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.

    Season 3: A Look Back at God's Faithfullness - 153

    I want to take a moment to talk about God's faithfulness. The Equipped To Be Podcast has reached a major milestone. With this episode and the transition to Season 3, we have marked three years of episodes! There were ups and downs along the way, but I'm so excited to have shared this journey with you!
     
    Equipped To Be began in February 2020 right before the pandemic turned our world upside down. Amanda from The Pelsers Media was sitting in my office talking to me about starting the podcast and she said she'd help me. I couldn't do this podcast without my team, you my listeners, and my sponsors and partners. Many thanks to all of you! Join me in this episode to hear the story of God's faithfulness over the last three years!

    Extraordinary Forgiveness in the Life of Corrie ten Boom with Larry Loftis - 155

    New York Times Bestselling author Larry Loftis is back on the show to talk about the story behind his newest novel. In this spy thriller, Larry tells the story of the life of Corrie ten Boom. Many of us are familiar with the story from The Hiding Place but that is maybe about ten percent of the story of Corrie's life. There's so much more to tell as Larry learned in his research. It's a story of extraordinary forgiveness.
