Embracing Uncomfortable

Today Dr. Deb Gorton, professor at Moody Theological Seminary joins Perry and Shawna.  Deb is author of Embracing Uncomfortable-Facing Our Fears While Pursuing Our Purpose from Moody Publishers (  What shaped this book is all the painful inner work Deb had to do after the tragic loss of her mom to suicide 12 years ago.  It's a conversation about our identity and purpose that comes from God.  We've been created to be loved by God, to love him back, and to love others.  But it's a journey to get there.  
To get there we have to face our false identities, like finding our worth in achievement or in what people think of us.  And that's where it gets uncomfortable and painful as the truth crashes into our lies.  But that painful, really lifetime process leads to knowing who we are and why we're on this planet:  To be unconditionally by God, to love him in return and to pour out his love to others.  And as this liberating truth burrows into our hearts, we each become a unique expression of our God given identity and purpose and destiny.  It's a deep dive today!
