"I have known Steve Backlund for several decades. His outlook on life is truly contagious. A man possessed by hope and faith, he serves the people of God once again with another great book (Higher Perspectives). A renewed mind is one of the most vital aspects of the Christian walk. Our awareness of how God thinks and views life determines our effectiveness in this world. Dissecting examples throughout Scripture, Steve Backlund and his team challenge readers to recognize the lies that they may be believing and exchange them for the Higher Perspective of how God sees."
Senior Leader, Bethel Church, Redding, California

"Steve is one of the most intentional leaders that I’ve known. He put a hunger in me to be a leader and put the desire in me to always grow. As associate pastor at Bethel, I still constantly pull from my short two year season under Steve in Weaverville and bring that knowledge into the now. I couldn’t be doing what I am doing today without Steve’s leadership in my life."
