One question we get a lot around here is “What are your favorite resources?” Just last week someone reminded me of one of my favorite “pastor wife” reads. I first read Nice Girls Don’t Change the World
about 5 years ago. Actually I read it once (it’s a quick read) and immediately went back to page 1 to read through a second time. Through the years It has gotten stuck in the back of a desk and when my friend reminded me of it last week I went on the search to locate it again.
I talk a lot about personal passion and purpose and the journey I’m on in that area… Nice Girls Don’t Change the World
really speaks to the importance of identifying YOU! Lynne does a great job of authentically discussing what life can be like as the wife of a strong and successful leader. Here’s one of my favorite quotes from Lynne.
The opposite of a nice girl is not just a dangerous woman, but a downright dangerous woman. A woman who shows up with everything she is and joins the battle against whatever opposes the redeeming work of God in our lives and in our world. A dangerous woman delves deeply into the truth of who she is, grounds herself daily in the healing and empowering love of God, and radically engages with the needs of the world.
Dangerous women. World -changing women.
And that is my prayer for each of you as well as for myself… May we be dangerous women.
