"The Stewardship Playbook is a powerful and insightful look into how we can lead a more Godly life. Lawrence’s willingness to be open and transparent (and to expose his own vulnerabilities in many cases) when sharing his faith and his stories—successes and failures, the highs and the lows—highlights the greatness of our Lord when we totally submit our will under His guidance. We are all God’s children and He loves us more than our human minds can even comprehend—so much that He gave His only begotten Son as a sacriﬁcial lamb for our sins. As I read The Stewardship Playbook, I was convicted to make a stronger commitment (“to up my game”) in several of the areas that are discussed in the playbook, including better discipline regarding my physical health with a focus on nutrition and being a better steward of the blessings that our Lord has gifted me. The Stewardship Playbook will inspire you to take a deeper look at your personal convictions to move you closer to our gracious, loving Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As Funderburke quotes Matthew 25:23 in the dedication of the book—“‘Well done, good and faithful servant’”—I believe that this is the message that our Lord would say to Mr. Fundy as he penned the ﬁnal words in this outstanding book."
"The Stewardship Playbook is a must-read for anyone who desires to be a better version of himself or herself in 2019. Each of the ﬁve sections, Time, Talents, Temperament, Temple, and Treasures, are chalked full of personal experience and Godly wisdom. Funderburke takes his personal convictions seriously and will challenge you to do the same. Being in the investment industry, I had heard of Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) before, but had never seriously contemplated it. I am now praying and seeking the Lord's wisdom for my family, my clients, and for my ﬁrm as it relates to BRI. Buckle up and prepare to have your perspectives challenged! “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.” Proverbs 27:17
"The Stewardship Playbook has been such a blessing for me and my family. It has compelled me to prioritize what matters most in life and that is to be a faithful steward of what has been entrusted under my care. As a stay-at-home mom, this responsibility as the manager of what takes place in my household requires a far amount of planning and oversight. The Stewardship Playbook has helped me manage time better (mine and my children), evaluate the gifts and talents the Lord has given me (and my children), remedy emotional strongholds and diligently pursue 'real food' for my family. Thank you Mr. Fundy."
The Stewardship Playbook has convicted me to make some wholesale changes for our family. It will be a tremendous blessing for you as well.
