In this episode, I interview Alli Worthington.
Alli Worthington is an author, speaker, blogger, and the Executive Director of Propel Women, an organization that empowers female leaders. Her goal is to help women live the life they were created to live. Alli co-founded BlissDom Events and has helped individuals, small business owners and Fortune 500 companies be more successful. Alli’s no-nonsense, guilt-free take on motherhood, parenting and balance has led to appearances on TODAY and Good Morning America. She lives outside Nashville with her husband, Mark, their five sons, rescued dog and cat who moved onto their doorstep.
Alli’s story begins at the pinnacle of one of the most successful blogging conferences around when she heard God’s direction to quit. She then experienced a year of disobedience, another year of learning what it really means to trust God and then must learn to say yes when He calls her to the next adventure.
I heard two words ‘Quit Blissdom’ and I was absolutely appalled. I was shocked. I was surprised, but I knew it was God. – Alli Worthington
I wasn’t willing to obey until I knew what was next – Alli Worthington
God was growing so I would trust him – Alli Worthington
I had to decide I wanted what he wanted more than what I wanted for myself – Alli Worthington
All the success I had I was thinking in the back of my mind it was my success and it wasn’t Him leading me. – Alli Worthington

I never would have been ever able to say yes to this opportunity had I not obeyed God when it didn’t make sense. – Alli Worthington
God has planted different gifts inside of us and I believe they’re indicators of what we’re created to do. – Alli Worthington
If we’re so busy doing all the things that suck the life out of us we’re going to miss those great opportunities – Alli Worthington
God is directing us but asks the question will you trust me or will you not and then gives us the option – Amy Bennett
We can’t lean on our own understanding, we just can’t reason ourselves to the right answer – Amy Bennett
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Proverbs 3:5
