Living with stigmas is exhausting. The wondering if people support you in the role you are in can be incredibly tiring - like having too many apps running in the background at one time.   


In this final conversation about the stigmas against strong women, Jo and Steph talk interpersonal and work/vocational relationships and how being strong women has affected those areas for them.  They also share from the new ebook on ‘Empowering women in leadership’ on how we can all empower strong women in helpful ways.


Check out the ebook at




1) What pre-conceived ideas do you think there are about strong women in dating relationship? Is it okay for women to be strong in a relationship? Are there only specific circumstances where it is okay?


2) Where have you felt you have had to compete with other women? Where has that feeling come from a false understanding of the abundance of God’s kingdom?


3) What does it look like to affirm the range of gifts and personalities in your friendship group / extended family? Do both the louder and quieter voices get heard?
