Advice for other female leaders:
Study to show yourself approved, never live only on other peoples experiences but pray that you would have your own.  Learn the truth so well that you immediately recognize error. Know the difference. let truth be a sign post in your life. Never fall for, nor teach it. Teach and live only that which is backed by the Word of God.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, (Hosea 4:6)

Never become inflated in your own ego. Remember, Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18)
