An Invitation to Strengthen the Soul of Your Leadership

Why I picked up this book:

Strengthening your soul for leadership book coverA better question would be, “Why would I not pick up any book written by Ruth Haley Barton?” I have several books of hers and use them for “check-ins” with myself, to get a pulse on if I’m running too fast, need to listen more intently, or live more deeply. I read through her books slowly, not because they aren’t good, but because it is necessary for me to do so. Reading this book as been a practice in spiritual formation.

 

Who Should Read Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership:

 

This book is particularly helpful for leaders, especially those who are living fast-paced and full lives. With prayer, inspirational quotes, thought-provoking questions, spiritual practices and scriptures throughout, it centers us on God, gives good perspective, and invites us into a spiritual rich, and physically and emotionally healthy way of being in the world.

Book Review: New Release! “The Dream of You” by @josaxton

Book Review: New Release! “The Dream of You” by @josaxton

Why I picked up this book:

Jo Saxton 1

Jo Saxton is the real deal! I first encountered her online and have watched her lead and champion the voices and leadership of women and people of color long before I read a book of hers (though I had intended to for quite some time). “The Dream of You: Let Go of Broken Identities and Live the Life You Were Made For” is her latest addition (released today). Yay! I’m glad to support anyone who is so intentional about uplifting and making a way for others.

 

Who Should Read The Dream of You:

 

Jo is a leader who is intentional about speaking God’s truth into the hearts of God’s people, and especially to women. Throughout this book, Jo shares her personal story and struggles with identity, and I believe it will encourage any woman who is struggling to find herself (the real you) and her purpose.

 

What’s in Store for You:

 

This is an honest contribution to a much-needed conversation about a woman’s worth and identity. Jo is direct about her own struggles and insecurities. She brings the truth of God’s Word to light through her life story in a very practical and refreshing way.
