OUTSTANDING RESOURCE! Dec 17, 2001
Tim Elmore is one of the finest yet-to-be-discovered leaders in the areas of Church Ministry,Discipleship and Leadership having a worldwide impact. Mentored by Dr. John Maxwell in the 1980's while both were on staff at Skyline Church,San Diego CA, they currently share ministry teamwork through Dr. Maxwell's INJOY organization based in Atlanta.
Tim has written several prior books, including the excellent Soul Provider. He is highly sought out as a discipler of church,
ministry,missions and business leaders. He writes and speaks with passion,expertise, yet humble acknowledgement of his true source of insight: the Lord Jesus Christ through Biblical principles.
This book takes a step back from church/business leadership and asks "How are things at home?" If the successful principles that are so effective outside the home are valid, how much moreso when applied to identifying the next generation's leaders: our kids!
Weaving many practical principles with real life anecdotes and down-to-earth illustrations of how Leadership works in his own household, Elmore helps us identify leadership traits/potential residing under our roof in the yet-to-be-developed young lives of our kids. He recognizes that God has given us our children as our most valuable resource for impacting this and future generations; how much more should we invest in them what the Bible teaches about "Train a child in the WAY HE/SHE SHOULD GO", not necessarily the way we as parents may mistakenly think they ought to go in terms of temperament,gift/skill mix,personality, individual potential,etc.
Excellent reading,hard to put down, and immediately applicable. Ideal as a gift for anyone with kids who wants to help them develop their fullest potential and be all that God lovingly, individually,uniquely,wonderfully created them to be and BECOME!
