Epic Leadership

                                                    ~Walk Humbly~

You are going be be completely amazed when you read about this! If your follow up with some simple research over some of what I am going to write about you will grow so much in your faith in becoming a leader.

I have read 20 or more books on leadership, which has been great for me as a person in direct sales & helping others succeed. Never have I been taught or read about one of the most powerful Leaders in the Bible~ Josiah (2 Kings 22 7 23). A little history before Josiah becomes King, his dad & his grandpa we full bore idolators & Judah was absolutely hugely corrupt.  His Grandpa, Manasseh was an awful King. 2 Kings 21~ the full chapter will give a better feel for how jacked up this guy “this King over Judah” was. You will also discover Josiah father, whom was just as bad as Manasseh~ if not worse. All right there in the 21st chapter of Kings 21.

mark connelyI am so excited for you to learn about our main character Josiah. So let unpack some of what I learned from our Pastor Mark Connelly, as I am sharing what I learned in the past two weeks at Missions Church, Gilbert AZ. You will want to read these scriptures yourself.mission-orange-tag_normal

Who are you influencing or have a leadership role in their life?
Who is it that you are following or look to for guidance?

2 Kings 22:2 States that Josiah followed God completely and “…not turning aside to the
right or to the left.”

As we begin to read parts of these scriptures, you will begin to understand it does not matter where you came from, who raised or what you had to experience as child. You can become all that God has promised in His word….

Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem thirty-one years. His mother was Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah from Bozkath. He did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight and followed the example of his ancestor David. He did not turn away from doing what was right.

Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the court secretary, “I have found the Book of the Law in the Lord’s Temple!”  “Your officials have turned over the money collected at the Temple of the Lord to the workers and supervisors at the Temple.

When the king heard what was written in the Book of the Law, he tore his clothes in despair. Then he gave these orders to Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam son of Shaphan, Acbor son of Micaiah, Shaphan the court secretary, and Asaiah the king’s personal adviser: “Go to the Temple and speak to the Lord for me and for the people and for all Judah. Inquire about the words written in this scroll that has been found. For the Lord’s great anger is burning against us because our ancestors have not obeyed the words in this scroll. We have not been doing everything it says we must do.”
“Leadership is a seed planted; not a switch that is flipped.” What do
you think he meant by that and how do we plant the seeds for good leadership in our
lives?mark connely

Read 2 Kings 22:19 carefully and use it as the background for answering the following
questions:
• Josiah himself was not the one who had set up idols in the land and encouraged
people to worship them; yet, he accepts that he is part of the group of people who
are in trouble even though he isn’t the one “sinning”. When Josiah realized that Judah and Israel had sinned against God, he didn’t blame the people but made himself one of them and repented. From a leadership perspective, talk about blaming others verses making yourself one with the group.• How did Josiah in essence “humble himself”? What specifically do you think he did? What was his attitude at the time?What does this mean and what would it look like in a good leader?

                            “Leadership Is Shared”
Josiah followed God completely with all his heart. If you were to follow God with all
your heart, what would that look like in your life? What would you be doing differently?
Do your priorities reflect someone who is following God completely? What change
could you make this week to move in this direction?
Josiah basically “owned” the sins of his ancestors and those around him and repented of
them. Are there sins of others around you that you need to “own” and repent of? What
are these and what would repentance and humility look like in this situation?
At what level to you allow God to speak to you through the scriptures? If you were
following God completely, what would good habits be in regards to the Bible? Are these
habits true in your life?
Here is the video of Pastor Mark sharing & teaching about Epic Leadership:

Leader’s lead the wayShow the way

Commitment is all in, anything else is just experimentation!

What habit can you form this week to become aligned better with scripture?

Thank you for reading my blog….

Enjoying Life in Marriage ♥

Tonight my amazing husband and I attend a marriage conference at our Church “Missions 68”, it has got to be the most fabulous place to truly learn about the Bible. If you are reading this and don’t like church, check out the video’s on the website: www.mission68.org. You will be blessed by hearing Pastor Mark Connely. 

I really want to share this great experience we had at Pastor Ted Cunningham, from Branson Mo. He and his wife Amy are Marriage enriching speakers, enjoy my notes and grab your sweetie… Its time to make your marriage the best it has ever been…

Ted’s Bio:

Pastor Ted teaching

A Word from Dr. Gary Smalley

Ted Cunningham is my friend, pastor, and trusted colleague. He is passionate, gifted and a quite humorous communicator. I have asked him to join me at my conferences as we encourage couples together. I believe that Ted is going to be a leader and much needed voice for healthy marriages in the next generation.

