Episode 104: Be The Best You

Sep 5, 2022

“God has uniquely equipped you. He created you for this very thing. This message he's given you, he wants you to share it in the way in which he's created you.” – Mary R. Snyder

Today's episode explores how we can authentically share God's message by being our best selves.

Highlights from today's episode include:

  • Best the best you (2:46)
  • An onstage and offstage you (4:36)
  • What I want you to hear (5:58)
  • Your story is unique to you (8:08)
  • How to be your best self (9:21)
  • Show up authentically (10:39)

Rather than trying to be someone else, I want you to be yourself! This is the time God has equipped you for, so be the fabulous person he has created you to be.

    I think I would be a complete train wreck and you’re right.. it takes so much more mental margin to be someone else other than yourself. I do want to speak well and I’ve learned to ask God for the words to use to express what I’m sharing well that I can make my own. 🙂
