Much like the men in their lives, Duck Dynasty's five leading ladies are outspoken about their faith in Jesus Christ and their desire to grow God's kingdom by sharing their testimonies with the people they meet. In their new book, The Women of Duck Commander, Miss Kay, Lisa, Missy, Korie and Jessica share never-before-told stories about the Robertson family, and how their reliance on God has enabled them to persevere through life's unforeseen challenges, heartaches and strife.
Within each chapter of the book, the Robertson wives give fans an inside look into their lives when the cameras are turned off and the trials of daily life begin. They also share what they really think about Phil's outspoken demeanor, and open up about the secret behind the family's success.
During an interview with The Christian Post, Missy, who is a co-author of the book along with Miss Kay and her three sisters-in-law, spoke candidly about her marriage to Jase, her relationship with her in-laws, and how they've been able to persevere through the most difficult challenges in their lives. more >>

A Memphis mother got a lot more than Facebook likes and warm comments on the social medium when she posted a glowing picture of her 3-year-old daughter. Reactions from a few friends led to a revelation that her daughter was slowly going blind in one eye.
In the photo, pictured above, Taylor's daughter, Rylee, appears to have a glow in her left eye. While most people assumed that the glow was due to light from the camera used to take the picture, a few friends knew better.
"They said: 'Hey, I'm sure it's nothing. It's probably the lighting, but your daughter's eye is glowing and you might want to have it checked out because it's a sign there could be an issue with her eye,'" Taylor told Memphis, Tenn., news outlet WREG. more >>

A leader of a well-known organization once remarked to me, "I would love to lead us to a better future, but I just don't know where to start…" Another organization's leader told me, "I like where we are right now… but I can't seem to define where we are going very clearly."
I frequently work with organizations led by individuals who have "a great vision." But as I look closer, I see that they are often challenged by an inability to assess their current situation, to know and understand their organization's strengths and weaknesses. On the other hand, I have consulted with organizations whose leaders are deeply rooted in what's happening right now. They can tell you every metric for their business performance. Yet they lack the capacity to articulate a compelling picture of where they are going. However, some of the people working in both these types of organizations suffer stress, fatigue, and burnout – often because they don't really know where they're going or how they're getting there.
This is an issue that plagues many organizations - even apparently successful ones. It's the inability for their leaders to link daily activities between today's reality and a motivating vision of tomorrow. It's what I call "the today-tomorrow gap." more >>
