Equipped To Be is dedicated to helping Christian women discover and develop their gifts, strengths, and talents to navigate all seasons of life. This podcast will inspire you to move forward, even when you think you aren't enough or don't have the right skills to succeed. Connie Albers shares conversations about building relationships, parenting, social media, marriage, homeschooling, faith, challenges we face, and how to navigate them. I've spent 35 years learning about how we are uniquely created for relationships and connections with others, and one of the things I've learned during this time is how few of us know who we are and what we are equipped to be.

    The Value of Community - 201

    The Value of Community - 201

    What's the value of community? Communities stitch together threads of warmth, creating a cozy haven where ever moms find a place to belong and an opportunity to share experiences. Are you like most people who long for friends or someone to share life experiences with? You aren't alone. 
    We are created for community, but how do we find our people? That's what Connie is focusing on in this episode of #EquippedToBe.

    Embracing Storms Not Chasing Them with Tracy Smoak - 204

    Welcome to "Embracing the Storms Not Chasing Them," where my guest, Tracy Smoak, and I discuss how life's challenges can become stepping stones rather than stumbling blocks. We explore the idea of storms and how these difficult moments can be used as a catalyst for growth and change when we rely on the Lord and not ourselves. You will be encouraged to see storms a little differently.
