Diamond of Life
Written by: Mick Owens
Baseball – America’s favorite pastime – is seldom viewed as a metaphor for personal and professional development. However, for baseball enthusiast and coach turned entrepreneur/financial advisor, Mick Owen, life is best viewed through the lens of a baseball game. In the Diamond of Life, Mick uses his own personal life story to help us understand the importance of each base – how to move from first base to make life’s home runs without striking out. The point that Mick brings home in this practical yet spiritually insightful book is that not all bases are equal. And without the proper foundation on home base, it is hard to achieve sustainable, long-lasting success in other bases. Whether you are a baseball fan or not, this book will challenge you to consider how prepared you are to make life’s home runs without striking out.

Written by: Glenn Repple
“Fraud” is a powerful accusation of the enemy – and the title of Glenn Repple’s new book based on his popular “Fraud Fighter” 40-day series presented in his The Repple Minute® daily devotional series. “Fraud” – as defined in the dictionary – is an “intentional perversion of truth in order to induce another to part with something of value or to surrender a legal right.” Glenn describes the greatest “Fraud” ever perpetrated as the one attempted, in the Garden, to fraudulently steal mankind’s purpose. Glenn presents our destiny as to be in the family of God, as a beloved child of God, whereby God already had a plan to undo the work of the enemy. He makes the case that Jesus Christ is the way back to our original value, purpose and destiny.

Inside the Executive Mind
“Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.” – Exodus 18:21 (NKJV)
What does it take to qualify as an executive? Passion, determination, stamina, anointing, education, or is it all this and more?
The truth is, in today’s age anyone can be their own boss. Being a boss differs from being a true executive. A boss can be seen as a manager and an executive can be viewed as the person in charge of executing strategy and fulfilling the vision of the company owners. As a Biblical Executive, you accept the responsibility of developing and executing divine strategies to benefit the kingdom of God.
