Spirit Driven Leader

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.

The HaiThe HaiBy Z Sansoni

Wow! What a weird morning! There is a wispy, twirling fog. This is very strange indeed. It is hardly ever misty this high up on the mountain. Hmmm!

This is Hai Mountain. It is the home of the Hai—a people. It is also the only place on earth where the Hai Berry can be grown. It is such a special berry—useful for heating, dying silks with fantastic colors, as an ointment or salve for itches or scratches and many other applications. It is a very useful berry indeed.

BequestBequest a Poem by Ken Proctor

By Ken Proctor

A year's gone by since last July, when we gathered with the kin,

to celebrate my father's life and to try to honor him,

to rest his last remains up on cometary hill,

to shed a heart felt tear or two... and to listen to his will.

My sister got the china that Mom used on Chrsitmas Day.

The Pig Pen Principle

The Pig Pen Principle By Janet McCarthy

By Janet McCarthy

Pig Pen is a character from the Peanuts by Charles M. Schultz. This poor kid walked through life surrounded by a huge cloud of dust that never seemed to dissipate. I often wondered why his dust cloud never seemed to make navigating through life impossible for him.

Sometimes, when I'm in the midst of difficult circumstances I feel like Pig Pen surrounded by a huge cloud of dust.

ChoiceChoice a Poem by Kyle Burton

By Kyle Burton

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

My Fathers ApprovalMy Fathers Approval by Edward Keebler

By Edward Keebler

Dad sat watching in the stands as my second home run of the game sailed past the left field fence. Our team had just defeated the former Little League champions, and it was my hit that provided the margin of victory. I rounded third base and glanced up, hoping to capture a glimpse of him among the ecstatic crowd that pressed against the fence. My peek into the throng of onlookers lasted only a moment in real time but became a memory that replayed in slow motion i....

Strategic Thinking

Strategic Thinking by Allen Quist

By Allen Quist

The need for strategic thinking became obvious from a tragic story told by a local pastor. "The county condemned our church property to build a wider road! Now we have to move. We have so much of our lives invested here within these church walls. It's like losing an old friend; it hurts. Why didn't we see it coming? Why didn't we foresee what is obvious now? What was wrong with our thinking? Our semi-rural area with scattered …

Funny Bike Story

Funny Bike Story by Edward Keebler

By Edward Keebler

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?
