It brings me a tremendous amount of joy to sit with younger women pursuing ministry. The next generation of leaders give me so much hope for the future of the bride of Christ. We need all capable hands on deck reaching out to the next generation, pulling them to the table, pushing them to pulpits, teaching them the Bible, speaking words of wisdom to them, coming alongside them in leadership, and instilling confidence in them. What we decide to do with the next generation has a ripple effect for our daughters, and their daughters, and their daughters. Who will you, dear sister, embolden today?
