NEW BOOK: How to avoid burnout and energize your leadership
Are you a ministry leader who has a deep desire to lead and love well, but struggling with stress, fatigue, or burnout?
I know how you feel, and I want to assure you that it’s possible to live strengthened, not depleted, in your leadership journey.
I’m passionate about helping leaders sustain their callings. For the past 30 years I’ve led in local churches and have witnessed many leaders fall prey to exhaustion and burnout. It doesn’t have to be this way! Jesus has empowered us with everything we need to lead well and thrive in every season of life.
You don’t have to live another day bound up by burnout or afraid of it.
Whether you’re in the midst of burnout, on the edge of it, or wanting to avoid it, Living Refreshed is the guide you need to energize your leadership.
In this book, you’ll discover:
- Why replenishing your emotional resources is one of the most spiritual things you can do (and how to do it).
- The 5 simple things you can do to cultivate a vibrant relationship with God (even during your busiest days).
- How to lead well when you’re tired and there is still a lot to do.
- Practical ways to nurture reliance and embrace the grace of your leadership role.
- How to avoid the most common mistakes ministry leaders make in relating to their spouses, raising kids, and making friends.
You’ll also discover that scripture is abundantly clear God intended women to lead.
