Kat Armstrong is a preacher, a preacher’s wife, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Polished, and owner of Baby Bow Tie (for fashionable, functional accessories for kids and pets). The ministry of Polished is equipping young professional women to share the gospel with their peers. Founded in 2008, Polished has shared the gospel with almost 5,000 young women in Dallas and Austin, Texas. Kat’s passion is to see young women navigate the complexities of work and life, inviting them to learn how the God of the Bible can inform and influence their day-to-day lives.
IF YOU HAVE EVER FELT YOUR DREAMS WERE TAKING TOO LONG, THEN THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
In our conversation, Kat shares what it’s like to be a dreamer and doer in the midst of the early season of growing and stabilizing a ministry. She is honest about the inherent difficulty of dreaming big while at the same time having to manage the day-to-day tasks that big dreams require. And she shares two critical things you need to take a dream from nothing to something.
Kat is passionate about connecting women back to the local church and is vividly aware of all the things competing for our attention and attempting to pull us away from faith, God, and the church. We also get a glimpse into what Kat is dreaming for the future of Polished and how we can get involved, even from afar.
