Recently, while speaking at a large women’s conference made up of leaders from 49 states and five countries, I experienced an awkward range of emotions. I felt humbled to have the privilege and opportunity to influence and address leaders composed of women from all walks of life, representing different churches from all around the country. I felt hope for the future as I thought of women discipling and investing into other women and living surrendered to our King, and I felt deep joy seeing old friends and meeting new ones. I also felt out of place, inadequate, and insecure.Read More
The More than Mom Summit: How to Let Go of Mom Guilt, Take Care of Yourself, and Rediscover You, is a community of moms who are sharing their knowledge about letting go of mom guilt, finding the space to practice self-care, and acknowledge our deep desires that say we are created for more. I am so excited to be a part of this interview series, and the community of over 20 women (including Leeana Tankersley, Jill Savage, Suzi Whitford, Jenny Layton, and Ashley Willis, just to name a few), to share with you what we’ve learned through our journeys of motherhood.Read More
From one of those houses surrounded by pine trees too many to count, a mom and one of her three daughters faithfully prayed. The prayers drifted up to heaven like smoke from their chimney.

Hello from the IF:Gathering here in Austin, TX. What an honor to spend time with so many Christian women leaders of similar heart. This global gathering of women not only includes the 2500 attendees here in Austin (tickets sold out in four minutes!) but over 2000 IF:Local groups all across the U.S. and around the world. It’s estimated that 500,000 people viewed the event last year. God is raising up an army of courageous women to link arms and live for the glory of God and the good of others.
Part of my contribution will be on stage Saturday morning with Margaret Feinberg, Rebekah Lyons and Esther Havens as we dive into John 15. Time will be limited so I thought I’d expand a bit on the four color clicky pen method of reading the Bible here. I’m also taping IF:Equip videos with Jeanne Stevens and wanted to include the part from 2 Timothy 3:16 about Scripture in this post.Read More
