In an Ark with the Animals on a Rainy Day:
Leadership Lessons Learned from Noah
You think of yourself as an ordinary person. That said, you can be a leader and make a difference in other people’s lives. Yes! You absolutely can!!
God calls many types of people to lead and to succeed—you have the necessary qualification. You need only follow Noah’s historic voyage in an ark filled with animals to discover how timeless, simple leadership principles will enable you to become the leader that God has called you to be. Noah’s leadership will inspire your own.
The account of Noah in Genesis, with references to other biblical leaders, In an Ark with the Animals on a Rainy Day will identify and develop your potential as a Christian leader. Author, educator, and Christian leader, Dr. Cherry Johnson, EdD, uses fun, easy-to-follow animal themes to show how you will become stronger in your leadership abilities and make a positive impact on those around you and, more important, on the next generation.
God challenged Noah to construct a boat that seemed impossible to build. How did Noah, not a sailor, but an ordinary man, not only build that boat, but organize and lead the historic voyage that saved the human population and all of the animal species of the earth? He succeeded because he understood, modeled his actions on, and practiced biblical principles of leadership. This book is a “here’s how” that honors God with the unique retelling of a story we all know so well, but today has new meaning and new use.
Dr. Johnson, who lives with her husband and family on a farm in the rolling hills of central North Carolina, near Raleigh, knows about the animals she writes about. Much like Noah, she is a community leader who recognizes and sees to her responsibilities in the daily needs of her charges.
