How Do I Know What Defines Me? – 078

How would you describe yourself? Is it your relationship status, whether you hold the title of Mom, is it your career path or even your personality type? Do you believe there is anything that makes you special or unique? While these things are part of who you are, they are not the things that make up your worth. We often define ourselves by life stage, titles we hold or groups that we are a part of; but at The Grit and Grace Project we encourage you to look deeper, to your character, the real you no matter what place in life you hold. A woman of grit, grace, and strength. Darlene and Julie discuss the challenges we face dividing what we do from who we are and how to grow in that confidence. This is the week we hope you discover that beauty is uniquely yours, not from outside sources, but from what lies within.
