Episode 28 - Suzanne StoryTellers Live

    • Religion & Spirituality

So many of our stories have roots in our childhood, and that’s true for this episode’s storyteller, Suzanne. She found at an early age that she could protect herself from criticism or ridicule by controlling her appearance and performance. Since then, her bent toward perfectionism has played out in several areas of her life including school grades, body image, career, and even parenting. That kind of pressure is not only exhausting, but as Suzanne points out, it also limits our potential. Because what we do through our own efforts can never top what we’re capable of doing when God is working through us! Suzanne experienced a huge shift in her perspective and approach to life when she began really engaging with God through prayer and His Word. While striving for perfection is still a struggle at times, she's found the freedom and joy of living in balance rather than in the extreme.
