For years, Rev. Dr. John H. Krahn has been a successful interim pastor whom God has used to save many dying churches. He shares his proven methods for helping churches which are barely surviving to once again thrive. Whether your church is on life support or is doing quite well, From Surviving to Thriving -- A Practical Guide to Revitalize Your Church is a hands-on approach that will assist you and your church greatly. Pastor Krahn has done what he recommends and seen the results of intentional missional ministry in more than one context. Overflowing with good stories and examples of excellent ministry, his comprehensive approach includes getting the church's financial house in order, practicing good stewardship, developing a strategic plan and vision, marketing the church in new and old ways, and developing an evangelism program. Here is a book by a veteran pastor who knows how to revitalize a congregation that is long on hope and short on excuses. Some chapters included Stop Making Excuses and Start Doing Something Get Your Church's Financial House in Order Reclaim Your Inactive Members Reach the Unchurched in Your Community Remove the Roadblocks That Impede Thriving Rev Dr. John H. Krahn has been in the pastoral ministry for forty-eight years. He was pastor of the largest Lutheran church in New York for twelve years with a staff of fifty people. Dr. Krahn earned his Master of Divinity degree from Concordia Seminary (St. Louis, Missouri), his Masters in Education and Theological Studies from Union Theological Seminary, his Masters in Curriculum and Teaching from Columbia University, and his Doctor of Ministry from New York Theological Seminary (New York, New York). Krahn is a professional fund raiser, served as interim pastor at five floundering Lutheran churches, and continues to work as a paid church consultant. He is the go-to-guy in his synod to turn around dying churches, and sometimes refers to himself as the "pastor of lost causes." A much sought after speaker, in 2016, he will be conducting seminars throughout the church on the subject matter contained in this book. He has been married for forty-nine years, and has two daughters and three grandchildren.

This book is for you. May my story give you encouragement and hope as you travel your own journey as a caregiver. Many of us travel this path more than once. There is nothing easy about it. Even on a good day, it's hard. But it is easier when there's a lifetime of loving relationships and good memories before the long-term illness. I was able to thrive because each person blessed my life before the caregiving journey. My story, written as poetry is a record of my spiritual evolution.

Julie Woodley understands trauma. From physical and sexual abuse as a child, to abortion, through the murder of a dear friend, to brain injury and cancer, she's experienced more than a lifetime's worth of pain and loss. But by the grace of God she's doing more than surviving, she's thriving. Like a wildflower thrusting itself through a broken sidewalk, God has raised Julie's joy and hope through the layers of loss and into the light of His plan for her. He has transformed her from a broken receiver of grace into a beautiful blossom who radiates the grace she has received into the lives of other hurting people. Trauma victims often feel weighed down by shame, anger, confusion, and pain. They may be so accustomed to getting by that having passion and joy seems a lost hope. In A Wildflower Grows in Brooklyn, they'll encounter a story that will inspire them to imagine a life restored and overflowing with all the good things God intends for them.

Parenting is filled with lots of wonderful experiences and also with challenges, doubts and uncertainties about the approaches to take with your kids. If you are like I was decades ago when my kids were young, you wonder what your kids will turn out to be. You have dreams of the perfect little angels they will be, not only as they grow up, but also as they become adults. You want the absolute best for them. Perhaps also, there are days of anxiety as you encounter new situations and wonder what the best approaches are to handling them. Should you insist on some things being a certain way, or is there a time to let up and allow your kids some slack? If so, when is the best time? How can you ensure that they grow up to be responsible, contributing members of their communities? Is there a better approach to parenting? And if so, what does it look like? The questions can really go on and on. This book will help you answer many of these questions. It provides a framework from which to practice your parenting based on research and decades of vicarious experiences with tens of thousands of parents and their kids using approaches to parenting that are most effective. It is a compilation of years of observation, research and vicarious data gathered into 101 tips. It also presents a few tips incorporated into lessons learned in my own parenting experiences that will help you incorporate and avoid having to learn those lessons in your own experiences. A practical guide as well as a source of inspiration, you'll find that more than just a few of the tips are focused on activities outside of the home: on the job and in your daily interactions with others. Many are about you and how you show up in the world. Make no mistake, every part of your life is highly interwoven and consequently will also affect what you do at home. The emotions, feelings and habits created in one area have a way of creeping into other areas of your life. Additionally, your children will always model your behavior before they listen to your words. Making it important to continuously grow, empower and enrich your lives. By applying the tips you will become a role model and a positive life-long influence in your children's lives. While nothing can promise well-rounded, perfect kids, using these tips will most certainly provide a much greater opportunity for you to raise your children to be fully functioning, successful kids and adults. There are two sections in this book. Section I is arranged in a random, numerical order which facilitates your reading, while Section II is arranged into categories for your convenience in selecting a topic. They are divided as follows: Parenting and Home Life, Romance and Relationships, Business and Work, Finances, Mind and Spirit, Physiological Needs and Networking and Supporting. Use these tips as needed and make a habit to review them often so they become a part of your daily experiences. I am both delighted and excited to share them with you. Be sure to take advantage of the FREE Bonus offered at the end of the book. It's an online resource with videos and other training to support your implementation.

