Enjoy a restorative session of Yoga or Tai Chi, surrounded by the natural beauty of Wave Hill. Create a strong and relaxed body-mind with physical postures, breath control and meditation during Hatha Yoga on Sunday mornings. Yoga Together provides the perfect Friday morning outing for families. Select Wednesdays evenings enjoy Sunset Yoga. Quiet like a mountain, moving like a river, Tai Chi, held on Saturday mornings, offers a sequence of gentle movements based on images found in nature. For all wellness sessions, please bring your own mat if possible, wear loosely fitting clothing and come with meals well digested. Yoga classes are taught by instructors from Yoga Bliss; Tai Chi is led by Irving Yee, an active member of the William CC Chen Tai Chi School.

Leadership Development expert and Oakwood University management professor Dr. Prudence Pollard discusses her new book, "Raise a Leader... God's Way."

Huntsville, AL  — In her new book, Raise a Leader… God’s Way, leadership development expert and Oakwood University (OU) 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 will go directly to fund student scholarships at Oakwood University, Dr. Pollard’s alma mater.
