The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

"So what's your love language?" This may be a strange question to hear someone ask you if you're not familiar with Gary Chapman's books on The 5 Love Languages. If that's the case, then my book recommendation for July is especially relevant. We all need and want to be loved in ways that are meaningful for us. Not just in a sexual way but also by our family and friends. Gary's original book titled - The 5 Love Languages

21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader by John Maxwell

My book recommendation for June is John Maxwell's 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader. I have used this book with several small groups I was giving leadership training/ mentoring to, which each group has loved. I've just started it with my new BLP (Basic Leadership Practicum) students, and they also are looking forward to the times we look at another chapter. What makes it so successful in doing with a small group is that the chapters are short. Each

The book explores how Danny and the Bethel leadership created their environment of “creating a culture that hosts the presence of God,” which they call a culture of honour. Where they see this key foundational value helped shape what Bethel Church is today. Danny Silk is part of the pastoral team of Bethel Church - Redding CA. He is also President and

The Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson

My book recommendation for April is Bruce Wilkinson’s book - The Dream Giver. I read it when it first came out in 2003 (which I know some of you weren’t born yet, sigh). It was such a great book for me at that time because I was nervously praying about moving to India. Over the years I’ve leant this book to several friends and fellow disciples as a book to help them process their dreams and visions which seem

Cinderella and her Sisters – March’s book of the Month

Cinderella And Her Sisters by Tom Bloomer is my book recommendation for March. Tom is a man who contemplates deeply with God bringing golden wisdom to whatever he's taken the time to ponder on. This book shares several biblical stories to help us explore our true identity in God as well as the authority and inheritance we have as sons and daughters of our heavenly Father. All of us, including guys, have some Cinderella-type issues that we struggle to

Finding Father

My 'book' recommendation for February is Finding Father by A. J. Jones. A.J. has an amazing testimony of surviving a difficult childhood to then discovering God, restoring her relationship with her earthly father and so much more. Her depth of revelation and anointing to help others discover a deep relationship with our Heavenly Father is amazing. So if you struggle with the concept of having a good heavenly Father or want to go deeper in your relationship to understand

Developing the leader within you 2.0

My book recommendation for January is John Maxwell's updated version of Developing the Leader Within You 2.0. Back in 1993 when I was starting out in leadership this book of one of the few which as a Christian leader really covered topic's I'd never thought about in my leadership development. But were so good to help me see the bigger picture of leadership. Some of the topic's I thought John had missed out on (especially Servant Leadership), he's added

Daring to Live on the Edge

My book recommendation for December is Loren Cunningham's book - Daring to Live on the Edge. It's a book all about faith and finances - but so much more! Loren is the founder of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and this book's stories are a continuation of some of the miracles YWAM has seen God do in the earlier years of the mission. Friends recommended we read it as a group together as we wanted to be challenged in
