Whether you are a counseling, pastor, life coach or just something that is good with listening this is a keeper for your permanent shelf. Basically a text book, this manual breaks things down and answers a lot of question. It is even a valuable tool for someone just curious about what Christian Coaching is. I have to admit, when this arrived on my doorstep (again another one that I say is due to my non committal of a genre) I assumed it was another book about sports. So I put it on the back burner and figured I would get to eventually.
My was I surprised when I realized that this was coaching as in a “life coach”. Oops. Now that I know what this book was for I was interested. Cracking open the beginning of these 400+ some odd pages I was introduced to the Foundations of Christian Coaching followed by three chapters of the Skills necessary. Then there are some more brief sections on an Assessment, Vision and Stategy, Action and Obstacles with lots of lists of goals. Lastly, this textbook rounds off with great chapters of Specialities in Christian Coaching and the Practice. Continue reading

Yes, that’s right… I have already read it! It read it non stop from when it entered my hands. It’s just that fun!!! Romancing Hollywood Nobody by Lisa Samson My review rating: 5 of 5 stars*sigh* Romancing Hollywood Nobody definitely does live up to par with the other Hollywood Nobodies, and in a way it’s better.

In the previous books, Lisa Samson has told some pretty good lessons in between some fabulous teenage humor. Starting with Scotty … Continue reading
