Every few months I love to share a few encouraging tweets from one of my favorite people on Twitter. I've highlighted Burk Parsons, Lore Ferguson Wilbert, and Matt Smethurst in the past, and today I want to share 8 tweets from another masterful Twitter-user: Jen Wilkin.
Jen is the author of two phenomenal books, Women of the Word and None Like Him, and is an unflinchingly bold and unwaveringly biblical Bible teacher.
She also rocks Twitter. See below.
