Jo Saxton’s talk from SheLeads 2016 is this week’s featured resource, free from 8/7 to 8/13. This talk discusses what leadership means to women, from Jo Saxton who specializes in women’s leadership and helping other’s reach their potential.
About the Resource
Deborah led a nation with it. Miriam led worship with it. Mary had it, Eunice and Lois invested it into their family, Priscilla taught with it, Junia pioneered with it. Yet many of today’s women leaders though gifted and called are perplexed, even intimidated by the idea of it.
This session explores how leaders can live and lead with spiritual authority – because the church and her mission are lifeless without it.

Additional Resources by Jo
Society has no problem telling women what they should be. It determines their dreams and expectations, and dictates how they should feel about their image, relationships and career. So how do we do life – friendship, money, men and the rest – with wisdom and integrity? As Christian women, where is our place in today’s culture?
Women who doubt their influence, who struggle to accept their distinct strengths and talents for what they are–gifts given through them to the world–suffer for it. The church, and really all of society, suffers with them. Jo Saxton invites women to discover (or rediscover) the gifts and talents that God has vested in us, and more important, the calling he has placed on each of us to seek first the kingdom of God where we are.
