Episode 19: Dr. Barbara Brown Zikmund Part 1

I had a great time interviewing Dr. Barbara Brown Zikmund! She is a fascinating person with so many incredible stories. Dr. Zikmund was a professor, dean, and seminary president. She ministered during the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. But don't think she is retired and sitting around collecting social security. BBZ continues to do the work of the Church right where she lives. 

In part 1, we talk about her call, her decision whether or not to have children, and some of the opposition she faced regarding women in leadership. You will need headphones for this episode, but it will be worth it.
