Feathers Season 5 Episode 12 with Renee Swope: Confidence and Community


In this episode, I interview Renee Swope.

Renee Swope is a Word-lover, heart-encourager, story-teller and grace-needer. She’s the best-selling author of “A Confident Heart” and “A Confident Heart Devotional, and the former radio co-host of “Everyday Life With Lysa & Renee” at Proverbs 31 Ministries, where she served in leadership for twenty years. Married to her favorite person on earth, Renee and J.J. live in North Carolina making memories with their three kiddos: Joshua (21), Andrew (18) and Aster (7) who their family adopted from Ethiopia in 2009. Renee loves pouring into, praying for and loving on women, in real life and online at www.ReneeSwope.com..


Renee shares her struggle with self-doubt in her calling as an author and speaker. We then chat about community – how important it is, how social media can negatively affect it, and some tips on how to nurture it.

Our girlfriends can be the one that says don’t be so hard on yourself.

Social media can give me a surfacey sense of community. It’s kind of like rice cakes – it doesn’t nourish my heart.
