Praise for Leadership by Light

  • Millennials have been raised to believe the “sky is the limit.” With greater aspirations than any generation before, the right knowledge and tools will help them lead lives of significance. Leadership by LIGHT provides an innovative, step-by-step way to identify who God has designed them to be and to equip them with the skills needed to serve with wisdom and purpose.

  • This book gives 20- and 30-sometings the guidance we need to live a balanced life. Leadership by LIGHT provides practical and easily accessible tools, coupled with faith-based principles, to make a whole and complete self.

  • I loved reading Leadership by LIGHT because it empowered me to work toward my goals while considering God and faith in ways I do not often hear in my community. It was packed with good information while also being concise and easy to read, which is perfect for my busy Millennial lifestyle!

    Kathryn Wickman

  • What if somebody figured out how to write a short book that was jam-packed with principles that would help you accomplish your God-given dreams in life? What if it also showed you how to keep your dreams aligned with your gifts and abilities, and in tune with Biblical principles? What if that book were specifically designed for Millennials, but was crafted so that others could benefit immensely, regardless of faith or age? Imagine, too, that the writer accomplished all this while using clear and succinct language, inspiring examples, and maintaining a perspective that’s both realistic and practical. Could anyone write such a book? Steven Hitz has, and has done it superbly. Leadership by LIGHT deserves a very wide audience indeed.
