Episode 096: Modern Discipleship With Lizzy Jensen: Why Faith and Spirituality Are More Important Than Ever

Lizzy Jensen is a mother of five, an attorney, entrepreneur, and the founder of a non-profit called The Small Seed, which is designed to bring women of faith together. In today's podcast, my dear friend Lizzy shares what inspired her to start The Small Seed from a hospital bed while carrying high-risk twins, and why she feels so passionately about having a place for women to share about and strengthen each other's faith.

Lizzy talks to me about why she believes it's SO important to have diversity in the religious backgrounds of those she brings onto her team at The Small Seed. We also talk about why religious freedom must be battled for right now in our schools and places of worship and even in the workplace.

She brings the fire today talking about why modern discipleship is something we have to embrace together rather than having differences tear us apart in our growingly divisive world. Finally, she shares some of the very doable takeaways you can start doing today to grow closer to God and share that joy with others.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • What drew her to start a nonprofit and bring Christian women together
  • Serving as a missionary for 18 months in Croatia
  • Being assigned a religious asylum case in law school, she got to read through hundreds of cases of religious refugees and PERSECUTION happening in our world RIGHT NOW

  • The risks of losing our religious freedom
  • Don't underestimate what one person can do in a community.
  • Ways to stay firm with your message

  • “Remember that discipleship is not about doing things perfectly. It's about doing things intentionally.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf
