035: Living Out Your Call Part 2 with Robin Jones Gunn


 “What if all God created you to do was to live a simple life of loving Him?”

In part one, my dear friend and best-selling author, Robin Gunn, spoke to how we can live out our call by sharing her personal journey of growing in confidence. As we keep our eyes on God, He wants to give us the ability to trust His power at work in our lives and His ability to accomplish His purposes.

In this episode, Robin continues the conversation by addressing the myths associated with pursuing our dreams and living out our call. With the expansion of opportunities there can be a lot of pressure on women today to discover their purpose, fulfill big dreams and make their mark on the world. Rather than live in fear that we will miss God’s amazing plan for our lives, God wants to free us to simply walk hand in hand with Him every day.
