God can...


I want to thank BookSneeze for giving me an opportunity to read this book and provide an honest review. And, to be honest, I prefer scripture-packed books. Also I was disappointed  in the role she took, taking the man's place.Who are you? And who has God called you to be? These are the questions posed by this author, Jenni Catron. 

There are some common traps which short-circuit our clout. Jenni discusses seven clout killers and teaches us through scripture how to avoid these traps:

- Confronting Fear
- Putting a stop to comparison
- Understanding the Impact of Jealousy
- Squeezing Out Scarcity
- Identifying Insecurity
- Purging Pride
- Relinquishing Control

She doesn’t stop there. She goes on to share how we can cultivate our clout, making the most impact in our area of influence:

- Discovering Your Identity
- Developing Your Confidence
- Defining Your Mission
- Determining Your Passion

First off, let me say, I love books that are practical and easy to read. Books that cut straight to the point and allow for you to apply the knowledge that you are gaining easily without complexity

Even though I did not love all of it I was glad to have read!

Book Description

You have clout. Have you discovered it yet?
It is easy to believe that power, influence, and leadership are gifts given to a special few. But the Bible says otherwise.
We all long for significance, even as we fear we will never be good enough. We listen for God, but hear only voices of doubt and practicality. Listen again. There is a call that only you can answer.
Clout is power and influence. It is an undeniable trait that opens doors and moves mountains. You have it, and you can use it to change the world around you. With Scripture and stories from her own life, Jenni Catron maps out the pitfalls and clear paths on the way toward discovering and unleashing your very own clout.
This is not a quest of power for power’s sake. Influence is not a guarantee of fame or fortune. It is an opportunity to use your gifts to do the extraordinary. This is a journey toward dismantling what stands in the way of your influence and leadership, discovering your God-given clout, and using it to answer God’s calling on your life.
Learn about Jesus and others who sought to lead like him. Stop dreaming and start planning. Define your direction, set your goals, and confront the challenges that stand between you and the person God made you to be. Step into your sphere of influence with the humble confidence of Christ.
Don’t hide. We need you. Discover your clout here.
