   “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!”

From the foreword of the Preach Like a Lady book.

"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."
