Favorite quotes:

1. I felt like God was telling me it was time to stop leading worship and singing and start writing a book. And, for me because I did all the work ahead of time with my blog—I had spent years building a tribe of people that were used to reading what I had to say, that wasn’t going to be a hard transition for them. But, for me, it was scary. How in the world was I going to do the speaking and the writing thing?

2. I feel like a lot of worship leaders come up to me and say, “I think I want to do something else.” I always say, “Awesome. How have you been building into what that next thing is? That is what you are going to need to do right now and it’s going to take a little time.”

3.  My father said to me, “Carlos, I’ve watched you your entire life clean the cobwebs of sin. You can no longer clean the cobwebs. You must kill the spider, the root of your behavior.”

In this episode I answer these questions:

1. I saw you taught on “mom guilt” for Mother’s Day. Can I watch the sermon anywhere and can you share some wisdom from it? (47:33)

2. What version of the Bible do you use? My church uses NIV and NLT and my Bible Study uses ESV. I want to make sure that I’m using the right versions and I trust your opinion.  (55:40)

3. Did you have a mentor who taught you how to communicate professionally from the stage and on your show? (57:15)
