I’m so excited to share this month’s group of Women Worth Following – inspiring women you’ll want to get to know! Every month I feature ten awesome women who are changing the world. Make sure you check out each amazing woman, and of course – don’t forget to follow them!
Sissy Goff, M.Ed., LPC-MHSP is the Director of Child and Adolescent Counseling at Daystar Counseling Ministries in Nashville, Tennessee, where she works alongside her counseling assistant/pet therapist, Lucy the Havanese.
Since 1993, she has been helping girls and their parents find confidence in who they are, and hope in who God is making them to be, both as individuals and families.
Sissy is a sought-after speaker for parenting events and the best-selling author of twelve books, including Raising Worry-Free Girls and Braver, Stronger, Smarter (for elementary aged girls) and her newest release for teenage girls, Brave. Sissy is also a part of the Raising Boys & Girls podcast where she gets to talk all things parenting with her friends and co-workers, David Thomas & Melissa Trevathan.
If you can’t find Sissy in her counseling office, writing or speaking, she’s most likely playing with Henry—her two year-old nephew, having bunking parties, going on golf cart rides through their neighborhood, and having as many Mickey Mouse waffles as possible.
With a fresh method of ministry, Jacqueline seeks to influence future world changers. Jackie holds her Masters in Counseling & College Student Development, with a Bachelor’s degree in Business & Marketing. She has a heart for ministering to those that are striving to create change in their communities
Chrystal is an encourager who teaches people to love God, to love others, and to love themselves. Chrystal is a wife, mother of five and grandmother of 3.
She is also a speaker and the best-selling author of She’s Still There and Kingdom Woman, Show Up For Your Life and the newly released The 28-Day Prayer Journey. You can find Chrystal sharing regular encouragement via podcasts and blogs.
Kenzie is a wife, mother, designer, and small business owner. Her mission is to create designs that provide opportunities to have conversations about Jesus, for God’s glory.
After being pestered by her sister who wasn’t able to find biblically-sound home decor in “her taste,” Kenzie started Best Thought Co. with her focus on affordable digital printables that would fit in your home, no matter what your budget or decorating style was. Today, in addition to printables, Best Thought Co. also offers t-shirts and heirloom-style pennants and banners.
Most recently, Kenzie and her sister founded Alongside Them – a platform where they are passionate about encouraging parents to disciple and train up their families in the fear and admonition of the Lord; and equipping them with tools that magnify Scripture.
On a typical day, you can find her at home with her family, drinking too much coffee with her husband, having a dance party in the kitchen with the kids, or making it about halfway through a home improvement project before she starts another one.
Joy is a Nigerian-American who calls the Washington Metropolitan area home. Her motto is Jesus. Others. You.
She believes if you live life following Jesus, walking with others, and being authentically you, then you’ll thrive. Joy is a positivity spreader who seeks opportunities to stir up the gifts and treasures within others to help them confidently and joyfully fulfill God’s purpose for their life.
Joy is a writer, worship leader, learning and development consultant, and pastor. She enjoys traveling and watching Marvel movies.
Christine is a poet, songwriter and theology geek. She loves crafting art that awakens a hunger for holiness and exploring the challenging truths of the upside-down kingdom through story and humor.
Her passion for making “the real Jesus” known drives her studies at Dallas Theological Seminary and fuels her advocacy for the forsaken and forgotten.
Christine lives in the Lake Travis area of Austin, Texas with her handsome hubby and two fur-babies (one sinner, one saint). She’s an awkward-conversations-about-thought-provoking-topics enthusiast and a fan of anything that takes place outdoors or requires words.
Megan is the CEO of the popular online shop, Scarlet & Gold, the author of Give Grace, and the creator of the Overcome Journal. She grew up as a pastor’s kid, and while the foundation of faith she was given is so important, it’s the fires she’s faced that have refined her heart and given her an unshakable faith.
Megan walked a hard road in pursuit of her lifelong dream to have children, and she’s now Mom to three boys, who she affectionately calls “The Bad Business Club.”
Megan’s journey to motherhood is only one piece of her story that’s given her an important voice in the space of learning to overcome the hard stuff. She encourages women to overcome trials in their own lives and to give and receive grace in the process through her speaking, writing, and inspirational products.
She lives in Alabama, ten hours away from her home state of Texas, where she and her husband Blake, a basketball coach, raise their young boys, twins Stisher and Eli and little baby James.
Promise is the Founder and Creative Director at GoLive. She started this company in 2014 because she believed there could be an easier and less stress-inducing way to get your website live and on the web. Her team has developed fast systems and easy resources to help folks launch their website and start killing it online.
Sarah is a full-time writer, speaker, and host of Not My Story, a conversational podcast about faith and the unexpected. She holds a BS in English Education and MA in Student Development Counseling, and her past work includes teaching and serving as a student life professional on college campuses.
Through her writing and podcast, Sarah invites others to join her in a life of curiosity, compassion, and communion with God and with each other. Her work has been featured in RELEVANT, Fathom Mag, and The Joyful Life Magazine.
Sarah calls Indiana home, where she enjoys a wild and wonderful life with her husband Ben and their four sons.
