    Just What I Needed to Read!

    I meant to just thumb through this book when I first saw it, but the introduction grabbed me and I couldn't put it down.

    Even though I've been in ministry for more than 20 years, this book inspired me to keep pressing on, but more importantly, reminded me of the reason I do what I do...to serve the Lord.

    If you haven't yet built a team, this book won't make you feel discouraged for not having done so, but inspired to do it in the way that Jesus did!

    Thanks, Janet, for encouraging my heart and reminding me, through this book, of the tremendous privilege of leading people.
