think you’re in the zone.

Here is one small excerpt. “Sometimes when I run I discover a new world, an enchanted place for dreaming, where my imagination drifts high into the heavens and seems to brush the divine. Almost as an afterthought, I skirt the edges of eternity, and run past a thousand, sacred moments in my pursuit of lesser things.”
