Notes and Quotes:
“We as Americans are so isolated about the reality of our global church.” “I knew that my calling was not my work. But, oh boy, when you’re not working you’re like ‘who am I, and where is God?’” “As women . . . we mistake roles for identity, and it gets really confusing. You have to remember who you are, and how God sees you. Realize that my identity is not the role, the role was a place I was invited to serve. ” “During the tender times when stresses and insecurities are high, make sure your relationship with God is very solid.” “Pray and ask God for friends, but then also do your part in that. Sometimes it’s making a plan or joining a crafting group.” “One of the best pieces of advice I have been given is to ‘invest by owing.’ Instead of being the answer woman, invite somebody else to help you. Then somebody else is going to feel valued and necessary; and you will have a beautiful, mutual exchange. ” “Sometimes we have to relinquish something so God can give it back in another way.” Note: Though I walk through _____, God is with me. “All of us are in transition, where things we depend on are stripped away. So look for the green.” Links/Books/Resources Mentioned In Show:
