Why Michelle McClain-Walters Is Calling Women to a New Kind of Greatness

We often hear the term "legend" applied to sports figures, movie stars or others the world considers memorable. But Apostle Michelle McClain-Walters says God is redefining what it means to be legendary—and she is joining Him by calling others to the greatness He has placed within them.

"We really believe greatness is all about being on the television, being first, when Jesus says, 'The greatest of you is the servant,' McClain-Walters tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. Her new book, Legendary Woman: Partnering With God to Become the Heroine of Your Own Story (Charisma House, 2021), offers women that new and more biblical paradigm.

"What I do in Legendary Woman, I begin to show women that with their love, their compassion, the faith that they have, they can leave a legend of compassion for other women to follow. So I take a look at the characteristics of God, the small things that we do that no one sees on a platform, but it could be legendary in the lives of someone who's the beneficiary of your actions.

"What I try to do in this book is redefine what greatness is," she says. "I take it back to looking at what Jesus said, how Jesus told us, you know, 'There's no greater love than this, that we lay down our lives for a friend.' ... In the book of Acts, the Scripture says about David that 'he served his generation by the will of God.' So I just believe serving our generation can lead to being legendary."

McClain-Walters says in her training with Apostle John Eckhardt, she was the only woman on most of the apostolic teams. "You need to raise up women like you," the men told her, but she didn't understand what they meant.

"So they began to give me definition about being a woman of courage, understanding my word and the authority to preach. And they said, 'You need to reproduce yourself.'

McClain-Walters says she's long known that the kingdom advances through reproduction. "One generation is supposed to teach the next generation," she says. "So that started my passion to see other women like myself, to see them raised up in their destiny to understand they they're powerful, but they can be feminine. ... I found that the best blueprint for that was given in the Bible.
