My guest today, Michelle Lazurek, shares her personal walk with anxiety that led her into understanding her need for total surrender to God. The idea that we are to surrender is indeed a struggle for many people, as is anxiety.
Through authentic testimony, she helps us understand that it is okay not to be okay. She offers encouragement through her new book, "I Surrender All (Sort of)" for living an honest walk that, although difficult, is the best way to heal and then be an authentic voice for others struggling with healing too.
She speaks about the importance of reaching out for help from professional counseling and the two very important lessons she learned in this process that led to wisdom around surrendering. Showing her vulnerability around what she learned when releasing performance, perfection and pride, she shows that true surrender can be accomplished with God's help and our willingness to do the work. She also shares some practical steps for people who want to begin to adopt a life of surrender.
