Stories of leadership and life with Jo Saxton and Steph O'Brien

Nov 21, 2016

Working with survivors of trafficking, addiction and prostitution, Becca Stevens developed Thistlefarms social enterprise as a way to meet the economic needs of those women.  The project began with a residential community of just 5 women and is now the largest national enterprise run by survivors.   Jo chats with Becca about her dream to create a sanctuary for women survivors, her journey to ordination and some of the key ingredients in helping her to survive and thrive in leadership. Jo and Becca also share how their recent trip to Haiti has impacted them.   Listen in to find out what Becca is currently excited about, and what she means by saying she is ‘more interested in bold leadership than servant leadership’.   Check out:  Thistlefarms products in Wholefoods stores and online: www.thistlefarms.org   Books:  Check out Becca’s books at: http://www.beccastevens.org/books/ Look out for Love heals when it is released!   Also check out this article on Thistlefarms and Becca on CNN: http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/02/us/cnn-hero-becca-stevens/index.html   Discussion questions:  1) Dream time! What dreams are in your heart? Take some time to share.   2) God told David ‘not you, not now’ when he dreamed of building a temple, so obviously now is not the time for every dream to be realized.  However, where are you too busy to invest in the dreams that God is calling you to work with now? What are you going to do about it?   3) Would you describe yourself as a bold leader? Why or why not? What do you think it means to be bold in Christ? Where is the Holy Spirit encouraging you to be bold in your leadership right now?   Follow Lead Stories Podcast to interact with Steph and Jo: Twitter: @LeadStoriesVox Instagram: @LeadStoriesPodcast Facebook: LeadStoriesPodcast Connect with Jo at: www.josaxton.com @josaxton Connect with Steph at: www.pastorsteph.com @pastorstephMPLS Subscribe on iTunes to have the podcast automatically download to your device every week or listen at www.leadstoriespodcast.com
