Description : All proceeds from this book go to charity. The most important component of God’s plan for humanity was the gift of His one and only son on the cross for the sins of the world. As Christians, the systematic approach we use to present this gift to the sinful world will determine the effectiveness of our role as followers of Jesus Christ. It is very easy to tell someone that Jesus died for the sins of the world but how do you bring them to that place where they can effectively see Jesus as a personal gift designed to save their soul? This book will help you understand God’s unique gift and bring you to that place where you can see the world through the eyes of Jesus Christ.
Description : One common attribute we all share as humans is the fact that whenever there is an important future event, we always make necessary preparations in anticipation of an outcome from the event. We do this with childbirth, graduation from school, marriage, vacation, and death. But when it comes to the second visit of Jesus Christ leading to the End of the Age, we seem to care less about the need for some serious preparations. Before death, we will all come to a point in life when we subconsciously without notice start to briefly analyze our path; where we came from, where we are, and where we honestly think we are going after death. After this unprecedented brief moment, our next step is largely determined by the analysis obtained from the pause. That you accepted Jesus Christ as the son of God is not enough to save you from hell; you must repent and live by God’s law to enter His Paradise in Heaven. Anybody can believe in Jesus Christ; but not everybody can live for Jesus Christ. God made you for a specific unique supernatural divine purpose beyond your imaginable dreams. This book will guide you, restore you, energize you, and move you to that place where you seriously start to prepare to have your salvation completely sealed through him as you successfully live to please God through Jesus Christ. This book is a sequel to “Face to Face Meetings with Jesus Christ”.
Description : A new classic, cited by leaders and media around the globe as a highly recommended read for anyone interested in innovation. In The Innovator’s DNA, authors Jeffrey Dyer, Hal Gregersen, and bestselling author Clayton Christensen (The Innovator’s Dilemma, The Innovator’s Solution, How Will You Measure Your Life?) build on what we know about disruptive innovation to show how individuals can develop the skills necessary to move progressively from idea to impact. By identifying behaviors of the world’s best innovators—from leaders at Amazon and Apple to those at Google, Skype, and Virgin Group—the authors outline five discovery skills that distinguish innovative entrepreneurs and executives from ordinary managers: Associating, Questioning, Observing, Networking, and Experimenting. Once you master these competencies (the authors provide a self-assessment for rating your own innovator’s DNA), the authors explain how to generate ideas, collaborate to implement them, and build innovation skills throughout the organization to result in a competitive edge. This innovation advantage will translate into a premium in your company’s stock price—an innovation premium—which is possible only by building the code for innovation right into your organization’s people, processes, and guiding philosophies. Practical and provocative, The Innovator’s DNA is an essential resource for individuals and teams who want to strengthen their innovative prowess.

Description : The resources of both governments and traditional philanthropy are either barely growing or in decline, yet the problems of poverty, ill-health, and environmental degradation balloon daily. It is therefore increasingly clear that we urgently need new models for financing and promoting social and environmental objectives. Fortunately, a significant revolution appears to be underway on the frontiers of philanthropy and social investing, tapping not only philanthropy, but also private investment capital, and providing at least a partial response to this dilemma. This book examines the new actors and new tools that form the heart of this revolution, and shows how they are reshaping the way we go about supporting solutions to social and environmental problems throughout the world. With contributions from leading experts in the field, New Frontiers of Philanthropy provides a comprehensive analysis of the many new institutions that have surfaced on this new frontier of philanthropy and social investment; the new tools and instruments these institutions are bringing to bear; the challenges that these actors and tools still encounter; and the steps that are needed to maximize their impact. The result is a powerful and accessible guide to developments that are already bringing significant new resources into efforts to solve the world's problems of poverty, ill-health, and environmental degradation; unleashing new energies and new sources of ingenuity for social and environmental problem-solving; and generating new hope in an otherwise dismal scenario of lagging resources and resolve. Investors, philanthropists, social entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, business executives, government officials, and students the world over will find much to build on in these pages.
Description : Your legacy is how you live ... not just what you leave. Family wealth is often emotionally charged, whether you have a small nest egg or financial abundance. Wealth creates unique opportunities and challenges. The greatest challenge is the least discussed: the place where money, values, and family intersect. As the level of our wealth increases, our decisions become more complex and sophisticated. In LEGACY, Dr. Richard Orlando explores the five most important family wealth decisions that directly impact our families and our legacies. Orlando offers wisdom, stories, and step-by-step advice for optimizing these decisions by aligning them with our values, purpose, and faith, in essence, our spiritual capital. These questions are: • How do I ensure a happy and fulfilled life for myself and my family? • How do I transfer my wealth to my children and others I care about? • How do I prepare the next generation in my family for the opportunities and responsibilities of wealth? • How do I best give and share my resources with others? • How do I ensure that my family business (whatever it may be) flourishes? If you have asked yourself one or more of these questions or if you are a professional advisor who has tried to help your clients answer these questions, this book is a must-read!
