Book Review: Steward Leadership in the Nonprofit Organization

Today for “Natasha’s Study” I am reviewing the book, Steward Leadership in a Nonprofit Organization, by Kent R. Wilson

Why I picked up this book:

I am now leading a nonprofit organization, Leadership LINKS, Inc., and I want to honor the Lord with the work, as well as the people he has allowed us to serve with and to influence.

Who Should Read Steward Leadership in the Nonprofit Organization:

This book presents a biblical and historical model of steward leadership. When pondering leadership, most Christians first think of the servant leadership model.

Women on Life: A Call to Love the Unborn, Unloved, & Neglected

“Life is important to the Christian because, first and foremost, it is important to God.”

Why I picked up this book:

This week I have the honor of sharing my heart for racial reconciliation and biblical justice at the Evangelicals for Life conference in Washington, DC. In addition to talking about anti-human trafficking advocacy, I will also be supporting the International Justice Mission as they inform a local congregation about the life-changing work they do all over the work to restrain the hand of violence against the world’s most vulnerable, those living in poverty.

My friend, Trillia Newbell, is the Director of Community Outreach for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC). She is also the editor of this work, and the author of the newly released book, Enjoy: Finding the Freedom to Delight Daily in God’s Good Gifts.

Who Should Read Women on Life:

Anyone who wants perspective on what it means to be pro-life in different situations and through different walks of life.

On Giving and Getting in 2016

2016 has been a roller coaster of a year. As I sit here preparing my last presentations and talks for 2016, I am also tying up loose ends from various projects. I always find myself reflecting at this time of year. I am in awe for all the good that has transpired this year, and am overwhelmed with sadness and disappointment from other events that have taken place in our country and in our world. I wanted to take this time to give you a quick update, let you know what is coming, and to thank you for joining me on A Sista’s Journey.

This will most likely be my last post of 2016. If WordPress sends me one of those “End of Year” wrap-ups, I’ll share any interesting information by amending this post.