SPEAKING TOPICS

1 – Enjoying Life and Marriage

Guess what? You don’t have to choose between life and a spouse. You can enjoy both, and at the same time. Enjoying life, marriage and your spouse is possible when you prioritize the relationships in your home. This topic includes honoring marriage (Hebrews 13:4), enjoying marriage (Ecclesiastes 9:7-9), and prioritizing marriage (Genesis 2:24). This topic can be covered in one 35-60 minute session or expanded to 3 sessions. This is the most requested session filled with nonstop laughter. If you only need one session for couples, this is it!

2 – The Four Spiritual Journeys of the Home

Eradicating the kid-centered home begins by prioritizing marriage in the home (Genesis 2:24). The greatest gift parents give their children is a mother and father who love each other deeply, because a great marriage is the single most important parenting tool. To prioritize the spiritual journeys in the home take personal responsibility for your journey, serve your spouse’s journey, model Jesus in your marriage journey for the sake your child’s journey. This topic does not alienate single parents or blended families, but equips them to discover balance in the home and prepare their children for future relational success. 

 

3 – Marriage: Misery or Mystery?

Most couples make three observations shortly after marriage. One, you discover your spouse is selfish and weird. Two, your spouse tells you that you are selfish and weird. Three, you justify the situation with, “Well, at least I am not as selfish and weird as my spouse!” Marriages are called to model the gospel of Jesus. He is the profound mystery and secret to marital success and happiness. “A consumer relationship lasts only as long as the vendor meets your needs at a cost acceptable to you. A covenant relationship is binding and the good of the relationship takes precedence over the immediate needs of the individual” (TKeller). In a covenant relationship you submit to one another out of reverence for Christ (Ephesians 5:21). That is the profound mystery. This session addresses the selfishness and woundedness that prevents us from living out the gospel in our marriage.

– The 6 Levels of Communication

What if your goal was to help your spouse win every argument? What would happen if you made it your priority to understand, instead of being understood? What if your marriage was marked by genuine listening, understanding and validating? This session walks each spouse through the six levels of communication (Small Talk, Facts, Opinions, Feelings, Desires/Needs, and Beliefs) and gets beneath the surface of issues and into the heart (Proverbs 4:23). This session receives the most “I wish we would have heard this years ago” comments from spouses and couples. 

 

5 – From Anger to Intimacy

Unresolved anger is like drinking poison expecting the other person to get sick. Some drink it in sips over time. Others gulp it daily by the gallons. In this session, couples will learn the skills to resolve conflict, hurt and pain. As spouses discover their “hot buttons,” they will learn tactics to deal with feelings of anger, frustration and rage. This session also covers the essentials of forgiveness, keys to nurturing a forgiving spirit, how to craft the perfect apology, and ways to remove the roadblocks to forgiveness. 

6 – The Language of Sex

How often should an evangelical couple have sex? (That is an actual question that was asked on our website.) How creative can we get? Who sets the boundaries in the bedroom? The Church has largely gone silent on the issue. Sex is sacred, yet it must be discussed if it’s going to truly be honored and protected (Hebrews 13:4). God has given us sex as a gift and it’s one to be thoroughly treasured, celebrated and enjoyed. In this fun, practical session, we will answer the question “How can I have the best sex of my life?” We take an honest look at the differences between men and women and find ways to bridge the gap that we can create the security and intimacy that great sex needs to flourish. 

7 – Face to Face(book):
The Effects of Social Media on Emotional, Relational and Spiritual Health

With it’s over 750 million active monthly users, Facebook (along with Twitter) has changed the landscape of human relationships. This one session helps parents, teens, teachers, pastors and mental health professionals examine both the positive and negative impact of social media on our families, jobs and church. 

8 – Trophy Child: Preparing Children For Something Greater than Themselves

I am guilty of showering my children with excessive praise, endless organized activities, too much privilege and not enough responsibility. I am part of a new generation of parents raising trophy children. Vanity parenting exists when parents use the attributes and accomplishments of their children to impress others. Spend a few minutes on Facebook and you will find plenty of examples of this modern parenting trend. This sessions covers parenting motives and the necessary strategies for raising children who love Jesus and others, not just themselves. 

