#112: Are You a Luke 8 Lady? Building a Business to Bring the Kingdom

December 17, 2022

Are you a Spirit-filled woman who’s looking to launch and build a Kingdom business or ministry in the coming year, and you want some help on how to get started?

A little over a year ago, I felt the Lord urging me to form a small collective of entrepreneurial women out of those already gathered inside The Jesus Girl Gang (my online discipleship mentorship) who wanted to build businesses that could ultimately fund Kingdom endeavors. He was calling me to gather the Luke 8 Ladies.

Have you ever read the portion of scripture in Luke 8, verses 1-3? It references a few women who traveled with Jesus and His disciples as He ministered in the cities and villages throughout the region. The story goes that they funded Jesus’ ministry out of their own substance. Women . . . funding the work of the Lord in the earth in Biblical times!

This is the sort of collective of women God is calling me to gather right now: A group of women who want to fund the Lord’s work in the earth today by planning, building, launching, growing and establishing successful businesses by following Biblical principles, and flowing income from these endeavors into projects and causes that build the His Kingdom. So I’ve gotta ask . . . Are you one of these women?

One hurdle I experienced in this last year as I considered this assignment was a considerable amount of doubt. I was doubtful that I was the girl for this job because I hadn’t yet built my business and ministry to a size that I thought “qualified” me to help women in this area.

But the Lord spoke to me a couple months ago and said, “Erica, the ones I’m calling you to help are the ones who need to finally START and NOT STOP. The ones I want you to help are the ones who struggle with the details of how to get something going, and then they get overwhelmed when it’s time to keep going without quitting. You are designed and equipped to help those women to vision, plan, start, build, launch, grow and establish the business I’ve placed in their hearts, and you can show them how to get to a consistent monthly income flowing that will grow as they faithfully continue.” So what do you think I said to Him?

You KNOW I said YES! In this episode of the Positioned to Prosper podcast I’m launching the Luke 8 Ladies Founders Offer. I’m sharing what it means to be a modern-day Luke 8 Lady, why I’m passionate to help and encourage women who identify as Luke 8 Ladies, and why I’m qualified to coach this collective of women as we build Kingdom businesses together, side by side. I’ll also share a little bit of what we’re going to be covering in this first year of the collective, as we meet monthly and chat regularly around all things business building in the Kingdom.

Does this sound like something God has for you in this season? Are you ready to START and NOT STOP and to push past the overwhelm to grow something with God that is meant to have an impact in the earth today? Are you meant to be a Luke 8 Lady? If so, I want you to grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and let’s get into this episode!

ARE YOU A LUKE 8 LADY FOUNDING MEMBER? I’m looking to gather 24 Spirit-filled, entrepreneurial women who are ready to plan, build, launch and grow a Kingdom business this coming year . . . women who are looking to journey with Jesus and fund His work in the earth today while establishing a consistent, monthly income that will grow as they faithfully continue.
