Standing Strong with Alli Worthington
Don’t you love it when you’re reading along and something in a book makes you sit up a little straighter, causing you to think of something in a new way? Recently I was reading Standing Strong by Alli Worthington, and this quote did that for me: “Think of a strong woman in your life, that woman you look up to? Someone is looking at you like that right now. You are that strong woman to others. You are the embodiment of what a great woman of God is to someone.”
In each of our lives, there are those who are looking up to us … for encouragement, for support, and for inspiration. Sometimes it’s a neighbor or a friend … always it’s a family member, especially our kids. Even when we feel weak, we can be a testimony of strength to someone else. How amazing is that?!
In today’s podcast, Alli and I talk about what it means to stand strong. We tackle the struggle with our inner critic (aka rude nanny!). We talk about what really works to push past self-doubt. We also talk about what obedience and following God looks like. Sometimes it’s stepping FORWARD in faith, and sometimes it’s stepping BACK from something we really, really want to do. (Ali and I both share an example.) Yet in all of that, standing strong means depending on God’s power and not our own. If you’re ready to really live the life that God’s designed for you, you’re going to love this episode!

About the Book:
You can’t break a woman who draws her strength from God. God made you to stand strong in any adversity, and this book will show you how.
We live in a culture that constantly tells you who you should be as a woman. You are told that you are not enough and that you don’t have what it takes—you are asked, “Who are you to dream big?”
For the woman who longs to break free from what holds her back, bestselling author Alli Worthington offers a no-nonsense, guilt-free guide to take back your life from self-doubt.
In Standing Strong, Alli comes alongside as your guide as you:
- Eliminate, once and for all, the lies that keep you from being who God made you to be
- Become an unbreakable woman who finds her strength from God for any adversity
- Gain strategies for tackling the obstacles of self-doubt, fear, and insecurity
- Find the confidence to say yes and amen to God’s call on your life
You are stronger than you think, and you are worth more than you could ever imagine. So let go of the guilt, shake off the shame, and fend off your fears as you fight with your faith. It’s time to remember who you are: a woman God has called to partner with him–to be a fierce force for good in the world to the glory of God.
