Ready for Service: Laying LEAD Women Down (For Now)

In Luke 12:35-38 we’re told to “be dressed and ready for service” and to “keep our lamps burning, like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.”…

Taking Up the Mantle of Reverend & Stewarding the Call: Here We Go!

This is one of those types of posts where I’m sharing my heart. In part, likely because I know I’m already setting myself up for criticism, and if I could avoid it, I’d high tail it in the other direction. But I’m a pioneer…

Gift Yourself with Some Reflection & Planning Time: Questions to Help You Process

I know, it’s about to be 2019 and there are so many that will run out this month to buy gym memberships or to join a weight loss group, and most will not stick to this 2019 resolution. Why? Because it lacks the appropriate…

What’s Next? Strategize to Win!

I have read at least 40 books this last year, and there are a few books that will remain with me, but none have affected me more than Carla Harris’ book Strategize to Win: The New Way to Start Out, Step Up, or Start Over…

Thanks, But I’m Not Passing My Baton, I’ll Carry It

For years now I have struggled with hearing statements like, “The older generation should pass the baton to the younger generation” or “I see a generation rising to take their place.”  Now some might argue that there is nothing wrong with these statements, but…

A Step of Faith Is Now A LEAP!

It was a little over a year ago that I announced on my blog that I was stepping out to officially launch LEAD Women. ( If you’re curious about that, you can read that post here). And with the pilot season and now a…

What Jesus Gives You Cannot Be Taken Away

For a couple of weeks now the album Blackout by Steffany Gretzinger has been playing on repeat. It’s been one of those in season albums for me as every song on this album has had some sort of meaning and ministered to me. And…

Good Intentions Don’t Excuse Bad Behaviour or Consequences

It’s been a fruitful journey of learning these last few years. A journey in which I have had to lean into corrective measures and where I have intentionally sought out feedback on how I’m doing. And one thing I have tried to avoid is…

Board Series: The Role of the Assistant to the Board

If you’ve been tracking with me for any length of time, you know that I’ve been on a passionate roll to bring some clarity in the area of board governance, especially since taking a board governance class (master’s level) this past year. If you’re…

Board Series: The Director’s Voice, What Not to Do

This is to add to my other board series posts, and it’s an important one. As a board member you have a voice, and it is imperative that you know how to use it wisely and appropriately. It is always important to remember that…

“Be The Kind of Leader You Want to Follow”

I love this quote: Be the kind of leader you want to follow. What kind of leader do you want to be? That’s an important question, don’t you think? This question, when faced with it this morning, reminded me of the following: Good leaders…
