My Extraordinary

The other day, I spent a lot of time comparing myself to another person’s accomplishments, and was really struck by how extraordinary they were and how less-than-ordinary that made me feel.  But God reminded me that if He calls me to where I am, then my purpose is extraordinary where I am, even if it […]

Guest Post: Girl, Anxiety
