101: Cultivating a Significant Life with Rachael Adams

“If nothing was too insignificant for the Savior of the world, then nothing is too insignificant for me and you.

Are you feeling the pressure to make your life bigger, brighter and more significant? In this episode Rachael Adams and I talk about “the power of small” and how God makes a little go a long way. Rachael and I talk about the significance of the small moments, and how we can follow Jesus’ example by being faithful in the everyday and mundane.