9 – The Lighter Side of Parenting: Creating a Close-Knit Family

Years ago, my mentor, Dr. Gary Smalley, took notice of families that displayed unusually happy interaction among themselves. He intrigue led him to launch a study. The Smalley Relationship Center individually interviewed thousands of wives, husbands, and children separately. Each person was asked the same question: What do you believe is the main reason you are all so close and happy as a family? Each family member gave some form of this answer: “We do a lot of things together.” Close-knit families maximize togetherness and minimize times apart. Families that laugh and play together develop a bond that makes for more success in discipline strategies. 

10 – The Sex Talk: Teaching Your Children about Sex and Sexuality

Who taught you about sex? Perhaps it was your parents for a sit down, one-time “Talk” with minimal details. Was it friends or teachers at school? Maybe you picked up bits and pieces from television sitcoms of the 80’s. Unfortunately, the “Talk” doesn’t work anymore. Advances in technology, accessibility of pornography, and explicit content and innuendo in music, movies and television have exposed our children to sex like no generation prior. 

This Ten great topic have the ability to give you the gift of a greatest marriage you could of every imagined…

I can’t wait to read these books, with my sweet hubby Curt…

Be Blessed & remember to be a blessing,

About The Author: suzanbafford

Have been an entrepreneur all my life, grew up with my family of business owners. Knowing when I grew up I would own my own business as well. One thing that is really important to me is grooming our children for success, what kids learn at home is what they always turn back to when they grow up… A Native of Arizona, born and raised in Flagstaff~~ we are 3 rd generation of the town. Have lived all over the western states and love all of them. My favorite is Seattle, I would love to spend more time in the mountains. The desert is very beautiful, but the hot gets old very quickly… 3 beautiful daughters, 5 grand-babies. My husband is a fire fighter and the most loving, caring man I ever meet in my entire life. He is my dream come true, even after 21 years of marriage. Life is grand and I am super grateful.

 

Enhance Your Personality With 9 Leadership Skills

Today as I was reading the “The 4-Hour Workweek”,

The 4-hour Workweek…
I was pondering why some believe that the Home Business Profession is going to work for the & other never get it off the ground. Which breaks my heart every time it happens… why are their people not willing to open their business and start with consistency.
Realizing that it is:
Charisma! We’ve all met someone who has it, who can, though the sheer force of their voice, their personality — or their leadership skills — simply draw people closer and make them feel good about themselves. Now, some may say that being a people magnet is something you’re born with.

See Yourself as You Will Be!
1. Don’t Reinvent the wheel. Find someone who has what you want, and do what they do. Sometimes, to get a good grasp of a concept, it’s better to learn from other people that have succeeded in the same area you want to succeed with experience. They know what tactics work and what doesn’t. They have learned how to get from point A to point B in the fastest, most efficient, way possible.
2. Learning prospecting and closing. Remember, friends first! Treat prospects like friends, not just wallets. You can use F.O.R.M (Family, Occupation, Recreation, and Message) to get your prospect talking more about himself than the subject at hand if it’s a product or a business presentation. This then gives you the chance to learn about him/her. The focus should be on them and not be “all about you”. People are interested in themselves and they would rather talk about themselves than listen to you try to sell them something.
3. It doesn’t end at the close!You want to invest time into your clients. If you fill a need for your prospect they will fill a need for you. Put more of your focus toward what your client wants and they will feel compelled to help you. In doing this, a client refers your business to other people, giving you more customers and raising your income.

Listen, Read & Grow
4. make your plan and frame your vision
5. seek the skills you need to paint the picture of your life
6. understand how to stick with your plan and never quit!
7. Avoid one blind spot that could cost you big money
8. Create mind-blowing success, starting where you are right now!
9. Multiply your efforts across the board, no matter what your profession!
These 9 Skills are not the usual, I wanted to share some practical events that you can apply daily… Listen to the big Leaders in our profession~ they will have many different skills to add to your skill set.
Become a part of Empower Network, the training is so real, very unconventional… It works, for those of us in the Home Based Profession this is your ticket to making the big incomes…
Let’s connect~

This Is IT!!!

I have been so inspired by Mr. Peck quotes over the last few years. Seems like I read the specific one on the day I really need to understand and absorb the thought or action that is laid out before me!

