What is your definition of healthy leadership as a woman in ministry?
Have you ever felt like the health of your leadership role is impacted by the health of your marriage?
You might be wondering what leadership and marriage have to do with the focus of our ministry at More to Be, and that is completely understandable. While we know that everyone in our tribe is not in leadership role nor married, a good bit of y’all come our way looking for resources to share with the ministries you lead while also seeking out spiritual nourishment and biblical encouragement for yourself.
So on this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I invited my good friend, Esther Littlefield to share her story and passion for Christian women in leadership and healthy Christian marriages with us. As a pastor’s wife and ministry leader, Esther knows the pressure quite well. Her own experiences inspired her creation of a marriage course at EstherLittlefield.com as well as the creation of the Christian Woman Leadership Podcast.
While we kick off the episode talking about our mastermind group (suggestions below for starting your own), we quickly transition into the story of Esther’s life and faith. Our conversation naturally flows into the tension found between being a natural leader and cultivating a healthy marriage. Esther’s wisdom, as well as insights into Scripture, will surely bless you. No matter where you are in your life today, you’ll be encouraged to press on in the hope of Christ and see God use your gifts and talents according to His purposes.
