Ep. 120 : The Ins and Outs of being a Women in Leadership with Connie Armerding & Audra Mahoney

Co-host and founder of Living Wholehearted and Courageous Girls, Terra Mattson, is kicking off a March series focusing on women and leadership. Most of you listening this month are probably women, but if you are a man, don’t turn this episode off! You will better understand your colleagues and bosses, your sisters and your wife, and be better equipped to raise healthy daughters if you keep listening this month! Terra is excited to have Living Wholehearted teammates, Audra Mahoney, MA LPC Associate and Connie Armerding, MA on the podcast. Audra and Connie are both female leaders who walk with leaders and understand the unique challenges women face in both the home and workplace as they trust God to live out of the call on their life. In episode 120, these three women talk about the reality of juggling motherhood, marriage, and their responsibilities. They share about their own journey toward understanding healthy leadership as well as the common lies they have faced (and are facing) as they shrink their own integrity gaps.   Ruth Chou Simons is our guest on today’s episode. The theme of Ruth’s newest book, When Strivings Cease (released in October, 2021), will bring you a sense of relief and insights to how to receive the gift God is always offering. Ruth is a bestselling and award-winning author of several books — including GraceLaced, Beholding and Becoming, and Foundations. She is an artist, entrepreneur, and speaker, using each of these platforms to spiritually sow the Word of God into people’s hearts. Ruth and her husband, Troy, are grateful parents to six boys – their greatest adventure. Read More
