Woman Alive

A monthly magazine for Christian women

This is a lovely magazine with a range of interesting articles which are both down to earth and inspiring. Seasonal features, including a monthly prayer, craft activities and recipes, provide something for everyone. The magazine also keeps you up to date with new CDs and books as well as events such as conferences and tours. Subscription deals are regularly available – it would make a great gift!

 

Although aimed at leaders (in the widest possible sense) within the Church, this is book is an enlightening read for anyone who feels they have something to contribute. The first part of the book explores the concepts (and realities) of the hierarchical leadership model, known as the institution-centred Church, and also the opposite, convincingly put forward by the authors, which is the person-centred Church. The second part of the book focuses on how to lead in a person-centred way. Lightly peppered with recognisable quotes from people such as Stephen Covey and Albert Einstein, the model and guidance can also easily be applied to virtually any workplace.

Towards the end of the book we are invited to ponder being 95 years old. We are asked to imagine sitting in a rocking chair reflecting on our life with a sense of satisfaction and achievement. What would that life look like, we are asked? And what do we need to do between now and then to try to achieve it?

Both inspiring and thought provoking, this book is both a ‘nudge’ and a warm embrace of encouragement to release the potential in ourselves and also in others.
