Refreshing Conversations: Tiffany Cooper, Julie Richard, and Jessica Cornelius

We continue our series, Refreshing Conversations.  For the past several Fridays, I have been playing back videos recorded from a pastors' wives retreat that I hosted called Refresh.  I couldn't help but take advantage of all the wisdom that was present.  I called in my good friend, Tonia Bendickson, to interview some of the leading Christian women in this nation.  You will hear about a full range of topics from ministry to family to leadership. 

Today we will hear from 3 of my friends, all discussing family and raising kids. 

First up is Tiffany Cooper.  Tiffany and her husband, Herbert, lead People's Church in Oklahoma City, OK.  Tiffany and Herbert planted their church about 7 years ago.  They also have 4 very young children.  Hear Tiffany speak about raising a young family while planting a growing church.

Thanks so much for posting these Holly! My husband is the Outreach Minister at our church and hearing from these women is so refreshing and encouraging. Lots of things you are doing at Elevation have been and continue to be a blessing to us, as we're only an hour away and sometimes will stop in to visit at your worship experiences for encouragement. Thanks again for realizing how valuable sharing these insights would be to others!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting these refreshing conversations! I am not a Senior Pastor's wife yet but I believe I will be one day. I am gathering so much wisdom for the days ahead through these women. I'm laughing, I'm crying, and I'm planing. Thanks!
