One of the things that I struggle with as an entrepreneur is using my theological background to inform my business. This author uses the teachings of Jesus in the frame as a life coach. The illustrations in this book and the fresh applications leave me turning the next page.I am amazed how she bridges the gap between the bible world and the business world.I am hoping that as I reading more of her books that I will be able to emulate some of her techniques and practices.

I picked up "Jesus, Life Coach: Learn from the Best" at a library sale a couple of years ago, and having just read this 2004 inspirational book, I am sorry that I didn't read it right away. Laurie Beth Jones is a wonderful writer, but what really engages the reader are the questions she poses at the end of each short chapter. Answering those questions creates a blueprint for where you are right now on your spiritual path and where you could be, if you seek holiness with Jesus as your guide.

This book by Jones is well worth reading. I gave it to my wife so she could read it and use it as devotional material for her group. Jones takes the thesis that Jesus is the best life coach we can have and coming from a coaching background she is able to give us a lot of help and information.

Some interesting thoughts, some. Although my favorite parts were the questions at the end of the short chapters. Gave me some thinking to do. I think this book was written for the entry level spiritual seekers. Not that I'm some PhD, however . . . Like I said, I liked the questions at the end of the chapters best.

This book is amazing, the author brings you through chapters like Think inside the solutions. Questions to ponder: Are you willing to submit to a spiritual "full body scan" with Jesus? If so, when? Then she gives points to think about, "It is said that we have about sixty thousand thoughts per day ~ most of them random."

A book about your "being" and not your "doing." Practical wisdom on how to live a full life. Beautifully done with vivid storytelling that will leave a lasting impression on you. You will never be the same after reading this book.

This is a great book to read slowly and thoughtfully. Each brief chapter is followed by questions to ponder. I actually wrote my answers in a spiral bound notebook as a way of really engaging the powerful lessons. I read this as a part of my morning prayer and meditation time.

This book was inspirational. By reading this book I was able to concentrate on practical ways that I can be more Christian in my daily life. It also gave me a spiritual basis for pushing myself to do more with my life. I highly recommend this book!

I do love her stuff! Easy to read and you can get quite a bit out of the short chapters. Reads great as a devotional, esp if you are a leader!

This is one of those books that I liked so much, I slowed my reading down. It has short little stories that are thought provoking and easy to read.
