Ready to Rise: Own Your Voice, Gather Your Community, Step into Your Influence (Paperback)
A powerful call to step into your full potential that biblically affirms the need for women to rise up and work together to make a better world.
"Jo is one of my most trusted voices in Christian leadership... She leads auditoriums full of people, and she leads me one-on-one." --Jen Hatmaker
In this particular cultural moment, where the momentum of #MeToo meets raised voices over injustice in wage equality and minority representation, popular speaker and podcaster Jo Saxton wants to move women beyond disempowerment. Instead, she draws women together to grow their grit and to establish new partnerships that will have a powerful chain effect.
Ready to Rise tackles the real-life issues women face--workplace harassment, sexism, low self-esteem, financial woes, power battles, and old wounds--while providing meaningful wisdom from Jo's own journey to leadership. Added to this personal reflection are stories of empowered women from the Bible. Jo then calls on readers to invest in the next generation of women and build new communities where diverse female leadership can flourish.
Ready to Rise pulls together Jo's best practices in both listening to the hearts of women and empowering them to change the landscape.
