by John Trent
Do you often evaluate your life and assume you should be in a different place by now? Most of us are doing many things well, but we keep missing our goals and destinations. Heartshift suggests that if we adjust just two degrees in our direction, over time, we will find ourselves much closer to our goals and content in our profession, homes, health, and our walk with God.

Andy Stanley provides a great tool for anyone who desires to improve his or her ability to lead the next generation into living for Christ. The material in this book will not only challenge the reader to personal leadership but will also equip him for the monumental task of training the leaders who will one day replace him.

This book will help to produce excellent leadership qualities in the life of the reader and should find a place on the bookshelf of every Christian leader today.
Thinking for a Change
by John Maxwell
Have you ever thought about “thinking?” I never “thought” much about it until I picked up a copy of Thinking For A Change, 11 Ways Highly Successful People Approach Life and Work by John C. Maxwell. Maxwell says, “Successful people think differently than unsuccessful people.” He identifies eleven types of thinking such as “Big-Picture Thinking,” “Focused Thinking,” “Creative Thinking,” and “Strategic Thinking” that successful people employ. He admits that real thinking is difficult when he quotes Albert Einstein who says, “Thinking is hard work; that’s why so few do it.”
Whether you have some important decisions to make or struggles and challenges on your job, Maxwell can teach you how to intentionally think about it. He says, “Good thinkers solve problems, they never lack ideas that can build an organization, and they always have hope for a better future.” Let’s all put on our thinking caps and try Thinking For A Change.
