In her latest book, Ready to Rise: Own Your Voice, Gather Your Community, Step into Your Influence, Jo tackles the real-life issues women face — workplace harassment, sexism, low self-esteem, financial woes, power battles, and old wounds — to help move women beyond disempowerment and together to grow their grit. While providing meaningful wisdom from her own journey to leadership, Jo also adds stories of empowered women from the Bible. Readers will be empowered to change their landscape and build new communities where diverse female leadership can flourish.

Her previous book, More than Enchanting: Breaking Through Barriers to Influence Your World, discusses the role of women in church and society. While her book, The Dream of You: Let Go of Broken Identities and Live the Life You Were Made For helps readers address their past, accept their identity, and learn how to create a legacy they want. In addition to work as an author, Jo has also spearheaded an initiative aimed to help women grow their leadership skills.
