Jess Connolly is a gal who’s passionate to communicate about Jesus. Whether that's through writing, speaking, or having a coffee date -- she loves spurring other women on and wants to leave her generation more in awe of God than she found it. She's one of the co-founders of SheReadsTruth, one of the owners of Amen Paper Company, co-author of USA Today Best Seller "Wild and Free," and the co-founder of The Influence Conference and Network. Jess lives in Charleston, South Carolina where she and her husband have planted Gospel Community Church.
IF YOU HAVE EVER CONSIDERED YOURSELF “NOT A DREAMER,” THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
In this interview, Jess talks about seeing herself as more of a developer than a dreamer and how God has used that characteristic for His purposes. She shares about the church-planting journey she and her husband, Nick, have been on for the last 11 years and how, for a time, that was a sore spot in their marriage. Today, this is where her focus lies – in really digging in to support him and the church – and she talks about what that looks like for them and their relationship.
I love what Jess had to say about finding and building community before you run after your dreams and how that has played out for her as a church planter’s wife and a public figure. We also discuss her new book about holiness called “Dance Stand Run,” which is coming out in October 2017.
I know you’ll love hearing from Jess. My apologies for the sound-quality on this one – stay tuned, I’m certain we’ll have the issues fixed by Episode 36!
Wild and Free: A Hope-Filled Anthem for the Woman Who Feels She is Both Too Much and Not Enough
