No Jerks on the Job by Ron Newton

Focus: Pursuing character in the workplace

Though this is not a Bible Study, this book approaches workplace problems through biblical insight. In No Jerks on the Job, leadership development expert Ron Newton uses a surprising source of insight--juvenile delinquents--to show you how to rescue your workplace from today's most crucial business problem: adult brats! Newton masterfully connects real-life patterns of troubled adolescent behavior to similar problems in business. Lessons Newton learned from years of running a rugged wilderness camp program for troubled youth provide a powerful solution to overcoming the problems caused by value-challenged managers and employees. No Jerks on the Job is an indispensable resource for managers, supervisors, coworkers, and anyone else dealing with workplace brats.

Hi, I'm Melanie Newton. Jesus Christ has purposed me to help women learn how to study the Bible for themselves and to grow their Bible-teaching skills to help others walk joyfully with Him! I think it’s always the right time for a Dr. Pepper, that my family is the greatest, and being outside for even a few minutes is a daily necessity.

Because of God's grace, it is my joy to be able to provide free Bible studies for women and other downloadable resources on this website. If you’ve just start working through one of my studies, hooray! I hope you enjoy it and fall fresh in love with Jesus. Life cannot be any better than knowing Him!

"As the Curriculum Coordinator for [our women's Bible study], I can only tell you how difficult it is to find inductive studies that empower women to explore God's Word on a daily basis for themselves.  Your style of study is exactly what we are looking for! This past year we completed your study, ‘The Walk From Fear to Faith,’ and the 120 ladies who participate were so very blessed by the study. Thank you so very much." (Jennifer in MA)

I want to thank God for leading me to your websight. I am looking so forward to your Bible Studies. We have the same beliefs. And our God is truly Awesome. (Teresa)

 I am so excited about your materials! I am very selective in what curriculum we use for our ladies' Bible studies and have grown to dread the search for the next season. I generally find "fluff" that is based on feelings rather than sound, biblical teaching with good application questions. Finding your website was a direct, immediate answer to prayer. Thank you! I am encouraged!!!! May God continue to bless your ministry as you seek to further the spread of the Gospel and make disciples. (Bonnie from California)

Live Out His Love is an outstanding study and we are have a great time in learning and fellowship with it.  Thank you for all your knowledge, time, and energy in compiling this work.  It is AWESOME! (Mary from Kentucky)

Melanie, just a quick note to let you know how much I am enjoying Radical Acts.  I chose to study Acts this summer as I just finished John and will be studying Romans in the fall. Your questions are spot on and I really enjoy the scriptural insights and the Your life Adventure sections.  The lay out works great for me and find that it's just about the right amount of time, in other words I don't feel overwhelmed.  I am just beginning lesson 10. Thanks again for offering this for free on the Internet.  (Marsha)

Oh my! These studies are BRILLIANT! Choose which one most applies to your current situation or and area that you want to learn more about, print, pop into a binder and start digging into the Word! I have just finished 'To Be Found Faithful' a study of 2nd Timothy. How good it is to be immersed again in the Word - for myself, not just when the girls and I do our Bible time in the morning, but for me! My next one - which I am printing out right now - is Everyday Women, Ever Faithful God. These wonderful studies give the historical background and insight into what what happening at the time, gets you digging deeper for the meaning by answering questions around the scripture and thinking on application. This type of study works so well for me. (Shirley)
