Book Review: New Release! “The Dream of You” by @josaxton

Why I picked up this book:

Jo Saxton 1

Jo Saxton is the real deal! I first encountered her online and have watched her lead and champion the voices and leadership of women and people of color long before I read a book of hers (though I had intended to for quite some time). “The Dream of You: Let Go of Broken Identities and Live the Life You Were Made For” is her latest addition (released today). Yay! I’m glad to support anyone who is so intentional about uplifting and making a way for others.

 

Who Should Read The Dream of You:

 

Jo is a leader who is intentional about speaking God’s truth into the hearts of God’s people, and especially to women. Throughout this book, Jo shares her personal story and struggles with identity, and I believe it will encourage any woman who is struggling to find herself (the real you) and her purpose.

 

What’s in Store for You:

 

This is an honest contribution to a much-needed conversation about a woman’s worth and identity. Jo is direct about her own struggles and insecurities. She brings the truth of God’s Word to light through her life story in a very practical and refreshing way.

Book Review: “Emboldened” by @TaraBeth82

Why I picked up this book:

Emboldened book cover

Emboldened: A Vision for Empowering Women in Ministry” was written by Tara Beth Leach. As a fellow writer for Missio Alliance, I consider Tara Beth such a gracious leader with a heart for God, his Word, and his people.

 

Who Should Read Emboldened: A Vision for Empowering Women in Ministry:

 

This book will particularly encourage women who are called to leadership in the church, and the men who are making ways to support them.

 

What’s in Store for You:

 

Tara shares her personal faith journey, struggles with identity, and her call to leading (and eventually pastoring) in the church. She shares her heart break for the various ways God’s church is divided, the many women who grew up never seeing other women leading in the church, and her concern for the church’s future if we don’t recognize and celebrate the contributions of women in God’s church.

Book Review – “One: Unity in a Divided World” by @DeidraRiggs

Book Review – “One: Unity in a Divided World” by @DeidraRiggs

Why I picked up this book:

Deidre RiggsOne: Unity in a Divide World” was written by Deidra Riggs, and I find her particularly intentional and passionate about the work of reconciliation. She is a person who uplifts and brings other persons together, so I’m glad to share this resource.

 

Who Should Read One: Unity in a Divide World:

 

We are so easily divided about everything. Given the current political and social climate in America, this book can be beneficial to anyone. I see it as an on-ramp book, particularly helpful for those just getting started on the reconciliation journey. A journey the Deidra defines as a “process that begins when two opposing parties come together for the purpose of peace.”
