Leadership is a part of every aspect of life.
Maybe you are a person who leads a team or organization.
Or a parent raising up the next generation of change makers.
As a mentor, storyteller, or coach you may find yourself sharing your experience to help another to overcome obstacles or achieve their goals.
You may also be a volunteer for a cause close to your heart.
Regardless of where you work or play, it is easy to see how you are leading in more areas than you think you are.
Your leadership has influence. That influence empowers people to move forward towards a common goal.

The Story of Leah: When Life Is Not What You Expected It To Be
Sometimes life is not what we dreamed of because of the situations we create. Other times it is not what we expected because of the circumstances into which we are born.
As we travel through The Story of Leah together, you will find that Leah faced this same question. Sometimes Leah’s life was not what she expected because of what others did. Then there were other times when her life was not what she expected because of her own actions. Regardless, Leah’s story is filled with drama.
If you have never studied the story of Leah, Rachel, and Jacob, I think you will be fascinated with the storyline of rivalry, conflict, deception, envy, oppression, and final redemption. But what I don’t want you to miss is how God can take an ancient story and make it relevant to our world today!
I believe that God has chosen you to read this study at this specific time in your life to teach you something.
If you are open to God’s power to transform your life, I promise, life will not be what you expected!
What People Are Saying
Dr. Adrian Popa, Ph. D. – Gonzaga University Department of Organizational Leadership
Gail Johnsen – Leadership Coach/Pastor of Spiritual Formation
It is so easy to read and understand all terms used. Quite often reading a book focused on leadership the content becomes blurry and leaves questions unanswered, often times turning the leader towards the thinking of the author instead of focusing on improving the client and self-improvement.
This book is a guide book that should be read and then kept at desk side for easy and quick reference. It is an easy clear read and makes one look inside to, their own thoughts and style. The activities at the end of each chapter definitely bring the reader to a point of self-examination and improvement or assurance.
Love - love - love – it!"

I enjoyed the places at the end of the chapters to reflect. That is something that I have noticed happening more and more and I for one enjoy it. It allows the mind to relive the previous chapter and thus allowing that information to sink in just a little bit more.
I truly enjoyed the chapter about inaccessibility!!
I truthfully cannot wait to purchase this book in the future. For me, like I stated before, being bi-vocational I found myself being able to relate almost this entire book to my full time job. As the general manager of a busy hotel it becomes so easy to get into the “I can do it so I need to” mentality that I can easily lose the opportunity to empower my employees to grow to their greatest potential!
I am sure that I mentioned this before but I absolutely LOVED the areas to fill in, reflect, have team projects and then reflect. That is something that is rarely found in leadership books these days. I think you did an outstanding job conquering the spiritual and corporate side of leadership!
Well done!!! Can’t wait for it in print!"
