Sharing from her thirty-year journey in a local church, Nancy offers guidance on such issues as: * Developing character * Earning respect * Finding your voice for leadership and teaching * Managing work and personal life * Forming an intentional support network She also challenges church leaders to wrestle with the issue of women in leadership, and to be advocates for women as they seek to reach their full ministry potential.
