What is the ultimate purpose you believe God made you for? And are you waiting for something you don't need to start fulfilling that purpose?
In today's episode, Jordan discusses talks us through why we don't need a title to begin fulfilling God's purpose for our lives.

Is “Self-Help” Christian? A Guide to Personal Growth in 2020 [BB009]
Have you ever felt uncomfortable with "personal growth" ideas as a Christian?
(I go deep on this in my new book.)
Sometimes the positive, self-helpy phrases seem fluffy, hollow, and even selfish. I've struggled to balance a drive to grow with a focus on spiritual things...
So as Christians, where do we fall on the self-improvement spectrum? Are we not allowed to focus on those things?
Actually, I've realized just the contrary and I dig into that in this episode of the Bible Better Podcast.