Centered on the seven Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) Standards developed for school leaders that covers both theory and practice. Using the seven Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) Standards as an organizational tool, the revised seventh edition of The Principal: Creative Leadership For Excellence in Schools continues to provide future school administrators with both the necessary theory and the necessary practical skills to become effective educational leaders. At the same time, the newly updated text incorporates fresh material on modern legal issues, expanded coverage on the topic of cultural and ethnic diversity in schools, and all of the most recent research. With a focus on practical problem solving for school principals and other educational leaders, this text retains its focus on research linking educational leadership and productive schools, especially in terms of outcomes for children. Treating the principalship as a complicated and constantly evolving position that requires a constant focus on learning, instruction, and school improvement, this seventh edition text teaches readers to be moral agents, social advocates, community leaders, and caring individuals.

I have Complex PTSD [Cptsd] and wrote this book from the perspective of someone who has experienced a great reduction of symptoms over the years. I also wrote it from the viewpoint of someone who has discovered many silver linings in the long, windy, bumpy road of recovering from Cptsd. I felt encouraged to write this book because of thousands of e-mail responses to the articles on my website that repeatedly expressed gratitude for the helpfulness of my work. An often echoed comment sounded like this: At last someone gets it. I can see now that I am not bad, defective or crazy…or alone! The causes of Cptsd range from severe neglect to monstrous abuse. Many survivors grow up in houses that are not homes – in families that are as loveless as orphanages and sometimes as dangerous. If you felt unwanted, unliked, rejected, hated and/or despised for a lengthy portion of your childhood, trauma may be deeply engrained in your mind, soul and body. This book is a practical, user-friendly self-help guide to recovering from the lingering effects of childhood trauma, and to achieving a rich and fulfilling life. It is copiously illustrated with examples of my own and my clients' journeys of recovering. This book is also for those who do not have Cptsd but want to understand and help a loved one who does. This book also contains an overview of the tasks of recovering and a great many practical tools and techniques for recovering from childhood trauma. It extensively elaborates on all the recovery concepts explained on my website, and many more. However, unlike the articles on my website, it is oriented toward the layperson. As such, much of the psychological jargon and dense concentration of concepts in the website articles has been replaced with expanded and easier to follow explanations. Moreover, many principles that were only sketched out in the articles are explained in much greater detail. A great deal of new material is also explored. Key concepts of the book include managing emotional flashbacks, understanding the four different types of trauma survivors, differentiating the outer critic from the inner critic, healing the abandonment depression that come from emotional abandonment and self-abandonment, self-reparenting and reparenting by committee, and deconstructing the hierarchy of self-injuring responses that childhood trauma forces survivors to adopt. The book also functions as a map to help you understand the somewhat linear progression of recovery, to help you identify what you have already accomplished, and to help you figure out what is best to work on and prioritize now. This in turn also serves to help you identify the signs of your recovery and to develop reasonable expectations about the rate of your recovery. I hope this map will guide you to heal in a way that helps you to become an unflinching source of kindness and self-compassion for yourself, and that out of that journey you will find at least one other human being who will reciprocally love you well enough in that way.
