Quotables from the Episode:

  • The older I get, the more I realize that all I really need is Jesus. I don’t need to be “Pinterest perfect.” I just need Jesus.
  • No matter how spiritually dry you are, Jesus is waiting for you with open arms, ready to quench that thirst with the Living Water that He provides.
  • It’s not sustainable to think we can live in a Pinterest-perfect life.
  • Conforming means we are blending in with the world when we are called to be salt and light.
  • When we begin the transformation process, we see small results right away.
  • If you have time to scroll on social media, we have time to read the Bible.


Scripture References:

  • Romans 12:2 ESV “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
