OK, brief introductions… My name is Henry Lewis and I am a writer.
I live in the Minneapolis area with my lovely wife where I write and work and play and, yeah, I dream of trails. Sometimes I gaze wonder struck at the wink of a rising sun or stand entranced beneath the dancing northern lights across a night sky. My lifetime of writing include essays, poetry, and works of nonfiction and fiction. I am just beginning to share my writing with others. I invite you to come along.
Where have I been and what have I been doing?
For years I led mission-critical, troubled projects to achieve outstanding results, and traveled the world with IBM conducting classes and workshops to project managers and leaders. It was a great honor and a privilege to help others learn to lead with contagious joy – believing for amazing, startling, and wonderful things. This led to my first published book, “Getting Amazing Things Done” . In the book I share my lifetime of insights as a small business owner and project executive on What Successful Project Managers Know and How They Lead People to Do Amazing Things. This book helps struggling or aspiring leaders and project managers achieve truly remarkable outcomes. If this is interesting to you, please check out my GettingAmazing website devoted to the book and its ideas.
But my own interests are much broader…
My newest book, “Laughter Near the Edge of Heaven,” is my Confessions of a Trail Runner. This work captures my twin passions of trail running and unpacking the things of God in the natural world. I take you along the trails near my home and as I travel the world. Yes, there are divine truths along every trail and in every encounter. Do we see the hand of God in the quaking aspen leaf? Here is a little tease from the upcoming release in several weeks.
“These trails are pathways to the heart, trails to truer things. They let us dance and weave along eternity’s glimmering edge. We play in this timeless majesty. We hear the sounds of heaven in small gurgling brooks, catching the fragrance of his glory in the ancient aroma of the woodlands, and feeling the wing of an angel on the edge of a passing breeze. Here we hear the voice of God as He whispers to our hearts, for we have seen Him painting a canvas with every trail we have ever run.” Henry Lewis
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. It means a lot to me.
Please follow me and give me a like. I’ll take it as an encouragement to keep on rockin’. It’s really good to have companions on a journey like this!
