On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I’m chatting with Mary Willson about women’s roles in the church. We’re praying this conversation will serve as a catalyst to dig into the Word and to pursue further dialogue with women in your own local churches. Ultimately, our hope is that you’ll walk away encouraged to joyfully celebrate the importance God has placed on women’s roles in the body.
