WOMAN IN PULPIT_edited.jpg



Are you a woman who feels called to ministry?

Or do you know a woman with a call to preach, teach, or other spiritual leadership?

Preach Like a Lady provides answers and affirmation for women called to ministry. ​ Help is here!

     “The call of God is a tricky thing. We pray for affirmation. We want to know for sure it is really God who is speaking. We work to discern what it is he is asking. We look for a path. People to follow. Advice as to how to proceed.

     "Many books are written to help men navigate the path from pew to the pulpit, yet very few have been written with the specific intent of helping women. Until now. Lori Wagner's Preach Like a Lady lays out a path to follow. In her very clear style, she answers questions about calling, advises her readers about consecration and ethics, and she includes, as well, practical advice about ministering as a lady. I am very thankful for this much-needed book!”

Foreword by Janet Trout


"Preach Like a Lady is a handbook to get you started and guide you along the way. It is well written, a journal for the journey, and a candid 'how-to and how-not-to' approach to ministry. Read it, study it, and then use it as a checklist. Affirmed by its presentation of biblical facts, you can now go forward in confidence, with character and conduct becoming to a woman who wants to Preach Like a Lady."


—Rev. Janet Trout, Ph.D.
