Show Notes

As we move into 2021, God is calling women to lead in our realms of influence. To rise up and give the next generation someone to look up to.

And the Biblical story of Esther offers us a good example of what it looks like to stand in our authority, demonstrating courage in the face of great obstacles.

So, how can we draw strength from Queen Esther? How can we put on our own royal robes and step into the new year with wisdom and grace?
