Today I’m delighted to introduce you to my friend Ed. I first met Ed through his blog, where he decided to share his space so that women in ministry can tell their stories. I’ve found his series to be honest, encouraging and eye-opening about the unique journeys women have shared of their life in ministry. I posted for him here, and you can read another of my favorites here, or check out the whole Women in Ministry series.
Any guy who wants to share his space to encourage women is a friend of mine! Ed has co-written a book called “Hazardous: Committed to the Cost of Following Jesus” A favorite quote from the book:
We want the joy, peace and assurance of a comforting Savior, meanwhile forgetting that gaining what is most precious requires letting go of what is less important. In the meantime, letting go of the things of this world can be frightening and difficult. What’s more, having Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior does not assure us of smooth sailing. In fact, if anything, having Jesus as Lord and Savior tends to assure us that we will not have smooth sailing. Instead, we are promised a competent captain who will lead us through difficult storms.
Hazardous is a practical, scripture-led book on how to live out a life following Jesus–not a perfect or “tidy” faith, but a messy, hope-filled, transformative faith that shapes us into a person who seeks God’s own heart. You can pick it up here!
