Many of us grew up hearing stories from the incredible women around us. If you’re reading this, I will wager that some of those stories focused on adventures within the church and women’s group. Women are out there, all over the world, exuding kindness while caring for their neighbors and communities. They are leaving the comfort of their own churches to provide strength and hope to those who are lost.
It may feel daunting to tell, but your story is vital to the work of the church. We hear so many phenomenal ideas through the stories of others. Mentioning the work we do for the community or congregation can feel like bragging but our forebears relied on word of mouth to pass on their stories. We can do that too.
