Spirit Driven Leadership was established to provide leadership training with the theme “hearts touching hearts.” We offered this without cost to a world-wide audience. Soon it was evident that there was also a need for other types of literature developed by our authors to be made available to that same audience. So, currently we provide learning material to adults (ages 13 to 113) who want to be inspired to live a wonderful life and also to develop themselves for leadership roles.
Bill Hybels, pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, south Barrington, Illinois, jumps right into his subject… being sensitive to Spirit lead opportunities in our everyday lives, moments where our paths cross the paths of acquaintances or strangers and the Spirit gives us a nudge that says, "This one. Speak to this one. Listen. Get to know this one."
Too often, according to Bill, we are wrapped up in what he calls …
The question: What is Leadership? What does leadership mean to you? One question asked multiple ways. We went around US Digital Outreach and asked members and leaders of Non-Profits that very question. These are the answers they gave us.
Caught in between war and peace, as I walk the wire of self preservation holding onto gravity with everything in me
On one side rebellion rages like a storm, on the other obedience whispers softly like a gentle breeze calling to set me free
I am breaking to pieces as the walls of my past close in all around, my feet have only this sacred ground to call home
He drew His first breath in a stable where, for generations, men had shut away the sheep, the goats, the donkeys and oxen... perhaps for centuries. And in that breath the dust of mud walls and dung floors, of sun dried hay and sun baked bricks, carried the history of his family, his tribe and his people.
His first breath was strong with the scent of the land: laced with the musky sweat of the beasts, the fetid dung, musty hay... the coppery, rusty-iron tang of his mother's blood, and ...
Hey, look at that. The first star in the sky. Hey, that means I can make a wish and get whatever I want. All right. I wish I might, I wish I may, have this wish I wish today. Uh...I wish for all the junk food I can eat... Okay, where is it? Come on, star! We have a deal here. Now listen, star! Gimme my junk food or I’ll take you to court! I demand what is...
Yes, folks, this is Flash, the roving reporter, here at the scene of what is obviously a civil disturbance. Sir, what is the problem here?
I have been created far inferior to others. The thought came as a shock in high school.
The implication rocked me. God loves me less than others.
My school idolized sports stars and leaders. I developed slowly, performed poorly in classes, and stumbled around the sports field. I did not know why God loved me less but concluded He did. When I evaluated my gifts, abilities, and achievements against those of others, I came up short.
I use to think my life had no value,
All that I have learned and accomplished in music
Was of no use to anyone for anything.
My dreams were over and done,
My younger days of having fun
And riding that wave of success was finished.
I felt bankrupt, shipwrecked and done
Ignoring the rules of hiking can be dangerous. I found that out when I became lost and alone at 7,000 feet while hiking in Yosemite National Park. Though I had initially followed markers and footprints, they had long since disappeared.
I had followed the terrain downward, but it was now so steep and rocky it was difficult to walk. Having hiked for six hours over strenuous trails, I was exhausted. My water supply was low. The sun was cooking me over a slow fire.
One camel said to another camel, “Your master has placed a straw upon your back. Why do you not shake it off?”
And the second camel answered, “The straw is small, and though it itches a bit, it is not a heavy burden and I can bare it.”
The next day, the camel’s master added another straw to the camel’s back. Again, the first camel asks, “Your master has placed another straw upon ...
In 2007, Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman secured "the bucket list" permanently into our mainstream cultural lexicon in a movie by the same name. Two terminally ill men determine to accomplish everything on a long, carefully considered list of things they've wanted to try, or see, or do before they "kicked the bucket" but had never before made the time. Until each of them discovered that time was, for them, running out. So, with list in hand, the two set out to do what they wanted—experience the thrills, view the world’s wonders, enjoy life’s …

After a grueling 50-mile bike ride in record heat along the coast of San Diego, California. My hair is matted to my head, I’m sunburn, dirty and exhausted but it was a grand adventure and I got a good story from the experience.
I had just become acclimated to the fact that I was middle-aged when almost out of nowhere I began to receive unsolicited correspondence from AARP and other organizations that cater to senior citizens. Senior citizen? That’s a moniker for old people, isn’t it? I’m not old. Well, sort of not old anyway.
