Easter Sunday book-signing set for OU Bookstoreby Krysten Copeland, PR student writer
Huntsville, Alabama (April 1, 2012) -- In her new book, “Raise a Leader . . . God’s Way,” leadership development expert and Oakwood business management professor Dr. Prudence Pollard offers strategies for raising children and training leaders at every level.
In this 122-page book published by the Review & Herald Publishing Association Dr. Pollard, OU’s first lady and mother of two adult daughters, pairs parenting tips with Godly principles and values for the parent who wishes to raise a leader. Through fun, easy to read, yet insightful tips, she provides parents with helpful ways to incorporate God into their child rearing.
The first chapter, for example, gives an in-depth analysis on how the first representation of leadership the child sees will be from his/her parents and how such representations should reflect Christ-like values.
Subsequently Pollard urges that, while parents should be cognizant of their child’s uniqueness, they should also be mindful to maintain the God-fearing value system in every part of the family life.
Dr. Pollard writes of the value of Christian education, developing one’s child into an “other-centered individual” and showing God’s character upwardly, inwardly and outwardly.
Currently Dr. Pollard, also serving as Oakwood’s Assistant Vice President for Faculty Development, Leadership, and Quality, is a board member of both the Women’s Resource Center and the Bradford-Cleveland-Brooks Leadership Center at Oakwood University.
All proceeds from “Raise a Leader . . . God’s Way” go directly to fund student scholarships at Oakwood University, Dr. Pollard’s alma mater; contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
