LEAD . . . for God'Sake-Book Review

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book for review. However, all opinions are my own.

LEAD . . . for God's Sake! : A Parable for Finding the Heart of Leadership by Todd Gongwer is one of the most powerful Christian leadership books available for anyone who wants to become a spiritual leader. The book is more of a parable than a story. Leaders aren't born, they're molded and this book tells of one such leader in the story of Steve Rocker, one of the most successful high school basketball coaches in Kentucky’s history who learns what a true leader is from an unlikely source: Joe Taylor, the school’s janitor. 

It doesn't matter if you're a sports coach or a factory worker, you can learn a great leadership lesson from this book.

Limitless Life Book Review-#sponsored

Disclosure: I received a copy for review from Book Sneeze. However, all opinions are my own.

Are you going through your life with labels attached to who you are? Do you let labels define your character? All my life, I've let labels define me and shape who I've become. Labels, not matter what they are can make or break you. With Derwin L. Gray's book Limitless Life, I learned that labels aren't who I am. They don't define my character or my life. I learned to break the chains that have bound me throughout my life. This book gives you much more than words on a page, Pastor Derwin Gray takes you on a fascinating journey into what can happens when you offer your head, your heart, and your hands to the only one who can offer you truly limitless life.

Description

Is your life limited by labels the world and other people have used to define you? 
Labels you have internalized and apply to yourself every day. Labels like Afraid. Or Addict. Orphan. Damaged Goods. Failure. Maybe even Religious. These labels might be sewn into your life with such tight little stitches that they feel like a part of you. They feel like they define you. But that’s a lie. If you let Him, Jesus can remove those old labels and tattoo new ones onto your soul. Then you’ll begin to see yourself as God the Father sees you. The limits will be lifted, and your life will be transformed. It’s the truth. Join Pastor Derwin Gray on a fascinating journey into what can happens when you offer your head, your heart, and your hands to the only one who can offer you truly limitless life.

I have to be honest, I'm not a great communicator. If I were graded on my communication skills, I'd make a big fat F. I fail at communication. It's never been my strong suit. Communication has always been my weakness until I discovered Secrets of Dynamic Communication by Ken Davis.

Ken's book opened up a whole new world of communication techniques for me to use. If you're like me and have a hard time communicating, then you have to get a copy of Secrets of Dynamic Communication. This book is filled with practical concepts to use in everyday communications.

I have to give Secrets of Dynamic Communication 5 stars and 2 thumbs up. If you have one book in your collections be sure it's Secrets of Dynamic Communication.
