This week on the podcast we welcome Bricia and Paulina’s Pastor, Holly Wagner.
Holly and her husband, Philip, are the Pastors of Oasis Church – a growing, relevant, multi-cultural, church located in Los Angeles. They have been married for over 30 years, love life and enjoy spending time with their two adult children, Jordan and Paris.
Holly is passionate about seeing women become who God has designed them to become, and to see every generation of woman extend a helping hand to the generation that is younger. Through the women’s ministry of Oasis, She Rises (GodChicks), Holly has empowered thousands of women around the world. Holly has written several books including Find Your Brave, Warrior Chicks, Love Works, and Awakened.
One of her books in particular, Warrior Chicks, changed both Bricia and Paulina’s lives. As Holly dives into the messages of Warrior Chicks, Bricia and Paulina speak on those life changing moments and how it shaped their view on Christianity and their relationship with God forever,
Holly explains how she found her path to serve, recommendations on how to start reading the bible, self-love, motherhood and the value of finding a community.
