Leaders

Why failure is part of success!

Facebook has become very kind, nowadays they are sending reminders for the anniversaries of any big event. This past Sunday, I got a reminder for one of the Facebook posts I made on the first Lapid Leaders Seminar. It’s now officially a year since we held our first seminar, and has God been faithful or what! But what this post brought to my mind are the many untold stories of how it has not been a rosy journey. It reminded me of the drama leading up to this event. (more…)

Tough lessons from Lapid Leaders

It is 7.30am. Only one of the attendees to the Lapid Leaders seminar is seated and rearing to go. That’s not too bad. We are African timers afterall right? Up until its 830, the official starting time of the seminar, there are only 5 people in the room. 5! This is sad as it gets, where are the 20 something people that had indicated they’d come for the seminar? I want to scream. A give myself a pep talk; perhaps traffic was bad, they will be here in a short while. I check my phone for missed calls several times; perhaps the attendees got lost and are attempting to reach me on my cellphone. But wait, there are no missed calls. Its 845, we are now 7. Time for a corner room discussion with God. (more…)

I know you love him…..but let him go

I met this really hot guy. He is everything I ever prayed for. He speaks to my heart in ways I did not think possible. He seems to know the things I like, naturally. And when he speaks, well, I stand no chance. He is a dream come true, an answer to a prayer I have made for so many years. I had given up on meeting him; I had decided he would be a prayer request for many years to come. So meeting him was a pleasant surprise. To find that we connect at such emotional levels was a bonus. How lucky can a girl get? Excitement is an understatement to what I felt as I interacted with him. (more…)

An aborted vision

Every once in a while God speaks a word that burns at you and you cannot keep it to yourself. This is one of those days. I recently listened to Bill Haybel talk about courageous leadership. You have to listen to this; it is mind boggling; the video is on YouTube. As I listened to this video, I could feel mu mind being freed. I realized that the greatest enemy to every single dream God has ever given me, and I bet you too, has always been my mind. It is amazing that the mind helps us do such great things; build houses, invent computers, set up businesses, run ministries, be great at our workplaces; yet this same mind if allowed will be the same reason we do not step into what God calls us to.
