Have you ever stood on the edge of something that was like the best combination of excitement and scared out of your mind?
God is calling me to step out in faith and move like I’m actually believing Him on this whole thing. Starting May 1st, new things are happening for Women Who Believe
This whole thing started one day when I was eating Mexican food with a friend (by the way all stories should start this way). My amazing friend, Lisa Williams, has a super impressive/famous resume (former morning show host at K-LOVE), but I think she’s incredible for so many other reasons. One, she loves Mexican food. Two, she adores my children. And three, she is one of the most passionate people I know, and (seriously) just ask her about Jesus and she might just talk and cry and laugh for an hour straight.
The more we ate the more we dreamed. And as lunch and chips and Dr. Pepper progressed, our dreams got bigger and our ideas got bolder. Our conversation was filled with lots of “what if” questions, “what if we really stepped out in faith”, and “what if God were to truly ask us to do brave things for Him”. As we wrapped up lunch, we knew all these thoughts were way beyond what we could do alone and we had no choice but to absolutely seek His face and ask for enormous buckets of wisdom.
And so, after months of praying, and questioning, and wondering, Here.We.Go…
ONE! Beginning May 1st, Lisa is launching a new radio show called “Life with Lisa Williams”. This show will be 20-30 minutes every single day, packed with great guests, compelling stories and ideas, and whatever else might be current or funny or creative. If you know Lisa, or if you’ve listened to her, you know it’s going to be EPIC. She’s amazingly talented and ridiculously gifted, and God is going to use her show in mighty ways to reach people for Jesus Christ.
TWO! (here’s where the excitement and freak collide) Women Who Believe is partnering with “Life with Lisa Williams” to become a resource for those who want to know more about Jesus and take in His Word in a deeper, more personal way. We’ll be creating podcasts, Bible studies, resources and a place for community, a space for women to really soak in and believe God for all that He is in their lives.
Many of you have been with me from the very beginning when we started four years ago. I originally started this blogsite for the amazing women of my home church who were asking for a summer Bible study. Because summer’s crazy for everybody, and nobody could honestly commit to teach every week, I decided to write an online study and we our launched into our first Summer Series and took on the book of Psalm.
Since June of 2011, God has given us such incredible opportunities, and Women Who Believe now reaches beyond my own amazing church and includes beautiful women from Texas, Illinois, Brazil and South Africa.
So, as I step out in faith, as I think about my dreams for this whole thing, I think I want just two things:
COMMUNITY. I want to be a part of a community of women who desperately want to believe God for all that He is. Women hungry for Jesus Christ. Women who are real, and honest, and want to love their families with all they’ve got. Women like you and me, seeking to know God right in the middle of all our beautiful and messy everydays.
RESOURCES. I want to know God’s Word, and I want to do that with this incredible community. So we’re going to offer resources, studies, podcasts (and maybe even events?!), that will encourage and challenge us to soak in the Truth of God’s Word and make room for Him to change us from the inside out.
I SO WANT YOU TO JOIN ME.
And I’m working on getting this all up and running by May 1.
So much. So thankful. So excited.
I’m so very grateful to be doing all this with you. Whoosh.
Stay tuned. Like us on Facebook. Who knows how God might use a little lunch with salsa.
