Once a month, you’re going to hear from our authors, from our team, or from a guest on how we study the Bible, what resources we use, and what questions we ask.
Do you consider yourself a leader? Are you someone who strives to help others find their way?
Whether you’re the CEO of a big company, a ministry leader in your community, or a leader by example, you’re a woman of influence.
Wherever God has planted you, we want to help you live out the calling God has placed on your life. With that in mind, we reached out to some of our Lifeway Women trainers and asked them to share their favorite leadership blogs, podcasts, and resources. (Perhaps you’ve met some of these women by attending a YouLead or Lifeway Women Leadership Forum event in the past!) Today, we’re sharing some of their top picks to help you as you lead and share your influence with those around you.

- Real Life Discipleship by Jim Putman
Real-Life Discipleship explains what should happen in the life of every Christian and in every small group so that the church becomes an army of believers dedicated to seeing the world saved. With the overriding goal to train disciples who know how to make more disciples, this book offers proven tools and strategies from Real Life Ministries, one of America’s fastest-growing churches. Discover what the Bible says about true and effective discipleship with these strategies and practices.
- Worthy by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Eric Schumacher
Beginning in Genesis and working all the way through the storyline of the Bible, Worthy demonstrates the significant and, yes, even surprising ways that God has used women to accomplish His kingdom goals. Because, like men, women are created in His image—their lives reflect and declare His worth. Worthy will enable and encourage both men and women to embrace this true and lofty vision of God’s creation, plan, and their value in His eyes.
- We Over Me by Whitney Capps
If you feel like God is calling you to lead in church ministry, this study is for you. It’s easy to get frustrated with the local church—we see the people in the pews up close, both their beauty and blemishes. But God has a purpose and a plan that He uniquely accomplishes in and through the church, and He wants you to be part of it.
In the opening three chapters of Revelation, we find a wake-up call directed toward seven churches and discover the truth of God’s desire for the church. Over nine sessions, challenge your perspective and embrace your part in helping the church fulfill its calling.
