Holley Gerth wrote an amazing book called You're Loved No Matter What.
(You can check out her website here)
I confess I haven't read the whole thing yet but so far it is really good.
Today I read chapter three about embracing the freedom you already have.
These are some of the things I learned:
1. Get brave and ask.
2. Take a chance.
3. Don't hesitate.
4. Don't not do something because you're
afraid you'll make a mistake, we all make mistakes.
5.Your human, stop trying to be perfect.
6. The more you get out and ask the easier it gets.
7. Use the freedom for God's glory.
8. Sometimes you have to just say "No."
9. Be yourself.
I'd recommend checking out her other books too.