The first book he published was in 1978 called “The Road Less Traveled”. I haven’t had a chance to read all 14 of his books, as they have such and amazing balance of God with in their entirety. Great man of God to research and soak in a bit of his wisdom & knowledge

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”

~ M. Scott Peck

My overview of (A Road Less Traveled)!!!
There is a day that will come when you will decide enough is enough. In your hour of anguish and frustration, you will make a decision that you deserve better. There is a moment that will speak to you louder than any other moment of your life. “This is not acceptable.” In that moment you will declare, “This is it. I have had enough. I can do more than this. I deserve better than this. I can rise higher than where I am now.” In this moment you will stop coping. In this moment, you will stop minimizing. “It’s not so bad.” In this moment you will see it for what it really is, and you will be ready to take a stand. This is the precise moment that everything will change for you. This is the moment when you prepare for battle. You will look up and finally see your future. You will see your summit. You will dig deep and summon your courage and confidence. You will call upon your drive and determination. You will ignite your passion. You will fuel your will to fight. You will take a stand. You will step out. You will search for the solution. You will make a bold move. You will
conquer your fears. You will break off your bonds, and shatter your shackles. Welcome to your liberation. You are now free. This is it!

This scripture goes great with “This is it”

Just then a woman who had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding came up behind him. She touched the fringe of his robe, for she thought, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” Jesus turned around, and when he saw her he said, “Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well.” And the woman was healed at that moment.

Matthew 9:20-22 (NLT)

USA Gymnast Aly Raisman Reveals Gold Medal Winning Routine Tribute To The 1972 Munch Game Massacre

Today I saw this story on Facebook, it struck me in such a way that I wanted to share with my blog…

During the 1972 Munich Games, a group of Palestinian terrorist kidnapped and killed much of the Israeli team in a highly-publicized ordeal. My family are very big in Sports, so the Olympics are a huge part of our lives during both seasons, Winter & Summer. I was only 12 yrs old when this happen the the Israeli Team, I took it a little bit differently as my best is Jewish & my snow ski instructor was an Olympian distant runner. The games are a part of my being, within my spirit, & I love the movement, emotion & passion the Athletes have. But mostly how it brings some many people from different parts of the world together in HARMONY to do their best & be with so many other’s with a like minded desire to be the best in the world…

Sharing how Aly dedicated her Gold Metal to these men that shared the same passions Aly has for achievement on a world wide level. I hope and pray that the families that had there son, daddy, husband, brother & uncle taken from them on that day in Munich, & are aware of her giving spirit and love for her heritage… Aly Raisman you are a HERO to millions & and an ANGEL to even more ♥

 American gymnast Aly Raisman has revealed the music for her gold medal-winning floor routine at the London Olympics was a tribute to the victims of the 1972 Munich Games terror attack.

The 18-year-old said choosing Hava Nagila- a traditional score used for wedding dances and bat mitzvah – was a response to the International Olympic Committee’s failure to mark the 40th anniversary of the tragedy.

And for Aly, from Needham, Massachusetts, she said it made her gold even more special.

‘I can only imagine how painful it must be for the families and close personal friends of the victims,’ she said.

‘I am Jewish, that’s why I wanted that floor music,’ she told the New York Post. ‘I wanted something the crowd could clap to, especially being here in London.

‘It makes it even much more if the audience is going through everything with you. That was really cool and fun to hear the audience clapping.’

Eleven Israeli athletes were killed during the 1972 Munich Olympic Games in the now infamous Palestinian terrorist attack. Only recently it has been revealed German neo-Nazis helped them.

A campaign was launched by Israeli officials and the widow of one of the victims for a minute’s silence during the opening ceremony but IOC president Jacques Rogge ruled that out.

NBC’s Bob Costas also blasted the decision, saying it was ‘insensitive’ and held his own moment of silence when Israeli athletes marched into the Olympic Stadium.

Aly was shocked when the judges announced her winning score of 15.600 points that made her the first American woman to strike gold in the Olympic floor exercise.

‘That was the best floor performance I’ve ever done, and to do it for the Olympics is like a dream,’ Aly said.

Rabbi Keith Stern, spiritual leader of Temple Beth Avodah in Newton Centre, Massachusetts, where the Raisman family are members, said: ‘She is a focused person.

‘She’s very proud and upfront about being Jewish. Neither she nor her family explicitly sought to send a message. But it shows how very integrated her Jewish heritage is in everything that she does.’
