“It’s not so much about having the longing for success or significance, but where we turn in the midst of that longing.”
Do you have big dreams and callings from the Lord, but feel held back by fear of failure, or even fear of success? I sit down with my dear friend Rebecca George as we discuss her new book Do the Thing: Gospel-Centered Goals, Gumption, and Grace for the Go-Getter Girl. Rebecca and I talk about trusting God during rejection and disappointment, and how to follow our dreams in a way that glorifies Him.
