Solid mentors have always been important in my life. God has brought mentors into my life via books. Ken Blanchard, Corrie Ten Boom, Clay Scroggins are just some of my favorites. I wanted to share the list with you. There are Amazon Affiliate links below which will make finding them for purchase easier. There are paper versions and Kindle versions. I prefer paper versions, but I know many of my friends prefer the ease of Kindle. I have also found all of these books at my local library.
When I was looking for a marketing mentor I discovered Ken Blanchard’s company. I fell in love with his passion for people. It wasn’t just about making an almighty dollar. His passion was to build up people in companies and organizations. He had a firm belief that from pouring into people, businesses would thrive. I have taken Blanchard’s concepts and applied them to my personal life as well.
How to Lead when You’re not in Charge posses the question, can you lead when you are not in a position of leadership? And if you cannot lead without authority, do you have any business being in leadership at all? How do you lead when you don’t have the end say. What are you doing with the leadership entrusted to you.

My goodness. All of the life lessons I can tell you I have learned from the Ten Boom family. I am so sorry they had to walk through hell. But, I am so thankful for all the Lord taught through them. I am forever grateful for them. I cannot wait to greet and meet them in heaven. If you are walking a hard road if you are weary and heavy-laden. I would encourage you to enter the home of the Ten Boom family.
This is a book I know I should have read a long time ago. I am still in the middle of it with my family. When I started reading it I realized it was one my whole family needed to dive into together. It asks the question, will you live a powerful life or will you hand your power over to someone else? If you are going to live a powerful life what are some things you can do to help you be successful.
Are you in the middle of walking a road that feels like hell? Do you wonder why your rescue hasn’t come? Can God use you in the middle of your story? Do you have to wait until you are all the way through the dark tunnel? Laura assures us we can be used right where are.

Steal Away Home is a dear, dear friend to me. The sweet nuggets of truth that God is in the deep and dark places with us. The friendship between Charles Spurgeon and Thomas Johnson is inspiring. One man a slave physically to man but spiritually free. Another man a slave to his depression but free physically. How two men change each other’s course in life.
