Dare Mighty Things

A Book Review

Leadership is challenging, but I firmly believe that when women start to see themselves as leaders, receive the proper training and mentoring, and identify and cultivate their natural talents and spiritual gifts, the church thrives because God’s kingdom work is going forth with more laborers. We want to mentor and multiply more women leaders who are equipped and empowered, wise and discerning, humble, and courageous to step out and lead, even when they are afraid.

“Leadership is risky business, and so leaders (the good ones, anyway) will face several crossroads at which they can either choose to give in to their fears or choose to act courageously and do what God has called them to do.” Please don’t wait for someone to give you permission to lead. After all, being recognized as a leader often requires that you first do something so that people can choose to join you in those godly pursuits. Go ahead. Take the risk. I choose to act and live courageously! How about you?

Twitter-worthy quotes:

Self-leadership is difficult, “but if leaders are to lead others, they must be capable of leading themselves.”

Train Women to #Lead: “Women need classes on theology, hermeneutics, liturgy, and the classical virtues.”

Other books I would recommend along these lines:

Reclaiming Eve: The Identity & Calling of Women in the Kingdom of God by Suzanne Burden, Carla Sunberg, and Jamie Wright

Half the Church: Recapturing God’s Global Vision for Women by Carolyn Custis James

Gifted to Lead: The Art of Leading as a Woman in the Church by Nancy Beach
