It seems ironic that I have been involved in roles of spiritual leadership. Despite having grown up in a Christian home and following Jesus from a young age, I was an ordinary woman, reluctant to even hint of my interest in spiritual things. However, God had other ideas! Orchestrating people and circumstances, he took my family to the West Texas desert where he thrust me into leadership in a small ministry in my church. After a move to Dallas, God revealed my calling in surprising ways, eventually arranging opportunities for me to both write and teach Bible studies to women. I have spoken in unexpected places and trained countless leaders. I am still shocked that I worked on two church staffs. It is solely by God's grace that he has used a very ordinary woman in such amazing situations. If you resonate with this story, work through my book to grow as a leader.
Are you a reluctant leader, as I was? Or maybe you feel unprepared and equipped to be a leader? Would you like to teach but fell intimidated by videos of amazing and gifted teachers?
