Item description for Jesus, Life Coach: Learn from the Best by Laurie Beth Jones...
Overview There was a time when only athletes had coaches. Now, everyone from CEOs to at-risk youth are being "coached." The International Coaching Federation-which began with only a handful of people-now boasts membership of over 5,000, and currently more than 150,000 people call themselves "Life Coaches." The benefits of coaching have been well documented, but having the right coach is critical.
Jesus had only three years to train the twelve disciples, yet in that time he managed to turn this ragamuffin group into "lean, clean marketing machines." Divided into four critical sections-Focus, Balance, Productivity, and Fulfillment-Jesus, Life Coach, now in trade paper, presents a faith-based coaching program with Jesus as the model. Delving into the principles Jesus used to transform those around him, the book offers proven strategies and countless applications for modern-day coaches.
In the game of life, only one Coach will do.
Best-selling author, Laurie Beth Jones takes her uniquely passionate brand of motivational writing to a new level and lays out a faith-based program to get your whole life in shape―with Jesus as your personal trainer.
This is your playbook for success―a wealth of information and inspiration that will motivate you to excel in and enjoy all walks of life. Jones, a coach for some of today's leading CEOs, uses her skills and experience to get you thinking, working, and achieving all your goals and dreams.
The secret to success can be found, she says, in the most successful man who ever lived―a man who changed the world like no other. And by using Scripture and thought-provoking questions, Jones will show you with practical instructions how to get your life in high gear―at home as well as at work. So don't be left in the stands just watching the game of life when you can become the star pitcher, the starting quarterback, your team's most valuable player.

We Can All Benefit from Having the Right Coach Jan 18, 2007
Laurie Beth Jones does an excellent job of sharing real wisdom to those who are open or seeking. If you want to be the best you have to learn from the best and she's picked the right individual to emulate. From carpenter to savior Jesus first transformed himself, then the world. We like Jesus have the same ability if we are open to renewing our mind in truth. Having life abundantly is no accident. Each of us needs a guide. As a new believer I'm thankful for people like Laurie Beth. In this age of heightened anxiety and turmoil having someone to guide us in our daily journey is a true blessing.
This book encourages Thinking - Questioning - Asking Tough Questions - That's Coaching! Nov 18, 2005
I really enjoyed the book - read it through once underlined points to remember. Now I am going back and reading again the highlights. I like it even better, the second time through. Miss Jones' writing show passion. A man or woman, anybody who acts on the truths in this book will see change. That's what Coaching is about, Forward Change, not dwelling on the past, but learning, not dwelling in it. I am a man and enjoyed it greatly.
Not for guys or non-businessy people! Oct 28, 2005
When I saw this book, i thought it was a good book for me. but when i began to read it (after i bought it), i noticed something that i hadn't before: this was a woman's book. and not only a womens book, but a businesss womens book. i am not a woman, nor am i a business person, so i couldn't relate to the author AT ALL. So, I wouldn't recomend this book to boys, guys, or men; nor would i recomend it to women that can't relate to business-type stuff (which i can't). i feel bad that i wasted my money on a book written for the oppisite sex, but oh well... it was bargain price! My ratings is innaccurate for the appropiate adience of this book, though...
God bless Laurie Beth Jones... Oct 12, 2005
...for without her, I never would have known that Jesus spent time working as a CEO in the boardroom, and that he also loves to listen to Neil Diamond (sounds ironic, doesn't it?) while wearing his acid-washed levi's. Yep, CEO's, blue jeans, and now we learn that Jesus also loves to coach. Sports teams, obviously. What's his favorite? Well, Ms. Jones doesn't give it away that fast. She's smart that way. She waits until the end to reveal that Jesus actually favors the scrum of rugby. Amen to that. God bless her.
Devotional Book For Christian Career Women May 11, 2005
The value of "Jesus, Life Coach" all depends on what you're looking for. If you are a career woman looking for a devotional book full of interesting stories and practical life application you are going to be thrilled with this one.
If you are searching for a guidebook to assist you in coaching people or nuts and bolts instruction on life skills development, you are going to be very disappointed.
I was looking for the later but have based my rating on the former. Laurie Beth Jones proves to be a very good devotional writer for today's Christian career woman.
