Lead...For God's Sake!

I received a copy of Lead...For God's Sake! by Todd Gongwer via Net Galley. Steve Rocker, one of the most successful high school basketball coaches in Kentucky's history, is about to enter into the most difficult season of his career. With expectations at an all-time high, his players have lost their will to win and their passion for the game; none of Coach Rocker's tried and true motivational methods are working, and he doesn't know why.

As the season continues to spiral downward and his home life begins to mirror the problems he's facing on the court, Coach Rocker stumbles upon a most unlikely mentor - Joe Taylor, the school's janitor, who seems to have the answers to all of Coach's problems.

Joe helps the Coach turn his season around and reconnect not only with his players, but his wife and children as well. He ultimately helps him realize that his true purpose in life is not to win games, set records, or achieve personal acclaim, but rather to influence others by leading from the heart.

This is a wonderful book that opened my eyes to what it truely means to live. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever wondered why an I doing what I'm doing?
