On this episode, Nancy Beach and I talk about how to battle the voices in our head and the lies that keep us from reaching our full potential.
We discuss how as women we are prone to compare ourselves to others and how to turn from competing against each other to becoming each other’s biggest fans.
We talk about how to overcome our addiction to approval. We also touch on the reminder that there is only one of you in the whole universe and to lean in and be the be the best version of yourself.
For over 20 years Nancy served as the Programming Director for Willow Creek Community Church in suburban Chicago, building a community of artists who sought to create transformational moments in Sunday morning church services. Nancy also served as a Teaching Pastor, periodically bringing the weekend message. Currently, Nancy serves as a leadership coach with the SlingShot Group, helping church leaders and teams to flourish in life and ministry. Nancy also uses her teaching gifts to cast vision at conferences and workshops, for both artists and women in leadership.
Nancy is the author of two books. In her book, An Hour on Sunday, Nancy expresses the core vision and values which she believes are foundational to any effective arts ministry. Nancy’s second book is titled, Gifted to Lead: the Art of Leading as a Woman in the Church.
She and her husband Warren live in the village of Barrington, Illinois with their dog, Beanie. They both serve at Soul City Church in downtown Chicago where Nancy is on the Teaching Team. Their daughters, Samantha and Johanna, are both theatrical artists.
