Life in ministry – and in the public eye – brings its challenges. Those of us in leadership certainly benefit some insight on how to respond to criticism, deal with isolation, and handle the expectations of others. Yet, life in ministry – and in the public eye – also brings its perks. Those of us in leadership have front row seats to all that God is doing in our churches and to the lives He is changing. In their book, Lori and Brandi inspire us all to relish those perks even while battling the challenges of being “out in front.”
I’m honored to call both Lori and Brandi my friends, and I can truthfully say that who they present themselves to be in public is exactly who they are in private – fun-loving, encouraging, compassionate girls who genuinely want others in ministry to enjoy the ride as much as they do.
