Do you feel like you spend more time being a professional “fixer” than a spiritual leader? Are you struggling to rekindle the joy in your ministry? Do you feel called to “do things differently,” but are not sure what that means? Do you desire to step into your power, claim your strengths, and stop apologizing for having something world-changing to say?

You went into ministry because of your passion for God and the world, but you’ve seen the dark underbelly of the church and now are not sure you have the stomach for it. Yet, if you leave, you know it will never change.

You have been called for exactly this moment. Just as the church is undergoing a great shift, so are you—it’s time to become the leader you were born to be. 

In The Art of Feminine Spiritual Leadership, you will learn tools for:

  • Letting go of your impulse to “be nice” and “do it right” by following your instincts and truth
  • Accepting all parts of yourself and embodying a different way of leading
  • Navigating unhealthy power dynamics and transforming patriarchal systems
  • Giving yourself fully to the parts of your ministry that excite you and letting go of the rest

If you are ready to become the minister you are called to be, this is a must-read!
