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.

Why I picked up this book:

 

I had the honor of being on Amena’s endorsement team. This is what I wrote about the book:

 

Amena Brown is the Issa Rae of the Christian market. This is a clever, honest, witty book that I am glad to share with my mentees.

 

Amena risked sharing her life and broken records with us, and I believe it is a risk that will pay off both for her and for those who read.
