Portia wrote chapter 6 in Women & Work, entitled, “Don’t Waste Your Gifts.” In this episode, she and Courtney discuss:

  • How the Bible defines stewardship
  • How flourishing as humans is a result of good stewardship
  • How fear and comparison are traps to managing our gifts and talents well, as mentioned in the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25
  • What is holding women back from producing the life and growth that comes with faithfully putting our talents to use
  • How Portia has overcome discouragement or exhaustion to persevere in being a good manager of her own gifts and talents
  • Why humility is an important characteristic if you want to be a faithful steward
