Do you ever feel inadequate because you don’t know enough? Do you tell yourself you’re too behind to ever catch up? In this episode with Katie, we discuss her recent decision to follow Jesus and the identity questions she still wrestles with. We do official internet “research” (via online quizzes) to drill down to our true identities as well. What we discovered is: the concept of identity is a hard one to wrangle and we all wonder if we’re on the right track from time to time.

What we chat about:

  • defining true identity

  • what it really means to “find our identity in Christ”

  • how to believe the truth in what God says about us instead of the lies we tell ourselves

What is it like to be famous before you’re famous? What is it like to walk in the shoes of another person? Each episode of IMAGINED LIFE takes you on an immersive journey into the life of a world-famous person. It’ll be someone you may think you know, even admire -- or maybe the opposite. You’ll get clues to your identity along the way. But only in the final moments will you find out who “you” really are. So sit back, let go, and -- imagine your life.

Do you think you might need counseling, but don’t know where to start or even if it’s okay to get help? Ann has got answers.

Ann Taylor McNiece is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a wife, a mom, a daughter, and a friend. Over the past few years, she has worked in the schools with kids of all ages, in private practice with individuals and couples, and in a community mental health agency where she served low-income clients and family reunifying after problems with child abuse. Her passion is to help women understand the truth about their hearts and souls and to help couples get to the heart of their marriages. 

What we chat about:

  • signs that it’s time to seek a professional counselor

  • dispelling the stigma that it’s not okay for Christians to get counseling and/or medication

  • how to find a counselor that is the right fit for you

  • identifying issues with food obsession and body issues

  • what to say to a friend who you believe would benefit from counseling

Excited to kick off our first-ever Struggle Well Project Focus! Interestingly, as I studied the concept of identity, I got very involved in the study of icebergs…I know. It’s odd. Just stay with me here. I promise it is interesting.

If you aren’t on the newsletter list yet and you don’t have the printable, head to strugglewellproject.com/identity and we will get that right out to you!
