In this episode of RePlacing Church, she joins me to discuss:
- The importance of 'learning to use your voice'
- Recognizing your privilege, even as an outsider
- How we can be aware of and turn down the imposter syndrome
- Lessons learned from speaking too soon
- How raising your voice can articulate hope for others
- Why good leaders see the potential in other people's voices as much as their own
