Leading and Loving It is dedicated to empowering pastors’ wives and women in leadership to love life and ministry. We hope to encourage healthy women and therefore healthy marriages, healthy families, and healthy ministries.
Founder, Lori Wilhite, serves alongside her husband Jud who is the Senior Pastor at Central Church in Las Vegas. They love being a small part of God changing Sin City into Grace City. She is also the author of My Name is Victorious: Find Strength, Freedom and Joy in Who You Are Created To Be. Jud and Lori have two amazing kids, Emma and Ethan. She loves to snuggle on the couch sifting through her overstuffed DVR, enjoys time out laughing and chatting with friends, and obsesses over the perfect tea.
Co-Leader, Brandi Wilson, lives right outside of Nashville, Tennessee with her three sons, Jett, Gage and Brewer. She has been part of two church plants, the most recent being Cross Point Church located in Nashville where she served for 14 years. When Brandi isn’t following one of her boys to either a practice or sporting event, she enjoys yoga, hiking and time spent with friends. She loves all things cozy and comfortable and works hard to craft a simple life she loves living.
Lori and Brandi co-authored Leading and Loving It: Encouragement for Pastors’ Wives and Women in Leadership.
The Leading and Loving It Team is spread around the United States and Canada and serves at churches of varying size, style and denomination.
