Leading and Grieving: When Leadership Requires Us to Lead Through Our Own Pain — Paige Clayton Greene The past year and a half have held so much tragedy, turmoil, and heaviness in our world. During that time, the normal rhythms of life and death continue. Whatever happens around us, leaders are still expected to lead and even ramp up to face the ever-increasing challenges around us.

Burnout, Brokenness, and the Beauty of Grace: Truths for the Well-Watered Woman — Gretchen SafflesHave you ever wanted to hide your brokenness from others so much that it kept you from experiencing true life in Christ?

Breakdowns often lead to breakthroughs which God uses to break apart the lies and strongholds gripping us. We weren’t made to walk alone. But first, we must be willing to walk broken, knowing Jesus is with us, loving us every step of the way. headtopics.com
