034: Living Out Your Call Part 1 with Robin Jones Gunn

 

 “True confidence is found in Christ alone!”

In this episode, my dear friend and best-selling author, Robin Gunn, shares her personal journey of growing in confidence. Robin is the author of nearly 100 books and in many ways has become a mother of the faith to this generation of women through her faith-filled stories that depict real life struggles and situations.

As an author and a person of faith, she has had to learn to rely on God’s empowerment to fulfill His calling on her life. When we look to our abilities we will always come up short, but when we choose to accept that the One who calls us is also the One who both equips us and determines the outcome, then we can have confidence that His purposes will be accomplished.
