No mistake was made in heaven when God gave you the gift of leadership or teaching. Every gift you have--your instincts to lead and your passion to make a difference-- came from the hand of a loving Father who crafted you. In this practical and inspiring book, Willow Creek Executive vice president and teaching pastor Nancy Beach speaks to women with God-given gifts of leading and teaching. Sharing from her thirty-year journey in a local church, Nancy offers guidance on such issues as: - Developing character - Earning respect - Finding your voice for leadership and teaching - Managing work and personal life - Forming an intentional support network She also challenges church leaders to wrestle with the issue of women in leadership, and to be advocates for women as they seek to reach their full ministry potential. Nancy desires that women will fully engage in the dangerous and thrilling adventure of using their leadership gifts to advance the kingdom of God. The path won't be easy . . . but God will never leave you alone.
