Episode 142: Emily Vogeltanz

Today’s guest is Emily Vogeltanz. She's a mom, wife, a country girl living in the city, and a church builder. She has worked with Passion Conference + Passion City Church for 16+ years in various roles. She currently helps lead Passion City Cumberland and the Grove which is a monthly women's gathering.

I was so excited to sit across the table from her. We talk about marriage, kids, ministry, fear, travel, dreams and what we want most of our own hearts to believe. This is one of those episodes that is packed full of goodness—that feels like you literally sat down with a friend over coffee.

Takeaways From Our Conversation:

  • Stop comparing yourself to someone else and bloom where you are. Trust Jesus with your life to do what he wants you to do. Learn to love who God made you to be.

  • Dream big dreams and go for it! Step out and use your gifts. Be a contributor somewhere. Do the next right thing - you just have to show up. Don’t think about writing a book or chapter. Just show up and be ready. Then, if you stumble or fail, show yourself some grace.
