In our latest episode of our “Sheroes of the Faith series,” Jo Saxton shares about her favorite woman in the Bible, Deborah. And let us tell you. Jo absolutely makes her story come alive. Honestly, Deborah’s story couldn’t be more timely. Her courageous leadership during an extremely devastating and difficult time in history provides us with the example we all need for how to boldly lead during the Covid-19 crisis and its aftermath. In a world that often puts us into prescribed boxes, Jo’s wisdom on how we can break free of stereotypes we might feel trapped in and confidently embrace our God-given gifts is a treasure. And if that’s not enough, Kat and Jo also discuss Jo’s latest book, Ready to Rise. Regardless of wherever you find yourself in life right now, you will find courage and freedom in today’s episode.

Jo Saxton, a Londoner born to Nigerian immigrants, is an author, speaker, podcast host, and leadership coach. After founding an initiative supporting women who lead, Jo now coaches female leaders around the world through her online leadership development program and advises organizations on how to develop and support women in leadership. Jo has written books on leadership, identity, and legacy, including The Dream of You. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Chris, and their two daughters.

In light of the devastating Covid-19 situation and it’s significant impact on each of our lives, we can’t think of a more fitting woman to kick off our “Sheroes of the Faith” series than with THE Beth Moore. Having dedicated herself to the study and practice of God’s word for decades, Beth Moore is the older sister in the faith we all need right now. Let us tell you. If you need to be reminded that reading the Scriptures really is worth it and that the God of the Bible is who He says He is, then this episode is for you. In today’s episode, Beth Moore shares about how she came to love the Scriptures, what it looks like to dedicate herself to her craft while prioritizing her family and the story behind her latest book, Chasing Vines. While this episode was recorded before the start of the pandemic, Beth Moore’s discussion with our host, Kat Armstrong, is so timely in this moment and full of the hope we need right now. We are so thankful to Beth for sharing her story and about the ways God continues to work in her life. We hope that Kat’s conversation with Beth Moore brings hope and a renewed curiosity for Scriptures to you wherever you are in your faith today.

Chasing Vines: Finding Your Way to an Immensely Fruitful Life by Beth Moore

Verses:

1 John 5:12-13 "Now this is the confidence we have before Him: Whenever we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears whatever we ask, we know that we have what we have asked Him for."

Acts 16:11-15 "We boarded a boat at Troas and sailed straight across to the island of Samothrace, and the next day we landed at Neapolis. 12 From there we reached Philippi, a major city of that district of Macedonia and a Roman colony. And we stayed there several days.

13 On the Sabbath we went a little way outside the city to a riverbank, where we thought people would be meeting for prayer, and we sat down to speak with some women who had gathered there. 14 One of them was Lydia from Thyatira, a merchant of expensive purple cloth, who worshiped God. As she listened to us, the Lord opened her heart, and she accepted what Paul was saying. 15 She and her household were baptized, and she asked us to be her guests. “If you agree that I am a true believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my home.” And she urged us until we agreed."

Luke 8:1-3 "Soon afterward Jesus began a tour of the nearby towns and villages, preaching and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom of God. He took his twelve disciples with him, along with some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases. Among them were Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons; Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s business manager; Susanna; and many others who were contributing from their own resources to support Jesus and his disciples."
