Bloom Church Planting Women
WITH EDITOR HEIDY TANDY
UNCOVERING THE IDENTITIES OF WOMEN WHO PLANT CHURCHES
In a collection of stories written by 14 women, Named + Known encourages, motivates, and empowers women in church planting to find freedom and security in their individual stories, gifts, and contexts. The book is for women who have planted, are planting, are interested in church planting or are exploring their own unique identity. For women who are in the first 10 years of starting a church, this book will provide specific tools and insights to help navigate identity challenges unique to church planting women.
Who am I as a woman in church planting? Not simply my role, leadership responsibilities, title, etc…
What unexpected events, life circumstances, changes have occurred in my life that have affected my journey?
What happens when we allow others to define us? What happens when we try to be someone who we aren’t?
How has your relationship with Jesus given you security in your own identity?

“This is exactly what we women need more of…being real, being honest and allowing other women to see those moments that make us vulnerable but help us to lean on Christ that much more!”
“The women who wrote this book have opened their hearts with pure honesty and there is so much in here I believe so many women can relate to. We all have doubts. We all have struggles and vulnerabilities. These women not only share theirs with us, but embrace what a life of trusting God can lead to and the beauty within each moment.”
