Just real life. Real questions. Real transformation. Approach many women in the church and if theyre being honest theyll tell you they try hard to keep it all together are frustrated that being good doesnt deliver the perfect life feel trapped in expectations make decisions based on shoulds feel selfish when they say no and are uncertain of their place in Gods kingdom. Between the desire to please God the need to feel valued and the compulsion to make everyone around them happy women often find themselves denying their desires. Its safer to stay in the life of shouldseven if it means being spiritually and emotion- ally disconnected. Kelli Gotthardt knows their pain. Always considered a good girl she threw herself into every ministry saying yes to every request her church family made. On the outside her life looked completely togetherbut she was drowning in self-doubt and shame. Unlikely Rebel is the story of how Kelly slowly shed shoulds and shame learning to love God and love who He created her to be. The journey from the comfort of doing everything expected of a perfect pastors wife to the uncertainty of living authentically and true to her unique calling is equal parts exhausting and exhil- arating. Many Christians condemned her responding with fear or anger to her greater intimacy with Gods calling when it didnt match their own vision. For others though her journey inspired courage to embrace Gods path for their own lives. Now Kelli invites other women to discover Gods leading in their lives learning that if they throw off the despondency of underserved shame abundant life awaits. Kelli Gotthardt is a pastors wife international speaker and leadership consultant. She holds a masters degree in spiritual for- mation and works as a ministry consultant with Missio.
