Books Description:

Taylor Tippett, known as the flight attendant who leaves encouraging notes on passenger windows, shares how readers can find encouragement and meaning amid the brokenness of this world as they learn to recognize the magic of small moments, the power of everyday kindnesses, and the beauty found in every person's unique story. A few years ago, Taylor Tippett was going through a rough season of life, feeling alone and discouraged, when she had a moment of clarity: everyone needs to know that they are not alone in the midst of their hardships. So, as she sat in the back of a Boeing 737 journaling, she wrote "be kind to yourself" and then hung it on one of the passenger windows. What started as a personal project to uplift others became a viral sensation as she started writing more notes--and #wordsfromthewindowseat was born. Now, in her first book, Taylor shares stories of her travels, daily life, and interactions with people of all kinds, anchoring each chapter around a note she's left on a passenger's window. She offers her unique perspective on how kindness, courage, and being your authentic self can create opportunities to share a little everyday magic and encourage those around you. With charm, inspiration, and plenty of whimsy, Taylor reminds readers that even in the middle of so much darkness and brokenness, it's possible to make a difference and share your unique light.

Books Description:

Is it possible for church leaders to use biblical and secular leadership concepts in a way that keeps Christ—not the marketplace—at the center of their mission? Drawing on biblical material and business wisdom, In Pursuit of Great AND Godly Leadership explores the critical leadership decisions and practices that shape the success of Christian organizations. These decisions are illustrated in compelling interviews with over forty leaders of churches, universities, denominational bodies, and international ministries. Mike Bonem leverages his background as an MBA-trained manager and an experienced church leader to bridge the gap between the analytical and structured world of business and the faith-driven approach that is essential for healthy churches. Written to offer practical solutions for senior pastors, executive pastors, key laypeople, and leaders of other Christian entities, In Pursuit of Great AND Godly Leadership clearly shows the ways that secular practices can be imported into their organizations. Bonem addresses a variety of topics such as planning, finances, personnel management, measurement, team dynamics, and organizational change. In doing so, he points to the AND that every spiritual organization should strive to achieve.
