I am thrilled to be able to introduce you to a brand new book that I am crazy about! It is hot off the press and ready to be your guide through the sometimes messy world of leadership! If you are a woman in a leadership role in the Church, then undoubtably, you have experienced the highs and lows, the maze of feelings, emotions, and thoughts that can bombard you, making or breaking your effectiveness as leaders!
Jenni Catron and Sherry Surratt are no strangers to leadership. They are both strong and seasoned leaders who have co-authored Just Lead! A No Whining, No Complaining, No Nonsense Practical Guide for Women Leaders in the Church. This book is warm, personal, and full of stories, both their own, as well as those of other women leaders! It will bring you encouragement, bolster your courage, and inspire you to step out and step up in your areas of influence!
Here is a little excerpt from the book to give you a glimpse into the heart of these ladies and what they have in store for you:
“Just Lead! is the conversation we would have with you if we could sit down over a cup of tea or coffee. There is much we could share: the joys and pains that we have felt as women leaders, the struggles and successes that we’ve experienced, and the lessons we wished we could have learned though others rather than learning the hard way….we believe in you… in your gifts, calling, and purpose as a leader. We believe God has placed you where you lead and wants you to thrive there… Our prayer is for this book to be a source of encouragement and hope when you find yourself in the challenging moments of leadership. We hope that you will be inspired to Just Lead!”
