I found a book called" The Treasury of quotes" by Jim Rohn. I was looking through it and I found a few quotes about leadership, and I thought to myself,"wow this really makes a lot of sense.

"The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude. be kind,but not weak. Be bold but not a bully. Be thoughtful, but not lazy. Be humble, but not timid. Be proud, but not arrogant. Have humor, but without folly"

"My mentor said,"Let's do it" not "you do it." How powerful when someone says "let's!"

"A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly, to do well, and to help those who do well to do even better"

"If you share a good Idea long enough it will eventually fall on good people"

"learn to help people with more than just their jobs; help them with there lives"

"In leadership we teach: Don't send a Duck to eagle school,because it wont help. The duck finishes eagle school, sees his first rabbit, makes him a friend.

Those were just a few quotes I found. I did have to read it over a few times but then I got the lesson on what it meant. I had a lot of fun reading this quotes.

The great night

Today Olivia and I both received the renewal of the holy ghost. I am really proud of Olivia, because I felt that she changed. I thanked the Lord when we were finished praying. I know now that she will be different, but in a good way. I can honestly tell you that I never seen Olivia pray like that, and I felt the power of God in the church, I have never felt his power so strong before. I told Olivia that she had changed, and she said "You know what, I felt the same exact thing when we prayed together".

I saw how fired up the church got when I was not praying, and I wanted to be apart of it. When I went to pray with her I saw how adjusted people were getting. I saw pastor walking next to Don, then he shot up right next to Don and started praying with him. I saw everyone reacting to the spirit of God and that's when I walk up to Olivia, and started praying with her. When I started praying I started filling Gods presence in the church.

This morning I was listening to Sis. Sabrina talk about conquering fear, and I really grabbed a hold to what she was saying. She would have us read scriptures from the Bible, about fear, how its not of God but of the devil, and if we get scared, or evil emotions, to pray. I really liked what she taught. I love every one in the church.

Father's day

I know I'm a Little late,but I would like to give a few words to my dad. Here's a poem to my dad I found.=)

Dear daddy,

Dearest Joe Dunn,
Husband and a great daddy
We just want you to know
That you really, truly great.

We love you very much,
And appreciate all you are.
At work you're a true champion,
At home you are a star!

This Father's Day wish is part
Of how we show our truest feelings.
Because when it comes to you
Our affection knows no kind of ceilings.

You're up so bright and early,
At four-thirty every day.
Off to work for all of us,
Dear daddy, that's your way.

'Course lately you've developed
Another talent if you will.
You're learning how to break more wind,
Ain't that a bitter pill!

You bundle with the kids
I think that you're a rock star,
Well, you're NOT - - but I'm still your fan.

You are just the sweetest,
Most adoring man alive.
You're great at lifting weights.
Watching comedy with you
Is always a great laugh.

Dear daddy, sweet husband,
Loving Father, dear old Dad.
Just know your family adores you,
In fact, we love you mad.

And on this Father's Day daddy,
Our wishes are just for you.
A long and happy life,
With lots more laughter, too.

Lats Day Of Shcool !

On the last day of school is the promotion for the 6th graders. What we were suppose to do, is walk down the Isle with our book buddies, first graders, that we mentor. But one thing I did not know was that when we walk down the Isle and HOLD HANDS I was melting down in a puddle, because my book buddy was a boy, and I was the only girl who had a boy. All the other girls had girls,and the guys all had guys. But as I heard before "swim against the current" or something like that.

So as the practices went on I was "swimming against the current" at first I took the phrase seriously and I was doing other stuff that the people were doing! I'm playing around!LOL=) I did follow all the directions, like I had a girl, but my book buddy was running around and he was standing in places he shouldn't be at. I would tell him to stop but he would tell me that he had ADHD. so when we walk down the Isle he would walk to slow or walk to fast. Then we had to practice our song and we would mess up and people would laugh, and then the teachers would get mad.

Then the day came for the graduation and I got as dressed up. My friend came and gave my a ride. When we got there Some people were wearing regular school clothes, but only like 4 or 5. Then the ceremony started. We had to walk over to the first grade class area, and look for our book buddies. I could not find mine anywhere. So we waited on the steps waiting for the ceremony to start. I got paired up with a boy named Tracy and his book buddy, since mine wasn't there. Luckily I didn't have to hold hands with anyone. We sat down, then I saw my book buddy, he was late.

The ceremony started out okay, a girl named Sierra R. sang the star spangled banner, but the music messed up on her, and then they made her sing with no music at all. I was very embarrassed for her. When they were giving out medals for promotion, The Principal couldn't get the medal around my head and bun. Everyone laughed, but it was okay. Then I told her I would just hold it. I got my certificate and sat down. Then we sang a song, "don't you ever wish you were someone else" and the music stopped again, so we sang without and music. The that was the end of the ceremony.

This is a day I will never forget.

My name is Madison,or more known as Maddy.I turned 12 today, and I feel more grown up.
I have a sometimes nice-but sometimes annoying brother.
my mom is the best woman you will ever meet and my dad is a strong believing pentecostal and I look up to both of my parents. my dad helps our pastor(pastor Pryor)like if he is gone or dad preaches or ends prayer meetings on Mondays, but he preaches like a pastor! My mom is a Sunday school teacher, who teaches 8 and 9 yr old. When I grow up I want to be a Sunday school teacher just like my mother.
