Do you dream of making a difference for God--but wonder how to begin? Do you find it difficult to keep your focus amid the urgency of everyday living? Do you feel ill-equipped to help those who turn to you for guidance? Are you searching for direction for your life--a ministry that matters? Pam Farrel has been there, as have so many countless other women she has discipled. In this book she shares what she has learned about disciplemaking, discovering a personal ministry, and staying focused on your goals. By the time you work your way to the end, you'll have discovered why a woman of influence:
  • is impassioned
  • is an individual
  • is intimate with God
  • is idealistic
  • is interdependent
  • takes initiative
  • has integrity
  • is intense
  • is inquiring
  • is infectious
Though many still debate the proper role for women in leadership, no one denies that women have a great influence on their families and friends, on the job and in the church. In Woman of Influence Farrel shows how you can be a faithful servant of God in all of those relationships and circumstances. Here's a book that women everywhere will welcome--full of encouraging counsel for finding God's leading in your life and then following him. This revised edition--containing even more stories of women, updated examples and a Bible study--can give you fresh perspective and direction in your life as you discover all the ways God wants to use you to influence others for him.
