Women in Ministry: How Does God Want You To Lead?

links updated August 2020

Soon after I joined the Redbud Writers Guild, I was pleased to have my first article published in the Guild’s online magazine, The Redbud Post. Each month the Post focuses on a different theme, and of course I was happy to be part of their issue on Women in Leadership.
