Heroes For Her

Most women struggle with things like insecurity, comparison, or trying to measure up to the world's impossible standard of beauty. They've questioned their ability to live well, lead effectively, and own their influence to positively impact the next generation of confident, compassionate and capable women.   

Women need a place to gather, and grow, so they can guide the girls they love to know their value, live on purpose, and make the unique difference in the world they were born to make. 

Welcome to the Heroes For Her podcast with Erin Weidemann

In this podcast, Erin tackles the issues that matter most to women: the mothers and mentors of the next generation. From overcoming fear to walking in purpose to shifting the focus of feminine value from beauty to inherent worth, Erin gets real about the reality of female life and leadership. 

Join Erin as she inspires you each week by sharing personal stories as well as interviewing real women; positive role models whose lives and leadership are making a difference.

EP 54: Caroline Barnett - Daring To Dream

"It's okay to want to quit, as long as you don't quit."    My guest for today's episode is Pastor Caroline Barnett. Born in Sweden, Caroline Olsson came to the United States at the age of two and grew up in the inner city of Los Angeles. In 1996, she came to The Dream Center after hearing her family discuss the work going on there. After her visit, Caroline felt God calling her to volunteer at the Center. When she was just 18 years old, she and her best friend started the Food Truck Ministry which was a revolutionary concept at the time--taking food out to the people on a daily basis. It has since grown into a huge outreach that currently feeds over 50,000 people each month.    Caroline has an amazing heart for the lost. Programs such as the Family Floor, and Project Prevention, which is designed to keep children with their parents rather than allowing the state to separate them, and many more have all been birthed out of her desire to see no one ever be lost or any families torn apart. Caroline also leads the Center's Women's Ministry. She does so because she feels it is a God-given mandate to inspire the women of the church to find their God-given passion to change this world.    In 1999, Caroline married Dream Center Senior Pastor Matthew Barnett and in 2001, they became the senior pastors of the historic Angelus Temple, giving the Dream Center ministry a much-needed sanctuary. Together, the Angelus Temple and the Dream Center are reaching large numbers of people in Los Angeles and are truly effecting change in an impoverished area of a hurting city where many believe a large church could never exist at all.    Check out today's episode, "Daring to Dream," at www.HeroesForHer.com.
