The Red Letter Disciple Episode 19

019: Nona Jones Discusses Her Battle with Insecurity and Why She is Killing Comparison

Nona Jones is the Head of Global Faith Partnerships for Facebook/Meta and is a world-renowned author, pastor, and speaker. You wouldn’t think someone with her resume would ever worry about insecurity or compare herself to others. Hear her journey of how she is killing comparison, celebrating others, and using her social media as a ministry to others.

As an author, podcaster, blogger, communicator, or content creator, do you ever feel like you put in the same amount of effort as others, but don’t see the same results? Carey Nieuwhof and The Art of Leadership Academy have a free mastermind that will help you amplify your reach and impact online by: 

  • Identifying your dream audience
  • Learning how to get them to notice you and connect with you; and 
  • Figuring out which platforms are worth your time and effort and which aren’t 

From personal productivity, to team leadership, to leading change, and almost any other leadership challenge you’ll face, The Art of Leadership Academy has the answers to your questions—all for the fraction of what a typical conference or consultant would cost.

Are you following Jesus? 

Many want to be greater followers of Jesus but don’t know how. So we did an extensive study on everything that Jesus commanded of us and located key targets. The five targets are Being, Forgiving, Serving, Giving, and Going.

In partnership with LifeWay Research, we created the FREE Red Letter Challenge Assessment that will measure you according to these five targets. You will get results back immediately and be presented with practical steps and challenges to help you become an even greater follower of Jesus.
