How to Prepare for Future Success by Howard Rich

Stewards educate, equip, and empower others for future success. A test for a leader is how well she prepared her organization and people for success after she is no longer around.  A thoughtful leader will make sure she has a well thought-out and strategically implemented exit plan.  As much as we want to believe we…

Rest is a Weapon By Beth Guckenberger

  Rest is a Weapon: Saying Yes to Still I was asked by one of my pastors to teach one Sunday in a series called “What Jesus Invites Us to.” I readily agreed. Then they said my Sunday would cover “Jesus Invites Us into Rest,” and I laughed out loud. The Struggle to Rest I…
