How to Lead a Small Group
So how do you lead a Bible study? While there are many resources out there that teach you how to lead a Bible study, I have written some specific directions to lead the studies I teach. However, you can edit this to fit any study you might lead.
Some quick things to think about before leading a study are:
• Be sure to pray/plan ahead of time
• Send your homework, materials, reminders out so folks are prepared for when you meet

Influence and Authority by Leadership Expert, Cheryl Scanlan
Power in leadership - we've all seen it done well and done poorly. There is something about the catalytic effect of power on leadership that creates a wealth of energy and fuel for dynamic change and growth or causes sparks to fly without order and semblance. The latter creates nothing but unnecessary fires that need to continuously be put out, sapping the company people resources. Leveraging power to ignite your company for its intended future targets requires understanding two types of power which, handled well, will unleash that untapped potential your business currently holds.

Well he broke up with me, and a week later he was plastered all over social media with a girl he just literally met.

The Value in Waiting After A Relationship Breakup by Vicki L. Olton
The Bible tells us in the book of Isaiah: "“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31 *KJV)
When I read this Scripture back in 2013 my eyes were opened. That was not the first time I read the Scripture, but it was at that point that the Scripture really hit home because of what I was experiencing at the time.
