What others are saying…
“This book is more than Roger’s story. It’s more than just memoirs of the journey. It’s a guide to rethink your choices, to refocus your steps and help you master the art of managing change. This is a book for fathers, it’s a book for leaders and a must read for those who are tired of the same old, same old. I highly recommend it.”
-Jim Wideman, speaker, author, Stretch
“The book is so great! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and God spoke loudly to me concerning some “jump the track” opportunities in my family’s world. I think lots of people will really relate to the tracks you have jumped.”
-Jenny Funderburke, Minister to Children, Westwood Baptist Church
“Ever thought about jumping off the track you’re on and starting down another? Every leader faces these questions. In this book, Roger does an amazing job sharing his story and challenging leaders to boldly go where God has called you to go. Be warned: Once you start reading, it will be hard to stop!”
-Ryan Frank, Executive Editor, K! Magazine

-Karl Bastian, Children’s Pastor, writer/contributor, president of Kidology.org

Quotes from Jumping the Track
- My track, not my goals, determines my destination.
- I was learning that participation is woven into the fabric of life. From the get-go God arranged things so that people would have to participate in the adventure of life. Once born into this world you are—by default—a participant.
- Sometimes you can put a square peg in a round hole, you just have to push a lot harder.
- But now it was different. It was MY girl who was dying. So I was willing to try anything, including dumping my God-limiting theology.
- I have traded predictability for wonder and adventure. I don’t have the luxury of lying in bed with the assurance that my life is mapped out, but instead I lie in bed wondering what new ideas, direction or solutions tomorrow might bring. Predictability was a casualty when I jumped the track. I had to learn to live without it.
- Apparently, I drank nearly a quart of Super Bloom.
