"I think Clout is one of the best books I've ever read and I want others to know about it."
~ Patrick Lencioni, president, The Table Group; best-selling author, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and The Advantage ~

You have clout.
Have you discovered it yet?

Discover and unleash your God-given influence.

about the book

We all long for significance, even as we fear we will never be good enough. We listen for God, but hear only voices of doubt and practicality. Listen again. There is a call that only you can answer.

Clout is power and influence. It is an undeniable trait that opens doors and moves mountains. You have it, and you can use it to change the world around you. With Scripture and stories from her own life, Jenni Catron maps out the pitfalls and clear paths on the way toward discovering and unleashing your very own clout.

This is not a quest of power for power's sake. Influence is not a guarantee of fame or fortune. It is an opportunity to use your gifts to do the extraordinary. This is a journey toward dismantling what stands in the way of your influence and leadership, discovering your God-given clout, and using it to answer God's calling on your life. 

Learn about Jesus and others who sought to lead like him. Stop dreaming and start planning. Define your direction, set your goals, and confront the challenges that stand between you and the person God made you to be. Step into your sphere of influence with the humble confidence of Christ.


"You have a specific purpose, a calling, that only you are qualified to fulfill."


I never thought of myself as a leader until one day my small ministry wasn't so small any longer. Since the people I lead deserve to be led well, I knew I had to get intentional about reading great books to equip me. Clout is a wonderful resource for learning to lead from a placeof security and surrender. Jenni helped me understand the necessary balance between these two principles so I can walk confidently in the clout entrusted to me and honor God in the process.
~ Lysa TerKeurst - New York Times best-selling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries ~
You were made to matter. Jenni Catron embodies, lives, and breathes this great truth. Clout is a deeply honest, personal, thoughtful, activist call that will provoke growth where you most need it, and impact where you most hunger for it.
~ John Ortberg - senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church; author of Who Is This Man? ~
God has given Jenni Catron a voice, a heart, and a message for this moment. As our understanding of leadership begins to shift in our culture and in the church, this is a timely call to every man, woman, and child to step into their calling and shine.
~ Sheila Walsh - author of The Storm Inside ~
Jenni's leadership has been invaluable to me and our church. If you've ever bought into the lie that you don't have what it takes and it's kept you from fully living out your purpose, then you need to read this book. Jenni will not only help you identify what's been holding you back, she'll lead you on a life-changing journey to discover and live out your God-given influence.
~ Pete Wilson - senior pastor, Cross Point Church; author of Plan B and Let Hope In ~
Jenni Catron has the uncanny ability to get to the heart of the matter when it comes to leadership. How will you invest your influence? This book brings you to a great understanding of what having clout means and how you can leverage it in your everyday leadership. If you are a leader who wants to lead with their God-given best, you can't miss Clout .
~ Sherry Surratt - CEO and president, MOPS, International ~

"We often confront our greatest fear at the crossroads of influence."
