Sometimes I am my own worst enemy.
Have you ever been disappointed by the turnout at one of your women’s ministry events?
Almost every week I hear from leaders who are
frustrated disappointed by the lack of interest for women’s ministry events in their church.

Perhaps you’ve noticed a drop-off in the attendance of your women’s ministry events.
Maybe the Bible studies that once drew women in abundance are all but limping along.
In addition to serving on three different women’s ministry teams in three different churches, I’ve had the privilege to be a part of numerous teams.
Some team leaders were strong, others struggled.
