Key Quotes from Natasha:

“[When people ask] whether leaders are born or made, I say both.”

“I try to read people who have a different bend than I do.”

“What I’ve found in good, Bible-teaching churches, is that people are not often talking about discipleship. And if they are talking about discipleship, they really don’t know how to make disciples.”

“We were created to work from the very beginning. That was not a consequence of the fall, so us working is a part of our humanity.”

“I think the church, in the future, is going to have to get better at partnering.”
